Odds are high that I am not the guy for you. I have a very strong personality: I tell lots of jokes (many offensive), don't take life too seriously, and have a very demanding work life. Some women might even go so far as to describe me as arrogant, but to them I would say “Look mom , if I cared about your opinion I would have put you in a home with phones.” I am looking for a similarly strong minded, independent, sassy broad. Past this humorous, and I might add ruggedly handsome, exterior I am a pretty big softy, so in addition to being sassy hopefully you will have a sentimental core that will appreciate it when I bring you flowers, make you sappy mix tapes, or take pictures of you from the bushes outside your window. Ok I don't really do all that, flowers are way to expensive. If you find yourself hating male movie leads who are a-holes with a heart of gold you can probably stop reading. If you have a good sense of humor and can laugh about yourself and others, please continue.
It is really hard to write one of these profiles and not sound like a moron. Every single one is like "durr, I like food and friends". It's hard to tell if that is because people are modest and uncomfortable talking about themselves or because they are actually just not very bright. I am going to assume you understand that I enjoy having fun and doing all the things people do so I can conserve space to actually tell you about myself.
I grew up in Miami and then left, bucking the Jewish norm. Growing up in Miami I became accustomed to the heat always being on and partying, mainly in the streets, until the break of dawn. I loved the Cuban culture and to this day like my women like my Cuban food: spicy and cheap. I have been in Atlanta for almost a decade now since going to college at Emory and still can't get used to how slow people drive here.
I get along best with people who are relaxed but hard working as opposed to lazy or high strung. I like a woman with ambition, someone who is strong willed and capable. I prefer honesty and bluntness to games playing and being overly polite. Frequently in movies female characters like this only ever hang out with guys, drink beer, and like sports- that’s taking it a bit too far. I know a lot about practical things: economics, fixing things, vodka. I would like it if a woman could teach me about art, wine, multiple orgasms.
I don't really have a physical "type " per say, I can like long hair or short hair; to me it's more important that a women have style. If she does she can usually make any look work. On a scale of 1-10 how lame do you think it is that I both put type in quotes and added per say in that first sentence? I'd say a solid 8.
I think it's funny when people use trite little points to describe their perfect match like "my perfect date would have a tattoo on their ankle" or "My perfect match would like to laugh, be literate and not punch babies". They seem to be either arbitrary and capricious or somewhat insane. If you really think one small thing can make or break a person as a potential mate we probably won't get along. Unless you are really rich, at which point, I can change!
However, I seem to be in the minority on this one. So here are some of mine: my ideal mate would
-prefer Boston Legal to Sex and the City
-appreciate Timberlake and Timbaland
-wear a short skirt and a long jacket
-be more likely to be reading Naomi Wolf than Naomi Cambell or Virginia Wolf
-never use LOL in actual conversation and text sparingly
-be more likely to wear knee high leather boots than uggs
