Please read my entire profile before messaging me. I mean, you are here anyway, may as well.
Talking about yourself is always so...weird. Seriously.."Look at me, wheee" OK, anyway, here we go.
I can make you laugh without trying. Which is a good thing since many of you say that you love to laugh. Which I find interesting. I have yet to meet a girl who says they hate to laugh. That conversation would be interesting.
Me "Hey, here's some random comment based on an unforeseen event that is happening and it creates at high probability of making you laugh."
TGWHL (The Girl Who Hates Laughing) "Hahahahahhaha!!!! Damn you man! I told you I hate laughing!"
Me "Equally humorous response based on her reaction."
TGWHL "Hahahahahahha!! WTH Dude!! What did I just tell you??!!! This date is OVER!"
So yes, I'm glad that you love laughing...more people should say "I really enjoy air...My day is not complete unless I gets me some air!" I am totally going to do that!
I'm physically older than I look or feel. My inner child is still hanging out and it would be great if yours is as well. It's a good thing and a bad thing. I do have my son part time and a daughter who lives with my ex that I see as often as possible. I am laid back when it comes to everyday life but can become extremely talkative when a good subject comes up. However I balance that by being a good listener. Yes, actually listening..not pre-planning my next statement before truly taking in what you have to say.
I don't do well with fake people...at all. I am who I say I am and don't need a facade to hide behind. I am the same guy on the first date that I am after we have been together for 5 years.
OK so what I am looking for...someone who still gets giddy when they get excited about going someplace awesome or about to do something new. Someone who still likes to lay on the grass on a warm day and make shapes of the clouds. Someone who still has hope of a wonderful future with someone who loves them for who they are, not someone that needs to change their personality to accommodate for someone else. Someone who is still a dreamer. A partner in crime. Someone spontaneous who doesn't need every second of the day planned out and knows that unforeseen things thats part of what makes life awesome. I am a face person. The focal point of what I find attractive is primarily above the neck. I have dated women of all shapes and sizes. I mean I like being active and taking care of myself and love being with similar traits. But I am far more concerned in how we feel when we look in each others eyes than the inches in your waistline. When a connection exists, it exists. The last girl I had a longterm relationship with gained 15 pounds in the time we were together. I honestly never noticed, at all.
One last thing is that I just started in my PhD program at the end of last year. So my free time has been sliced down quite a bit. But I can always make time for a good person. :)
The first date should be something light and variable. I think a true spark can only be identified in person. That moment where we have that nervous first contact where it's awkward or completely natural. If that happens then the first date will be incredible. If there is no spark then who knows, we could end up being great friends.
