I just find, unless your some kind of Shakespearean writer it is very hard to get a girls attention by emailing them on these dating sites. Maybe I am wrong, but it just seems most women's expectations of getting some kind of email from a guy that will "blow them away" is very unrealistic. Unless the guy writing to the girl is a scammer, they always seem to know just the right thing to say. You might be amazed at how many women's profile say something about how they will not respond to any emails from guys who just say, "Hi." (Almost all the women that have contacted me first almost always just say, "hi" which I find is a very adequate conversation starter.) I find that interesting and telling on the expectations of some women on these dating sites. Yes, I am very frustrated...can you tell?
Successful self-employed business/website owner and homeowner with no kids, no ex's, and no complications.
I'm a very independent man who is used to being on my own. I march to the beat of my own drum and am not one who follows the crowd. Although I am reserved, I tend to take control during a crisis and people seem to listen and follow my lead when that happens. I do like to have a beer once in a while but I don't go to parties very often, I don't do shots and you probably won't ever see me drunk. I am pretty conservative in politics and life, but I do try to respect other peoples opinions and beliefs. I say what I mean and mean what I say.
I hope I not as serious and boring as how all of that sounds. I do have a different sense of humor that is a little dry. I do get in trouble sometimes when I try to kid around with people and they don't realize I am kidding.
