Yes, I mentioned the R word already, but it really does puzzle me - when did getting to know someone for longer than a night became such a bad thing? (Incidentally, not desperate crazy person here!)
Do guys have the impression that all women are stalkers, gold diggers or mentalists so your opening line is always 'I'm not looking for a relationship ...'?
Or am I simply a terrible judge of character & a sucker for a nice smile?
Here's the thing, the sane ones amongst us don't want to jump head first into a relationship either. But, no matter how I say what I do want, it seems to be open to interpretation.
Right, I'm aware this is becoming a rantathon! Sorry!
Ok, you'll have guessed this isn't a flowery 'I like long walks on the beach and want to be treated like a princess' profile. Not my style. (Though I do like long walks on the beach. In the winter mainly. With shoes on. Sand between my toes i can do without)
And I love a good snuggle. (So not a man hating feminist)
Me: ive done the long term relationship & im quite enjoying the single thing. Though its a bit boring at times.
Im - reluctantly - admitting to myself that im a grown up now, and an independant one.
Ive reached a point in life where im as comfortable in my own skin as ive ever been. I have regular 'blonde moments', i still blush, my sarcastic, dry & daft sense of humour can be slightly lost on others, im shy & outspoken at the same time, either worry a lot what others think of me or dont give a damn, when im nervous i either talk too much or dont know what to say, i tend to go off on tangents and I occasionally open my mouth without engaging my brain first. But it's all part of my charm. No, really! ;)
I'm generally up for trying most things at least once. Unless it involves heights...or karaoke...I can't stand karaoke. (So karaoke somewhere up high would be an awful first date...)
I'd like to find someone on my wavelength who ive got chemistry with to have fun & adventures with and who wants the same from me as i want from them.
Even meeting some new fun & interesting people would be good as ive always enjoyed being 'out with the boys'.
Im human, not perfect. I'm honest and straight talking. I dont play games, use others to massage my ego or use people to 'scratch that itch' - by text or in person - and have little time for those who do. (You may have figured this bit out from the introduction ;) )
Well there you go, a taster of me. If you think you might be on my wave length, or if curiosity gets the better of you, drop me a message :)
If I message you and it seems like nonsense that's because I'm awful at the first message thing, but theres been something about your profile I liked :)
Ill say here, I won't reply to everyone.
We all send messages that get no response. Ive tried replying to all to be polite but, it didn't work.
So apologies in advance if I don't.
I was young and it was awkward...
Something/somewhere we will both be at ease and can have a bit of chat would be good, see if there is a 'spark'...we'll save something more interesting for the second one!
