I love that you have time for me. ( i can't stress the importance of this )
geographically i edited my profile zip code because i was getting too much interest from canada. dating canadiens is NOT an option for me. it's a passport/canada issue, not a you are a canadien thing. please don't take it personally.
I live in Everson, WA
I know what i am seeking in a man. I don't know how to articulate all that is of value to me without sounding like i am ordering a pizza with extra mushrooms. I don't expect perfect. I do expect effort and I promise to meet that effort half way. I know that i value and want the good company of man in my life. what that looks like remains to be seen. this is why i am here.
I utilize my online dating profile as a sorting tool. In past relationships I've tried to let certain red flags slide, thinking that being accepting is part of being a good person. truth is - red flags are there for a reason. While my thoughts might seem like I am perhaps very particular. It does not make me unapproachable. It just helps me sort.
Issues that have been a problem before include: men who smoke, men who don't appreciate making and or enjoying various quality foods, men who watch tv or sports, religious men, men who are apathetic or who have nothing going on in their life, men who take - emotionally and or sexually.
I realize this list shares or examples a past of things gone wrong, this does NOT mean that men in my past ruin things for the next man in my life. i really don't focus there. Instead I like to focus on the list of what works, what i love about a man, what attracts me to a man and so on. The positives I look for are way longer than the problem list I've shared.
Please offer your perspective or questions - Inquisitive men are so sexy to me.
and just to be sure --- are details like the above helpful? because quite frankly i really wonder if this okcupid thing is on. if you share in being frustrated in dating. tell me about it
preparing food is meditative for me, foreplay actually, and very very important to my day to day and my expression. foodies are welcome - especially if you don't mind occasionally doing the dishes.
I loathe TV, sports, and fast food. these things are deal breakers for me, as are smokers and those of religious zeal.
kisses. lots and lots of...kisses
my family and friends
( wink )
additionally, i am herpes positive. i prefer not to give herpes 101 lessons. i say it here and upfront because you then get to proceed in communicating with me - informed - rather than get wigged out about it when i tell you in person later. I am allergic to all condoms.
