If you don't want to be respected, appreciated, liked, and eventually cherished, our you don't like common courtesy, or you don't like being listened to, I'm not interested.
Respect, friendship, and love are things of the mind, the heart, the gut, and the soul. I couldn't care less about your boob size unless they're causing you obvious back pain, I'm concerned, and I'm trying to find out what might help. I don't much read T-shirts, either. The swivel joint at the base of my neck seems to be broken.
If you're not willing to share the kitchen with me, or you expect me to wear shoes in the kitchen when you don't, I'm not for you. I'm an early riser. I like coffee to be served in bed every so often, so plan on me bringing that to you. Unless you prefer tea. If you're not awake enough yet to smile, that's fine. If you don't appreciate small gestures once in a while, I'm not interested.
Those men who learn at all tend to repeat what works when it comes to getting sex. What's always worked for me is listening and respecting and caring about someone; being patient, decent, supportive and building a relationship of trust. I'll cheerfully keep that up for years. If a one night stand appeals to you, I'm not interested.
If you aren't ready to be honest with yourself, or you don't want me to be honest with you, run. Honesty can be a lot harder than lying, but it's the only way I work and the only way I want the people around me to work. If you prefer misdirection, lies, double dealing, two-timing, or other forms of unreality, I'm not interested.
If you don't have any baggage, congratulations! You're probably under 25 and still single, and you should enjoy it while it lasts. Look me up when we have something in common to talk about. For those of you who have discovered that life throws curve balls, I stand on my own, and you need to too. If you don't want somebody who helps you stand on your own, I'm not interested.
My doctorate isn't a big deal to me, but it isn't mail-order either. I actually am interested in your brains and what you have to say. If that's not your thing, well... I'm sure you've got the idea by now.
OK. I'm either a troll (I actually did live on "Seven Bridges Road" once), or I'm a decent human being who may or may not be for you. You're welcome to email or message, but I promise you can't really figure out which without meeting me. I can suggest a place, but maybe it's better if you pick a place where you'll feel safe and comfortable.
But here's the deal: we'll have coffee, or a glass of wine, or a meal. Or maybe a hike. We'll talk some. And then I'll walk you back to your car, or your bike, or your means of transportation, or drive you to your doorstep, and say good night. If we hit it off wildly, feel free to give me a hug. Or not. If I follow up and you're not interested, just say so politely. I'll do the same.
It might not be me, but if you're not really willing to go out and meet people at some point, back up, go over to "Settings", and click "Cancel my Account". Spend the money on something that will make you happy, instead.
Oh. And if you're one of the incredibly rude men who has been hassling women here, I wouldn't want to date you either.
