I have to admit that being single at this age and reading my fair share of profiles (yes I actually read the profiles and not just look at the pictures) has given me an increased sense of self and truly highlighted the most important traits I crave in a potential partner. I feel like I’m still learning about myself and trying to improve who I am, but here is a little peek inside me. I’m stable. I’m set in my career and very happy with it. I like to dance; not saying I can hold a rhythm, but not shy about shakin’ what my momma gave me. Versatile: You could take me to a flower show and I would probably enjoy it. Not that I would want to do that every weekend, but I could sure appreciate it. I have realized that friendships and relationships do take work and compromise, but are invaluable. I know that writing does not come naturally to me because this is taking gosh darn way too long already.
What I’m looking for in her: I could run down the list of the typical attributes, however, I’m pretty sure we all want honesty, trust, laughter, fun, etc. So I came up with a few that are very important to me. I have to thank my match experience for this one and should have mentioned it a long time ago. Nothing turns me off more than horrible displays of grammar, punctuation, and spelling in profiles. It should be comparable to polishing yourself for that important job interview so why not put in the effort to sound your best in your profile. This brings me to my next one, intellect. If bad grammar is such a turn off then you might imagine that an educated woman is a huge turn on as long as it is accompanied by the appropriate amount of modesty. Reliable: To me it is fundamental foundation of a solid relationship that says you are there for me and I’m there for you. Attitude is huge. Anyone can complain about their day at work or that someone cut them off while driving, but seeing the silver lining or just plain appreciating life is key.
Let the matching commence.
