About the Name Missy

As the symbol of slinky sexuality, the S sound (and the softly pronounced letter C) is responsible for all things, sexual, celebratory, sassy, sultry, sensual, and slippery. So when it occurs in words initialized by the maternal letter M, it’s responsible for the soft seduction in the words: massage, moist, misty-eyed, mushy, and modesty. That’s why, even though most MS people are known to be warm and emotionally available, there’s a little of the cheeky flirt in every one.

If, on your first meeting with an MS he or she appears shy and reserved, you should be aware that this is just a smokescreen. The reality is, these are driven people who know precisely what they want from life and have few qualms about how they go about getting it. Mind you, MSs are not particularly selfish in fulfilling their ambitions; they’re just committed to living life to its fullest and see no reason to beat about the bush. Things usually fall into place for these people even if they don’t seem to be working any harder than anyone else, so if it seems strange that your MS friends are never in a hurry, don’t make the mistake of thinking they have nothing going on. With such a clear sense of direction there’s no need to get their bonnets in a knot.

Despite their unruffled exteriors, MS people are drawn to simplicity and tend to feel a touch of claustrophobia when their lives get too busy or cluttered. They don’t require a great deal of space in which to be productive, but there’s an inner restlessness that drives them to keep reinventing themselves. This is why, when it comes to their careers they’re better off taking jobs in sales, customer service or even the travel industry… anything that allows for easy transfers and a high degree of freedom. The MS’ blend of natural caution and worldly intelligence also makes them ideal small business owners and managers. In most cases they are frugal and shrewd about how they spend their time and money, and although you wouldn’t characterize them as miserly, it’s unlikely that they’d be the ones to buy the first round.

When it comes to friendship and relationships in general, MSs are invariably demonstrative and can be counted on to come through in a pinch. Romance, while welcome in the MS’ world, is not always at the top of their priority lists, although flirting certainly is. It’s not that MSs aren’t able to function in monogamous relationships; it’s just that they don’t have the same enthusiasm for them as do traditional romantics. The longer they take to settle down, the better their chances for enjoying enduring unions.
