If I read one more profile that says something about "living life to its fullest" I think I'll scream. My apologies if this is in your profile, but you should know that this phrase seems to be in every other female profile on this site. Just what the hell does that mean anyway?? It sounds very tiring.... And what's wrong with doing things half-assed? I don’t mean the important things in life but come on, no one REALLY gives 100% in everything. And besides, do you know how much fun you can have just goofing off and hanging out? Especially if it is with the right someone. I KNOW you know what I'm talkin about.
Don't take me wrong. I apply myself when I have to. And I do enjoy going, seeing, and doing. But lets face it ladies (I'm assuming there are no guys looking at my profile....and if they are, I'm not talking to them anyway) its so much more about who you are with and enjoying their company rather than having some bucket list longer than Chile that you're trying to complete. Why would you want that pressure??
So here's some things to know about me. I have a very healthy, corny and goofy sense of humor courtesy of my parents. I am occasionally accused of being old fashioned. I'm very interested in and stay up on current affairs/politics. My views are very much that of a capitalist with a strong belief in small government and low taxes. I do love to discuss current affairs/politics with someone who is informed and has at least somewhat similar views as mine or at least is open-minded. If you have zero interest in keeping up with what's going on in the world then we might just bore each other in conversation. I have buns of steel. Ok, I just slipped that one in to see if you were paying attention. Yeah, I’m a nerd/dork...but not the annoying abrasive type...more like the really endearing type! My Dad is my hero. I'm not saying my Dad could beat up your Dad, but he's a hell of a guy. More importantly, he was married to my mom for 51 years and tended to her every need in her final months when she required around the clock care. If I can be half the man he is then I'll be doing good. I love to play games…..well most games. I love a good movie (think indie or foreign), but I avoid most of the Hollywood tripe. I place a lot of value on humility. I dislike confrontation….but will embrace it when I feel strongly about something. I also love good coffee and simply must have it in the morning…..and you really don’t want to talk to me before I do. I really hate and have very little patience for jealousy. I rarely if ever get jealous. No, I’m not a rock. If there is someone out there better for you, then you should go do/find that. Some women mistake jealousy for caring. To me it's about insecurity and very disrespectful and insulting to your partner. If you think anger and possessiveness is a legitimate way for your man to express his love for you, then we're probably not a match.
So who am I looking for? Last year I had an experience that lacked openess and honesty and ended tragically. I guess before last year, I've been very fortunate in my dating life and thus took those qualities for granted. I won't make that mistake again. Many people may think they possess those qualities, but the most difficult person to be honest with is often ourselves. I will trust again, but it will take work and probably cannot be given upfront. Perhaps that's how it should be. Something so valuable should be earned don't you think? And I do believe in reciprocity so I fully expect to have to earn your trust as well.
There's a comfort level and easiness with someone who's right for you, and a desire and ability to spend a lot of time together without getting tired of them. This “chemistry”, for lack of a better word, is very difficult to define or predict. So I guess we should just start with what I've written about myself and the more you and me have in common the better.
