First things first: My experience here - (this is my experience. I am NOT generalizing about women) - is that some women I write to do not have the common courtesy to reply - even if they are totally uninterested - with a Thanks but no thanks. Hmmmmmm.....and I'm expected to believe that this is the age of Spiritual Matriarchy?They don't show basic respect to me, it appears to be reverse gender-ism with them. So, please, pay attention.
Second, I will say I am saddened by online dating, and what a drag it is to navigate profiles, hidden unstated needs/preferences/deal breakers. I just went out with a woman, we liked each other, but due to a tiny "dating style" difference that emerged right before the second date, mind you, the second date, she backed out.
I am intelligent, honest, compassionate, very passionate, and a Beautiful Mess. I am S. Crow's favorite mistake, and I am what I yam, and I'm Popeye the sailor man.
It is so curious how we each in our own evolution desire this intimacy, and yet there are so many stepping stones and detours in time. Would I were the union of Christ and Sophia (those who know, know), but then again, I also wish it would rain cats and canvases, and that the current emperor of America would be sent off to Pluto, where the ice of 45's heart can meet his own icy environment!
I love humor of most kinds, eccentric, quirky and noir is ALL good. Favorite directors: Charles Kaufman, Tim Burton and David Lynch. Favorite comedians: Maria Bamford, Louie C. K. Favorite local musician: Lafayette Gilchrist and the New Volcanoes. Favorite news: Democracy Now, WPFW.
