Hello, my name is John, I am seeking first and foremost someone who is truly HAPPY, and knows that true happiness can only come from within. If you think you are that person, I would love to meet you.
So, who are you, and what do you look like? I'm not totally sure, but let's try the following for starters:
Y O U, Part 1:
Are you "traveling", taking charge of your destiny...OR...are you "sight-seeing", dropping in on a profile here and there and hoping chemistry will strike? Way too many sightseers on here, don't you think? Seems like the chief benefit of online dating: tons of variety, tons of choices is also its greatest downfall("Oh well, I don't click with him...NEXT"!!) So on and on it goes. If you're as tired of all that as I am, let's get to know one another. I know I'm worth it...how about you?
YOU, Part 2:
Are you intellectually curious? Do you understand that happiness comes from within and is YOUR responsibility, no one else's? Unafraid to show emotion and experience intimacy? Enjoy holding hands, surprise phone calls for any (or no) reason? Able to converse intelligently on a wide range of topics? Do you have a good sense of humor? REALLY like to kiss? Enjoy travel of all kinds, from “journeys to nowhere" to transcontinental and transoceanic escapades? Have romance in your heart? I would like to meet a woman who believes that real love can happen more than once in a lifetime, and, like me, is looking to find it again, one last time!!
Passionate, intelligent, HAPPY, loving, well-traveled, GREAT kisser, romantic, loyal, funny, supportive, articulate, spontaneous, sexy, environmentally aware, optimistic, spiritually grounded, truthful, adventurous, healthy...haven't played tennis in quite awhile, would love to get back on the courts again…….also studying French whenever I have a spare moment...much, much more, just ask.
Soooooooo, If YOU plus ME = US, what might that look like? How about this:
Rather than an instant heat, where the risk for burning out is high, how about a slow and steady flame that eventually ignites a passion. When it works, there is no work. You want to see me. I want to see you. There are no doubts, excuses, or maybes. We don't need to analyze the relationship. There are no games. The simplest moments together are easily life's most blissful. This is what it's all about……So why don't we talk and find out if there could be an "US"... I am smiling right now at the thought that someone out there wants to be an US as much as I do, someone who challenges me to take emotional risks and makes me feel safe as I take them.
Thanks so much for taking the time to peruse my profile, and good luck to all of us in finding that ever elusive, but "still out there somewhere" special someone. I appreciate your interest in me as a potential life partner.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Depending on the time of year, how about a picnic: stop at a local store to pick up some already prepared goodies in various shapes and sizes, go to a nearby park, and while away the afternoon with good food and sparkling conversation....or...if the weather isn't conducive, I suppose the default first date could be lunch in a quiet restaurant, anywhere we could sit and chat, get to know each other a bit, and decide on Date # 2(AKA our first real date).
