On the other hand, I’m smart, funny, creative, resourceful, a great listener, politically aware (and pretty liberal), gainfully employed, debt-free, and a homeowner but neither polished nor sophisticated. I love the arts and am a pretty good cook and a sparkling conversationalist. I don’t like to sit around doing nothing on the weekend; there’ll be plenty of time for doing nothing when I’m dead. My sand chair and beach umbrella get a lot of use. My iPod runneth over and my Kindle and bookshelves are filled to the brim. Yes, Joey has a bit of the geek in him, and he’s not at all ashamed of it – but he also can still knock down a jump shot from twelve feet (although he doesn’t jump nearly as high as he once did) and hit a nifty two-handed backhander down the line. He likes educated, intelligent, independent-thinking women who are smart enough to realize they can’t change a 56-year-old guy but wise enough to recognize that if they play their cards right, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to boss him around in the future.
Now, a little about you. You're warm and perceptive – warm is very important to me – and aware of what's going on in the world
around you; you know that Afghanistan is not a type of oriental carpet. You believe that Barack Obama is an American-born
Christian. Your personality is not all smoothness and curves: you have an edge about you but are not a type A personality. You have a great sense of humor and laugh often and heartily. You never begin a sentence with "Dr. Phil says" or "According to
Oprah." You know the difference between “its” and “it’s,” between “there” and “their,” between “your” and “you’re,” and between
“compliment” and “complement.” When it comes to kissing, you believe practice makes perfect. You've probably never participated in a "photo shoot." You have no interest whatsoever
in the exploits of anyone named Kardashian and understand that there's nothing at all "real" about those real Bravo housewives.
The words "Harley," "Nascar," and "multiple tongue and body piercings" are nowhere to be found in your profile. You do not
consider “spanx” to be lingerie. You share your chocolate - because you know I share mine. You read books – real books, not just self-help books. You have not bought into this “must love dogs” nonsense. You’re fun, you believe you deserve to be happy, and you’re ready, willing, and able to love if the right guy comes along. Don't be shy - say hello.
