Here's my attempt at an earnest profile:
I am 41 as my age states and all my photos are recent. I'm also 5'11 in real life, not just on the internet, and I have a full time job that pays well enough to keep me in decent clothing and living in a decent apartment. What that job is will probably surprise you, but it's not top secret so just ask and I'll happily tell. I live in Riverdale - in the bronx - which is about 10 minutes away by car (which I own) from the uws. It's quite a bit away from Brooklyn and Staten Island so you'll forgive me in advance if I feel that should you live there, we're too far away from each other to start anything meaningful. I think relationships - at the beginning at least - need that possibility of immediacy and spur of the moment fun. Too much planning and working around commutes and schedules take some of the thrill away from it - at least for me.
I've never been married, nor do I have any children. Both by choice. I don't know if either of those things will ever happen, but I don't plan on hurrying anything so if your reason for being on here is to snag the first guy who doesn't have an arrest record, you can probably move on to the next profile (though I hear that guy actually does have an arrest record, so maybe two profiles down the line would be better). I believe that chivalry isn't dead, that flirting across a table is sexier than through a computer screen, that games are better if they're played on a board, and that women can be just as adventurous as men. I also believe that - on here at least - it is a woman's world. If you're gorgeous and smart and fun and happy men will flock to you, but you'll only respond to the ones that interest you. So instead of adding another email to your pile, I'll wait for you to say hi, because that's when we both know you're really interested. and then we shall see what we shall see.
