Here in this space I am supposed to sell myself to you in such a manner that you think I am the greatest thing to come along since man invented sliced bread. Have you ever pondered if the person on the other end of the internet is truly the all-star they are selling themselves as? Internet dating and courting is such an entertaining and exciting phenomenon.
So here’s my sales pitch. Interest wise, I think we live in the greatest state in the Union, it provides for me the venues for all my outdoor interests. I love launching my kayak into the Sound and paddling out to enjoy the smells and sights of various sea life. I enjoy hiking and mountain biking in our beautiful mountains and valleys. There are few experiences better than standing on top of a cliff or mountain peak and taking in the breath taking views of the water falls, the forests, and listening to the wildlife around you.
I enjoy relaxing at my house periodically and lazing around in the sun when it peeks out from the clouds here in the Emerald State. Along with that relaxation I also ensure to get in a little exercise in. I love running in the morning mists and going to the gym to get a little swoll on. I am no GQ model by any means, but at least I can play with my kids in the yard for longer than 3 minutes without having to bend over the picnic table gasping for air. I enjoy watching movies every now and then at my house, but I don’t like to lounge around all day on the couch eating Bon Bon’s while watching Jerry Springer. I read all manner of literature from biographies and historical works to fiction and non-fiction. I attempt to eat healthy and really enjoy cooking in my kitchen. But alas, I do have to admit, I do have a weakness for pastries. Oh how I love a Boston Crème filled donut!!
For night life entertainment I really enjoy comedy clubs. I love comedy. There is humor in everything; you just have to find it. I also love to listen to live bands play at local pubs, and I will even get there and do a little karaoke. I have been even known to even get out on the dance floor and “back that ass up”. I don’t get embarrassed so who knows what’s going on a night out on the town and I happen to get a coca cola or two inside me!! Basically I just like to have fun and want to live life to the fullest. I don’t want to look back and say to myself, “I wish I would have……” I want to say, “I’m glad I did……”
I say that my intent is to date but nothing serious, but that's because I don't know you yet!! That will change to seeking a serious relationship if you win me over, I do have a photo to share with those whose interest is peaked......
Ohhh, the insanity of the first date…. Who is this random person? Are they really the millionaire, Italian model, Rock n’ Roll lead singer, body builder, war hero that they sold themselves as? Or am I going to catch a random glimpse of this person again tomorrow when I enter the local McDonald’s, cooking my french fries as the head cook working the deep fryer? Was that really their current picture with that gorgeous flowing hair; or is that a ten year old, 100 pound ago picture? Was that really their extremely nice upscale suburbia home that we went to last night or do they still live in their mother’s basement playing World of Warcraft all day on the internet? Oh the anticipation and fun of the first internet date!!!
I think a comedy show is a good first date, it’s a good ice breaker, especially if we go out for drinks afterwards. We should at least go on a date where we have the opportunity to talk while we are doing whatever it is we elect to do so that we can find out if we really are who we say we are.
