The problem with sites like this is that everything is based only on pictures, and what we write; a use of squiggly characters invented many centuries before any of us were born. Many happy relationships will never be because of this. One’s actions play no part here and I think that is the only real thing that should be used when judging someone. I’m no author, and I hated English class, so this is my attempt to pass through people's prejudices by just my writing.
For all you women wondering if chivalry exists, I can tell you that it is only alive to those who deserve it, not those who merely think they do. For those who are demanding chivalry, recognize it when it happens, don't just expect it to be unnoticed. A relationship is a mutual agreement, so to expect to start off one-sided will just destroy a relationship before it begins. I was raised with these guidelines and they are just as true now as in a time before the Internet.
As for me, I'm young, athletic, drug free (and rarely drink), financially stable, and motivated where it is necessary. I'm past the bar and club scene, and have been for a while. In addition I am a huge fan of music to the point where it can take over my thoughts and imagination, and am always willing to try a new instrument. Sports are fun for me, but my football fandom is of another type of football. I have played on a team recently and it has inspired me to only be better. A new adventure to me can mean anything from seeing a new TV show or trying a new type of food, to exploring a random patch of woods and places abandoned long ago.
I'm looking for someone who is willing to be as considerate as I can be, as special to me as I hope to be to them, and as awe-inspiring as I am inspired. Those definitions do not fall simply on looks, they mean much more than that.
First impressions on the Internet are only as real as the digital existence of the Internet itself and one should consider that when judging a person on here. A little conversation never hurt anyone, even if that is all that ultimately comes from a connection here. I have "dating" in the "here for" category, but that is only because they make me choose a category. In all honesty I feel few people follow the category they chose to the T, like many things, ideas may change and I'm no different.
Finally, don't use the "man must make the first move" mindset. That fact is, I don't really look to see who has or has not viewed me, and if you are interested, shoot me an email. This is the Internet, I'll make the first move of holding the door for you when I actually meet you in the real world.
Remember, for those who have impossibly high standards and are not willing to look further than a computer profile, or you want a sugar-daddy ATM, you are the one who chose to be on a free site.
A chance can only be "taken" when it is actually given. - Probably ripped that off someone, but it just came to me.
