I follow a guy on Twitter and through his blogs, Dad Unmasked, who is a divorced dad raising 2 girls. I love what he writes about in both venues. As someone that has done the dating site game, I totally enjoyed his Fantasy Dating Profile post. It inspired me to write one of my own.
The whole idea is that the profile I write is REAL, the real me! The fantasy in this case being that someone out there wants the REAL people, not the Barbie dolls. I cannot tell you the number of profiles I had read of guys who are overweight, unemployed or living like it (hey can only go on your pictures of the trashed trailer you appear to be sitting in with dirty dishes stacked high and trash bags piled around) that are dog ugly and specify that the female needs to be trim, in shape, and gorgeous. Really? So see, the fantasy is that someone would really want the real me! And so far that guy I seek must be a fantasy too, as I’m just looking for a REAL guy. But that is for the post I will title “Mr. Right’s Fantasy Dating Profile” to be posted in the near future.
SO, here is my fantasy dating profile:
My Self Summary: I’m a 48 year old, divorced mother of two. My children are both adults, they do not live with me but are known to make unscheduled, unannounced visits and this is a good thing. I’m 5’6″ tall, curvy with a few extra pounds. Yes a FEW. NO I am not fat, obese, etc. When I say few I mean it, I am nothing if not brutally honest. I have big boobs, a plus to some men and a minus to others. I have hips and a booty and I’m not upset about it. I’m very happy with myself as I am. I’m not your sugar mama, I don’t make a lot of money. But I’m very happy with what I make and comfortable. I am not a clean freak but I’m not a hoarder. If it hasn’t been used or worn in 6 months I dispose of it to charity or the trash. I don’t like clutter and I won’t live with it either.
I’m really good at: Cleaning, taking care of little ones, and sales. I was a very good office manager too, but I’ve made a serious career change into daycare and sales and have no intentions of returning to managing anyone’s office but my own. I can cook but don’t like too so my talents are limited. But I’ve yet to go hungry. I’m good at cheering for my favorite football teams and yes I do like watching it either in the stadium, a sports bar, or my own living room with friends. I can dress up and look like a million but frankly much prefer a tailgate, fire pit, a hoodie and some beer with friends.
The first thing people notice about me: My eyes. If I had a dollar for every time someone complimented my eyes I’d be rich.
Food: Chipotle steak bowls, with rice, black beans, corn salsa and cheese…no sour cream. EVER.
Movies: too many to name but they are not all chick flicks.
Music: that varies with my mood or the mood I wish to set. Country, classical, hip-hop, classic rock, easy listening, soft rock…
Books: first and foremost my bible. Then a variety of things, romance, historical fiction, biographies, autobiographies, motivational, business…I love to read.
TV Shows: Blue Bloods, CSI, CSI:NY, NCIS and Criminal Minds.
I’m seeking: A man who is honest, I cannot and will not tolerate lies. Someone who is affectionate, who isn’t looking for a Barbie Doll, is loyal/faithful (sorry don’t share), works hard but doesn’t let work come before his family, someone seeking a best friend in their mate and not a trophy.
Sadly this isn’t what most are seeking I am thinking. But I’m working on a post all about the real me. I did one for my 100th post long ago, but thinking it is time to really open up. That is a post coming too.
