ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

My original profile, like most, was filled with platitudes, probably in an attempt to cast as wide a net as possible. I figured filtering people out before I had a chance to meet them was a bad approach to online dating. But to be honest, I'm tired of meeting people only to find that we are not even remotely compatible. It's both exhausting and demoralizing.

People often ask me what kind of person I am looking for. Before, I was never quite able to articulate it, but going on numerous Match dates has brought into focus the qualities that are important to me. So in that sense, though tedious, all those experiences were not without value.

Someone once told me that we are all so preoccupied with what we are looking for in someone else when what we should be focused on is what it is that we have to bring to the table. He said that we should list all the qualities that we hope find in another person and then we should be those things. So here's my list. It is both what I am looking for and what I am trying to be.

Introspective. No one is perfect. Being able to thoughtfully acknowledge one's own shortcomings and strive to become better is on the top of my list.

Kind. Not just to one's friends, but to everyone. Strangers, wait staff, children, animals, the guy standing at the freeway off-ramp. You don't have to give him money, but at least acknowledge his existence. He is a person too.

Generous. Not to a fault, but the world could use more generosity.

Curious. There's a lot to know out there. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, small minds talk about people." Let's talk about ideas.

Informed. There is more to this world than what is happening in our own lives. There are issues and problems that are bigger than what we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Though we may not always agree on the solution, I think it's important to care enough to have an opinion.

I'm not so concerned with ethnicity, though I understand that many people are and they have every right to have that as a criterion. I don't have any strict requirements on education, though I find that there is a high correlation between the qualities that I am looking for and certain levels of educational attainment. Nor am I looking for anyone of a particular faith, as long as we can all keep an open mind.

That's it. It's not a long list and yet I've found these qualities fairly elusive in the people that I meet. I don't think this is what most people are striving to be nor what most people are looking for in someone else. I think that is a large part of the difficulty I have had. So if these words resonate with you, I would love to hear from you.

I should also add that I do have a sense of humor, it just didn't seem appropriate to mix genres in this blurb. If you like Family Guy, Arrested Development, Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K., we're probably on the same wavelength. And we don't have to talk about our shortcomings, the Higgs boson particle and North Korea all the time. That would also be tedious and exhausting.
