Never petted a tiger, run a Tough Mudder, taken a bathroom selfie or been to Machu Picchu. OKCupid admins are bound to shut me down any second now.
I've got your/you're, then/than and its/it's on lockdown (less so which/that). This alone puts me in, what, OKC's 85th percentile?
I tend to dream of plane crashes, wildly proportioned architecture, invasions and other sorts of calamity. But during waking hours, it's the little things I find most compelling.
There ARE other things I care about, I promise. Big, important things that span continents and centuries. I just can't think of any right now. Ask again later.
In the meantime, I'll save us the time and energy of the inevitable question everyone seems to ask: "What are you looking for on here?"...
My innumerable conversations and dates on OKCupid have taught me not to form preconceptions about what I'm looking for. I used to. I've had phases of, for example, looking for something purely physical. I've had phases of looking for someone to spend "all" my time around. I've had phases of looking for folks to do fun things with. But one thing that's made itself clear since starting this ridiculous online dating venture is that preconceptions just don't work. Period.
So now, I come into each new conversation and each date with a blank slate and zero expectations. Would it be great to have some sort of clothes-shreddingly torrid affair? If both parties are into it, then fuck yeah it would. Would it be great to make a fantastic new friend who brightens my life in all kinds of ways? Absolutely. Would it be great to meet someone exciting and attractive to just spend some time with and get to know? No doubt. Would it be great to find The One and fall madly in love and make a whole bunch of the most brilliant and staggeringly beautiful babies the world has ever seen? Of course it would.
Any and all outcomes would each be great in their own way. But I don't -- and won't -- push deliberately toward any of them until the course makes itself clear. We meet. I talk. You talk. I laugh. You laugh. From there it's one moment to the next, and wherever things end up, great, it'll be a blast when we get there.
