My self-summary
Hmmm, so I’ve been sitting on this for over a year now and I think it’s time for a revision. Generally, I want the best for everyone and I enjoy spending time with people with the same attitude. This is the principle that I want and by which I try to live. If you can’t celebrate the success and happiness of those around you, you’ll never be a happy person, and you’ll make me unhappy as a result. I also believe that happiness is a choice we make every day. Whatever my lot and when the sea billows, it is important that I can say it is well with my soul. A peaceful attitude and heart is something that I’m looking for in a potential match. Of course, that’s not to say we don’t all have our days.
A little more specifically, I’m a lawyer at King and Spalding, doing the grunt work of a young attorney, trying to get a footing on my career. Yes, that means I can work long hours, but if you’re worth it, I’ll have no trouble making time for you. I promise. I wouldn’t consider myself a workaholic, but I have dreams that require a lot of work to achieve. Most things worth doing require work and a good work ethic is important to me in a match.
I try to exercise a few times a week, enjoy hanging out with friends, getting a beer, etc., etc. I’m sure you’ve heard all of this before. I’m pretty much up for whatever, except jumping out of planes. I like life way too much to willingly jump out of a perfectly good plane. Now, if you’d like to take flying lessons, I’ve always wanted to do that. Travel is always fun, but wouldn’t it be cool to fly yourself wherever you wanted to go?
As far as attraction, I’ve been attracted to blondes, brunettes, blue eyes, brown eyes, girls with tattoos, girls without tattoos (more often), but for me it’s about a spark of interest, not any one thing. I’m also looking for effort. My body isn’t perfect (not bad, but not perfect) and I try to stay in shape. If I’m going to put in the effort, I want a girl that will do the same.
I’m interested in intelligence more than most. I’m not necessarily looking for a girl with the same level of education as me, but I need a girl that can hold her own. I’ve tried in the past and it just doesn’t work for me otherwise. This will probably lose me a few potential dates, but I don’t really consider an associates a real degree. Bachelor’s or bust.
I can be romantic, but don’t expect high romance on our first outing. Chemistry, hopefully, but you’re not getting a dozen roses on our first date. I don’t know you and you don’t know me, regardless of faceless messages we’ve sent over the static. I’m looking for something real. Something substantial. Infatuation is a fleeting I would like to avoid for both of our sakes.
Finally, I would like to say that I’m not perfect. I can be thoughtless, callous and an all-around jerk at times. That being said, thoughtless does not mean careless, callous does not mean cold, and all-around jerk does not mean “you look ugly in those jeans.” It simply means that, at some point or another, I will let you down, and I’ll go ahead and apologize in advance for that. But let’s not kid ourselves, you’re not perfect either (and yes, I stole that from Wedding Crashers ;)
