I find it very surprising that every girl on match is looking for someone who’s funny, honest, loyal, and smart and they still haven’t found me. I’m right here :-P. But the truth is that the number one thing that girls look for in a guy is physical attractiveness. Let’s be honest, the first thing you do when you look at a guy’s profile is go through his pictures. If you find him somewhat attractive and meets the minimum attractiveness criteria you set for yourself, then you proceed to read his profile… and even then, you may not have the patience to go through the whole thing. If the poor bastard doesn’t meet the criteria, you probably skip to the next profile. It’s okay, I’m not calling you out. I’m guilty of it too. It’s only normal. I mean… if you meet someone in person and you don’t find them attractive, you probably wouldn’t be very interested in them. I feel like most people don’t mention it as a criterion for “what they’re looking for” out of fear of being judged as superficial. I beg to differ. I will not judge you.
That being said, I know I’m not perfect looking (or perfect, for that matter). Certainly not like the guy from the Old Spice commercial… not Terry Crews, the other one… he’s on a horse. I used to have a goat when I was a kid, but if I say “I’m on a goat”, then that’s just weird and people would get the wrong idea. Anyway, as far as appearance goes, I try not to comply with that image the media portrays of how a man should look. I am a manly-looking man. I look rugged, I have a bit of fat around my belly, and I have hair on my chest. It keeps me warm in the winter, and it provides excellent, comfortable cushioning if you were to put your head on my chest. Forget Tempurpedic… this stuff is way better. I work out not to get sculpted muscles, but to be healthy. You won’t find me at the gym benching 300 pounds, but you’ll find me running 10 miles around the track under 7 min/mile.
If you’re still reading, then I am shocked that you have tolerated my little rant so far. Give yourself a pat on the back. Now I suppose it’s only fair that I tell you a little more about myself. Among the clich? things you read in every profile, I do enjoy travel. It’s a vast world and there is a lot to see out there. I enjoy cuddling and watching a movie (contrary to myth, manly men do enjoy cuddling). I enjoy spending time with friends and family. If there is something that I am passionate about, it would probably be spending time with my son, Yes, I do have a gorgeous 7 year old. It’s, unfortunately, a deal breaker for many, but I understand and respect where those many come from, so it’s cool. Little man lives with his mom and her husband and I get him on the weekends. She’s a great woman and a great mother and we are good friends and try to work things out to our kid’s best interest.
I believe there are 3 essential components for a relationship to work; Honesty. Communication. Compromise. I wrote this whole thing about those things explaining why I think they’re so important, but I have reached the maximum character count limit. If you wanna know what I think, please feel free to email me and I’ll tell you all about it. I promise you it will be enjoyable to hear and you might even get a chuckle out of it.
If you’re still reading up to this point, then maybe I captured your attention. So, please proceed to the next section and maybe I’ll get more interesting. Hey… what else are you gonna do? Watch TV? They’ve re-run that episode of Family Guy 637 times. Unless it’s Thursday night, then you should probably watch Archer and then come back to this… only Archer gets a pass.
