Welcome to online dating! Time to create your profile…
First, a little about you:
Um. Hello. I’m a writer…which sounds unemployed... I work as a technical writer, and I write short stories and screenplays do creative writing in my free time. I’m a bookworm, I love authors like Hemingway, Kerouac, Tolstoy… I also read a lot.
My favorite types of music are jazz and swing. I also love classical and opera… yeah, that’s gonna go over well.
I’m a pretty good cook, and I love to try out new recipes but most of the time I just wing it, but it usually works out… usually.
I love enjoy really enjoy traveling. I used to tour with a drum and bugle corps… basically a semi-pro marching band, well, sort of like a marching band, but not exactly… I’ve been on many road trips. In the next year or two I’m planning on a trip to the International Book Festival in Scotland.
God, what else? What doesn’t make me seem crazy? I don’t know… Honestly, I’m here because at the moment I’m out of other options and admitting I’ve never been in a relationship is embarrassing at my age.
I like dogs.
Now, a little about your match:
How should I know? I thought there was supposed to be an algorithm for that… I guess I’m looking for someone who is not a felon, bathes regularly, honest, kind, ambitious driven goal-oriented, literate, intellectual… intellectual, and has similar interests.
…or you know, someone who has interests, not just a list of generic values and an ‘I’m up for anything.’ Makes you sound like you’ve got about as much personality as a brick.
Also, someone who can write a decent message to introduce themselves. We’ve never met, don’t send a text-ish “whats up?” or a creepy “hey, gorgeous, can I spoil you?” No. No, you may not.
Not looking for anything serious right away. Please don’t feign affection until you’ve actually met me. This is not a Disney film, we’re just acquaintances.
God, this is awful. I should just delete the whole thing.
Hope to hear from you soon!
