POF is interesting. I get to learn different personality types. I love reading profiles; some are very intriguing, and some not so much. I've never done online dating - however, I would like to get to know people, I feel that it makes me a more well-rounded person. I personally wouldn't jump into a relationship right away, especially after hooking up from POF but whatever happens, happens right? Who knows, my future husband might be here....
Anyway, I like that simple, old-school type of love. Attracted to a gentleman, who opens the doors for the ladies, and who respect and prioritize family. Be intelligent, humble, giving, kind, career and goal oriented, independent, and most importantly must have self-respect. And as far as physical attributes; must have good hygiene, showers daily and maintains white/plaque-free teeth; to me, that's more important than being a man with all those muscles and what not... and yes, I'm totally turned off when a man displays to the world, his materialistic goods; your diamonds, cars and money, although it sounds very appealing - would never impress me because I've already got all that.
I prefer simple - just a simple 'ol Mr. John Doe without all that extra baggage. Not really expecting much from here except to make some friends.. maybe more?
I hope, that as you're reaching the end of my "info" section, I was able to successfully filter out the ones whom I'm not interested in, afterall, this is a dating website and I assume we're all here to eventually find something, or "someone"... and I do apologize in advance, but I like responding to actual conversations, not just the typical "hello" "what's up" "how's your day going" "what's your plans for the weekend".... be adventurous, be creative, first impressions are the most important!
With that said, Go Fish!
I don't want to get to know YOU on the first date, because by the first date, I probably would have spent countless days exchanging texts trying to get to know YOU.
I do however want to get to know how you are as a person -- how you interact with people, how your demeanor is, if you say please or thank you to others, if you open the door (not for me, but the lady behind us), if you pick up the trash after yourself, your genuine interest in life in general, how clean your car is, if your nails are clean, how you talk about people. ... all that will tell me about you, your habits, and how you were raised to be a gentleman. Haha, I'll be OBSERVING.
