And please, right off the bat.......
My "self-summary" was not written to please anyone who was not meant to be pleased by it..... nor it was written to sugar any kind of pill(s).
It was written to (potentially) connect me with someone who thinks / acts / behaves / views life and the world in a similar way so we can make friends.
Most will read just few lines and quirt …. and that is fine..... pleasing the masses means selling yourself short.
A small minority (I would expect) will read through it all.
A smaller minority (unquestionably) will reply.... again, that is fine too, as finding compatible people when the criteria is outside the mainstream, is kind of difficult.
(And) to make things even more difficult, even if all above is met, by the time one adds the need for physical attraction and finding commonalities for all kinds of preferences (public or private), AND you bring up the three “big ones” (religion, politics and sex) then it really does make a lot of sense why is so difficult for someone to find and pair with the “right one”.
Best of luck to all, even to the ones who we will never see things eye to eye.
So here we go:
We ALL live on a thin crust of dirt, floating on top of burning lava, traveling thru space at incredible speeds to a destination we did not choose.
All major choices about us have been made on our behalf by someone else before we were even born, things such as our gender, what parents we were born to, who our relatives would be and where on this world we would see the sun for the first and last time.
We ALL have not a clue who will be alive tomorrow.
I think, what defines any one of us humans is not if one has a townhouse or not, nor if one has skied on the alps.
What we are defined by is a lot bigger than if one is "fashionista" and /or "foodie".
PS for the newbies......
Relations work ONLY when there is emotional connection, physical attraction and willingness to compromise.
Diplomas, rock climbing or participating in African safaris do not help any; (because) if those things did, then why is it that so many educated, world traveled, athletic, multi linguist, independent, and “I have a happy life” type of women and men (most of whom are divorced once or twice already) are in here looking for love?
The funny thing is, most people still promote the same “credentials” to find love with, the very same “credentials” that did not help them the first (or second) time around to begin with.
Hm .... Doing the same thing and expecting different results …
Isn't that the definition of insanity?
You do the math.
