Open and honest communication is where I start. While I fully suspect, especially via services like this, that those two things are vanishing commodities, I still have a sort of faith that will (eventually) prove me wrong. And I want to be wrong about this. After perusing through profiles, looking for someone that I might "click" with, I've discovered that most people on here either 1, don't like me, 2, are frightened by my image, and/or 3, simply want something that they may never find within the online realm, supposedly from me. Yet I'm still here...just waiting for her to, as I've said for awhile, "arrive".
No, I'm not a chronic dating-type, emailing everyone I see with hopes of starting something. I'm actually quite selective; I know what works for me, as well as who I work well for. Being in a position professionally to meet a lot of people in a relatively short amount of time has clued me into what I personally prefer in a potential mate. With most profiles condemning those who've created the "online stereotype" (read: guys with shirtless pics, terrible comments/emails, etc.), I'm trying to persevere, and act properly. Whether you, dear Reader, accept this or not, I'm still here and doing my thing; I'm just trying to weed through the conventional bullshit, and see if "you" are out there.
I'm particular with how you carry yourself via photo(s), and how you type whatever you type (yes, it's true, proper grammar goes a long way with me...I'd like to think any self-respecting male thinks the same, but I'm quite sure I'm wrong). Most of what I've received has been atrocious, and they could benefit from continued learning/adult literacy classes. Just saying...
I'm not looking for anything temporary...no one-nighters here. Just the chance to meet someone worth a damn, that takes pride in herself, what she does, who she befriends...you know, the "should be" regular stuff.
Now, the nuts and bolts:
I am a dad to a super cool girl, who lives with her mom out of town. I'm also a musician, which turns off a lot of people (thank you, stereotype). I'm cool with my life….I've got my job, car, place, and the ability to avoid drama. I try to roll with the ups and downs as gracefully as I can, usually learning something new along the way.
What I'm saying is that you, dear Reader, have found me one way or another. Yes, I have my quirks. I consider them character-building. I have my various idiosyncrasies...I call them awesome. I have a past, but we all do. I'm looking to get past all of that, and am hoping for someone to share it with, as she shares her's with me.
I'm waiting for "you" to arrive.
If you can honestly say that you carry yourself well, with few/no hesitation(s), message me and let me know you're out there. Location doesn't matter. I'm pretty damn confident that I've not found you yet. But I will...however I have to. I will find you...unless you find me first. Another way to put this is:
If I haven't already done so with you, make sure your sack of bricks hits me square in the face. After all this cyber meat market crap, I'll need a good lashing. Take that last comment as you will.
Jesus...this profile is long. Who needs a drink?
