I am painfully shy. Especially around guys I am interested in. I imagine it is literally a train wreck for anyone to watch.
Despite the fact that I have absolutely no game, I somehow date a lot. Dating aside though, I take my relationships very seriously.
One time on OKCupid, some dude messaged me and awkwardly told me I have a look about me like I am extremely freaky in bed. He wasn't wrong.
My sense of humor is more crude than any man's and I am a self proclaimed exhibitionist. If you sleep in pajamas, I just don't know about you.
My best friends in the world are my Mother, my housekeeper, and my tattoo artist. Really. I keep to myself more often than not.
I make my own laundry detergent. I just think this adds to my appeal and is absolutely worth bragging about on a dating site.
And I am a pretty good cook. It's the Italian blood in me, I think.
My last date from OKCupid involved a guy taking me out for a really nice seafood dinner and never calling me again. I am a major seafood enthusiast.
I have a secret passion for European Geography. And for The Chive. I also am a firm believer in the Oxford comma. And I read about two books a week on average.
I make a lot of to do lists. Sometimes I cheat and write down tasks I have already completed so that I can scratch them off and motivate myself.
I think the sweetest thing in the world is when a guy will brush the snow off my car for me on a freezing day. Kudos if you write me a cute note or draw me a funny picture. Actions speak louder than words.
Recently I was down and out about relationships and a male friend said this to me: "My point is that somewhere, there is a guy who is just dying to spend as much time as he can with you. And who is going to understand you and support you, mentally and physically. And there is no reason to settle for anyone else in the world besides that guy. He is the one who matters."
I kind of have made that my mantra as far as finding the right person.
More than anything, I want to meet someone who was doing just fine before me but never wants to live without me after meeting me.
