Im starting this with saying I'm not looking for a booty call!!!..... In addition, I'm a VERY busy person and trying to keep up with this site is about impossible... On average I have over 200 messages, I'm not saying that to sound conceited I'm just trying to be honest that I may lose your message in the stack of others or not see a message at all.... Sorry ahead of time for the delayed (sometimes weeks) response...
Also, if you can't handle rejection a dating site probably isn't the best place to try to meet people... Not meaning to be rude, just honest..
Before wasting your time reading about "me" how about I say what I'm attracted too first...
Honesty, integrity, Intelligence, common sense, humor,passion, hard workers, the "guys guy" type that can build stuff and fix things. Lol... Sorry I really don't know how else to try to explain that so I hope that makes sense..... If this sounds like you, we may have some things in common.
But if you still live with your parents, have no job, no direction or goals in life, are confused about what you want, afraid of commitment, liar, crazy, or a cheater please do not message me...
I recently graduated with a BA from CAL but, I'm working toward a long goal of obtaining a Phd. I'm not looking to rush into marriage or moving in however, I do want more than a once a week date and hope that a connection could lead to more.
I prefer monogamy but every situation is different and as long as there's communication and honesty, I think anything can be worked out. However, I dream of the 50's family life style...
I know what I want out of life and a partner and I'm refusing to settle for anything less...
I'm tired of bullsh*t and being taken advantage of and lies too. I don't need to hear "pretty words" and what you think I want to hear. I just want someone who can be completely honest with me, no matter what the subject may be and accept my same honesty in return..
I believe actions show more than words and I pay attention to EVERYTHING. I enjoy showing my appreciation to my significant other and when appreciation is received It makes me happier to do more. A simple "thank you" goes a long way.
. I don't expect much but I'd rather be alone, than with someone that does not see my worth. I am a "horrible" smoker but, I do want to quit.
I'm a brutally honest person and no matter how much I may want to, I won't lie to you or for you. That being said; I am also, an emotional person and I often have a bad habit of "over sharing" how I feel.
I'd say I'm not "broken" from my past but, I admit I'm still damaged and trying to heal and there's remaining insecurities, that get a little annoying, but I promise those moments are very simple to avoid and I'm not "crazy". LOL ;)
I'm not clingy however, I do expect to hear from the person I'm dating AT LEAST once a day. I don't care if it's just a text to say hello or even one that just says "busy, can't talk. Thinking of you" it at least shows me that I crossed your mind.
I'm a very understanding person, just never lie to me.
This is probably bad to share but, screw it; the "silent treatment" will literally drive me "stupid emotional girl crazy". No joke, I don't know what happens to the "rational" me but, she gets replaced by something that I even hate; "a stupid girl". So, basically, a way to avoid it from happening or stop it if it starts, is just to be honest. If your mad, tell me; if you want to tell me to "**** off" than just tell me, and if you meet someone else, just be honest; don't pick a fight just for a reason to walk away. And don't just ignore the situation. Be man enough to just say you're not interested..
I don't really "fight" and really, I don't get angry often. However, I do get disappointed and upset /hurt and I like to talk things out and be completely clear so, there's no room for miscommunication.
Realistically, we all have certain things we need from a partner but, no body is perfect. I believe when you care for someone you care for ALL of them, the good and the bad.So I guess I'm looking for someone who feels the same.... Ok that got a little "deep" sorry about that... Lol....
Anyway I also love to cook for others and have small get-together's. I'm a sucker for board games (although no one ever wants to play them). I love to dance but rarely go out. I did the club thing when I was younger now I'd rather have a cold beer in a hole in the wall dive bar.
I'm not materialistic at all; name brands and money, DOES NOT impress me. Also, seeing someone on here with all their photos, without a shirt; is a turn off. Confidence is a turn on but arrogance will make the most attractive person repulsive.
I do think attraction is important, I'm not shallow but I need that "spark" to be happy. I'm very serious about school so when my work is done; I like to watch mindless television and just relax. Although, I'm taking a break from school before applying to grad school. At the moment I work two full time jobs to save enough money to not have to work during grad school...
I like the out doors; as long as , its not hot. I'd rather spend a week in Alaska than in Hawaii.
I love camping, tent or cabin, doesn't matter to me. Truthfully where I live if you don't like to camp, you'd hate my place...
I want to do more fun stuff and share the experiences with someone. I finally have weekends off for the first time in my "working" life so I really have no idea what there is to do on the weekends. Lol.. My week days are filled with 15 hour days three times a week and two 7 hour days.. So getting a hold of me is almost impossible unless you see me at work. Lol
If there's anything you want to know just ask. However, if your on here to just get laid; keep looking, I'm not interested.
