I am, however, officially sick of the online B.S. so have decided to do some fine tuning on my profile. I have not lost all hope and do believe there are good men out there so I will attempt to do my best presenting myself as I AM, not who I want to be or who I think anybody on here would want me to be in hopes to find someone that presents themselves the same!
I believe that nowadays girls have made the dating process too easy on men, especially in the cyber world. I have been a culprit of this on occasion throughout my own dating adventures but have learned that men will act and make decisions based on what you let them do. So to clarify I do not expect you to pick me up on my doorstep with flowers and take me to a gourmet meal on our first date but please do your research and put at least some thought into this. Taking a girl to your local tavern where you know half of the clientele, hug the entire female bar staff and then ask to split the tab should NOT be an acceptable date to any woman.
I do know what I deserve and have had my moments for settling for less but I am officially raising the bar and for the sole purpose that this will weed out and eliminate any man that thinks the above date is okay. If this means an 80% decrease in emails and responses – so be it- saves me time and wasted energy that could be used elsewhere.
I by no means think I am better than all, but am aware of my competition. I know what I have to offer, am very stable in every sense of the word, own up to my faults and absolutely expect the same in any potential partner. I won’t show and tell all there is to know on the first date or try to sell myself as a hot commodity. I think my quiet confidence will speak for itself.
I am extremely loyal to all that have proven their value throughout the years and I am sure to let their importance be known! I am not one to follow trends, take on ideas or the personality of those around me. I am unique and true to myself, my beliefs and my values.
I am not perfect; I have student loans, a little emotional damage and a few insecurities, I use curse words (not in excess) and I very occasionally skip a workout and get a milkshake instead. BUT – I will not lie, will always stick to my word, will not be dependent on anybody else for my happiness or security, will always be up for a new adventure or thrill, will do my best to always communicate effectively and will never expect anybody to sacrifice their own hobbies and interests for the sake of a relationship. I am an extremely understanding person, mellow, down to earth and can have a good time in almost any situation. I do my best to stay away from any drama or negativity and have made a commitment to myself to take each day as an opportunity for growth. I have emotional days, like any female on this earth but keep my positive attitude affluent the best that I can.
I love and am passionate about many things....my friends (# 1) , reading, road trips, the beach, cooking magazines, book stores, outlet malls, sushi, country music, exploring new restaurants, college football games, making lists, traveling to new places, diet coke, massages, WINE, comedy, drive- in movies, movies in general, reality tv, yoga and other exercise, and meeting new amazing people that challenge and inspire me.
I am not desperate to find a man and will take as long as possibly needed to find a good fit. Too many people settle for fear of the unknown and I refuse to fall into this trap. I am hoping to find someone that can add to and inspire my already busy life. I have many interests and things that I aspire to do. I have learned that life doesn’t always go as planned and I am getting better and better at adapting to that and accepting each experience as an opportunity.
If you actually made it through my novel of a profile and are interested I would love to hear from you! Best of luck!!
