First and foremost I am 39, but unfortunately had to adjust the age for search purposes only.....and while I don't define myself by age or any other factor, I believe honesty across the board is necessary...That said,there are seemingly some great men on this site...though I have yet to encounter the right match, and I do possess a healthy dose of skepticism regarding online dating. Needless to say, not everything online is as it seems... As far as true compatibility goes, living in a city where arguably there is a multitude of Jewish singles doesn't necessarily make it easier to find the right one...That said, I do believe there are many people that one can live a happy and fulfilling life with--it's just that some lucky folks are very blessed to find the person who is truly most right for them...a tall order apparently for many (including myself). I've also had a rethink about what I feel should be revealed at this particular juncture (why cheapen the natural discovery of all the wonderful eccentricities that make one appealing?).... suffice it to say that I am simple, yet complicated, have many likes, and probably more dislikes (not that I am difficult--just discriminating :)....however, at the core of both lies passion. As far as philosophies, I believe that the most worthwhile pursuits in life are simple and true, and consequently do not need much advertising. I know who I am without a doubt. I also know that I am NOT as comfortable in a dress, as I am in jeans and a t-shirt...sorry to disappoint, though it is fun changing things up... I would like to find that special someone who identifies himself similarly, and genuinely desires to work at finding out more about me.....of course, I'd gladly return the favor.....all in due time. Oh, and a few more things...while I would probably acknowledge an IM from someone who piques my interest, sending a sincere email would be far more impressive to me...also, with all due respect, I will not open/read any flirts...and if you are not fully Jewish, feel inclined to lie about your age, or you are simply anti-religion, G-d, atheist, or even agnostic...sorry, we are probably not a match....Last, but not least, and again with all due respect, if you consider yourself a male feminist, it won't be a good fit..
