We’re not looking to play "pen pal" through our iPhones because we know that all text and no play makes for much bordom.
If I’m interested in you, I won’t wait three days to call, and I’ll actually call you, and when I do, I’ll ask you out for dinner, make reservations, pick a great bottle of wine (because I know how to) and then make sure you get home safely, unless you wanted to come home with me…haha ;-)
If I want to see you again, I’ll let you know, and if I don't, I will politely let you know that it was a pleasure to spend time with you, even if it wasn't. I will, however, let you know gently and firmly enough that I’m not interested so that you don't waste your time thinking it might become something it won't.
I’ll enjoy it when you don't agree with me because it means I get to indulge you in a good debate or leave you thinking a little bit harder about things than when you sat down in front of me.
I open doors and pull out chairs, not because I feel a woman is weak, but because I’m strong enough to show that I care about the comfort of those around me.
Sure, I might want to get a woman into my bed, but I’m also interested in getting into her head as experience has shown me that seduction is a delicate dance and the man who resides in her mind has conquered every other part of her.
I appreciate a woman who shows she cares for me, but I’m not interested in being courted. I enjoy taking the lead in courting and don’t need to be "chased" because I’m in desperate need of an ego stroke. I also won't play "puppy dog" to a woman who takes advantage of this.
I’m not looking to be anyone's father or savior, and I don't pretend to be the leading man in any woman's fairy tale. I’m just a man looking for a partner who can slay her own dragons, pay her own bills and explore the world alongside me.
I want a woman who doesn't need me, but wants me, not for money or the happiness or a baby or a safety net, but solely for who I am.
I have taken the time to get to know myself and have a strong understanding of my own character and convictions, what I value and what I don't. I’m a man who is honest with himself about himself and therefore is OK being honest with those around me.
I take as much pride in the way I treat women I’m with as I do my job and the way I look.
I’m not the bad boy, a good boy, or a boy at all, I’m a man. A leading man, and I’m looking not for a good girl, but a great woman. One who shares all of the solid qualities that I bring to the table, and perhaps, can teach me something along the way. I’m willing to wait and work for this woman, to fight for her and will gladly hold out for her as long as I need to. But when she comes along, I won't sit on the fence; I’m smart enough to know when I’ve gotten damned lucky. And when she finds me, she should be smart enough to know the same.
