If you're a normal person looking for long term partner who can write a coherent sentence, this might be for you. I recently moved here from Massachusetts. I'll be starting a new job soon, and getting my own apartment after that, and I have a car and I can drive it and everything. (They do it on TV, how hard can it be?) I'm starting here from scratch, and wanting to meet someone special. My profile joins thousands of others here, and it's difficult to get a feel for someone in their writing. I know all too well how hard it is to figure out chemistry, so if you're into meeting quick, it makes things easier after the Net narrows the search for us.
About me: I am not the Elite kind of guy you might often find on these sites, with double masters degrees, climbs mountains, bikes 800 miles a day, travels to every country in existence plus 2 others, and volunteers at orphanages playing the Spanish guitar. Instead, I do normal things like go to work, hike, read books and watch movies, petting nice animals, watching the sunset and figuring out what to have for supper. I collect pistols and target shoot. All of this, I would prefer to do with someone I love, and I'm open to much more. We don't need to have common interests; we just need to try each other's interests together, and find new ones. I am introverted, and stand back to watch other people scramble and create drama. I am fascinated by trees, and lightning storms, and starry nights. I love the look and feel of autumn, remember the childhood spookiness of Halloween. (Fair warning, very susceptible to nostalgia.) I'm reliable and loyal, have a love of sarcasm. I see most things in life as either black or white, and only sometimes with a touch of gray. With things I care about, I put great focus and energy into it. Most importantly to many, I'm not an ***hole. I'm not going to betray my partner, let her down on purpose, or lie to her. I communicate, I'm thoughtful, I say when something's wrong and we talk it through. She would side with me, and I with her, against the world when it comes down to the wire. Sometimes it will, and I need that to be reflected in her.
The woman I'm looking for: Probably introverted, capable and independent, enjoys bantering and teasing each other, and mature enough to be above drama and pettiness. Who believes in and practices great communication, feels that setting aside time each day for intimacy is essential, and believes that we should strive to do more for our partner then we do for ourselves. Women who I've known like this don't seem to like other women very much. If that's you, it might be a good indicator. Wicked short hair and/or unnatural colored hair is also a huge attraction.
Please consider whether this fits you and your ideals, be in decent shape, no kids, hard drugs, or smokers. The right girl is somewhere in this cityscape, so lets find out if we click.
I really would rather have a first date as quickly as comfortably possible after making written contact. I don't answer/write to people who have short or nonexistent profiles, so if we're talking then I already have a high interest.
What I tend to do is this: A long walk somewhere for icebreaking. The ocean, an easy hiking trail, off a short pier. This should be enough time to see if the person is right. After that, we can do anything, typically dinner if we're still interested, as long as everything I ask you isn't "I don't know." (That was long date, for sure)
