From my recent relationship experience I've learned some things about myself and who I would like to meet. I'm a pretty independent guy and would like to meet someone similar. I don't have any absolute restrictions other than someone smart and funny, but my preference would be to date a non-smoker in her 30s at the same stage of their life as me, but that's not to say that exceptions can't be made if we really click otherwise. That being said, I don't really have any expectations or limitations from this site. I have made some very good friends on here.
I tend to think with my head and not my heart which often is a good thing but not always. I have a very logical mind. That doesn't mean my logic is always right. In fact I enjoy a good debate where the other person proves me wrong. For me, it's far more rewarding to have someone change my mind about something and have me admit to being wrong, than it is to keep arguing in circles because neither person has any intentions of listening to the other person's reasoning. That being said, I'm often not very serious. I'm a very sarcastic person and like to joke around a lot. I usually don't have too much trouble making people laugh (some more than others depending on their type of humour).
Sorry about the picture. No I'm not trying to fool anyone. I'm sure you can all clearly tell there is someone cropped out of it. It's just that I don't have many pictures of myself and the few I do have all have other people in them. I'm not much of a selfie taker. Further apologies are obviously owed for not having any pictures of my car or myself with my shirt off. I've been told many times that I look much better in person, but who's going to tell me otherwise? So take that for what it's worth.
So I see that a lot of you are the self-proclaimed "girl next door", well I'm not too sure what that means. I guess it's supposed to mean you are like Winnie Cooper or something, but even dirty crack whores live next door to someone...right? Or I suppose maybe they don't. I guess I wouldn't know.
It depends on the person and what our common interests are. Something fun and casual preferably. A movie doesn't really work unless you do something else before and/or after because you can't talk during a movie. Coffee or "a drink" is kinda boring. Sounds more like "lets see if you look like your picture" date, because that's about all that gets accomplished. I suppose you also find out whether or not one can afford a coffee. And yes I am biased because I don't drink coffee. I have all kinds of ideas but its hard to say which would be ideal before getting to know the person a little. Hopefully after getting to know them I/we would be able to come up with some even better ideas.
