Previously, I was looking for someone to be my sidekick / companion / partner / wife / etc... but okcupid has left me a tad disenfranchised with that goal, which is particularly sad since I'm a successful, smart, fun, down-to-earth, trustworthy, caring person, even if I do tend to take my shirt off for pictures too often. Let's get real, girls don't want that. They want either passion or a Disney plot or both, and they respond to profiles of men portraying a projection of what the man wants to be, instead of what the man actually is. (I say this half seriously... It's always a bad idea to generalize.) Such is life, but here's hoping honesty is the answer!
I'm changing it up: I want something light and fun and playful and filled with adventures that involves lots of flirting and very little discussions about "us," preferably with someone comparable to me, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
I am not giving up on finding that special person. I am relieving myself of thinking about the distant future to allow myself to have some fun, and if it happens, it happens.
