I love to live an active life and explore. I am very passionate about helping others and I am currently in the process of putting together a fundraiser to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis by climbing Mt. Rainier. The climb is also being dedicated to one of my patients that I have become very close to who loves adventure and mountains although unfortunately his lung function prevents him from chasing his dreams due to the high altitude.
Hi, Alan. Good question. I don 8767 t think it 8767 s a great idea for at least two reasons: first, it remove the mystery from who you are and what you really like to do secondly, you wouldn 8767 t be able to use the same romantic things on the women you meet. No girl wants to be run through a 8775 routine 8776 that has been used before. I would actually recommend being evasive when answering that questions and saying something like: 8775 The most romantic thing I ever did is surprising the woman and not telling her what we will be doing or where we are going. 8776
Grace and Aimee, first of all WHOA, I think you both misundersttod what I was thinking and said. I was in no way suggesting that anyone of us is responsible for another persons abuse. No one should abuse no more than anyone should suffer abuse. As I said it was just a thought, that maybe I needed to be responsible and take myself out of it. By staying in it maybe I was also inflicting myself with abuse. I am sorry if I offended or seemed to suggest we are responsible for someones abuse, quite the contrary. I surely will refrain from making any future comments to avoid any backlashing. I am only trying to work through this just as we all are.
What makes any female dating profile great is the fact that it stands out from the rest of the profiles on any given online dating site. It doesn 8767 t blend in. It 8767 s not generic, neutral and overly politically correct. It doesn 8767 t describe you with overused adjectives such as 8775 intelligent, compassionate, educated, and independent 8776 and it is free of boring statements that say nothing such as 8775 I am as comfortable staying in as staying out. 8776
8775 I don 8767 t like most guys, but I am not interested in most guys and besides perhaps that what makes those few unique individuals that I do connect with all more special. (Great, thought provoking opener that shows a woman 8767 s engaging personality. Myself restless, analytical, and opinionated. I am not offended by a dirty joke and can dish out one of my own. I am independent but far from being a feminist. Sarcasm is a spice of life, so bring it on. (Guys really, really like to hear that). Timeless books and movies that make you wonder for days about whose side you are on put great flavor into many of my evenings. What 8767 s your story? What are you greatest pet-peeves and what makes you weak in your knees from joy and happiness. 8776
You don 8767 t have a problem making fun of other people. In fact, it 8767 s the way you 8767 re most likely to make a joke. Ridicule, teasing, and sarcasm can be aggressive and downright mean, and following up such statements with 8775 just kidding 8776 doesn 8767 t dull the sting. Be careful! This is a tough type of humor for most people to relate to, especially when it 8767 s your go-to method of cracking a joke. Maybe you can dig deep and find a way to be funny that isn 8767 t done at someone else 8767 s expense?
Lately I’ve been really into Paulo Coelho novels. I read The Alchemist when I was in college but I’m excited to find that his other stuff is amazing too. If you have any book recommendations, send them my way. I’m a voracious reader and love talking books. Currently, working on my master’s in education and living downtown, which I love. Live music is one of my other weaknesses. I’ll see just about anyone but lately I’ve been checking out the free Thursday shows at Greyson’s.
When I believed the world was full of assclowns and Mr Unavailables, it was all I was interested in and dated. When I believed that there were a lot of assclowns and Mr Unavailables but that there were plenty of healthy people too, lo and behold, I saw them, met them, and was interested, with the key difference being that I actually believed that I was worthy of being with a decent guy. I don 8767 t mean pretend believe while privately sabotaging it with other beliefs but actually genuinely believing it was possible.
I’ve been traveling throughout South America for the past three years, after working for Americorp teaching English. Getting to know so many other people and cultures has been a truly amazing experience but… I missed home! So now I’m back with more stories to tell and a whole lot of decisions to make about what I want to do next. It’s an exciting time and I’m stoked to soak up more experiences and get to know more people. Plus, I cannot tell you how much I missed a good burger. Delicious!
This difference must be something that plenty of people will find appealing ideally irresistible. If you are struggling to find a difference or market advantage, look at your competitors and talk to your customers, and discover what''s missing and what can be dramatically improved out there. There is always at least one thing, usually more - perhaps you can bundle two or three powerful market advantages together.
I would hate to bore you by telling you how wonderful I am by attaching to my name a bunch of flattering adjectives. I am sure that you have already found this about two hundred times in all the other profiles. I believe that words are cheap, but actions speak much louder, so why bother? So, why not start with a bad stuff I am impulsive and restless at times, I can 8767 t kill a fly, I cried twice like a girl when I watched 8775 Notebook, 8776 I cuss too often, and stay up way too late way too often. There is something about the nighttime that I find magic, if you will, which keeps me up working or hanging out aimlessly. Can you relate? I have little patience for flakes and fake people those who smile while being angry on the inside, as I never know what they keep up their sleeve. How about you? What annoyed you today? And what made you weak in your knees from joy and pleasure?
When giving presentations in these circumstances, avoid giving a hard-selling pitch, unless you are sure that such a style is appropriate. Usually it is not. Aim to inform and educate rather than to sell. In many networking situations a strong selling presentation is regarded as insulting by those present. This is especially so if you are a guest of a group that you would not normally meet regularly.

I grew up in the area and just couldn’t leave what has come to be my favorite place in the world. (My 69-year-old self would have never believed this.) I try to balance family, work, and time for myself and enjoy all three. I’m hoping to meet someone looking for something a bit more serious. Lately my hobbies include weightlifting, and tinkering with music (no, I will not call myself a DJ). If you want to know more, just ask.
This is the first bit about yourself on your dating profile that potential candidates will come across. So make sure that your profile header is witty and attractive. A few examples are “Just like a new job, I offer excellent benefits”, “New girl on the block needs a tour guide” “Any good e-males out there”. You may make it as humorous or philosophical as you want but just be sure that it is clever and catchy.
Make it witty
Stop selling yourself short. Whoever they are that are causing you pain, you can do better. When you start working through the beliefs in your head, you 8767 ll see how much your own internal angst is limiting you. The pain you 8767 re causing yourself there 8767 s another, far less painful route if only you 8767 d start considering your options. It 8767 s better to stretch yourself and get uncomfortable so that you do justice by yourself, rather than staying in a comfort zone where you experience limited love, joy, and happiness.
The 8775 A 8776 profile is not good. You 8767 re really going to start with saying 8775 I don 8767 t like most guys? 8776 Seems way too negative for an opener. I know if I came across a guy 8767 s profile that said 8775 I don 8767 t like most girls, 8776 I would be put off. It 8767 s not well-written, either, and doesn 8767 t make much sense. The others are pretty bad too. First one is boring (but actually the best out of the three in my opinion), second one comes on a little strong and I imagine would scare guys off. My theory on profiles is that you want to put just the basic info and show just a little of your personality and what you 8767 re looking for. It 8767 s nearly impossible to encapsulate who you are in just a paragraph, and in my experience, men don 8767 t really care to read it. A flattering picture is far more important. People, especially men, are shallower than a puddle. But even for men 8767 s profiles, this advice applies. Keep it short and to the point and use a good profile pic. Oh, and AVOID CLICHES at all costs.
I get this perception from family and friends that being alone is not okay. I can 8767 t even tell you how many parties I have gone to where I am asked time after time 8775 why 8776 i am not married yet and 8775 why 8776 I don 8767 t have kids. WELL, maybe because I haven 8767 t found anyone that I wanted to share my DNA or my life with but I grow tired of explaining! It 8767 s feels implied that there is something wrong with me since I am not attached to somone, or either divorced with kids. I get the impression from others they find it odd that I am not 8775 married off 8776 yet, although I am certainly very happy not being married, and very happy not to be divorced either! (as I my many friends have.) But these questions are SO rude, as if I need to explain this at a PARTY. My mom explains this away by saying 8775 well, you are so pretty and have so much to offter, they just wonder why you haven 8767 t been 8775 scooped up 8776 yet. 8776 Okkkkaaayyy.
Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for all the advice here. It was a pleasure to read. A friend of mine has been struggling with his profile, and was convinced that he was the reason he wasn 8767 t getting much interest. I 8767 m never for tricking anyone, but I told him online dating is as much about advertising oneself as advertising a product, you have to be thoughtful with what you choose to put out there and how you represent yourself. We 8767 re working on a profile together now, mostly cause I insisted he let me try to help before closing his down for good.
You should also be continuously open to unplanned networking opportunities , which can arise at any time. Business people are mostly normal human beings just like you. They have social lives, they travel, go to shops, sports events, restaurants, pubs, concerts, etc., and do lots of other things that you do too, quite outside of work. Paths can cross in the most unexpected places. You will find and develop connections in these unplanned situations if you:
But now: Here ye, Here ye Knights in Shining Armor, there is something I must inform you about this profile it is off due to a few things. Did you figure out what that might be? Don 8767 t worry, 8775 Attraction Killer 8776 Red Flag #7 is tough to spot , especially when we 8767 re doing it in our own online dating approach. Take the quiz for instant enlightenment!
