Alright folks: here it is. My new profile. The one that’s gonna send all the boys… well, to be honest, it will probably send them running in the opposite direction but life’s a gamble, especially when you’re gambling for a GREAT DATE to top all other GREAT DATES on Match.com.
And so, without further ado:
Let’s cut straight to the chase, shall we? As a writer (and former relationship columnist), I’ve been on 49 dates since last August. If you think this is a bit abnormal, you’re right: it is. I have nothing to say for myself except that I’m quirky: I’m just as happy in hiking boots as I am in high heels. I did my graduate work in anthropology and I find people (men in particular) endlessly fascinating.
So, here’s where you come in. After 49 dates, I’m feeling a bit jaded. I’ve been wined and dined and subsequently disappointed in some of Philadelphia’s finest establishments. It’s not that I’m a snob—I know nothing about wine except that I like Trader Joe’s Two Buck Chuck—but I’m looking for something special for my 50th date.
As far as you’re concerned, I’m looking for confidence, genuine spontaneity, compassion, sarcasm, wit and manners (all with the requisite “bad boy” edge, of course). Bonus points if you like to travel, if you lean slightly left of center and if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
One caveat: I do write a blog about dating but only though a rather complicated process of pseudonyms and self-deprecating humor so your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to propose a first date that will blow my previous 49 dates out of the water.
And now, since today’s post was a bit of a cop out, I have another one for ya. Click here and enjoy!
