Please keep in mind while reading it that I don't speak as formally as I type (not sure why I do that, really), and that it is not an inclusive indicator of my personality type, but more of a reflection on the mood I was in when I wrote it (playful, and really long-winded, apparently). Like you, my moods change also, except that I don't have a monthly alibi for it.
Anyway, I think the first thing you should know about me, is that I'm a squirrel reincarnated. Er no, wait... the first thing you should know about me is that I'm probably not the person you perceive me to be from my pictures. I don't wear Affliction/Ed Hardy clothing, do not drive a jacked-up 4x4 truck, and am not a douchebag that's just trying to get in your pants. Sorry, if that's what you're looking for, as I'm sure most of you are. I'd rather be single than with the wrong girl.
I hail from a mysterious and forgotten land where people still cut their own grass, clean their own houses, make their beds every morning, put the toilet lid down, raise their children on garden fresh vegetables instead of candy, wash their hands before handling food, keep the cap on the milk jug, teach their pets to behave, value self-sufficiency, prefer homes that are cozy to those that echo, and don't require getting high or intoxicated to have a good time.
I highly respect a girl who takes the time to write a few paragraphs (not just sentences) about herself in her profile, and even more-so if her spelling/grammar/punctuation are correct (please excuse my sentence fragments). It's a sign of intelligence, and that's attractive. It's also a sign that she cares about how others perceive her, which is a great reflection of her character. Bonus points if you manage to do all of that, and you're blonde.
A few (possibly embellished) things about me:
-I once took an I.Q. test. I scored 410. I then took a test for dyslexia and laifed.
-I once lifted the back half of my buddy's S-10 pickup (minus the bed and fuel tank) completely off the ground by myself. On a related note, I used to be 6' 1".
-I'm mature for my age, or so I've been told. I mentioned it to a friend. She laughed. Asked if I was certain they hadn't said, "manure"... now I have a therapist.
-I always look for solutions to problems and instead of being a Debbie-Downer, I look on the bright side of everything, until my flashlight runs out of batteries.
- If you're looking for a guy whom is "real", "honest", "nice",
"normal", "intelligent", "not a douchebag", "good-hearted", "down-to-earth", "fun", "funny", and all kinds of other nice stuff, I sincerely am at least one of those things, so now all we need is mutual attraction. Plus, I'm schizophrenic, so you get 2 of me! (not really)
On a serious note (again), I'm hoping to meet someone genuinely down to earth also, with some wit and charm. I appreciate a woman who is intelligent and strong, has her own opinions, but also has enough tact and humility to express them without arrogance or condescension when interacting with people holding an opposing view, even if they're complete morons. With any luck, she (you?) will be introspective and open-minded.
Also, if you recognize that it's far more important to be a child's parent than friend, and know the difference between the two, that would be peachy.
