The RM Feel Up

I heard the oddest bit of information from one of my man friends recently.

He met a young lady in church that he took a shine to and then, *drum roll,* she did the "RM Feel Up."  I had no idea what he was talking about, so he explained:

"I've only HEARD about this until now...  When a young lady meets a gentleman, and she wants to know if he's a worthy young chap, she'll find some excuse to rub his arm.  If she can feel the sleeves of an undershirt, it's a good bet that he's an RM (Returned Missionary - for the LDS / Mormon church). "

Ladies, if any of you out there are guilty of this and I catch you, so help me...I will laugh.

Look at this amazing young man who is doing his best to come to church and is worthy enough to hold a calling and whom you are lucky enough to be associating with.  Get to know him before making a quick "feel up" judgement, please:-)  In the mean time, thanks for the chuckle.

That's just lame. Talk about judging a book by it's cover!

There was a kid at SUU who used to put ducktape around his thigh so it showed a line just above his knee... why he couldn't have worn boxers or briefs? I don't know... but it made me sick a bit as he wasn't even LDS but just liked playing the ladies.

wow.

ha ha - at least the eternal smile doesn't require physical contact!

Jerseylicious - who are you? You should be a follower! I like your comments!

That's terrible! One, there are exceptions to the serve a mission requirement (say, conversion later in life) and two, get to know a guy well enough first to say, "Hey, did you?"

Technically, Gingerstar, it's judging a book by its sleeve...

It's been my experience that the women who do this get EXACTLY what they deserve.

As wonderful as marrying an RM is, women who base their selection solely on that aspect are missing out on a lot of worthwhile, worthy young men.

On the flip side looks can definitely be deceiving, and not every honorable, worthy young man is a returned missionary.

Case in point: Mr. Wonderful.
And he's A LOT better than many RM's I know...

Okay, I grew up in Utah, went to BYU, and have been in singles wards for at least 13 years... and I have never heard of this. Meanwhile, I think the concept is weird. Just because a man is wearing garments, it doesn't mean he's a returned missionary. Weird.

After I read the title but before I read the post, I thought you might be blogging about one of my favorite jokes:

Q: What's the difference between an RM and a bathtub full of dirty water?
A: They both get all over you, but at least the tub leaves a ring behind.

I'm an RM, so it's ok for me to tell jokes like that.

It's totally gotta be safer on the legs than the arms, Riss. A dude's not gonna wear boxers that long. At least, I hope not.
