Are you my dream guy? Are you kind of nerdy, wear glasses, and have a good head on your shoulders. You'll spell out "YOU ARE" rather than just typing UR. You'll use 50-cent words, correctly, in context, rather than using the boring generic synonym. You know which homophone to use. You're a smart aleck, and just a bit naughty. You prefer subtle humor to slapstick or potty humor. And most importantly, you live near me. I would rather be alone forever, than ever get involved in a long distance relationship.
While talking to a friend a few weeks ago, I realized what I WANT.... I want someone who's not afraid to be seen in public with me. I want long walks in the park holding hands. I want my hair played with. I want to cuddle on the couch watching a movie. I want to go dancing. I want somewhere to go, and someone to go with. I miss being in love. And I know you can't CHOOSE or DECIDE to fall in love, or who to fall in love with, but you can let yourself be open to it, or you can keep yourself closed off. I'm tired of being alone, and I'm tired of being closed off. But I am NOT looking for JUST a playdate. If you are looking for a tumble, look elsewhere. I'm not saying that *IF* we like each other, stuff won't happen, but I don't want that to be the primary focus. I don't want to be someone's "side dish." If you are playing the field, that's fine. If we aren't exclusive, just let me know in advance. If you have to keep me a secret from someone, there's a problem.
We all have baggage. Nobody gets to be mid-30's-40's without SOME kind of baggage. The trick is finding someone who is willing to help you unpack. Or carry it. Or put it up on a closet shelf for you. Our past makes us who we are today. If you've never had your heart broken, how do you find the one to heal it? If you've never had to work at something, you won't appreciate something special. I want someone to think I'm special.
We should email each other, and if we hit it off online, then we should meet. Neutral Ground, casual atmosphere.... Meet for coffee? Walk in the park? Easy to go our separate ways if we DON'T end up connecting. If we do, great. And maybe we'll connect as friends, just no sparks. That's fine too. I can always use more friends!
Now, for the important stuff: I love to dance, swim, read, and play on the computer. I'm not very outdoorsy, but I love the sunshine. My second favorite place to be, after a lounge chair by the pool, is in the kitchen, creating masterpieces. Lasagna? Rum Cake? Cookies? What's your favorite?
I have a bizarre sense of humor, and if you can't make me laugh, it's not going to work. When browsing profiles and sending messages, I'm more likely to respond to someone who makes me laugh. Don't get me wrong, I can be serious, but I'd rather be silly.
