I can assure you I'm not as abrasive as my profile may seem. I'm laid back and mellow by nature. Just being clear about expectations to avoid wasting time.
With that said, if your profile says anything about wanting a real man, you'd better make sure you're a real woman first. And by real woman, I don't mean an obnoxious alcoholic that swears like a sailor or considers slutty behavior a form of female liberation or a natural expression of her sexuality.
I'm more traditional in my values and am looking for someone similar. Men are best suited as providers/protectors and women as nurturers/care-takers. Like most guys, I'm looking for a woman with feminine appeal, who's secure in embracing her feminine nature and "gets" the male/female dynamic w/no interest in upsetting that balance. Not someone who gets her sense of self-worth trying to prove she's "equal" to men. If you're a hardcore feminist, it will never work. There's nothing wrong with a strong, independent woman. But making it your life's mission to outdo men is an empty pursuit which has sadly led to an epidemic of masculine women and effeminate men, i.e. an upside down society. True strength and independence are conveyed silently. Unfortunately, the opposite is in abundant supply - loud mouths, tough exteriors, but weak and fragile interiors.
Also not a huge fan of gals who post overtly provocative pictures of themselves; excessive cleavage, lots of skin, etc. Not a deal breaker but it definitely doesn't help your cause. A little mystery goes a long way. I'm looking for a woman with dignity and class and who desires the same in a partner.
Lastly, if you're a social media addict or smart phone zombie that can't make it through a meal without checking your phone, keep it moving. And while I respect everyone's right to believe as they wish, I could never be with an athiest. I just think our world views would be too different.
So, if you're a real woman who's looking for a real man, let's talk. Otherwise, good luck finding the emasculated mangina the femi-nazi movement brainwashed you into thinking you want. Believe me, there are plenty out there that would be thrilled to join you at the day spa.
Happy fishing ;)
