Why would anyone want to date you?
What can you offer to entice a possible relationship?
Go ahead...make your case...tell the world what makes you a "good catch."
Here are some stats;
Well that about sums it up I guess.
I'm smart, kind, funny (at least in my head), I have a lot of creative ideas when it comes to sexy times and I get good reviews, I have an awesome partner in life (and crime) who likes to play too, I have a lot of great stories to tell because I've done a lot of interesting things, also:
I'm very creative, being an artist, I doubt if you will ever get bored with me. I love to cook vegetarian. My mom always said the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I think that was before so many restaurants. I love to travel and take pictures. I'm fun. I enjoy a good glass of wine and even a bad one at times. I love wineries and wine tasting. I don't dance well but love music, especially blues. I'm honest and loving. And most important of all, at least here, is I won't drag you to church, quote the bible, or make you feel guilty.
I spent the majority of my life believing I had little if anything to offer. The older I got the more entrenched that belief became. Fortunately that perspective has changed the last couple years.
I now know I have many things to offer. I'm intelligent, open minded, and possessing a quick, razor sharp wit. I delight in making people smile.
I'm compassionate and full of empathy for others, even if I disagree with someone I can see their point of view. (Though that doesn't mean I condone or support the more reprehensible views.)
I'm supportive and caring. I try to lift other people up as much as I can. Doubly so for a significant other.
I'm honest. If there's a problem I'll tell you, and I expect the same from you. Problems can't be fixed if they're not addressed.
I'm fairly self aware. I know my strengths, but I also know my shortcomings. I know I'm far from perfect. I strive to do better, but I also try not to wallow in my mistakes.
I'm humble. It may seem counterintuitive compared to what I've written so far but keep in mind that I'm simply answering the question as posted. I don't take much pride in these traits. The are what they are.
I'm not making my case here, and I'm not 'a great catch', because if a woman thinks that she has to "catch" me, she's not my type anyway. I don't participate in co-dependent relationships, only interdependent ones.
So back to your questions. Some of the positive feedback women have given me was about my honesty, my openness, my transparency, my empathy, my humour, and my energy. But i also have many peccadilloes, which i warned them about. But some ignored these and ultimately labeled me as high maintenance; specifically because i am sometimes too independent, too honest, too open, with sometimes too much energy.
So if you're going to describe your pluses, you better also describe your potential deficits to save you both time and pain. Hope springs eternal so it may not make a difference, but the reality is that avoidance never works indefinitely without having a price to pay.
I don't really have a solid case but I like to think I'm pretty honest and funny and I value communication as one of the most important elements of a relationship. I'm also rather open minded and like trying new things that a potential partner enjoys because it's nice when people take an interest in what you're interested in. I also love intelligent conversation.
