If you consider yourself more of a straight forward, witty, or sarcastic woman then please read "SECTION B".
Of course feel free to read both sections... if you dare!
A million thoughts race through my head. How will I do this? I think of all the things I want to say and the things I shouldn't. I want to be confident but not vain. I want to be strong but not controlling. I want to be sensitive but not weak. I gather all my courage and after all of this all I can say is a simple... "Hello".
There nothing I can tell you here that could possible make your decision for you. I understand that and don't really try as hard as I should. The chances of me randomly contacting anyone are slim. I'd rather let those who are interested in me make the first contact. There is chance I may contact you first… but I doubt it.
The bottom line is that I am happy in my life right now. I am raising my 5 year old son on my own. He makes me laugh everyday. I'm not looking for a new mother for him. He already has one. I am simply looking to share my happiness with new friends. Should something develop further… only time will tell.
If by chance I do contact you, it will be because something has raised my eyebrows. It will always be a shared interest over physical appearance. Compatibility of the basics are more important than anything when it comes to friends or more… something many of us had to learn the hard way. That being said there is something to physical attraction after all that is why we post pics.
There are many interesting people in the world, but we all need that special spark to get us interested in each other.
Embrace your misconceptions for I am not your prince in shining armor. Ready your doubts for I do not want to have sex with you.
I am a person you do not know. These words will only provide you with a glimpse of who I really am. To know me is to understand me. Obviously that cannot be obtained in a few hundred words in a profile. Even as you read my words you may already be attaching your own interpretation to each sentence I have written.
I am not lonely. I am not here to persuade you to date me nor am I a puppy dog whimpering in the store window begging to be taken home. I see every contact here as the beginning of a friendship and nothing more.
As you can tell by now I am not your average guy. I'm not going to whisper sweet nothings into your ears. Any guy can tell you what you want to hear whether it's at a bar or online.
I will tell you what I am thinking, when I am thinking it. Granted I will be tactful in my delivery, but in the end you will get my honest opinion.
Are you looking for true love? I have already found it in the smiles and hugs from my son. I will cherish it for as long at it lasts. Will it last forever? Who knows… but that is the point. Enjoy the moment. Don't worry about tomorrow and don't dwell on the past.
Everyone is looking for happiness. The only problem is that few ever obtain it and more importantly… if you are not happy with yourself then you never will. I am happy with my life. I am simply looking to share my happiness with new friends. Should something develop further… only time will tell… if at all.
Will you see my silence as judgement? Will you see my kindness as weakness? Will you see my confidence as arrogance?
Hmm... I wonder if I sound kinda like a "woman hater"?
Oh and one more thing… maturity comes with life experience, not age. You can be a woman and still act like a girl or visaversa.
Truth hurts doesn't it… tell your friends.
Wow... if you read through both sections then I'm already impressed. Please don't think that this was written in malice. I simply wanted to express myself as honestly as possible.
Food For Thought: The illusion of the "Atom" family (husband and wife with 2.5 children) is a thing of the past. With the divorce rate above 50% we have entered a new era. I like to call the "jumbled puzzle" family. We are pieces of different puzzles trying to fit into each other to make a new wonderful picture. Forever cautious that while the pieces fit... will the end result be better this time. We can only hope.
