I'm an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, wrapped in a jacket. But now to dispel all that, to dish out the full dope, the fat skinny, the… ugh, I’m bad at this.
I'm organized, but kind of messy; funny, but serious; caring, but hands off; a little cynical, but not a pessimist; and... and unable to think of any more parallel statements describing any pardoxical duality on my part.
I’m looking for a woman who has AT LEAST 3 of the 5 following attributes: 1) a great personality; 2) intelligence; 3) nice gams; 4) vast personal wealth; and 5) a head.
Yes, sense of humor is a must, though for my part I’ll try not to be one of those insecure "funny" guys who can’t go two sentences without throwing in a joke. So, these two ducks walk into a bar…
I love confident and assertive women, but I'm not usually assertive myself. I'm an introvert, a bit reserved with my thoughts and feelings, and careful about letting myself be vulnerable. Yes, most dates I've been on from this site resulted from women who messaged me first.
I was raised LDS, and was a regular church goer until a few years ago. You've heard of those people who are spiritual but not religious? Well, I was religious but not spiritual. It just took me a long time to admit to myself I didn't believe any of it. I'm basically an atheist now (though I don't use that label), and I don't have any interest in spirituality, but I find the sociology of religion interesting.
My preference would be to find someone similarly not religious. Another Mormon “apostate” would certainly be lovely (and I know there are at least a few of you out there), but non-religious of any stripe is welcome. Still, be ready for some puzzling stuff from me occasionally. ("What do you mean, you wanna watch The Ten Commandments? What's wrong with you?")
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For a first date, I like taking someone to lunch or dinner, or on a walk, or something else that would give us a chance to talk. And eat. Eating's good.
