My name is Jonathan. I'm not sure why others don't ever just start with that on their profiles. I mean, if we had met for the first time in the real world, our names would have probably been one of the first things we tackled before we got into things like education history, political affiliation, annual income, life ambitions, and all the other stuff we post here on jdate before we just tell people our names. So I'm starting with that, just like I would if we had met in person.... Hello, I'm Jonathan. What's your name? I'm giving this Jdate thing a shot.
I guess I should write something revealing about myself that gives you an idea of what I'm all about, but I'd prefer to do that from across a dinner table than in an essay. Some people will share that sentiment, and others, I'm sure, will prefer an ongoing back and forth dialogue before making the monumental commitment to meet a person and talk to them face to face (that's a little bit of sarcasm if you didn't pick up on it). For that hesitant majority, here's a little bit about me to hopefully make you feel warm and cozy about the idea of getting together... I love life. That really sums it up. And I love the simple things in life~ if it was socially acceptable to drink Manischewitz in social settings, I would. Simple things. When it comes to my love life, I've been known to to act before I think, leading with my heart and my gut. I like to be spontaneous and I'm looking for someone similar. After all, it takes a bit of a leap of faith to jump into meeting someone from a dating website, and I'm ready for that adventure. Are you?
I believe wholeheartedly that life is better when you have someone to share it with. That's why I'm here.
This next part is just plain old honesty... if you don't LOVE dogs, then feel free to overlook me. I have 2 Great Danes that are a huge part of my life, so if a little bit of white dog hair on your new dark blue jeggings bothers you, this is never going to work. Hahaha.
But let's be real here for a second, can we please? This whole online dating thing is a visual medium, you know it and I know it, and I could list a million things about myself that I think would be appealing to a woman, which still wouldn't give you any real clue as to whether or not I'm a complete psychopath. So let's just call a spade a spade.... Am I attractive enough for you to say yes to dinner? That's all this really boils down to, isn't it? And from there, we can start to figure out how interested we both are in the person behind the photos. You in or you out? Simple. (see how I brought back that original theme of 'simplicity'?). Laugh, it makes the world a better place. :)
Lastly, if you're brazen enough to choose a screen name for yourself like: QTinLA or ImTheTotalPackage or DreamGirl4You or Sexy(followed by any suffix), please do not message me. I don't care how pretty you (think you) are. Humbleness is one of the most attractive character traits in a truly beautiful woman. :)
