Happy 2015 to all :)
I have tried slim concise profiles and very in depth detailed ones, neither of which seem to be very successful for me in finding a suitable match.
Online dating is essentially window shopping.
I have always enjoyed window shopping but have never been one to go in and make a purchase, well, not unless i am really wow'd by something and feel that buying it is justified. This is much the same. My life is complete and I am looking to add to that happiness. I want a great fit for me, just like my favourite pair of old go-to jeans that are comfy and look great. I will not settle for anything else. If the jeans don't fit and make me feel awesome > well, "i ain't buy'n them!" - i will keep looking....
I am confident that we can have a great easygoing date. The key is to just be yourself, 100%, and if the chemistry exists, it will be evident. If not, we enjoy a short meeting and be honest and move on. I will not lead anyone on and do not want to waste anyone's time, especially MY OWN. If the ZING factor isn't there - time to move on.
I am NOT interested in anything casual. I want to meet somebody who, if we click, will invest the time needed in really getting to know each other, building on that, and hopefully blossom into more. I am not wired for short-term. I want a best friend and long-term partner, ideally not ever having to return here!
My "wish list", whether it be realistic or not, here it is as a starting point :
NON SNORER/ peaceful sleeper *this one is a deal-breaker for me, unless you are up for separate sleeping quarters* :0
6 feet tall +
approx 200 lbs (i am NOT a small girl)
Hair on head, but not tons on body
Love sparkly eyes - in preference order - blue :), grey, green, hazel
Please SMILE - if you don't in any of your pics, i am definitely going to question WHY
Can have fun without alcohol
Have a solid grasp of the english language (primary language please) >>> you enjoy DINNING? that better be loud sounds and NOT food that you are talk'n about, basic grammar - it's the difference between knowing your sh*t & knowing you're shit!
Live within a 30 minute radius of me easily accessible by Toronto public transit/GO train -
Fit BUT somebody who will indulge in my home baked desserts and not count the calories, (also - if you are concerned about peanuts or dairy or gluten, we may not be a match)
Can laugh at themselves, is easygoing, laid back, crazy sarcastic and would prefer a pub over a classy restaurant, a hoodie and jeans over a suit and tie - i honestly would have no clue how to distinguish a Rolex from a Dollar Store watch - why? because i could care less.......material things don't impress me in the least
Loves to be outdoors, appreciates nature and animals and the warmth of the sun :), i speak squirrel fluently :)
Someone who is open and willing to date a woman with children but does not want any (more) of their own as i am done with making babies :)
>>> clearly, you would have to be open to the idea of being around children if we were to click, if you aren't (and they are not for everyone!), please save you and ME time and don't connect, thank you
* other plusses include > having a full-time job and having/owning your OWN place (or at least having a goal to achieve that in the near future would be preferred) * as i have both - i get the whole, money-strapped, gett'n back on your feet thing, but after a year or two - commmmmmme on - move out of the relative's/friend's place *
**** and lastly, if you have EVER been unfaithful to a partner, then please don't message me, my tolerance for that is ZERO regardless of the excuses please****
I enjoy a spontaneous meeting over a very planned out one :) Something short and sweet and preferably outdoors, to be continued if we both choose to....
No pressure, no expectations - because we all know finding that elusive chemistry is crazy challenging.
I prefer real and genuine over someone trying too hard - being overly complimentary too soon is NOT genuine and will not be well received.
Chemistry cannot be forced - just be YOU.
