Here is my tribute to sweet, romantic and semi-idealistic profiles whose naive-seeming luster that you let slide, because they restore your sense of OKness...Despite a hearty, but loving mocking from my all-too-straight and very handsome single guy friend who helped me revise this:
A man I want to date and I are good to each other, ourselves and everyone else. We typically pay our bills on time and laugh often - usually at ourselves and/or at this crazy, cool world. We both try to be all-around great people.
This man gets along well with his family. His friends and co-workers respect him and his ex-girlfriends' mothers would still say nice things about him, if you asked. He has to be perfectly happy staying in California, if he found the right woman. He has to understand that my two dogs and I are a package deal.
Relatively nice teeth and good oral hygiene are must-haves, as is a pretty balanced lifestyle. All-around robust health and general self-respect are extremely important to me. That's what you will find of me and that's what I want in return. No drugs and nothing else to excess.
I am a lady usually and expect him to be a man. Trustworthy, respectful, kind and strong.
My deepest affections are for men who are striking at first glance, but grow considerably more attractive the more we get to know each other. Please have at least a few collared button-downs.
At the end of the day, it should always be more important to you to have done the right thing than to have had the last word. You should expect the same from me as well.
Quick note: Gamblers, vegetarians, braggarts, cat men, rogues hoping to find a lion tamer/lady savior, guys who always seem to "leave (their) wallet in (their) 'Armani' pants at the dry cleaners" the very night you have a date, Kenny G/Yanni/Celine Dion fans, men who think that going to Burning Man is the closest they will ever come to having a religious experience and men who usually date slash marks - actress/model/dog walkers, screeenplay writer/life coaches, psychic reader/intimate masseuses - or who are themselves slash marks, and men whose profile is in all caps would have better luck hitch hiking on Vinson Massif. No offense to any of the aforementioned intended.
If you misrepresent any of your vital stats on here, e.g. your age, your marital status or your position regarding Jimmy Buffett, I really will not be cool with that.
As for me, I've been tempted to change my handle to "SexyGoofball," but A) that's most likely already taken and B) I don't want to get on a bad side with either career goofballs or bona fide sex icons, e.g. Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford and my Communication Studies prof junior year in college.
I'm goofy and happy and tend to take myself too seriously sometimes...but then laugh myself breathless when I discover what a goof I was to do so. On some level, I think that ability in people can be sexy. You get the idea. I hope.
Whenever I check this site, I am usually very impressed by the interesting and exciting men on here. Good luck to all of us.
