Before...when I first tried this. I can say with almost 100% certainty that I did not give this its just opportunity nor was I entirely sure of what i wanted. That's changed. I've grown a lot and have a pretty good idea of what I am and am not looking for in a girl or relationship. Does that make me very picky... sure! But, shouldn't we ALL be picky when it comes to who we want to be in a committed relationship with? With that being said.. I've talked to a decent amount of girls on here who aren't entirely over their ex or "are just seeing what's out there". If that is the case, chances are you shouldn't be on a dating site. Haha just trying to weed through the B.S. is all
Instead of giving you the same generic answers and attributes that I'm sure you're reading on EVERYONE'S page (i.e. job, hobbies/things I like to do for fun, etc etc), I'll dive into it instead. I'm someone who's very passionate, almost to a fault sometimes. When dating, I truly admire someone who can communicate well, not play games or is transparent about what they're feeling/needing. I show that I care if various ways, and have no problem discussing problems in regards to dating...if you do, then this will not work out. I'm very ambitious in what I want to do in life, and really admire a woman who is the same and is looking to better her life. I will always point out the elephant in the room and do not like to be a part of games. I'm learning to really hear and listen to a woman and her issues, versus just giving my opinion all the time. Yes, it's a work in progress, but I am making a conscious effort to be better at it.
Just from experience, I know what will and won't work for me. First off, as I stated before, I like communication and if you are someone who internalizes your problems/issues or "beat around the bush" and aren't straight forward, I'm sorry but it won't work out. Secondly, if you have a child I don't think this would be the best fit. I respect the HELL out of a single mother and what you have to go through. But, just know from past experience(s) that, for me, it probably will not work out. Lastly, I most likely may not be able to date a girl who lives at home or who is attached to her family by the hip. Family is most important in life, however you define family. But, someone who is constantly dependent on her family for everything or needs to be talking to her parents multiple times a day, when we are all adults and should be living our own lives, won't work :/
I figure since women on here, more so then the guys, are getting bombarded with messages/profiles to check out, that's it's good to be upfront from the get go and not waste anyone's time.
