Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
i'm very much in casual dating mode right now - my life has been in
turmoil for several years as i've attempted to switch gears from
graphic design to the medical field so until i'm better grounded
and on my feet i think for now i'm just looking to meet new people
and have fun. my new years resolution this year was to quit being a
dork sitting at home on a friday night playing computer games - so
here i am!
Well it's 2012 now. It's been a LONG time since i originally wrote
this and i like to leave it up there just so you know where i've
been and where I'm coming from.. but i'm not looking for just
casual anymore.. but i *am* picky with whom i want to be in a
relationship with. As I enjoy the thrill of dating and meeting all
kinds of new people i'll continue to do so until i meet the person
who makes me want to stop dating:)
update 2013 - i think it's time to be a little bit more specific...
and also explain some stuff - yes i first made my profile in 2006..
i've been a member here for a very long time - 2 years of that i
was in school full time and barely able to date - since then i've
met so many nice people on here and have had a few girlfriends come
and go... my facebook is filled with friends and exes who are
friends that i will always remain connected to. Whenever i am
single i come back to okcupid as it is simply a great tool to meet
people i would normally never run into. I keep my profile always a
work in progress as it should hopefully give you some insight into
where i'm coming from.
I AM seeking something longterm. Somehow i made it to the
age of 42 with having never been married, and no children, but i'm
not giving up hope just yet:) For me to allow myself to become
serious with someone and seek a long term relationship.. they
ideally will have no kids yet, and hopefully never
been married as well.. so that we as a couple can experience both
of those events together for the first time. If you already have
kids, and especially if you've decided to not have any more, we
would probably not be a good match long term. It may be a
pipedream, but it's my pipedream. :)
With that said, nothing is set in stone and these are guidelines
meant to be broken by someone awesome enough to make me want to
break them. :)
I am fully capable of just dating for fun, enjoying the moment, and
if i'm not currently with Miss Right, i'm ok with Miss Right Now -
as i simply love discovering a new person for the first time. I was
hiding in a shell for too long and the more i see what's out there
the less likely i am to go back. Enjoying life in the moment
sometimes ain't so bad. I understand not everyone is capable of the
same.. such is life... and preferences.. and we all have ours.
