DISCLAIMER - updated 8/22/13 - If you contact me and cannot indicate that you have read (any of) this profile (I know it's long, I'm not an unreasonable woman =), I likely won't respond. I am interested in meeting MEN who actually want to meet ME. It is depressing that I even need to say that, but I mention my name twice in this profile and guys still email me calling me Abbey-google is your friend.
Greetings my fellow earthlings, ummm brave date seekers. Je m'appelle Stacey. Et vous? (the extent of my French other than food words)
7/30/13 -- I recently had a discussion with my boss about relationships and he was telling me to date within my culture so I've been giving that some thought. I've come to realize that I should be dating within the geek culture. I am a comic book geek myself, not a gamer, though I do like strategy games, but when I date men who are not into things like Star Wars, ZOMBIES!, GoT, comic books, other geek stuff, whatever, we tend to have little in common. So, where are all my geeks at?! Come hither!!
I love meeting new people but dating can bring out the bizarre in all of us, but sometimes bizarre can be fun! I like party games a lot (Taboo, Name 5, Apples to Apples, Pictionary, Cranium, Cards Against Humanity, I own a lot of party games). Has anyone ever heard of Robo Rally though? I am trying to find more people interested in playing this game. Who's with me? I even carry this game around in my trunk cause you never know!
I am originally from the DC area - a Maryland suburb to be exact - but have been in FL since 2003. My whole family now lives in FL and we are pretty close. I value closeness with one's family and find I relate better to people that also share this characteristic.
I am gainfully employed, I'm a homeowner who is very crafty at renovations, and I own two cars because I'm not quite ready to get rid of my high mileage sports car just yet. I have two cats and a group of friends that I love to do random and planned things with. We all like deals and discounts - we're not cheap but saving money is being responsible right? Right??
Now onto some fun lists!
I like (in no particular order):
-billiards (8 ball mostly, trying to reclaim the title of sidepocket Stacey!)
-making beaded jewelry
-tennis (yeah, i suck but it's still fun)
-cars (I own two)
-getting my hands dirty
-meeting new people
-woodworking (i suck at using these right now but i have a scroll saw and a mini-lathe)
-trying new things
-cooking (i'm pretty spectacular in the kitchen)
-all kinds of (ethnic) food -- mmm sriracha!
I don't like:
-sushi (sorry I know it's the new chicken
but not a fan of roe or seaweed)
-people that drive the speed limit in the left lane (not cool!)
-religion that thinks it can tell me I am sinful or amoral/immoral
-when people re-state the obvious in online forums
-most politically conservative ideology (lack of consistency in beliefs is the issue here)
-read a lot -- magazines, newspapers, fiction, non-fiction
-like to talk about anything and everything
-like to have good conversations (serious, goofy, funny, political, religious, sarcastic, you name it I'll have it)
-like to write things (and then expand in parentheses)
Politics and religion are sticklers for me – I am very liberal and non-religious (though I was raised Jewish and still feel somewhat of a connection to it). I identify as atheist. I'm at a point in my life where I have no interest in dating someone who is either religious (i mean, unless they're a jew i guess since that i can relate to) or politically conservative, specifically socially conservative. If you are spiritual and believe in god, that really is ok, though not preferable, because i understand the need some have to believe, but if you subscribe to organized religion, that is no bueno with me.
If you are against equality for LGBT folk, a racist, a bigot, don’t respect a woman’s right to choose, or lack consistency in your beliefs, please move on.
I find creativity, intelligence and humor very sexually attractive features. I also enjoy witty repartee so if all you can talk about is sports or cars (and mind you, i like cars, i own 2)...zzzz.
I like to think I am true to myself and my beliefs. I am looking for someone that knows who they are and where they are going. Please have some substance, goals, desires, ideas to share, personal philosophy, whatever. In short, please be real.
I am inquisitive, sapiosexual, and goofy.
Though I am very verbose (and even long winded =) in this profile, I recall numerous instances throughout my lifetime where I have dated men who exclaimed after our first make out session, something along the lines of, well, you are so full of energy and kind of silly and goofy a lot of the time, I just wasn't expecting all that passion. Believe it. Bad kissing is for suckers, and not the good kind.
