I'm an idealistic realist, serious goof, practical artist, gregarious loner, cynical optimist and republican democrat; I'm a walking contradiction as most of us are I guess. And, if you're laughing right now, we might actually get along:) I love to write, paint, read, hike and hang out with friends. I'm always up for good conversation and am totally wowed when a woman has passions and interests beyond reality television, TMZ and her most recent call-back.
I'm old fashioned in a lot of ways. I prefer books over video games, a film over football and I've never been in a fantasy league of any kind. I believe in God, the Bible and Jesus and if you talk to me for five minutes you'll know I'm not your normal Christian. I have tattoos up and down both arms, don't wear khakis and wont tell you you're going to hell for checking the spiritual but not religious box:) I wake up everyday with the goal of pleasing God and hoping that I share some of His goodness with another. Somedays I succeed, somedays I suck. But I wouldn't trade it for the whole world.
So, what am I looking for? I don't know. I want to be awe struck. Not by looks or body and all that jazz but by their soul. I want the room to get a little brighter when they walk in. I want to sit and look at her years from now with one of my wry mischievous grins and giggle, yes giggle over how lucky I feel for having found her. And when she looks up to see that grin she knows what it means and her eyes sparkle because she feels the same.
Who is she? What's she look like? I have no idea. But if I had to guess and paint some broad strokes they might look something like this...she's honest, intelligent, creative, loving, appreciates wine and laughter, the smell of fresh rain and old books and maybe, just maybe has a dog eared copy of Norton's Anthology of Poetry lying around somewhere. She's young enough to have children but old enough to know who she is and what she wants. She's optimistic, friendly, affectionate, generous, she'd love to learn new things and would be polite to a busboy even when no one was watching.
In short, she'd be a good person inside and out. Not perfect, but a perfect compliment.
If you think this sounds like you...press that little smiley face up there and wink. Fate will take care of the rest:)
And one last thing, a Match.com disclaimer if you will. If I reach out to you, know that I don't do it everyday. Its pretty rare actually. And whether its a wink or hello, it means I've read your profile, probably more than once and feel that, at least from my end, we would be a match.If you feel the same, write back, if not, don't. No harm, no foul. If you stumble across my profile and feel similarly, say hello. It doesn't need to be much. Just a hi or a wink will do. If I feel we're a match I'll write back, if not, please don't take it personal, I mean no disrespect. I just want to avoid the email after email where we try to wow one another with how clever we are only to meet and have zero chemistry. It only takes one or two dates on here to know what I'm talking about. So my thought is this, lets scrap that, exchange numbers, have a coffee and see if sparks indeed fly. If so, awesome, we can do one of those cheesy eHarmony commercials(whoops wrong site, LOL) If not, I can guarantee good company, fun conversation and free coffee:)
