While I find online dating a bit bizarre, and prefer to meet people in person the old fashioned way, I've realized its a great way to meet people that you would not normally come across. With that said, I still think it is difficult to convey who you are or get a sense of a person through photos and a brief written blurb alone. I think in-person chemistry, rather than being an "email romeo," is paramount. I do not understand why people would lie about themselves on this, about what they do or look like, etc. I think the other person will find out the truth eventually ;)
I consider myself very outgoing and successful (and happy), and, simply put, am looking for someone great. I think my dating life thus far is akin to the U2 song lyric, "I still haven't found what I'm looking for." I believe in the importance of"fitness in body and mind," am musical, educated, cultured, artistic, have eclectic taste and appreciate those who enjoy/have the same (but who aren't overly elitist about it and can laugh when some "art" at the MOMA is just plain bad (for lack of a better word)). I am looking for someone who has their own goals, doesn't take things too seriously and, ultimately, wants to have fun and enjoy life. Also someone who doesn't get offended from a shirtless picture (I know I have one up here from a mud race, but I assure you, I'm not a Jersey shore "meathead" touting his abs). I am, at the end of the day, confident but self-deprecating. I like to wear a suit and go out and dance (but am over the club scene) or stay in for wine and a movie in sweatpants.
Randoms: My heroes are Mr. Darcy (Pride Prejudice), Indiana Jones (from Indiana Jones) and the man in black (Wesley) from Princess Bride. I can also dance salsa/merengue. Anything else, feel free to ask :)
