-------Hey! Hey you! Did you send me a message to which I failed to respond?!---------
There are a couple potential reasons for this. Either:
1.)I'm not interested
2.)You creep me out
3)I'm on mobile and the effort of responding via phone is too daunting
4)I'm on mobile, you creep me out, and I'm still not interested
Chances are, it's number three. Rather than sending multiple angsty messages demanding to know why I read your missive and failed to return the gesture, give me some time. If you find someone else with whom to correspond in the meantime, it's my loss. Even if the justification is not, in fact, number three, I'm unlikely to tell you so, so be comforted by the fact that it is -potentially- for that reason and none other that I failed to respond.
As an expert in all things me, it's tough to pare down exactly who it is that I am without throwing in all the details that make those first early dates fun and intriguing. Further, when you take the time to really lay bare your essential 'you', so much of it is a wasted effort - what I perceive isn't necessarily what the next person will see!
The basic, undisputed facts:
I'm optimistic, always willing to see the silver lining in life's many unsurprising slumps. I think (know) I'm hilarious, and I seriously crack myself up. I have a deep appreciation for scaring people by way of jumping out of dark rooms and sneaking up behind my victims. I have a son who has thankfully inherited my humor gene. I'm a huge fan of gaming, baseball games, and puzzles. I love playing cards. As evidenced here, I'm a bit competitive.
What's the deal on what I perceive as my perfect match? A touchy subject as likely to exclude perfectly suitable fellows as it is to entice the entirely wrong ones. If I'm attempting to whittle it down to exactly for what it is I am searching, it would boil down to someone who keeps me entertained (I'm sorry, I get bored easily), that can match wits on a variety of topics, that cares about current events (the news is on whenever I'm at home), has a great, infectious smile, and who can make me laugh regularly. This isn't rocket science, after all (but being a rocket scientist -may- help your chances)!
The truth of the matter is that I'm pretty content with my life right now. I won't expend the effort on someone who doesn't immediately grab and hold my attention. Add in any sort of distance, and things are bound to go sour quickly if there isn't a true and meaningful spark.
