Educated dating uneducated
I also don’t know what life holds for me tomorrow, but I do know that we can only get older and I feel safer to get old with you.
Someone to remember the days with, and to grow with. Everyone is crying out to say how good they are, how cool they are, how fun they are.
When I was 31, I hadn’t thrown out the list, my life wasn’t together, I was dating the wrong person, I needed to date more to understand what I like, I wasn’t able to appreciate the right woman until life kicked my ass, and I was too focused on what I was getting instead of what I was giving.
I’ve been intentionally keeping my head too busy to think with my heart. I need to date more to understand what I do and don’t like. I won’t be able to appreciate you until life has kicked my ass. It’s entirely possible that we did hit it off once, and I left without getting your information; or maybe I did get your number and never called because of any one of the above reasons. Just keep making your life exciting and full, so when we do finally come together, we can bring each other joy, because we are already happy. I could have written the same thing ten years ago, if only I were more self-aware.
It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users.
I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.
I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
“I have been in the ——- area for a few years now and always looking to meet new people. I enjoy meeting new people and going to new places.
Since my life isn’t together, I think you’ll reject me. This letter is a call for humility – to stop blaming the opposite sex for the downfall of your relationships and to take responsibility for the things you can control.First, meet a guy, then decide what you want out of him). I am looking to meet someone in the this area and see what happens! 🙂 (good, funny, statement that shows personality and sense of humor, she should have used more of this kind of words throughout her profile).Relocating for the right person is definitely an option. ” ******************************* This is one great dating profile.It consists a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman’s great personality and sense of humor.It’s eloquently written, it’s concise, straight and to the point!
Then you read this letter by Emily Bracken posted on Medium and reposted on Huff Po. I’m around the corner, down the street, on Facebook, in your office, at our local coffee shop, a complete stranger. In the meantime, which of the things on Emily’s list will you admit to?
