Looking for the white picket fence, your “soul mate” or Mr. Right? Well, I hate to be the bearer of unpleasant news – but that's all fairy tale stuff for little girls. Life doesn't come wrapped up with a pretty bow - and neither do people; certainly not any of us lucky folks filling out "about me" descriptions here.
Well truth be told, I'm above this posing and self-marketing shenanigans. I don't have the time or patience to be one of 100-plus suitors that you'll dismiss at a moment's glance. I'm better than that. Yes I am.
I'm sure if you are even remotely attractive, you've already been bombarded by all the he-man, swashbuckling, action heroes match.com has to offer. But you're still looking, still clicking. So what’s the deal?
Sure - I've got the basics covered. Job - check; doesn't live with parents - check; no criminal record (in USA) - check; more hair on head than back - check.
And although I am mild-mannered, humble and can pretend to be normal in social situations, I have acquired special talents only the very best can appreciate. Such as: determining the color temperature of ambient light; pouring a mean cocktail; power tools kept in more than one room; can read Cyrillic; Mac and PC.
When I think of the women I've dated (and even married) - they're all completely different. So hate to say what I'm looking for as I obviously haven't quite got that figured out. My prequalifications are listed here and you do need to be interesting on some level. "Normal" doesn't do it for me. Match doesn’t have a check box for many things I find desirable. In fact they rejected my Date Spark idea and suggested I “review the guidelines and submit an appropriate date.” FML
So, if you're fine with continuing to click and dismiss all the hungry guys dancing like little puppy dogs in your IN box - all power to you. But, if you're ready to break out of the mold and dip you toe into something new, you'll need to step it up a bit. No need for a lengthy, award winning essay - but winking won’t cut it either. Give me a little something to work with!
What say you?
