Grumpy at times too !
You have been warned.
Now my grand entry:
To anyone who sees the glass "half whatever", use a smaller @#!@@!! glass !!!
Then we can leave all the glassware behind and move on.
*********** first, let me just say this: *********
In the beginning was the word .... no.. no.... that goes way back; lets try again.
So .... in the beginning when I first joined OKC (that's better) I had faith on the online dating concept and I was looking for a relationship...... I was also dreaming.
Then came life ….and things in life change..... And then I woke up.
I came to terms with the facts (I did not say I liked them) and changed course.
Now and under the question “what I am looking for” it says “friends”
I have kept all the profile comments I have written posted as they do represent my views and opinions. I also have kept the account active as I visit very frequently to read and interact with whoever willing participant life brings me across whenever I am in here.
********** end of first let me just say this *********
I was in night stand business and I almost went under ..... nobody wanted one night stand .....
Then I started suggesting two night stands, one for either side of the bed and business picked up.
You can go ahead and read now ..... have fun.
A lot of laughter deprived people in here, as most everybody is looking for someone "to make them laugh"
A shortage of clowns I suppose ?....
A clown strike perhaps ?
Then comes the other group:
They ski, they hike, they travel the world, they have great lives, amazing friends, love their jobs, active social lives, never a "typical Friday night" ......
AND YET, they are in OKC looking for a partner ...... hm
Also ..... same as most in here, "I love to be near a body of water" too.
Then lets start with washing the dishes and doing the laundry.
And to all rebels of you out there who list 7 things instead of 6 and brag about how they can not abide by rules, WOW….. Really?
Why don’t you try driving 70 in a 30 mile zone when you know there is a cop there with a radar to show us all how much of a “rebel” you are…..
YEA ….. DO THAT.
BTW......... This section is called "my self-summary".
It means, "one" writes about "oneself" ! ......
How difficult is to understand that?
What "your friends would say about you" .... belongs in the "what my friends would say about me" section and there isn't any .....
EXACTLY !!! !! !
If "jumping in and out of black dresses" was an Olympic sport, many from in here would be up for the gold.
And I understand .... Parents have amazing kids ....
I am my mother's "amazing" son too....
BUT .... am I "amazing" ?
The point being .... "is someone amazing because their mother said so ?"
You have been displaying the same singular picture for a couple of years now ......
Is hard for you to post additional pictures as they can never match with the one you are showing and that is for a very simple reason:
The picture you are displaying is from some time ago (although you are not declaring that anywhere)
One good thing though?
We can all attest now that during the Carter Administration era, you looked VERY VERY good.
I had to start somewhere......
Now, after the 97.315 % rolled their eyes off, could not find the "next" botton fast enough and moved on, lets go back to our regular programming.
Proceed carefully and on your own risk.
Maybe you shouldn't ?
No refunds no exchanges.
Now ........ "my self-summary"
Right off the bat:
I am not looking for a match, I am looking for a fire.
So..... here some excerpts from my 1297.41 page biography:
Not an airhead.
Low key and weathered.
Concerned and considerate.
Quality over quantity seeker.
My up to now life has been a series of events and crossing paths with people that have taken me not necessarily always where I was planning to go, but many times surprisingly elsewhere..... with great lessons to be learned along the way..... painful at times...... enlightening at others.
What I have learned is, relations work ONLY when there is physical attraction, emotional connection and willingness to compromise.
(All In that exact sequence.)
(And) to make things even more difficult, even if all above is met, by the time one adds the need for commonalities, the need for compatible preferences (public or private), AND THEN, (by the time) “the big three” are put on the table (religion, politics and sex), it really does make a lot of sense why is so difficult for someone to find and pair with the “right one”.
So, because of all that, I am here to (potentially) connect with someone who thinks / acts / behaves / views life and the world in a similar way so we can make friends.
But if a woman was to walk in my life and shake my emotional world (and that does not exclude bisexual women) then I would want it to be the "mad love" type …… the kind that makes one to hitch penniless across a continent to go find her….. Where the world starts and ends in each other’s eyes.
The "version" of love I am talking about starts with crossing eyes from across a room and feeling a tingle …… is not the "version" that starts with bank account (or education degree) comparison, nor it has anything to do with who has how many stamps on their passport…..
and .... for all the multilinguists of you out there, who shove their “I am well traveled and speak five languages” at their first or second line of their profile, (like if that was a qualifying factor of a great partner), being able to communicate with people who speak different languages comes handy when one is traveling the world, but at home one does not need to be able to speak five different languages in order to hold someone's hand and say “I love you”.
What else I’ve learned is, formal education and degrees do not mean much if they are not backed by someone's solid character, humbleness and humility……. Because, diplomas hanging on walls have never comforted a partner when lonely, sick or in pain.
(And)...... I would totally understand and excuse the younger ones in their 20’s for not having gotten it yet and confusing hormones with love.
But….. I would expect the older ones to know …..
Finance based choices, (same as hormone base choices OR any other non-emotions based choices), is not love……. is an arrangement.
I guess, too may of us have gotten too comfortable.
So…. To conclude, love is about emotions, not about laundry lists of demands….. When is love, most things are negotiable.
Safe travels to all of you out there.
