I’m personally not interested in how often you do/don’t frequent the gym. Should someone have a little something to grab onto – fine by me. I do believe in taking care of yourself is important but don’t believe it has to be an unrealistic expectation that society has painted for us. Also, if you have a bunch of shirtless pictures on your profile I likely won’t respond or message you. There are other apps that cater more to the shallow crowd.
Something needs to be said about being more old fashioned and monogamy. These are 2 important key factors to me. I do believe in waiting to have sex until you share an emotional connection and not just a physical one. I’m close minded to the idea of open relationships or this modern idea that it is ok to sleep with other people when you’re in “love” with someone. Honestly…I think it’s just a cop-out to go sleep around.
Taking dating back to the basics is where my heart is. I’m not interested in you having a college education, your personal financials, employment status, etc… No, I am not saying none of those things don’t matter – having your shit together is absolutely important and attractive. I’m simply saying I will not be quick to judge anyone, remain open minded, and look past some things most people now-a-days hold up on a pedestal.
I’m interested in someone who is approachable, well presented, kind and easy to talk to - there are no games, continuous drama or over analyzation. Being vulnerable and opening yourself up to allow someone in is where it is at. I feel there is a huge cloud of unapproachability in the gay community,
unrealistic expectations, and people who complain often about their love life but aren’t willing to change.
There is a theme, in my experience, with a lack of effort in steady communication. I understand everyone is busy these days and have lives. I’m willing to make the time and put forth the effort in getting to know someone. I can’t do this alone and it needs to be a two-way street.
We’re at the end…finally! I will forewarn you I’ve never had a boyfriend. My dating skills may be a little rusty and I have some walls up. I will promise you my heart is always in the right place but I’ll need some time and a little patience. I don’t date anyone just to date. I am genuine in meeting that one who I’m supposed to be with and looking forward to the day it happens.
