The quick red fox jumped over the lazy brown dog. There, at least I'm started typing something. Just getting started can provide inspiration. But really, if I had to ask myself, am I the quick fox or the lazy dog, I would have to say I am that Chocolate Lab. Oh, yeah, I'll get excited about lots of stuff: go for a long walk, bark at the bad guys, and enjoy a good piece of steak. But, I could be perfectly happy lounging about being petted and feeling adoration. A fox would be elusive and solitary, not much into hanging about with others but looking to be chased, and frankly, I just don't appreciate that personality. Not that I am a dog (except for the "you are such a dog") in the looks department. A dog lover would have to admit that Labs are good looking animals.
To clarify the reference to dog behavior, I do like long walks, especially as part of a trip camping. I do bark at the bad guys: politics is important to me. (Die hard Bush fans need not apply.) Along with that steak I might have a Bass or instead a bass and a Sam Adams. One thing I like that a Lab cannot do is play games. Not in the "thinks she's a foxy girl" sense, but in the board games sense. If you have ever heard of Catan, you get extra points. But like the Lab, I want a partner on the walks, the political discussion and the grilling in the back yard session, followed by lots of petting and licking and gazing with adoration into each other's eyes.
One point I would like to make. I actually quite surprised that the site doesn't cover it in the basic profile. I am an attorney. That means I have a graduate degree. After a few too many disappointments, I now insist upon any guy I date having at least an undergraduate degree. Graduate degree is better. And if you have a Ph.D. better yet - hey I am culturalized enough to want to look up to my man.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I don't really count the first "look you over" meeting at Starbucks as the "first date" but that's important. There must be basic chemistry to want spend the time on several hours together. I would not totally rule out the first meeting lasting all day, but that would not be the plan. At the first meet we could get to know each other enough to know likes and dislikes for the first real date. And here I make things difficult: I love it when the guy plans the date. It shows he has paid attention, has imagination and is a touchstone of old fashioned chivalry. So I'm not going to say what I want to do on that date: it would be cheating.
