First off, just call me Alex. If I have to describe myself in three adjectives- adventurous, witty, shy.
I am comfortable in any kind of surroundings. I am here because I am a hopeless romantic that is very shy, so the way I see it, I have two strikes against me. Because as a coworker just recently let slip- at first impression they thought I was uptight and naive. All that: just because I usually stay quiet- at least till I get more information about a person or subject. Anyways, when I was young (teenager) I had opinions, likes and dislikes ( and yes in a word- uptight). But life taught me to laugh, and not to judge, and just take it easy. It also taught me to think before I say anything. That does not help in the dating world. On any subject I can say three things or points of view but never to start a conversation. So if you are a woman that likes to talk, are intelligent and with a sense of humor. We would surely get along. Which is not to say I can not carry a conversation; I think all that I wrote here is an indication that I can carry a conversation and to take it to places it has not been before. Really ? You like to talk. I like to listen, think and get to know you through listening. I think that goes together. Or there was a question on an IQ test that I really liked when I was growing up- there was a picture of a pyramid made up of blocks. The Question was how many blocks is the pyramid made of in 3-D. The answers were every possible way of looking at it. So I started realizing that the answer is only as good as the question (and vice versa). If anything I wrote comes out as me being angry; well, it is possible and please accept my appology; but I am not changing what I wrote here for one simple reason, I think I covered most of the important topics in order for you to truly understand me.
Debating if I should add this; but my wit is quick and outspoken. And today I will try to demonstrate... I saw on a few profiles (yes, I can read and I do read what you write) that the common theme is "looking for a man's man" ( and along those lines) . So you can start with your definition of a man's man. Because the way I see it; Casanova went down in history as a man's man. He was born in a Bordello and not in a gym. So Mr. Universe he was not. He simply knew what women wanted. But Arnold would have described him as a "girlie man". And most of you want someone that is taller than you ( I am of average height-5' 7") which is fine I guess, but according to the women I grew up with-you all also have a fondness of high heals. So all I can say to that, is do not slap me but I am truly trying to look you in the eyes. And women in general love to talk and gossip. Which is fine with me. Because I like to listen. But half of you are looking for an intelligent man. You all must have a death wish or you really like to argue. Which I do not. I am like that teacher that is taught by his students. So how am I doing, how far in is my foot in my mouth ? Also another common theme is the love of the outdoors. Which I also love. To the extent that on viewbug (at least for now) where I show my photography my username is wideopenspaces (in other words copy/paste the following: http://www.viewbug.com/member/wideopenspaces). Thank god for my passion of the outdoors, because I was sent out a lot. But the thing I like the most on one hand, you all say 'that he needs to carry a conversation'. And yet either your profiles are non-existent or your replies are." Hello, How are you ?" is not a reply. It is not a conversation. So now you also see the other reason why I chose the username of omg_alex. At the moment I do not much care the kind of personality the other person has as long as they can talk in full sentences and to be able to use more than three sentences in a logical conclusion.
The ultimate short version of this lengthy profile is this; say hi if you want to. Ask any questions that you want an answer to. And have a great sense of humor (i do have a tendency to put my foot in my mouth, which I think I did in spades).
Now if you really want to know me or just like to read, I can add the following. In regards to my username here; it was a combination of the first thing that came to mind ( I usually like to joke around) and that I am honest to a fault (thus, foot in mouth syndrome). But I would like to say I am honest but not stupid. What is the difference ? Common sense and sensitivity.
How to describe myself...Never knew how to answer that. So then I thought of- 'your passions show who you truly are'. So I started looking at my photos. I like the city ( having grown up in NYC) but I prefer the country and nature. I never could breach the first steps of dating ( that of starting a conversation- shown by my less than perfect portraits). But I am sensitive ( shown by my city life and still live photos). Love animals, sometimes more than people. Well, this is the beginning, but in order to be brief and not to bore, I will say ciao for now.
Anything really, I'm pretty easy-going, I like being outside when it's warm. To me, movies are really only good after we do something else first, where we get to know each other a little(at a coffee shop for a cup of coffee and a good conversation).
Or;Mondays to Thursdays; let us meet for coffee and a good conversation. Maybe brunch or at a park. Fridays & Saturdays; same as M-Th but also add a comedy club, dancing, or whatever sounds interesting. Sundays-Your choice; I am flexible and I have the whole day.
I may sound boring, but this section is a little like- well to put it differently- being asked what you will do on vacation. We all know what we like to do on vacation. But once you get to your destination, you discover that you arrived during the rainy season, there are renovations going on at the place you will be staying and some of the places that you want to visit are/will be overcrowded. So there are two possibilities 1) you pack your things and go someplace else or 2) you deal with it. I am more with the latter possibility- I learned to deal with it, to change according to my surroundings. I may know what I like, what will be fun doing and what is the best for a first date, but I can adopt according to what the other says. After all, the most important aspect of any relationship is the ability of communication.
