Alright, I'll put this front and center so there's no surprises. I had a stroke a few years back, so I can't use my left side. I can't stress enough how important it is to be that you're aware I've got a slight disability. "When life throws a punch, son, you've got to take it on the chin."
I told you that so I can tell you this: Now, I don't want to let that define who I am, but I spent years paying off the ensuing hospital bills that arose from all that. That's all paid off now, with interest. Forgive me, but I don't have photos of me doing yoga on cliffs or beaches in exotic places because I had to live below my means during my early thirties to take care of my debts. Life hasn't been fun for quite a while. I've got a really good job now, though, that I'm good at. I'm debt free and I want to start living a semi-normal life again. I get to take vacations again, I can afford nice clothes, a better car.
I haven't dated a lot in my time, having a stroke kind of destroyed my self confidence. I'm genuinely terrible at all this and I'm going to fuck it up, but I finally want to try. I want to find someone that feels "fuck yes" about me and that I feel "fuck yes" about, as described in this article. Honestly, I don't know if that's even feasible as an ugly, geeky guy who had a stroke, but I guess I'd like to find out.
