Just an FYI for you guys: On a site like this, if you don't upload a photo girls will automatically assume you're not worth looking at. We don't want to see pictures of you with other women, also you're not here to get a date for your dog(s), so spare us photos of your four-legged friends. If you find a girl worth bringing home to the dog, we'll see them then. Lastly, lay off the pictures with 4+ people in them. How are we to pick out which one is you unless you add pics that feature just you?
I'm complicated. If that scares you, then I'm sorry, but it's the truth. I'm a Leo, and at this point in my life, I know what I want out of a relationship and what I expect of the one I give my heart to. I've dealt with alot in my life that forced me to grow up way too quickly. Because of that, however, it has turned me into abit of a hopeless romantic, and ever the dreamer. Without knowing me, people think I'm so mature and well-mannered, but those who get close to me see the side of me that still watches (and loves) Disney movies, and this Belle is now trying to find her Beast.
As a Leo, I can be a little stubborn, and adjusting to change takes time with me. I flourish on routine and get comfortable with regularity. That is not to say, that I don't enjoy spontaneity and surprises, but I like making plans and seeing them through. It's little things that really mean alot to me and I appreciate someone who not only shares that point of view, but follows through on it as well. Love letters/notes, chocolate, flowers, random sweet little texts throughout the day... These types of things mean so much to me, and not just the fact that it's a gift, but the fact that I was thought of enough to receive something like that. I enjoy rock and roll, metal, most versions of that genre. I don't care for rap, country, or hip-hop. I also like 80's music of all sorts. My favorite food is pizza, followed by buffalo chicken, favorite drink is tea, then chocolate milk (followed closely by cherry coke, lol).
I like to sing, draw, write, role-play (text-based), ect. I'm a computer nerd and I love online games and console games, as well as board games and group-related activities.
My ideal man: I'M ATTRACTED TO WHITE MEN! I'm not racist, but I'm not attracted to other ethnicities. Sorry! He should be tall. I'm 5'2", and I would love to be able to just rest my head on his chest, right over his heart, while he could rest his chin on top of my head. He should be toned, I'm not physically attracted to overweight, over-muscled, or lanky twigs of man. I weigh 120lbs., I expect him to be able to sweep me off my feet, pick up and/or carry me. I want to be able to look into his eyes and get lost, but also be able to see my future in them. I want a man who measures up. Sex isn't the end-all, but it -is- important, and I'm not going to lie and say it doesn't matter. It does.
I need someone who knows the value of a promise and KEEPS it. I'm in this for the long run, and when I finally do say words like 'I love you' and 'forever', I MEAN them. In the past guys have said everything I wanted to hear, promised to love me forever and told me how much they wanted a future with me and were ready to settle down and start a family....and then once I get used to that idea, they completely destroy me and rip my heart out and stomp on it. I'm tired of being hurt like this. I can't take it anymore. Just because some guys have the ability to turn their emotions on and off like a light-switch, doesn't mean I can. I just want someone who isn't going to give up, someone who wants to makes things work and is willing to make the effort to make us succeed as a couple.
I want someone who won't let me run away if I get upset. I tend to bottle up my sadness and my anger and frustration. Even if I run and lock myself in a closet, claiming I'm "too upset" to talk, I need a man who'll break down the door and make me let out what's on my mind, even if I'm a crying, emotional mess while doing it. Expressing myself is a shortcoming I'm willing to admit, mainly because my whole life, I have always (and continue to) endeavored to make the people around me, and the people I care about happy, to the point where (and sometimes I don't even realize it) I begin to overlook my own happiness. I need a man who can recognize when my smile starts to seem like it's wearing thin and fill it up again.
I want a man who I can bring home to my father and be proud to present. I don't -mind- tattoos, but I don't fancy them either. And I don't like facial piercings, they're a turn-off for me. I don't mind facial hair, but I prefer it trimmed short and neatly groomed. Body hair I have mixed feelings over. I think I prefer a man with abit of hair, it just boasts of 'manliness' to me. But if you have creatures living in there, or have to hack through it with a machete, then that's a little too much. I like a man who keeps himself clean. That's not to say I don't enjoy my guy's 'manstink' after a hard day or a good workout, but I find a good (not overpowering) cologne on a man intoxicating.
I'm looking for a knight in black shining armor. I want a rough and tumble guy who can wrestle with me and pin me down, but also be tender and gentle. I'm both a tomboy and a lady and I need a man who can indulge in both sides of me like that. I want a goofball, but a man with class. A classy goofball. I'm always a sucker for villains, and a good evil laugh gives me chills. I often feel I fill the role of a damsel in distress, and I want my villain to fall for me and turn into my hero.
I hope to find a man who I can dress up for Halloween with, or for conventions/cosplays. Also, I hope he would have a nice singing voice. It's not a necessity but certainly a plus. He would also have to have a marginal grip on the English language, enough to NOT butcher it. I know Internet/texting shorthand is tempting and easy and convenient, but it's one of my biggest pet peeves, and a surefire way to NOT get a response from me. The word is spelled 'y-o-u', there are in fact three letters, not one. If you can't be bothered to type two extra letters, it shows an unbecoming 'laziness' for lack of a better term. That being said, just because I'm a grammar nazi doesn't mean I fault a person for typos. I make them all the time, it happens. My point is, I enjoy someone who is well-spoken, and messages which are well-written and convey your thoughtfulness.
I also love a man in uniform. I'm a sucker for a Navy man. They just have some strange sway over me, lol. I wanted to be some lucky Sailor's lovely Siren. This isn't a 'requirement' but it certainly is a MAJOR plus.
This is where I fear I may lose you, as you'll probably think I'm just stuck up and shallow, but if I don't find myself physically attracted to you, it won't work out. If there's no 'spark', there's no flame in which to fan.
