As articulate as I can be, I'm not going to try to sell myself on here so this will be a different read than other profiles. I'm sure some might even be turned off by me but hey, I am who I am and I like what I like, and I don't apologize for it. I'm actually not picky, I just have a few preferred preferences, as you will find out if you read this novel *ahem*, I mean profile :)
I will first say that I'm rather unique and I guess different than most women. In saying that, I just mean that I don't conform to society just to fit in, with many aspects of my life actually. Such as, my ideas on marriage, & also the below mentioned things.
So let's start. Shall we begin with the superficial things first? I think that's a good opening since sadly a lot of people concentrate so much on the physical when dealing with online dating....
Okay, so here's the thing, I have never been turned on by tattoos. I know, shocker right!?! Everyone seems to have at least one nowadays but I adore clean skin and a clean cut guy, hence the reason I'm not one to like facial hair or a lot of body hair. But I have to be fair & say that I do find some ink or artwork lovely on 'some' fellas. My eyes might have even liked one or two before but it's not my norm.
There's more....I've never been attracted to the bad-boy type. I don't care for motorcycles or heavy bar-boys that need to drink/party all the time and do drugs. I don't judge the ones that do, I just live a pretty clean lifestyle & I like to occupy my time with like-minded people.
I'm more of a homebody nowadays or I have changed into becoming more of an introvert, for various reasons, but having said that, I can also be extroverted. Sometimes I need to just get away from the noise of life, so to speak. And sometimes certain people can suck the energy right out of me, so I like to recharge/decompress. I actually often prefer to be home alone hanging with myself to eliminate all the unnecessary headaches. Flabbergasted? Well I'm not done yet.
I'm not a big fan of guys that use profanity in a big time way. I suppose there's a proper time & place for that *wink wink*. But seriously speaking, out of all the beautiful English words to choose from, to me profanity shows a lazy way of expressing oneself.
K, I'm still not finished but almost....
While I believe that everyone is free to do as they wish with their life, I cannot tolerate being around anyone, friends or family, that smoke. I just can't do it. It's more of a slight health issue of mine that doesn't like the smoke, plus I'm sure you'll agree, it's down right disgustingly stinky!
With all due respect, I'm not interested in what you do for a living, well more importantly how much money you make. You won't ever hear me asking you what you do for work & I really appreciate people that do not concentrate on that as well, & also refrain from asking me that silly question. If you ask, especially in the first message, I most likely will not respond back to you.
Your work does not define you. I'm more interested in your soul, your spirit, how you treat others & yourself & what your outlook on life is, & also what has shaped you into who you are today.
Okay lastly, here's the weirdest part of all this read, to some anyway. I realize I am on a dating site and I'm well aware of how it works, however I'm really not looking for that special love to settle down with, get married and have that white picket fence. I've never wanted the latter. And I'm not on here looking for booty calls or hook ups either. That's just scary & reckless.
I'm really just looking around a bit, reading profiles & kinda doing some people watching as it's a favourite past time of mine, and this is an easy way of doing it wouldn't you say? I'm not really window shopping per se but if something or someone intrigues me enough, I just might investigate it further. But I've been totally alone, by choice, no dates or anything, for a very long time as I took myself off of the dating market all together. You'd be shocked at how long but I've preferred it that way. I mean, being single sucks. All I get to do anymore is whatever the frig I want to do :) Seriously though, I really like myself & I'm fun to hang out with as I never get bored of me. Ha! But if I'm intrigued, maybe some funky-fun times can be had. But not like that, Geesh! hehe. Just some good laughs, good company/cuddles with someone who mutually agrees we are truly just friends. Ideally at some point in my life it would be lovely to have a life companion but I'd need to be wooed by that special someone, 'someday'.
Clearly I'm not afraid of being alone. I quite enjoy it actually as there is less headaches/heartaches that way. C'mon, you all know what I mean. Plus I can comfortably sleep at night knowing that no one is cheating on me. Kinda joking there, but not really. I'm positive that there is a cheater reading this profile at the moment. Perhaps even two or three. Tee hee.
A BIT ABOUT ME:
Even though I'm quite quirky, or can be at times, I know when to be serious and I'm very responsible/mature, but I can also be playful and silly, a little flirty and a bit of a smart-ass, in a good way. I can adapt/adjust in pretty much any gathering situation whether it's a casual jeans night or a more classy gathering with those foo-foo types lol. Don't worry, I'm tactful with manners. I embrace diversity & like to meet people of different ethnic backgrounds & enjoy like-minded people. Being somewhat adventurous, open, affectionate, sharp minded, making people laugh & being passionate/sensual allows me to live each moment to the fullest. I value honesty & deal in real life, real action & with real people. I don't have time for the liars in Computerland, plus I can smell you a mile away. Besides what kind of friendship would it be if you started off with a lie? I believe a friendship should enhance ones life not become ones life so no stalkers PLEASE! I've had my fair share of those and it's no fun.
THINGS I'M GOOD AT:
1. Being compassionate/empathetic. 2. Smiling easily & a lot! 3. Making people feel good about themselves. 4.Feeling energies around me & reading people. 5. I'm easy to talk to (so I've often been told). Perhaps that's why people tend to open up to me right away, when most say they never do with others. 6. Being cautious: *WARNING* Any institutions, individuals using this site/any of its associated sites for studies, projects, you do NOT have my permission to use any of my profile or pictures in any way/form/forum, past/present/future. If you do, it will be considered a violation of my privacy & will be subject to legal ramifications.
But lets be honest, anyone can look good on paper. I believe more in pheromones, eye contact, & body language.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First time is more of a meeting than a date, however I believe that there is no real ideal date, or what I like to call 'outings', only ideal company. If you are with the right person then anytime, anyplace, or anything can be a good first 'outing'.
As far as a first meeting I think a quick drink, hot or cold in a quiet place to get to know one another with limited amount of interruptions would be nice. Definitely in public to make sure that you are not a homicidal sociopath that will cut me up into small pieces, or a stalker. If you are extremely good looking, I'll consider overlooking those minor character flaws *wink*. lol
In the meantime respect/special friendship is what I'm seeking. I'm alone but NOT lonely. Not everyone who is single is lonely; not everyone who is taken is in love. One of the reasons I'm single is unless it's mad passionate extraordinary love it is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love should not be one of them. I do adore when the chemistry & pheromones are all in place. *Ahhhh* that's me sighing.
This might seem like a long list of likes but I'm really pretty simple. If you actually get through all the fluff in my profile, all the important things listed, I would hope are pretty much what anyone would like in a decent person/friend.
As you can see I made this profile very long & a bit of nonsense on purpose for various of reasons.
IT'S VERY IMPRESSIVE IF YOU HAVE READ ALL OF THIS PROFILE, OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE AS KOOKY AS I AM & THAT'S NEATO! haha neato? Who says that? A dorky, geeky-goofball, that's who! ;-)
Don't let my looks deceive you, I’m more than meets the eyes. Never judge a book by its movie. Haha
