About "Starts With S"...
*** If you want to get a hold of me, please send a message. The Chat feature does not work for me***
I'm not extraordinary, nor anybody's dream...I am an ordinary, average human being. I love to enjoy life, family, good friends, and good times. The main focus in my life right now are my 2 girls, I share custody, so they are (and will always be) around me. That’s a non-negotiable “way-it-is”, so if you are allergic to kids and this is an issue, don't waste both our times...move on, please! However, I work hard and play harder, so when it's "my" time, I like to make it fun time!
I have a large social circle, people I have known from childhood to now. So why am I on here? I guess I'm just curious...I love to meet new people. Ideally, I look for somebody that is an honest, FUN person; I do not mesh well with stick-in-the-mud types. That being said, I can't stand people that are overly-pretentious and snobby either; I hate Kardashian types! I like someone who is responsible, open-minded, intelligent, easy-going and level-headed…and of course, has a great sense of humor. If you don’t like to laugh, or if you have a need to be in professional mode 24/7, hang out with the nearest wall because you will hate my guts. All creeds and colors have a chance in my book as long as you fit the criteria.
I consider myself as intelligent, hard-working, honest, laid-back, and dependable. I work hard, play harder, and laugh at life with a jaded wink. I'm not looking for marriage (LOL), only looking for friends right now. I like walking instead of leaping. I emphasize this because of some crazy experiences. If you are the type that runs right into something serious as soon as someone holds your hand...stop reading right now. That ain't happening here. I'm not out and about constantly, but if your TV is your version of a night out, you definitely won't like me. As much of a social creature as I am, I really love my alone time! There is no such thing as a perfect match...perfection is in fairy tales. But there has to be some kind of chemistry (oh no, I used the "C" word!) in order for anything to progress...or am I old-fashioned (or delusional)?
Oh yeah...I'm kinda sarcastic too. Especially when it comes to this site. It's hard to actually show that in a bunch of typed gobbledygook, but I'm attempting it anyway:
***PLEASE! If you are old enough to be my mother, don't contact me. Not only will you never have a chance, that is just bizarre.
***If you don't have a photo on your profile, I assume you look like Medusa until you prove me wrong! I don't respond to Mystery Ladies.
***Why do people go on a dating site and not show a pic of themselves? I don't understand that kind of logic. That's like buying a car without test-driving it. It's not just personality and smarts that makes one attractive...Einstein had all that too, but I wouldn't want him to kiss me.
***Speaking of pics, what is up with the people that put pictures of their kids as their profile pic? Maybe it's me, but it's WEIRD. Stop it! Put yourself on here!
***The same thing goes with old high school pics posted when you are over 35...like I can't tell the difference. I don't care what you used to look like! The only good thing about living in the past is that the rent is cheaper.
***Why do women take Obligatory Bathroom Pics (OBPs) and make Duck Faces? It looks really stupid. Smile, don't Snooki.
***WHY do some people on here b!tch about all the rude comments they get, men suck, yadda yadda, but post pics of themselves in nighties and bikinis while laying on their beds in various (and mostly hilarious) provacative poses? The irony is so funny to me.
***There's a ton of people on here with no flaws that are always happy, smiling, enjoying life to its fullest, constantly staying busy being happily employed with amazing kickass jobs, volunteering all their spare time, and have a complete, extremely fulfilling, well-rounded life full of culture and adventure. I guess being cranky and tired after working all day and relaxing for the night after helping my kids with their homework means that the only well-rounded thing about me is my ass. I call bullsh!t!
***For the life of me, I don't get the profiles that expound their vast list of accomplishments, yet say nothing about the type of person they are looking for. If you want to portray yourself as perfect, post that crap on Facebook. To those who put their Facebook info on their profile...having total strangers friend request you doesn't make you look desperate. Not at all. WTF is wrong with you?
***If you are "separated" and are trolling around here for someone, that means you have a "separate" life that you are unsure of, something that I will not deal with. Been there. I would rather sit on a cactus naked.
***If you are married and want a "friend" to cater to your unfulfilled needs, stop reading and find someone else to wreck your marriage because of your intensely selfish behavior. I don't want to be around (or be blamed) for the fallout. Stick to your vows, not change them to fit your mood for the day. If you need it that bad, buy a pneumatic drill.
***I live in NW Indiana, so I don't mountain climb, skydive, or go river rafting on the weekends. I don't fly out to Cancun every other weekend either. There's no way most of you travel and volunteer your time as much as you say in your profiles...c'mon now!
***And as long as we are there...a walk on the beach for the first date...really? Who does that? Characters in a movie, that's who! Stop watching so many movies! Be yourself! Besides, there's no beaches around here!
***If you are the type that believes in "love at first sight", without knowing anything about somebody when you first see them, and think you will live happily ever after, good luck to you. That's Fantasy Island, not real life...I never liked that show, either! I really hope a lot of people on here are not as cliché as they seem to be on their profiles. If you are...I'm so sorry.
***A question to whom it applies to...why the checklist of 100 traits for the "perfect soulmate"? That tells me Jesus wouldn't be good enough for you because he was "only" a carpenter, and that teen magazines are your choice reading material. You'll never find him because he doesn't exist! Two words for you: Cat. Lady.
***If reading all of this actually makes you angry, you just don't get the humor. Please don't send me a three-paragraph analysis on why I'm such a mean, bitter person, or that I need to be saved in order to make yourself feel better...instead, ask yourself why you have such a burning desire to message a complete stranger and lambaste a profile that you don't like, because that is batsh!t insane.
