Why am I on here? Probably the same reason you are. Someone said to me...if you want to find a new job, you send out some résumés, right? If you want to meet people these days, this type of site is the modern-day equivalent of a "dating resume." (Ok, fair enough).
I was on here for awhile in the fall, and had found someone with whom I wanted to give things a chance, so had disabled my account for awhile (yes it CAN and SHOULD be done!) But alas, I find myself back here... Beginning my search anew...
Compulsory bio stuff: I've been living down here in Florida now for 8 years. I still cheer for my Minnesota teams (particularly the Vikings!) first and always. I'm an attorney, and just recently made partner in my firm. I've spent a lot of time and energy over the past several years working hard toward that goal.
While I have been very driven to meet my career goals, I am also easygoing, and don't take myself too seriously. OK, let's face it, I'm a goofball in search of a fellow goofball! (I am often seen singing out loud in my car at red lights, and I don't give a darn!)
I have never been married, and don't have any children. I do, however, have an ill-behaved but lovable half-Siamese kitten that I adopted last spring at the Humane Society.
Does anyone read this far in a profile? If I started talking about the dancing elephants and hippos from Fantasia at this point... Would that matter? (Actually I love Mickey in the Sorcerer's hat!)
My spiritual side believes strongly in the concept of karma, and I try to treat everyone the way that I want to be treated. I also strongly believe in chivalry, and still open doors, walk on the outside of the curb, etc. I blame (thank?) my mother for raising me to be a gentleman!
I am a romantic, and believe 'real love' still exists, and I hope to some day find it. I don't view or approach dating as a "sport," and prefer quality over quantity (I know...they may take away my man-card for that one!). I ultimately believe in the power and potential of a partnership between a man and a woman who are willing to be emotionally open with one another.
But in the meantime, I also don't believe that every date needs to have the pressure of leading to "the one," and it is nice to meet new people and make new friends along the way, so either way... all good! :-)
