I'm feeling pretty jaded with this website and here are my reasons:
-most of the men that contact me are not people I find very physically attractive or they are completely out of my age range and when they message me it's kind of creepy.
-the ones that I do find attractive and in my age range tend to be shallow and are only looking for "intimate encounters" or have something about "getting wasted", constantly watching sports or working out in their in their profiles.
-the only common thread amoungst all of the men I've found on here is that they all think the best first date is dinner and a movie... listen it's not the ****ing 1980s anymore, I was born in 1987 I prefer not to date like people did the year I was born.
I'm really close to deleting this because no one on here seems to be realistic or normal as in, not perfect (or trying to make themselves seem perfect) and to be honest I hate being just another fish in this vast sea (no pun intended) of extremely desperate people flushed with cabin fever, thanks to the Cleveland winter. Everyone on these damn things seems to be either old and creepy or young and just trying to sell themselves to women as a perfect body for a one night stand. Listen, if you are 25 and still looking for an intimate encounter and talking about getting wasted all the time in your profile, maybe it's time you grow some balls and stop sitting around drinking beer in your boxers and waiting till some girl messages you asking for a date. To be even more frank if you are still searching for your first one night stand at the age of 25ish then I don't think we are on the same speed anyways... college should have maybe taken care of that for you and hunting down a girl to just **** one night via an online dating website... well that's pathetic, we are young, we should be out meeting people the classic way.
I think I've had enough of this shit, if you dare care to prove me wrong, drop me a line however I might forget this site exists, so it may take me a few days to respond seeing as I have a life outside of the internet.
My profile starts here:
My friends would describe me as bold, compassionate, outgoing, understanding, silly, and reliable. I am very open about things which has it's ups and downs. I ask lots of questions because I love to learn. I like being involved but, I also understand the meaning of space. I need my own space every now and then. I talk alot but, if you know how to catch my attention I will listen all night.
I'm probably one of the few clevelanders left that enjoys the winter. I like being cold so I have a reason to find a warm body, blanket, or cup of coffee, cocoa, or tea to warm up with.
I would like to meet anyone who is compassionate, interesting, adventurous, spontaneous, and funny. I want to find someone who makes me feel alive as much as being with my best friends does.
*NOTE* I prefer people who know how to read and write. You will have a better interaction with me if you do not stalk my profile several times a day and leave persistent messages. I like people who can entertain themselves with things other than just playing video games, sitting on this website all day, watching sporting events from their couch or working on their truck.
I don't require anything from anyone in particular (as in I don't exclude people because they have children or are divorced etc.), but that does not mean that I'm not picky. I think everyone should excercise their right to be choose-y and yes, I realize that goes both ways.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think a good first date would involve both people learning about the other, it shouldn't be too one sided. Wherever we go should be somewhere where communication can easily take place. You can always take me out for a milkshake, coffee, a root beer / cream soda float, or a nice glass of wine ;-)
If we take the movie route, it better be something good, like The Big Lebowski good, too bad they don't seem to make movies like that anymore.
