Hello All! I've been signed up on Match for a little while now thinking that because I have been away from the dating thing for quite some time, perhaps this would be a good way to get my feet wet. Sadly, now all I have is soggy feet as my luck has not been the best here in this dating cyberarena. Things have certainly changed in the last "few" years and I really don't know what to make of it all at times. Know that I actually read all of the profiles and emails that come my way and try to respond accordingly. Having said that, I am finding that most men are saying exactly the same thing. You are all amazing, loving, caring, wonderful, intuitive, hand holding, sunset watching, animal loving, woman spoiling glorious human male specimen. Whereas, I get that you are all trying to put your best face forward, obviously, after reading the same thing over and over again, I'm a tad bored with the Vanilla-like comments and am looking for a little creativity and honesty. Throw a girl some Rocky Road, please, and don't forget the whipped cream and sprinkles! I'm wondering if you are all so wonderful, how is it that you are all so single and in search of that one special woman...your soul mate...the last first date...your life partner...that ever elusive creature that fills your empty nights and lonely days...she who completes you? Now don't get me wrong. I do believe that "wonderful' exists. In fact, I'm counting on it. I'm looking forward to it. I'll find it. It's just that the generic diatribe makes it harder to find...to decifer...to glean away from the bulk of the boring rhetoric. So please tell me what makes you "you". At this stage of our lives, we have all been through a plethora of life experiences that have gotten us here...good and bad and yet, we are all pretty much in search of the same thing. So tell me what is unique, different, special about you.
About those pictures...I look at those to see what matters to you. Sometimes they tell a different story than what you actually say in your profile.They can reveal more about your character than mere words can. Are you posing in front of a mirror? Are you playing with your pets? Are you involved with your children? Are you partying like a rock star? Are you showing off your car, home, motorcycle, or other things meant to impress? Have you included pictures of the things that move you or the things that you think will move others?
About me...I think the most outstanding aspect of my personality is my honesty. I am confident and comfortable in my own skin. You can ask me anything, but be prepared. You may not be ready for the answer that you get. So on one hand it is a bonus you will never have to wonder what I"m thinking...I'll tell you...but you may not hear what you want or expect. I don't sugar coat things. I'm a grown up. I don't play games...so not interested and don't have the time. I am wicked smart and will not dumb it down just to make someone else feel more comfortable. You must be able to hold your own in a conversation with me. Now along with wicked smart comes wicked funny. I have the most twisted sense of humor...dark at times and sarcastic always...I can find humor in anything. This means that I find myself laughing out loud a lot...at myself.at others..but mostly myself. Sometimes I just think funny thoughts.
Now there is a sensitive side to me as well...a soft, sweet, marshmallowy (my word) center...a yummy treat saved for a special someone, for my friends, for my family...for those I care about and that care about me. I am fiercely loyal and dedicated. Friends and family are the center of my universe. I could do nothing, anything, everything with them and be happy and content. I am outgoing, compassionate, empathetic, generous (to a fault), open minded, non-judgemental, and open hearted. I strongly believe in being kind and compasionate to everyone as you never know what they have been through that brought them to this place in their lives.
