Although I am studying English in college, and have had to write numerous papers on myriad subjects, I am not quite sure how to proceed with this particular piece. I think, however, that my modesty, combined with my lack of experience in marketing, make writing an advertisement for myself a rather daunting task; but, here it goes: I am a 36 year old man with three children who I see on a daily basis but do not live with me. They are older than you would expect, judging from my age, but I got an early start--my oldest being 17 and my youngest, 11. I am currently attending college pursuing what used to be a degree in English education, but has recently been modified to a degree in English alone (I am almost done!! Although I do hope to go back for my masters eventually). I absolutely love the English language in all its forms—books, poetry, film, music, conversation, and whatever other media form you can think of that employs words. Now I will try to sell myself: I am a funny guy (or so I think), I am an intelligent guy (or so I think), and I am pretty darn charming and romantic (or so I think). I am not what you would call a “man’s man”; I am not too into watching sports on TV, I don’t drive a nice hot-rod, and “I’m a lover, not a fighter” (in my best Michael Jackson voice).
If I had to say what I was looking for in the way of a woman, and I could only use three adjectives, I would have to say intelligent, funny, and cute; if I had to throw in another adjective (or two), I would say fun and open-minded. This website seems to place a great deal of emphasis on shared interests and activities; I find this silly. I find a certain kind of allure in trying new things and trying to improve myself—and what better way to do so than spend time with someone different from yourself. Essentially, I feel that I would love almost any activity as long as it was in the company of the right person (and I stress the “almost” here—while they might be blurry, I DO have some lines). Overall, I guess I am just looking for someone to laugh with, someone to converse intelligently with, and someone to explore life with-eventually the rest will fall into place.
I should also add that I am extremely nervous doing this whole online dating thing—I’m actually kind of uncomfortable about dating in general (it has been awhile for me). So if you feel so compelled, please get ahold of me, I’d love to meet you I’m sure. Adios!!
