Yes, it is up to you to steal me away from this insidious monster. This beast. This carousel of false hope. I see the brass ring every day, and yet, as I grab it, it seems to vanish before my eyes. Then another one appears. I am in the Twilight Zone, but there are no matter-of-fact quips from Rod Serling explaining my plight. No ma'am, not in this bizarro universe. On here I see women jumping out of airplanes, shooting at targets, dressed to the nines in sequin gowns & filing into red carpet events (& these are the same women). Gee whillikers, GI Jane, I think you need to consider a career as a special agent. No one plays anything down on here. Let's go take a photo on top of the Taj Mahal, or on the fingertip of the Cristo Redentor statue. Watch that step! Don't you dare to appear human or normal...let's use another word "approachable." Rather, just maximize everything & spin things to make yourself look like the biggest bang in the fireworks arsenal. I must say, I'm not overly impressed by such things. Ladies...I have been to many said locations & been to many events. I have tasted the nectar from the chalice, I just feel nauseous & a bit pretentious spouting off about it on a dating site. There are other ways to set yourself apart from the pack (a well-placed smile & an open mind are wonderful hooks) - and just a tip from a lonely traveler in the dating desert...it's much more powerful if I learn something amazing about you by accident rather than have it slung in my face up front.
I am a down-to-earth, friendly, accomplished, educated guy with a career I love & an open slot for the right gal. I've seen a good bit of the planet & plan to see more. Where's my hippy chick, my down-to-earth girl without affectation or pretension? Do I have to travel 500 miles to find her? I hope not. Where's the "I'm not afraid to take a walk on the wild side, or eat street food fried up by an illegal immigrant." Where's "I smell natural because we've been walking around all day, but will you give me a foot massage anyway?" Why yes, I will! That about sums me up - or what I am looking for, at least. Intelligent, kind-hearted & natural. Onward!
