Not everyone likes pets! Or gay men! I don't hate them, I just don't love them.
I'm looking for a true gentleman, but not the perfect man...
A man may be able to put across a great image, but it could simply be a cover for hidden shortcomings, or he could just be totally faking it to ‘get the girl.’
I'm paraphrasing below what a True Gentleman is:
A true gentleman values more than just good looks.
A true gentleman will not be intimidated by inner strength and ambitions.
A true gentleman will have more interests than just me.
A true gentleman will give me answers. - No matter how awkward or uncomfortable a situation is, a real man will approach it, and me, with respect. I have always felt that a mark of a man is how he handles conflict, criticism, and less-than-ideal situations.
A true gentleman is direct. In addition to the last point – a gentleman can be direct, pithy, and honest…and try to do it with kindness, humor, aplomb, or style (think James Bond! ;)
A true gentleman can trust me. I don’t betray my man’s trust, so I expect my man to not be paranoid, or snoop around invading my privacy.
A true gentleman is cool, calm, and collected.
A true gentleman will show me respect.
A true gentleman will put effort into our relationship.
A true gentleman will make me want to be the best ME I can be.
It goes without saying the kind of woman I am by the man I seek. I am every bit a lady. I'm not casual about sex and relationship. I strive to be virtuous and live my life with dignity.
I don't do day-long text ping-pong. Let's chat on the phone briefly. First date can be planned out then if we like each other on phone...
If you want to talk further, please send phone number with the message. I will text you and we can briefly talk on the phone. I only need to learn on the phone enough about you to decide YES or NO to dinner or HH should you choose to ask me out, and that need not be that long. Sometimes, I know immediately the answer would be NO after the first couple of words and will excuse myself off the phone. Please don't take offense. I'm a woman who knows what she wants.
