...you are capable of stringing together coherent sentences
spelling, and good verbal/written communication skills are VERY
important to me. I don't begrudge you a few typos or misspellings,
especially if you seem intelligent otherwise, but text speak is
ridiculous. If you don't care any more than that about what you
say, then neither do I.
...you can keep up your end of the conversation, and don't expect
me to do it FOR you. Why message someone if you have nothing to
...you've read--and UNDERSTOOD--my ENTIRE profile and think we may
have some common interests. I DO take match percentage into
account, and I definitely read your questions. That's what they're
My good friend ElissaRene
recently saw the term
somewhere and shared it with me, because she thought it was neat. I
agree. Here's a link: http://sapiosexual.com
/ . So, being
intelligent, witty, and articulate (this doesn't mean you need to
have an advanced degree or be a walking encyclopedia) counts very
heavily in your favor, so long as you don't try too hard or take
yourself too seriously. Taking one's self too seriously is a big
turn-off, for me.
ALSO: my being married, and simply being female and on the
internet, does NOT mean I'm easy. I'm not looking for just a little
"sex on the side", NOR do I have lower expectations for behavior
and treatment than if I were single. If anything, they may be
higher, since I have some pretty great people to compare it to, and
I have very little time (or patience) for bullshit. That bullshit
includes helping others cheat. I won't do it, so don't even ask me.
The aforementioned bullshit ALSO includes talking about your penis,
or what you'd like to do with it. Keep your sexual fantasies and
wishes to yourself unless I ask about them. If you wouldn't say it
to a woman you are just meeting for the first time, in person, in a
public place, do NOT say it to me uninvited. No exceptions.
Another thing you should keep to yourself unless I ask is your
phone number. I do not text or call strangers, and I don't want
anyone I don't know having my phone number so they can pester me
night and day. No exceptions.
