I've decided to rewrite my entire profile description because I thought I used "I" too much which made it seem like I was more focused on who I am than on what I'm looking for in a match. In the first sentence of this new description I already used "I" six times. So far, I'm off to a bad start. Seven.
In all honesty, I shouldn't feel so bad about using "I" so much - why wouldn't I know more about myself than a person I haven't even found yet? That being said, there are some things I know for certain I'm looking for.
My physical attraction to a woman has more to do with her posture and the way she moves than with the size of any of her features. Being fun and energetic is great, but rollercoasters need drops for excitement - there's nothing wrong with being a little cynical every now and then. Creativity is extremely sexy. Anything under 5'8" is best for spooning, anything under 5'2" risks having short sons. A strong work ethic is one of the most important traits a person can have. And that doesn't mean killing yourself with work. Brunettes are more intriguing than blondes. Maybe it's because they appear to have darker personalities. A woman who is vulgar or crass is fun at the bar, but femininity - a woman who is soft, delicate, sweet-smelling - is more desirable to bring home.
There. An entire paragraph without using "I". As for me, I'm not here to hookup. I'm looking for someone I can start a family with. I'm looking for someone I can share my life with. I'm here because truthfully, I know exactly what I'm looking for but I haven't found it yet.
Upon request, below is my original profile -
I can't stand still on escalators.
I like to plan as much of my time as possible so that I have opportunities to be as spontaneous as possible.
I think every man should try to grow a beard at some point in his life (despite photos, I don't have one right now).
I make terrible first impressions but given enough time, I can win over anyone.
I live a double life. I'm the life of the party one night and the one who stays home the next. I can work seven days a week, sleep four hours a night, and still have a social life or I can take two naps on one lazy Sunday. I'll have meaningful, involving conversations about human nature with one group of friends and make top five celebrity lists with another.
I want a woman who lives a double life like me.
One that looks good in sweatpants but will drop jaws at a wedding. One that loves to go out on a Friday night and spend all day Saturday in bed. One that can talk about the things in life that really matter or which baseball player is dating which pop star.
I want the kind of woman that makes me forget other women even exist. I want the kind of woman who makes me excited to come home from work each day. I want the great woman they say is behind every great man, and I want her to stand beside me.
For those looking for a more traditional description of who I am and what I'm looking for, I'll say this -
I do not own any Ed Hardy or Affliction shirts.
I do not live with my parents and I do not play video games.
I have a VERY dry sense of humor. I often have to assure people, "I wasn't serious."
Although most people think by looking at me that I'm a clean-cut guy, I like people with an edge.
I want a woman who has a dark, sinister side. That doesn't mean she needs to be bitchy or rude, but there's nothing wrong with a little mischievousness and risk taking.
