How do you write one of these without sounding banal since we all want the same thing. Lets see If I can do this coherently.
Me: I'm a confident up front person who wears his heart on his sleeve. No drama or games here: I don’t have the time or inclination. I take pride in being supportive, stable and emotionally available. I have a big caring heart and am pretty emotionally mature and balanced. Given the chance I am romantic and affectionate. I take joy in helping people and hope to make every contact a positive one. It’s difficult to get my feathers ruffled and I am levelheaded about just about everything. I have a laconic, dry sense of humor and laugh easily and often. I am often sarcastic and ironic but it’s all about laughter. I would rather have few close friends than hordes of acquaintances. If I call you friend there isn’t much I would not do for you. Since I don’t have much family it’s always been important to build my own. I try to surround myself with intelligent positive people, the kind of people I want to be myself. I am often stubborn and tenacious, not given to quit or give up easily. I like to stay active and go mountain biking and hiking as often as time permits. One of the reasons I love LA so much. You probably won’t find me running a marathon but I do need a new tennis partner ;) I like to snuggle in front of a movie at home, but I also like to go see live music as often as possible. Food, and trying new restaurants is a favorite past time. I don’t know much about theater or dance but they are things I would like to explore with a partner. I am looking for a serious connection and an honest partnership to enrich each other’s lives. BTW I can’t spell to save my life, but there are worse crimes in life
You: I am looking for a best friend, and a confidant. My Venus would be an active adventure seeker that likes to read and is well traveled. In short an intellectual. A smart woman is the epitome of sexy. My kingdom for a smart woman;) I don't suffer fools and flakes very well. I regard emotional stability very highly along with being, supportive and non judgmental. Honesty and straightforwardness is a must.
