I have an eclectic taste in music and a sense of humor that ranges from witty to sarcastic, self deprecating to plain old dorky! I believe in looking for the good in everyone. If you are someone who takes yourself too seriously too often, you will find that I will be inclined to amuse myself at your expense. Life is too short for that kind of nonsense. Silliness and frivolity, in the appropriate setting, are virtues and not character flaws.
My idea of a good time does not include bungee jumping, cliff diving, running with the bulls or swimming with sharks. It does include a good Law and Order marathon, full contact pillow fights and watching a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. I've returned to school to complete my degree I started a gazillion years ago, so you do potentially have the opportunity to tell your friends that you're dating a college girl. : )
I am a self sufficient, confident woman who is not looking for her other half. I am looking for someone who considers witty banter foreplay (think Boogie and Bacall or Tracey and Hepburn), believes in the lost art of a great kissing session, knows how to speak in complete sentences and can hold his own (and make me look good!) at a company event...and a family dinner.
I thrive on conversation, dialogue, the exchange of thoughts and ideas. The topic can be as deep and complex as world politics (note: discussion not debate) to the utterly ridiculous....something along the lines of how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. (Rumor has it that it's three.) So, a message that says simply "Hi" or "How are you?" Ummm....more than likely, not going to capture my attention. In the interest of full disclosure, writing a 10 paragraph dissertation, while noble, doesn't mean I'll be burning up the keys of my phone or iPad in an attempt to reply ASAP. If something in your message or profile doesn't resonate with me, you don't have a picture, if you live an unrealistic distance away or you're closer in age to either my kids or my mom, I will most likely not reply.
Just a note- I can't see if you want to "Meet Me". A plethora of you have been clicking (or swiping) and it is an exercise in futility.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date implies we've met and decided to see each again...
Let's first meet and start with something low key that allows for conversation. I'm good with the coffee or adult beverage "thing" to give us a chance to see if there's a spark. Hope springs eternal....
