Like everyone else on Match, my ultimate goal is to find love. But unlike everyone else, I'll be completely honest and tell you my short-term agenda: I want a cuddle partner. Whereas many guys are wishing for sex after a couple dates, my interest is cuddling. It's just one of the ways I'm a departure from the standard. I've always been an original thinker, and it shows through in my personality. I identify more with artists, geniuses, and perverts than with "typical" people. That being said, I live a respectable mainstream life. Career professional, mature, intellectual...you can bring me home to mom and dad.
I envision myself as a ripe, juicy plum that's ready to be picked and turned into a delicious boyfriend / lover / husband / whatever. Or perhaps you're the plum and I'm a noble knight who's come to rescue you from the orchard and whisk you away on the back of my steed. Regardless of the story, in relationships I thrive on emotional intimacy and deep romantic affection. It's my instinct to take care of a woman and be her rock (or her daddy, if she's the kinky type). As a point of reference, I don't understand people who hate their exes...if I've bonded with you then I will always have your back, regardless of whether you've decided to stomp on my heart or not.
I believe the following numbers reveal a lot about me...
education: Ivy League
friendliness toward smoking, drugs, pot: 0
past girlfriends: 4
political leaning: left
religious affiliation: non-practicing
I'm a sweetheart and a gentleman and I'm very easy to meet for dinner...or perhaps a less conventional date if that's your style. Basic requirements: D/D free, not overweight, no kids, minimal tattoos or piercings, and not impossibly far from Hollywood. Beyond that, if I were narrowing it down further I would say be deep, be original, be talented and accomplished, and don't be too normal.
