It seems "Profiles" never do a person with genuinely good intent any justice. If you must judge a person, know them first. I'm here to meet someone intelligent, decent and that considers the world and those around her to match. Heavy drinking is unacceptable, don't get me wrong, I'll have a beer or a mixed drink but you'll never catch me in a stupor... If you drink, you are using a drug too, so let's be fair. Moderate 4:20 is totally cool with me to be clear though. I have two BACs. I'm well read. I have my own car and my own income. I'm friendly, articulate and kind to those that can take kindness for what it is, not weakness or an opportunity. Be genuine and you'll at least find yourself, if not a significant other.
Everyone is different, but what I want from a first date is for my date to project who she is and strives to be. Some people put too much out there and that's not what is always most attractive to a potentially ideal suitor. Those that seek out these first date "show offs" thrive and even predate on the phenomenon. I don't expect to find someone systematically after posting this, but I appreciate being given the opportunity to be known and treated civilly, even if we find we are not compatible. These are strange days. Cheers and good luck!
