I really dislike this part of the process. A man can easily come off either sounding like an Egomaniac or a Wuss while describing oneself. I shall now attempt to do neither. LOL So what's a madman to do? How about I supported the Equal Rights Amendment because I felt that women should be eligible for a military draft (it is their country too) and have always looked for in a girlfriend a best friend, a lover, and a partner (LOL...many are called few are chosen). I am intelligent, well informed, and a good conversationalist. I refuse to "do" the normal dating scene, I feel it is bogus and if I feel that way about something I won't participate in the facade. As for selecting "Other Relationship" as what I'm looking for, "Looking to fall in love and marry an intelligent, gorgeous, stacked, young heiress who is totally devoted to me and my wants and needs" wasn't one of the choices. I have much younger point of view than my contemporaries and my co-workers thought I was in my mid 30's until I told them my real age, so I guess I look younger than I am. I am heavy set and am looking to the prospect and project of getting into better physical shape after a long period of neglect due to career demands, which have now slackened finally. I have been adopted by a kitten recently and have come to love the little **stard (he's a lot like me, LOL) so whoever might be interested must be able to deal with cats. I have a tendency to be cynical and sarcastic so narcissists need not apply( unless you look like Elizabeth Taylor in her 30's). I am open minded to most things but I don't tolerate fools very well.
The truth of the matter is I need someone intellectually stimulating and not just locked into the drudgery of everyday existence. Someone who can still have flights of fancy and is not necessarily trapped into something silly like reality TV. Isn't the reality of one's own life enough without seeing somebody else's reality as edited by someone with too much money and a coke habit? (If it isn't drugs, what excuse can TV executives use for the crap they feed us?) OOOPS! I gotta lighten up!
I guess I'm looking to connect with someone who doesn't fit the normal mold that society has pressed them into-someone who itches to break out of what life and society has hammered them into-not forever but a break from it now and then. Perhaps something with whimsy? Perchance I ask too much.......
I hope there's one that seeks for me,
With starlit eyes and open mind.
Whether over mountains or some sea,
Shall fly for me, leave cares behind.[/]
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well I don't know, does this mean first meeting or first DATE? First face to face meeting maybe coffee somewhere overlooking the water, so I can jump in the lake when I'm told to. LOL Now first DATE, that would be different! Maybe a lazy romantic afternoon touring an arbattoir or an art museum, then a relaxed dinner of gourmet food & wine but without all the fine dining fuss. Then going to someplace without the city lights to where we can actually see the sky and stars! That would be a good first date I think.
