I used to start my profile with: "I'm new to this - hence the short profile.". However, four months into this, I intend on keeping it this way. Turns out, writing 10 paragraphs to spill your soul to thousands of strangers doesn't really matter or improve your success. You're only increasing probability of saying something that other people will consider nutty.
So in short, I am very driven, active, impatient, sarcastic and ambitious and know what I want from life. Love my work, ballroom dancing, tennis, addicted to great food, water, and laughing.
I hope you can match me in my love for fun, good food, being active, and help me make life even more exciting. MUST BE classy, smart, stylish, with sense of humor WELL above average.
If you start email with "we have a lot in common", you are guaranteed not to ever get a response. Because.... really???
P.S. I have tried this for a year and finally cancelled my membership - I have 2 months left, so if something meant to be... By the way, if this urges you to contact me and try harder, PLEASE really read my profile and what I'm looking for to see if there's a match. I meant every word, pinky swear.
