Online dating is kinda like playing poker.........you must think about many different things during the "game". Like knowing the difference about when to bluff or when your getting bluffed. You also have to be able to read the other person and be aware of tilts, tells, and reading hands and situations.
In other words, online dating is a huge gamble. If you're lucky...you might just get the right hand and win real big. If you're not..well then its time to fold.
With all the millions of singles there are in the world you would think it would be really simple for two people to find each other.
I guess its also like hitting the lottery - you need a one in a million chance and a kiss from lady luck to win. So, I started making my way through this dizzying, online, dating maze over summer and then took a break offline for awhile. Now, Im back to roll the dice.
I have looked at a few profiles and I have had a few dates but no tryst with lady luck so far- Im guessing I have about 999,980 more dates to go before I get to hold that winning hand.
So despite the gamble, here I am.
I am a sassy, very attractive, brainiac with a twist - fun, cool, hip, edgy single mom seeking honest, virtuous, chivalrous, attractive great man for friendship, several platonic dates and then, if cupid's arrow strikes, possibly more!
Not looking to force anything, just ready to meet new people and enjoy getting to know you better.
Love to read, talk and enjoy being with the people I love and care about the most.
Good combination of intellect and class but not stuffy or "school marmish" either.
Sophisticated but edgy.
Outgoing but not loud or boisterous.
Mature but not old.
Responsible but not boring.
My ideal partner is someone content enough to sit back with me to enjoy all the good times we share but who does not hesitate to step up, take my hand and share the burdens of life with me when and if the occasion arises. After all, its a partnership, right?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - we should find each other attractive and have chemistry (obviously). We only see with our eyes but we feel from the heart. If its meant to be, we should be "feeling" each other (figuratively, not pejoratively speaking of course ;).
Looking for someone to complement my life, not complicate it.
And yes....Im 40...and those pics are recent. Believe it or not, I still get proofed when I go out for a drink. Good genes, I guess.
I think music is one of those things that connects people who might not otherwise have any connection at all. So luckily, my taste in music is very eclectic. I love most anything except rap, country or thrash metal. I also dont understand 8 bit, dubstep and any of that drop beat sort of thing. Current favorites include The Swell Season, Marketa Iryglova and Glen Hansard, College, Taylor Swift and of course my staple playlist includes Sarah Mclachlan, Audioslave, Chris Cornell, Sade, The Smiths, etc...and lets not forget Monster Ballads, because a girls gotta be able to whip her hair around when she sings.
Think we might be a match? Please reach out and say hello - maybe its just a silly quirk of mine, but I prefer genuine attempts at a conversation to break the ice as opposed to single word sentences. So, please dont be offended if I dont reply to short sentence or one word messages- Im a bit of a book worm, I love to read messages that make an effort to capture my attention and I will reciprocate.
About 999,980 dates to go, some sheer luck and fate- and we'll be face to face meeting soon.
Will it be you and I?
