Let's be truthful and admit that initial attraction is important. However, you must have something going for yourself other than your looks. Looking like (insert supermodel/actress name here) but having the IQ of a raisin will bore me quickly. Therefore, I'm settling on money. If your parents are loaded, it doesn't matter how ugly or dumb you are, as long as your sister is attractive.
In all seriousness, I'm looking for a nice girl who likes to laugh and can make me laugh. Believe me, behind this silliness is a good guy. I'll be the guy that you can to talk to everything about from agricultural policy in emerging economies to the latest Hollywood scandal. I'm a great listener...especiall y during commercials.
What are my hopes with JDate? There are two possible end results:
a) Meeting a bitter, man-hating wench with a bloated sense of entitlement and plenty of expectations, who will harshly criticize me over time and grow resentful and hostile when I don't fulfill every need she's ever had.
b) You're cool and pretty (in my eyes). You get along with my friends and I'll get along with yours. You're intelligent and witty but not arrogant. You have a good sense of humor (e.g.: You'll laugh at all my jokes). You have a good heart - you'll help others out, not because you expect something in return, but because it's the right thing to do.
If you're option "a", don't email me, unless you're really really really hot. If you see yourself as a "b", take a chance...who know where this might take us?
