OK. So, I'm pretty new to the online dating thing. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it at this point. At first I was opposed to this because I thought that all relationships should begin organically. This seems forced. But, now that I've joined, I might as well get the most of it.
I want to start off by saying, I absolutely HATE writing an email to a stranger whom I've never seen/met in person. Nothing can replace eye contact, voice inflection, body language, etc. So, when I re-read what I write to people, I feel like I sound like a complete tool. Oh well. But, lets be honest, since you and I have never met in person, this is just the dating equivalent to Amazon.com. Therefore, I'm going to be brutally honest about the person I am and the person I'm looking for. There's no reason to lie or put things in my profile because I think that's what you want to hear. If a guy says he likes long walks on the beach and going to the ballet, he's lying. Sorry, but it's true. I'm not opposed to doing those things, but they certainly wouldn't be my first suggestion. So, here's me. No BS. I'm not into wasting my time or yours. Here goes:
I can be awkard when you first meet me. I love punctuation. I know the difference between "you're" and "your" as well as "too" two" and "to." I paid attention in school so I was able to retain that information. I'm Jewish but I love pork. I had a chorizo burrito for breakfast this morning and I loved it. It would've been better if it was wrapped in bacon. I love hanging out with my friends. I'm a definitely a FOMO (fear of missing out). When my friends are out doing something, I have to be there. What if something amazing happens and I miss out? I LOVE being the center of attention. And consequently, I tend to be the life of the party. I love going to work everyday. It's as weird to type as it is to say. But, I love going to work and striving to excel. I'm definitely a people pleaser. This is my greatest gift and biggest downfall. I don't plan on changing...sooo...yeah. Under no circumstances will I ever write "LOL." I'm guilty of using a "smily face" here and there. I hate when I do it but for some reason at certain times I'm compelled to do so. However, NEVER will I use that with my guy friends. That's just weird. I have a ton of guilty pleasures. While I love hard rock music, I also have quite an incriminating playlist on my iPod. If you looked at my song list, you would think you picked up a 15 year old girl's iPod, not a 34 year old mans iPod. Besides the standard tv shows that most people like, I have a special place in my heart for The Hills and Laguna Beach. I can't explain it, but I love those shows. I think I'm hilarious. I tend to amuse myself on a daily basis. I enjoy going snowboarding but I don't do it enough. I like trying to surf. I suck but it's fun and a good workout. I love baseball and the Dodgers. I LOVE the Dodgers (and apparently I love using capital letters for effect). I grew up watching the Dodgers and if I ever witness them win another World Series I would probably cry. Seriously. Oh, and I've been known to cry in movies. I cried in Titanic and Jerry Maguire. I also cried in 8 Below.
At this point in my life, I'm tired of meeting girls in bars and not having a true connection. It would be nice to have a real relationship. That being said, this is what I'm looking for in a girl:
Be normal. I don't think that's too much to ask? Seriously.
Have a job
Be pretty; attraction is huge in a relationship so why lie and say it's not. Although, someones personality can definitely make them better looking
Have direction and goals
Have morals and values
Be smart. You don't have to be a genius but at least be able to carry a conversation with me, my friends and family.
Enjoy fun. I absolutely love fun. If you aren't a fan of fun, we'll never work. I work hard so I tend to play hard. God, I feel like a douche for writing that last sentence. But, it's true.
