f you're wondering why I looked at your profile, frankly it's because I liked a brief glimpse and was curious to know more. Odds are excellent you're attractive, smart, and/or intriguing (in a "I wonder what she means by that" way). You also got +25 points for wearing glasses or punky hair. So whatever you're doing, keep it up, it's obviously working. (Unless I'm somehow the only person looking at your profile, in which case, you might want to ask me if I have any suggestions on what to try differently).
So me: I'm a GGG Savage Love reader in search of same. I'm also coming off a four year relationship, so a little bit drained when it comes to taking things too seriously. But with that in mind, I'm a librarian, a gamer, and a smartass. I've worked as a comedian, as a teacher, and as a labourer, and I generally want to get as much as I can out of this "How many times do we get to go around the sun" ride. I lived in Japan for a few years, spent waaay too much time, blood and treasure going to University, and haven't *quite* given up on fatherhood yet. I log better with people ten years younger than me than with I do with many of my peers, for whatever that's worth. Don't even get me started on Baby Boomers (as a generation, obviously, not any tech saavy boomer individuals on this site).
I don't think that there is "only one perfect person for anyone" out there, (because I've met at least three in my life) but I do know no one finds anyone they're compatable with by not getting out and meeting people, and potentially quite a lot of people. I'm also in a mood to widen my social circles and meet some new people I wouldn't otherwise, so I really don't think there's anything to lose by putting up a profile here. My expectations are pretty modest at this point, but I really do like meeting people and am curious about what makes them tick. For anything serious, There needs to be chemistry for me, but that's always a little unpredictable.
Where you might come in: I adore strong, smart, well-rounded women. Ideally I'm looking for someone who I can have fun with inside and outside the bedroom, creative, funny and with a big geek streak. Oh yes, and sane, sane, sane. I'm not vanilla, and don't pretend to be, but if you aren't either, or if that's not a factor for you, well by all means say hello. Heck, even if you're just curious, it never hurts to ask. Geekiness, artsiness, and university education are big plusses, too.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think coffee and conversation are always a good starting point, whatever the venue. Beyond that, well, it depends where our interests intersect, really. The museum, maybe? A good hike? Lewis Black concert?
