I know I'm not perfect. I think I'm so smart when I figure something out, and then I totally overlook another thing that's just as important. It'd be nice if I didn't make mistakes. But I'll own up to them, and address them as soon as I can. I don't want my mistakes to define me.
A wiser teacher once told me: "Don't go looking for the woman you want, become the man you want to become." I'll admit I'm not quite there yet. But I'm working on it.
I can't help but want to find my partner. I want to hang out with her, casually and comfortably. I want to share thoughts, and share space, and try things we can laugh about later. I want my days to feel long in anticipation of her. I want to live a better life with her.
My goal is wisdom. I don't mind being an outsider in pursuit of learning. Even though I'm playfully energized by people, I often withdraw to be serious and contemplative.
I'm seeking a partner with this computer-assisted-writing-exercise.
I act like my profile. Thoughtful, sometimes verbose, pretty confident, eager to learn. Consistent, but a little unconventional.
I'd love to trade what-music-we've-been-listening-to-recently, and watch a-movie/show-that-you-would-see-again.
I'd love to learn to cook something new, though not as much as I will love eating it! Especially if there is Love in it, that's my favorite ingredient.
I think about online dating. There's bias toward "compatibility", which I know is more an-achievement-of-love rather than a-precondition-to-it. And we can't recreate childhood-imprinted feelings-of-love, because technology has changed so much of reality. And the weight of choices, provided by tools like OKC, pull us away from commitment. And to even meet, we need synchronize windows of singleness, in busy lives. It's a tricky puzzle to solve, and I really want to solve it.
I try to be very open+honest with myself, and with others. I'm filtering myself for brevity more than fear-of-rejection, because your time is valuable to me. Please ask about my story, I'd like to ask about yours too!
... you recognize your own powerful role in your own happiness and success, and try to make good decisions for your future's sake.
... you have an opinion about my profile picture being tilted 90 degrees.
... you also over-intellectualize things (often thinking instead of doing), and want to practice being more impulsive/communicative/present-with-people, possibly with someone like me.
... you want a candid discussion with a serious monogamous partner.
... you accept that computers and the internet could help you find a romantic partner, and you're willing to test a match out, starting with a message.
... you are also hoping to delightfully-distract someone.
