I'm an old school chick with an old school soul.
I give very few fucks about very few things while worrying about it all.
I'm outspoken and real. There aren't enough people who are willing to speak their minds and be who they are in the world.
I can be harsh and independent or saccharine and needy. That's what you get when you date a chick with mental illness. Borderline personality disorder, bipolar, intermittent explosive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder... Medication isn't a cure all, but it sure does help. I'm not looking for guys who can't handle me at my worst.
I go out and do things. I enjoy going out and doing things. I hate participating in sporty things because I'm terrible at them but I enjoy watching them. I hate sitting around at home ALL the time, but I love sitting around at home SOME of the time.
I enjoy linguistics and words. I'm also a big fan of proper grammar. Use it or I won't respond. It doesn't take that much effort to add the y and o before the u, or the a before and the e after r.
I like to think I'm smarter than the average person. I need someone who can not only keep up with me mentally but who can challenge me as well. I need an intellectual equal.
If you have a picture of you and your dog on your profile, you automatically get a shitload of bonus points, even if I don't like you. I love dogs. I'm probably going to be a crazy dog lady when I get older, but with big dogs, not ankle biters.
Here's what I enjoy in guys, in bullet point format.
* Skinny to muscular to solid to husky
* Older than me (30+ preference)
* Likes fat ladies
* Hates players AND the game
* Rolled up shirtsleeves
* Kind eyes
* Kind heart
* Seriousness balanced with humor
Here's what I don't care for in guys, in bullet point format.
* "Gangsta" tendencies
* Sci-fi/video game geeks/nerds/whatever (bad past experience)
* Game players
* Constant drinking/partying
Hipster tendencies used to be on this list, but I've found that I'm becoming more and more attracted to the "fancy" hipsters. You know, the guys who make an effort to dress nicely, wear suits, wear vests with the sleeves of their dress shirts rolled up (OMG, THE BEST), etc. I like it.
At risk of sounding racist, because people don't ever realize there's a difference between racism and preference, I strongly prefer to date white guys. I'm cool with guys and gals from all walks of life, but I'm significantly more attracted, romantically, to white guys.
HOWEVER, if you don't think you meet the suggestions, go ahead and send me an interesting message anyways. If it's interesting enough, I'll respond. Basically, I just want to talk to people and make friends and hang out and have shenanigans.
I'm not sure what I'm looking for any more. Let's just see where things go.
While I'm in Michigan now, I don't have any desire to stay here for the rest of my life. It doesn't feel like home any more.
