Let's be real. If your message says "hi" or "hi there" or "hey" or "hey there" or any other stint of a salutation, which lacks imagination or originality... Don't bother. I prefer people who stand out. If you look at me and think I'm out of your league, I probably am. Don't bother wasting my time. I have very high standards for myself, and even higher for whom I choose to date.
I know which characteristics others admire in me. But I also recognize my faults. I'm a smartass. I love laughter more than anything in the world. I don't settle for mediocrity. And I understand I'm not everyone's dream girl. I shop too much. I curse more than my mother approves. I argue just to be playful. I will listen to someone vent and gossip, as that is often therapeutic and raw, and real...But never care to repeat it. I cry at the mere thought of how deeply I love my family. I cry thinking of other people's pain. I over analyze the actions of EVERYONE...Because I always want to know why people do what they do. It's a horrible fault. I wear high heels more often than any girl should. I make off-the-wall comments at inopportune times. I dance like I'm the ONLY person on the floor. My karaoke voice... It sets off car alarms and causes riots in the streets. I like wine. I love beer. And wings.
I question the lack of manners amongst the greater population---Please and thank you, it's a pleasure to meet you----And wonder what ever happened to a man offering his seat for a lady nearby. Witnessing a random act of kindness...Absolutely melts my heart. Sadly, it's rare.
Let's clear this up...I thought it was, "Let's play it by year." And, "It's a doggy dog world." In my defense, the first one TOTALLY made sense, on calendar terms.
Everyone contradicts their own thoughts and beliefs. Everyone makes mistakes. It's only about first impressions to a certain extent. You know what you like, you know what you don't. It's about giving someone a chance, when you deem them worthy. And not wasting their time when it doesn't seem fit. I'm about simplicity these days. And improving myself, first and foremost.
The end. Or the beginning.
