So it bugs me that more and more women seem to be going the “just ask” route for their profile text. It’s equivalent to guys only saying “hey baby” or “you’re hot” in their first email. It’s lazy and apathetic. I don’t want to waste my time trading emails with someone only to find out that their favorite pastime is mud riding and they’re hardcore Trump supporters. See, now you either like me a lot more or like me a lot less. So say something interesting. It saves everyone time and you’ll have better connections. That being said, here’s what I’m about:
So what do you want to do? Go to an outdoor festival, see some live music, catch an LSU game? How about a movie, a play, or a museum? Perhaps take a daytrip to New Orleans? Do you want to try a new restaurant? Or we can just stay home and cook up something delicious while sharing a bottle of wine. Any other interests? Just let me know. There is a catch, though. You must have a good sense of humor and be able to carry on a conversation. The humor part is most important; life is simply more fun when you're laughing. I'd like someone who can laugh at herself and can appreciate my witty yet sometimes corny sense of humor. Even better if you can dish it out too. If you’re actually keeping up with the Kardashians, then we probably won’t get along.
I tend to have a positive outlook and not let the little things in life get me down. Although I’m a fairly easy-going guy, I am also very hard working and responsible. I enjoy being both creative and analytical and I get to do that in my current job. However, work isn’t everything and you need a good social balance so here I am looking to meet some new people and have some fun. It’s so hard to tell by just a profile what someone is really like so I think it never hurts to trade a few e-mails and see how it goes.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first date is simply to see how we interact. Online dating sites have their benefits, but you really don’t get a good feel for someone until you meet them in person. So a casual dinner or maybe just drinks to see how we click.
