I want to go 'off topic' for a moment. The age ranges that I put down for me are really ball park figures. Age really is so damn relative, and there are young people who seem 'old' and 'old' people who are young. That being said, originally, I had a somewhat higher 'age range' here, and I was getting alot of messages from much older guys who really were, well, older......in appearance and attitude. To be totally honest, I also started to get annoyed by all the men my age who had 25-40 as their 'range', so I decided to put 30 at the lower end. That was also influenced by some 'lovely messages' (to quote OKC) I have received from some younger fellows, which got me thinking.....why not? Ok. Glad we had this talk
I love language, words.......riffing on life. Lived in France when I was in my 20s, married a French guy, and learned to speak French. Not necessarily in that order, though. This describing one's self thing is super uncomfortable. Well, ok, I'm starting to warm up, but really, i'm better at showing off in person? So many "I " sentences......goodgrief. Maybe that's a healthy reaction to it. OK, moving on. At my age, you're supposed to know yourself, a little, anyway, although I sort of don't really like any sentence that begins with 'at my age'. Having said that, I do know a few things about myself, especially what I'm not. I'm not boring or insipid or, in the very least, try not to be (and now you already know I'm not dumb, due to clever word usage?)
I like to be self mocking, because I suppose there is plenty about 'the self' to mock. I dislike anything that smells of self importance ( making this entire profile seem like utter hypocrisy, but, you know, hey) I often laugh loud and hard if I think somethings funny. On occasion , friends have been known to move a seat or two down the aisle in a movie theater, if Im getting too sort of loud....but I really do try and keep a handle on it.
Somehow, I've raised a bright and lovely daughter, who is smarter, wiser and cooler than me, ( ....if that's even possible?) so I suppose it's fair to say "the student has surpassed the master". She is a young woman out in the world now, and while I am always her mom, we are friends, and I don't just love her, I really respect and like her, too.
One more thing. I must comment on the questions and results of same. The "OK Cupid" graph says I'm ' less mannered', 'more aggressive', 'kinkier', ' less romantic' and more 'indie' than other women. The thing is, I did answer the questions as honestly as I could, given the fact that some.of the choices were very constraining. And btw, I still can't believe I even answered most of those sex questions, mygod. But then I think, well, what's the big deal. Having said that, I would like to say that I'm a serious person, and I am not here to find casual sex. That is easy enough to get, if one so desires it. I would hope for something more meaningful than that. And many of the 'conclusions' aren't really all that true. The 'indie' thing, i'm ok with, but not so much the rest of it. First of all, I believe in manners, which I think are pretty damn important, as far as human behavior goes, and I am polite and really have a strong aversion to selfishness and rudeness( for example, I don't like to hurt peoples' feelings, I mean, I avoid even hurting my dogs' feelings, which is pretty much every time I leave my house without them, so thats really tough, and I think its more than rude to not give a crap about treating our planet kindly and gently ). As for the kinky reference, I am not here for anything shallow? I grew up with pretty hip liberal parents who didn't put a lot of shame or guilt around the whole subject of sexuality, but I am not a casual person. That doesn't mean something needs to be a big huge deal? I am romantic, but not so much in the western sense ( well, OK, I realize the word itself is derived from Western sensibilities ) that implies all the things our culture has made it into, and reduced it to. I hope this helps to offset some of the 'staff robot's' conclusions, even a little bit, for God's sake. Thankyouverymuch
