Some people just want someone, even though they know it probably won't last. A wise person wants someone that complements, (and compliments?) appreciates, and brings out the best in them, and for whom they do the same, knowing that finding them will be worth the wait. The traits we value in ourselves tend to be ones we value in a mate.
I want a girl who's dated enough to know what she wants, and appreciates it once in hand. Preferably, a girl with a bit of an edge, and maybe a bit of a past, or an interesting, slightly freaky side. She should get along with and speak well of most everyone she's ever dated.
I want a girl for whom health and fitness have always been a lifestyle, not just a halfhearted attempt, after she's let herself go for years. I've always been super-healthy though was laid up for a while with an injury. I'm all better now though, and starting to put back the muscle I lost when I couldn't be active, so a 'gym-rat' girl would be just fine.
The girl I seek believes in karma, kindness, and the golden rule, and tries to be protective of all living things. She tries to make sure nobody feels excluded.
She's curious about the world around her, loves to know how things work, why things are as they are, and appreciates quality conversation, and good questions, as much as she appreciates someone who can answer them.
She values every second with those she loves - knows life is short, and never takes anything for granted. She doesn't keep score, and always tries to do more than her share because she's confident her partner will always do the same, and appreciate everything she does.
She's known to say things like, "race ya to the top!" "let's take tomorrow off, and spoil each other," or, "check out the ass on that!!" (And, no, that doesn't mean I'm looking for swingers, threesomes, or whatever. Been there, done that. Got my money's worth out of my twenties - no regrets...)
In short, she's allergic to pettiness, jealousy, cruelty, ignorance, and apathy; she values kindness, intimacy of every kind, intelligence, humor, fitness, integrity, and change - - exploring new things, appreciating beauty in all its forms, trying to make each day a new thing, and make it count.
PS. I didn't give pof my actual birthdate. Not that crazy about the whole identity theft thing. You'll just have to guess my age, or ask in person, just like in real life. The pix were taken when they say they were, and not photoshopped...
PLEASE, practice the simple courtesy of having at least a minimum of one clear, dated portrait that show's what your face looks like, including any teeth you may have, and at least one full-length shot that gives an accurate idea of what sort of body type you have. We've all seen too many people abuse the verbal descriptions "athletic," "average," and, "a few extra pounds," - - just put up a recent, honest photo that actually answers the question. Your odds of finding someone - who likes you for you - will be hugely improved. NOBODY goes on a dating website to look at pictures of sunsets, kids, or pets.
Meeting a stranger, who has caught your interest online, isn't really "a date." A date is what you have after you decide that you don't want that person to remain a stranger.
A good first date includes a bit of mystery, some suspense, pleasant surprise, a lot of laughter, and feeling like you've made a meaningful connection. I'm looking forward to us finding each other and, going out on that joyous, mesmerizing adventure that lasts all the rest of our lives!
Summer is here! Quit screwing around and show yourself!!! Let's set it off, baby!!!
