Life is completely absurd to begin with and then we throw in internet dating? We are amazingly wonderful and ridiculous creatures. Our hope and faith is so strong that we continue to believe….and yes after years of dating I still believe that something magical will happen.
I wanted to write a book on internet dating, but figured more people might read this than a book. Here are some basic observations. Profiles don’t mean anything. It’s a self-description…duh. If it were up to me, you would have to get three ex-spouses/boy/girlfriends to write your profile. Then we’d know the real you/me. Reading online profiles is funny. Everyone likes the same stuff. The entire world is “down to earth” and “attractive” and “likes the outdoors” and “loves to travel”. I had to stop going to the beach because it's been so overcrowded with people who have met on the internet. And what is this talk about baggage? Why does everyone think they don’t have baggage but that everyone else has baggage? The truth of the matter is that we all have some baggage. Some have carry on, some need to check it in at the gate…the ones who carry it around like a full backpack are the ones to avoid. Otherwise, enjoy your baggage. It is what has made you what you are today. Look inside your baggage, there may be something cute for you to wear around. Another profile pet peeve is the serial dating thing. Why does anyone have anything against people dating each other? I am a serial dater while looking for someone special for me. You have to search for your own treasure by digging a lot of empty holes. I will stop serial (cereal?) shopping when I find one that's crunchy, flavorful, nutty, fruity, healthy, organic, raw, tender (sometimes not so much), natural, sweet, somewhat non-vanilla and very wet.
We are all looking for a customized mate in an off-the-rack-world!
One last comment..the “no drama” thing. Anyone who says that doesn’t understand life. Life is a comedy, adventure, drama, tragedy with a little documentary thrown in. We are naturally emotional. I believe the better term would be to not hold your drama in, but to let it out in a non-threatening manner. Maybe we should all take “drama” classes?
For me, relationships begin and end with the chemistry between us. That X factor that no one really understands. In the real world you meet first. That way you know if there is any attraction. On the internet you meet last. We can even give each other great phone and when you meet…nothing. Also, why do people lie on these sites? If you are lying about your age, marital status, height, weight…it’s going to come out soon enough. Why do some people put pictures from 10 years ago? I ain’t no idiot and will figure that one out soon enough too. A personal policy…if you lie on your profile…a simple test of honesty, you will probably lie about other things much more important later on. Another point about pictures…the most frustrating are the ones from 100’ away (huh?) or how about the ones with the ex cut out or the selfie in the car (is it a law to have one?) or my favorite is the self-portrait in the bathroom (just leave out the toilet next time...please)
Finally, why do people take it so personally when you tell them there is no connection? If I feel anything, I will try to go on a second date with you. If there is nothing, there is no point. I appreciate it when a woman is honest with me and says there is no connection for her. Why waste time? NEXT! We are all looking for the one…I want it all. Don’t you? Have fun out there for now.
You have to laugh at yourself or you end up taking this level of existence too seriously.
My weird thought for the day:
Why I don't watch horror movies! We all know the formula. Something weird happens and the actor goes to investigate and gets "consumed" by the "entity" in control.
So, I am sitting on my bed and suddenly there is this weird ripping/dropping sound coming from under the bed (really, no drugs were involved). As I go to investigate I find myself going to the other side of the room before getting down to look under the bed so the "monster" wouldn't be able to grab me. I do get to crack myself up.
Never figured out what caused it.
Who am I? Great question. Here is what I think so far:
Peace loving natural holistic spiritual libertarian (limited government, socially liberal) old hippie with a NY attitude northwestern mellowness vivid imagination quasi-crazy/kinky (according to society) completely sane (in the eyes of the sovereign-minded) very adventurous but there's no-place-like-home kind of guy. I am also an attempting practitioner of The Four Agreements.
What am I looking for? Better question:
I have no preference as to height, weight, eyes, hair, etc. There are things I like though...it is impossible to describe but words like cheerful, funny, sultry, feminine, intelligent, strong, seductive, assertive (when needed) come to mind. Other preferences include how you take care of your body. Do you eat right? Exercise? More into nature than the city? I love cities for what they offer, but would much rather live in the country. Meaning no disrespect, my personal preference is little to no make-up.
If money is more important than laughter, romance, friendship or sex...we are probably not a match. I'm not against money at all. It's about what's essential for me.
Do you use your mind to think for yourself? My personal view is most people base their thoughts on what others say, especially the "lamestream" media. THEY ARE LYING TO US EVERYDAY! The same money powers that control government control the media. If you believe in We The People, free enterprise and you understand what the Founders had in mind, that is an excellent start. Whether you are a Republicrat or a Demican, it really doesn’t matter. Economics is what matters and both parties are really good at spending money we don’t have. My beliefs say it is wrong to leave debt to future generations just because someone wanted some benefit today. Everything in this world is upside down and moving in the wrong direction. Despite what the media says, there are other choices out there.
Here is what it boils down to; compatibility and chemistry.
If what I have said here connects with you, then hit that “send a message” button and say hello. If not, I wish you all the best for the future. I have no enemies in this world…anywhere.
I feel better now that we have shared this passion together. Was it good for you?
If someone says 'I love you' and you don't feel the same way, say 'I love youtube' really fast!
