I'm pretty sure that attraction occurs subconsciously. Attraction isn’t a choice and it’s hard to have any power over who you find attractive. That goes for both guys and girls. I'm not so sure about finding a match based on ten thousand different criteria. I hear about websites that match people based on all of these variables to find the person that you have the most in common with. I don’t think that this is how attraction works. It’s about personality, looks, and body language. Yeah, people who have everything in common might mesh great, but total opposites might mesh great too. I’m not sure the right person out there is someone who is exactly like you. Attraction is much more about what you’re actually like than what you do for a living, what you’re interested in, or where you live.
You'll have to let me hold the door for you, walk on the outside of the sidewalk, and wait to sit down until you sit down. That being said, I want to meet and mate with a mature woman as her equal, not as her servant or enemy. There seem to be a lot of women who expect to be equal but also expect to be courted at every whim. You can't have it both ways. I will happily chase you when you run and run when you chase me, but I won't bend over backwards to kiss your ass at every turn...every third turn maybe.
I’m not looking for a serious relationship, but I’d like to meet people in the area. I like girls who are really feminine and mature. Independence and self-sufficiency are great but it’s boring if both sexes aren’t a little vulnerable when appropriate. Like anyone, I value passion, honesty, intelligence, depth, reasonability, and humor. Can you think of anything more shallow than beauty?
The best kinds of dates are informal, casual ones. “Dinner” sounds so stilted. I really like picnics during the summer. Let’s go shop at IKEA. Let’s go dancing.
I’m a real social person. I have a tendency to just go up to people and talk to them. And I get bored in environments where no one is around. One of the things about the Midwest in general is that people seem to be really stand-offish. Everyone seems so shy. Sometimes I’ll go up to people and they’ll think they’re on Candid Camera. It’s weird that you go to a bar with 500 people in it and everyone just hangs out in their little cliques and nobody makes an effort to be outgoing. It’s like what’s the point of going out then?
I just finished a degree in scientific and technical communication. I don't know exactly where that's going to take me yet. My plan was to get a degree and go on to medical school or graduate school for research, but I’m more of a people person than a lab rat. I’m the analytical type and work well with similar people. Here again, though, I have quite a few friends that are complete opposites of me who would probably drive me nuts if I had everything in common with them.
I live, work, and do just about everything else downtown. I love it here. For recreation, I walk around town and get into as much trouble as possible, lift weights, complain about doing cardio, and play the piano and classical guitar. As cliché as it sounds, I love music and it’s a huge part of my life.
By the way, I like women in any discipline who use too much jargon. That’s hot.
Talk to me.
