I wonder if these guys on the dating sites actually take the time to "check out" someone they are interested in. Do they check other profiles, do they go at all beyond just their own site? I only ask because if anyone truly wanted to know me - Angels and demons - they could easily find it. Some are harder to find than others - but I'm pretty out there. I think that eHarmony has it right for the most part - but even at that place, no one is compatible with me; which is fine since I like variety anyway.
The next "candidate" involved Body mostly with a tug of the Soul: 28, Texan, "can't tell" photo, Mature Young man seeking Older Woman. Naturally, I went "ew" at first - thinking that it was the typical story. But then he said this, " love older women, because I find they have more to offer and they tend to be more in touch with their minds and their bodies."
I had to give him kudos for using the "minds" as well as the bodies. And then he added: "I have a thing for quieter types." SO NOT ME. And then the image of him in a D/s relationship. Gonna go with the intuition on this one, even though a part of me is curious, and devious enough, to want to bait him. (I love that feeling!)
Oh, gees, Eddie Izzard is on BBC - be back later!
Ok, let's continue: 53 from Virginia (a bit old), Gemini (ugh), Graduate degree, computer architect (smart and analytical) 6'4" (UGH!)
Favorite comedian is Robin Williams (good pick) drives a Jag (sexy car).
Sounds like a fairly compatible man. But most of it seems somehow superficial to me - which can be important as well - I guess I can't quite put a label on what my intuition is "itching" about this guy. We'll see.
(Hey - this could be kinda like psychic reading practice. I should keep track of how much I get right.)
And then we come to this one: 6'4" Cancer Graduate degree, Engineer with hair from New York:
I'm an engineer and I enjoy my work very much, although it is very analytical and non-interactive. Hence, I'm a bit on the shy side, but I really do like to get to know people once I'm past that awkward introduction stage. To me, honesty, integrity, and trust are basic prerequisites for a good relationship, but inevitable struggles will always test the relationship. These tests challenge us to grow emotionally, spiritually, and in commitment. I'm looking to find that special person that can share their deepest soulful secrets while supportively embracing my own. I'm pretty much toast at this point...
I'm looking for a tall, attractive, athletic, outgoing woman (2 outta 4 ain't so bad?) that shares enthusiasm for life, people, family, friends, and an active lifestyle. An energetic expert skier would be ideal. (not in my world) I'm attracted to independent, intelligent, adventurous women. (ok) Intelligent conversations that show deep caring for friends, family, and humanity are often more enlightening and interesting than the latest business buzz. (Good line)
I'm looking forward to possible chatting with this guy....
