Some musings before the nitty gritty, if you will:
*I cannot wait until the day I last log onto OKC. Somebody, please get me off of here!
*Whatever happened to chivalry? Why must it be so-far dead in our current society that I don't even recall what it felt or look like?
*Why do men really log onto online dating? Is it to find the one or to continually add to their meat collection?
*After being so patient and trying so hard after so many years, is it time for a hiatus from all these online apps?
PRECURSOR TO BELOW: Ok ok so I have reread my "Self-summary" below several times and I've noticed that I come across as sort of arrogant or cocky. I must clarify that this is so NOT the case. I think it's a combination of trying to "summarize" yourself in few words and also the way the questions are designed. So, this is my lil' precursor or sort of "Caution: We're Hot!" to convey that I really am not arrogant in any way. Just fun loving and spontaneous ;-). Ok, read on...
I am easy-going, spontaneous, mature, and passionate, and I want to meet a mature man who possesses the same qualities. People always tell me that "there's an ocean [of men] out there" yet I have never seemed to be quite fortunate enough when it comes to love and relationships, ie meeting the right guy, the decent guy who is commitment-minded and family-oriented. But, I am convinced that all it takes is one, THE ONE, quality guy and if he is you, well, I am waiting for you, patiently but awakeningly. I'm not really interested in meeting guys at bars and clubs...I am looking for a real connection and friendship that could develop into something more.
Like most people, I have my hesitations about online dating but, I figure, what is there to lose? Hopefully, if anything, I will meet new people and branch out of my current social circles, something that is always fun. I like going to the beach (more in LA and SD as we don't have real beaches up here), shopping, wine tasting, watching movies on nights in, mixed with going out to fancy dinners and lounges, most recently, wine bars, and hanging out and having solid discussions with my close friends and family. I also am deeply passionate about writing and helping others (I mean it despite how trite it sounds). I've also always been a creative type that thrives by thinking outside the box and am currently working on starting my own company :-).
I am looking for a decent, wholehearted, genuine man who is ready to meet someone who is genuine, mature, wise, hot, and super sexy ;-).
In short, I've definitely been living my life to the fullest extent. Unlike engineering majors or pre-meds (forgive me, guys!) who know exactly what they want and then follow a direct path to get there, albeit with hurdles and obstacles here and now, I fit the humanities stereotype somewhat because my life (and experiences) until now have been sort of a windy path; I've tried everything from masters programs in public policy to medicine to public health and have finally settled on a career choice that I believe suits me to a tee (and yes, I like clothes so I intentionally chose to spell "T" with a "tee" ;-p)
working out and maintaining my physique, OH YEAH! I am a huge fitness fanatic and inspire those around me to bust a muscle and break a sweat! The endorphin rush you get after -- there is no feeling in the world that can compare ;-).
listening to you talk about your bad day, but please don't be a downer. My view is that everyone is stressed enough and has enough shit going on in their own life, so what's the point of being a downer? Just be happy and put on a nice smile, even if you don't feel like it. It will do you more good than harm. Trust me.
Concocting delicious outfits for every occasion and then wearing them to a tee :-p

Also, you must be looking for a LTR.
