First, I'm not expecting to meet the Love of my Life, My Sout Mate in a bar, or online... but here's my "elevator speech".
Sexy lady seeks man to enjoy dancing, sight seeing, beach and experiencing life. I am comfortable in my life, therefore would like to find someone grounded, somewhat ambitious, definitely a sense of humor, and comfortable in their life. If the chemistry were to ignite, it would be because the moment became better being together.
My highlights include: fun loving, tall redhead looking, displaced Michigander, who enjoys holidays, cooking, family, friends, vacations near water, mountains, historic sites etc. In return, you can count on me for consistency, loyalty and a reliable partner. And beyond should the feelings be mutual.
I believe in a higher spirituality, my Mother was Irish Catholic (yes - it's its own sect); my dad was an Acadian descendant; I was married 25 years and converted to Judiasm. Currently I'm a free-agent, but leaning towards Episcopalian or Unitarian.
As for sports, I’m a fan of the fanatics (ie, I'd enjoy watching games at pubs, at home, or just being downtown during a Lightning game. I like all the surrounding Hoopla! ). I believe in civic unity and would like organized groups (Krewes, Rotary, etc.) I'm sure we could come up with some sort of spirited wagering. :)
DEALBREAKERS: Cigarette smoking, outdated profile or no picture, or you don't know where a gym is, you're a serial dater, you're young enough to be my son, Long distance relationships, someone who's legally separated or looking for a fling. We're just not going to be a match.
Everything else I'll tell you in person.
First is the Meet & Greet: something laid back, friendly & light, non-committal, to see if the chemistry and curiosity is there.
Bonus points if you know who Jophiel is.
Also, don't be offended if I don't respond we are probably not a match. I feel it's impolite to write someone to say non-positive remarks. No news is good news.
AND .. . It goes both wasy. If I'm not your type, That's OK. Do not feel obligated to tell me you are looking for someone taller, younger, shorter, thinner, fatter, younger, richer, and so on. Again, No news is good news.
Lastly, for all you seekers out there, just remember, "It's not that people are rejecting you, it's G-d protecting you."
