Thanks for visiting my profile.
It is always tough to write about yourself in situations like this. You want to put your best foot forward to catch someone's attention, but you don't want to come off too full of yourself to reveal that you really want to date yourself.
I asked friends to help and that went haywire depending on their moods. So after reading a bunch of profiles on Match.com, I felt a little more inspired.
I find this website a great tool in meeting people that I would not have met otherwise. Most of my friends are married with kids, so my parties went from groups of alcohol imbibing people falling all over the place to still now people falling over the place but only they lack balance, are on a sugar high and are in single digit age bracket. But I am ok with that! I was never the club and bar scene person. I always enjoyed the people I was with and being able to find the funny in any situation.
I do find it funny that Match.com has a disclaimer about not doing a background check although they ask you about everything else. Maybe a CarFax for dating? Only because the web allows for the kooks a wider audience.
And what is the etiquette in winking? I have been guilty of winking despite profiles saying not to wink or don't respond to the wink. I get the wink is one step above walking past a construction site and being whistled at. But sometimes you just want to say "HI" and see what happens. And in the ladies defense, I think that women should have an extra button to allow them to respond to the wink such as a "mace to the eye" button or "eye poke" button, just to allow them not to be winked to death every couple days.
So enough about random things. I am just like everybody else out there or what they write about themselves to be. I am an easy going person who loves to travel and spend time with family and friends. I work in cancer research which is my calling. I never get to see my friends enough as they are all spread out and now many with families. I never realized how hard it would be to meet normal single people, let alone normal single people you would want to date. But I am looking for someone substantial with whom I can do things I like and also for her to open me up to new things that she likes.
I am looking for a pretty, nice, ambitious, down-to-earth, family oriented person. And there seems to be plenty of that out there, but at the end of the day it is chemistry and luck. So just looking to get lucky...I mean lucky in meeting someone off this site as per the commercial.
