I'm a single mom with a six month old son, not really sure I want to be dating. I would say I'm here for friends but I'm not a very social person either, as unhealthy as that is..
I don't get out much, hardly meet new people, new to the area so I don't have many friends..
Eventually I know I'll want to be with someone so perhaps this is the stage of effort? If I do decide to allow myself into a relationship it obviously won't be very simple, I have a child and he is a very large factor in everything, we also visit his father every month; if you're a man ready for a serious relationship that's great, but it doesn't necessarily mean you're ready for one that involves a child, that's where it's complicated.
Do not make your greeting an automatic flirt, that will instantly make me lose interest, I can accept a compliment but if your first words to me are purely sexual or flirtatious or something referring to me being beautiful or something like that I probably won't reply, I'm not a prude, I just have a little more self-respect than most girls. So to make myself more clear, starting out your message (or it only consisting of) "Hey beautiful/gorgeous" or "Omg u r so beautiful! *marry me please because I'm already obsessed*" will result in your message being ignored or if it's really creepy, me blocking you.
I only really want to be in a relationship if it feels like something that will last. More importantly, even if it would be difficult considering my taste in men, I need someone responsible, anyone who sticks around will have to be a good influence on my boy :P
If you're squeamish, closed-minded, or very religious (practicing > non-practicing/ would want your children raised with religion), I'm not for you, trust me.
Also, though I had a child not too long ago, I take damn good care of myself/my body, and not by dieting or starving myself like a lot of girls, I'm not shallow, I'm just not into guys that don't have enough self-respect to keep themselves in decent condition. In other words, if you are pudgy or fat, I am not interested, sorry, but physical attraction is important, and I am not a bad person, it's called having standards. I am also not a fan of large beards or mustaches (they creepy me out) and in terms of "types" I'm not into "country boys/rednecks" or "gangsta/homeboys".
I'm a huge nerd, I'm a little weird, don't like it? Too bad. If you can't even type properly (i.e. Like if you shorten three letter words into one letter, it's fucking annoying, grow up.) or you make yourself look like a dipshit you aren't worth the response.
I love tattoos, I plan on getting quite a few big ones, and I love metal (though it's not the only thing I listen to, and not that new-age emo-screamo bs either...think more Dimmu Borgir/Kamelot/Children Of Bodom); I'm not some goody-two-shoes "goes with the flow" kind of girl, I'm a little reckless, and a little fiery (once I'm comfortable), I'm very analytic and very particular, I will not reply if I find nothing interesting, harsh? No, I just don't get people's hopes up, I don't play games, I'm tired of feeling alone and I don't like the mundane.
I am 20, if you are my age or younger, you are too young for me, but also, 30 years or more is too old for me.
For those curious, I'm half Filipino, half american (mostly).
Random quirks in relation to about 75% of the guys on here:
1.) Do you even read my profile? I've tried not to make it too terribly long, and I generally put important things on there, like reasons that would make me not reply to you, yet 98% of the messages I receive are either worded in a similar fashion or typed by individuals I expressly made clear that I would not be attracted to.
2.) Why do you have pictures that make you look creepy, has nobody told you how creepy that picture is?
3.) Why are you lifting up your shirt to show off your abs? If you have them and want to brag, just take the damn shirt off, lifting it up makes you look stupid! Do you have some kind of abnormal nipple monstrosity you're trying to hide?
4.) Why do you wear sunglasses and a cap? The sunglasses should be sufficient enough to block the sunlight. Oh wait, you're indoors? WTF. If you really wanna hide that much of your face put on a superhero mask, at least it's funny and attractive. Or more questionably, why do you just barely put your hat on top of your head and turned sideways so as to produce the appearance of a ridiculously elongated head? It doesn't make you look smart if you're thinking "Aww snap, if I wear my hat like this maybe the ladies gonnna think I got a huge brain under here, ****ing genius shit." No.
5.) Some of you guys have HORRIBLE spelling and grammar issues, I can understand a mistake here and there, but the stuff that is repetitive or seemingly intentional? Did you really waste your time in school or do you, for some reason, think it makes you more appealing? Because it doesn't.
6.) The "YOLO" headline is really getting old, it's like Carpe Diem for the less mature, be more creative.
7.) I won't even be old enough to legally drink until the end of 2013, so if you are old enough to be my father, or even 15-16 years older than me, do NOT even try; it's really gross to get messages from you 50-something-year-old men, have some self respect and charm women closer to your age.
There's more but I'll post them as I go, seeing as this site is just making me bored and increasingly hopeless.
