(My username- "foreveralone" is from an Internet meme. It was intended to be humorous, not as emo as it sounds, haha.)
“When you first meet someone… you don’t actually see them. You see a flimsy construction of their personality, created by your interpretation of the signals available. The way they make eye contact. How they interact with the bartender/waiter/homeless man asking you for change. The facts they choose to divulge about themselves. Because you have no other point of reference, every little detail resonates with added significance. Your mind, faced with a scarcity of information, is forced to create a projection of them. It is fiction." -Anonymous
I saw the above quote in an article about dating and thought people on here would relate. In other news, here's some stuff about me. I graduated college with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. Invigorated to discover what opportunities lie ahead, I figured the only thing that could make this time in my life even better is if I had someone to enjoy it with. I’m going to attempt to veer away from the cliche nonsense.. but the truth is I really do love traveling and a good sense of humor. I do my best to view life through an optimistic lens, but with a touch of sarcasm to keep in touch with reality. I remind myself each day, that life is short .. It helps me spend more time being spontaneous and less time worrying about the little things.
I just want to find someone respectful, that I can laugh with and be attracted to (and visa versa). A common theme I’ve seen among guys on this site is a desire for a woman that “knows what she wants”. I haven't finished yet, but here are two things I would like to have in a future partner.
-I would NOT consider myself a “grammar nazi”, but an attempt at proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation can be a real turn-on. It shows you’re actually making an effort, which is always nice.
-My education is one of the most valuable things I cherish in my life. It changed my world-view and made me a better person. I would really like for my potential partner to not only have a college education, but enjoy and value the learning process.
-Life can be real shitty at times, so a partner with a sense of humor is essential to get through the hard times. It’s not hard to find someone that likes to laugh, the difficult part is finding someone that finds humor in the same things you do, otherwise we'll probably just get on each others nerves. ;) Examples of people, shows, etc., I find funny include: “Seinfeld”, "Modern Family", “An Idiot Abroad”, Conan, Stephen Colbert, “I Love You, Man”, “Dumb and Dumber”, “The Big Bang Theory” and anything with Bill Murray. If you find a few or more of these things humorous, we’ll probably get along.
Whelp, on another note, things that nearly never fail to make me happy include: coffee, Frank Sinatra, chocolate, Seinfeld, snow, books, and virtually any sort of animal (especially dogs). Also, quotes are another one of my odd passions. Here’s one of my favorites that seems applicable to the occasion:
“And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” –Steve Jobs
If you would like to know more, send me a message… if not, good luck to you! (:
