I won’t bother saying it’s not MINE, since who’ll believe me anyway (although if y’all knew me, you’d know I enjoy a long hike about as much as I enjoy eating crushed glass)?
I will tell you that the gal whose ad it is feels like it sounds “too serious and nerdy and not active enough.” She wants it to better reflect her sardonic wit.
And where better to find sardonic wit than the SDMB?
*I’ve lived in a lot of different places and met lots of interesting people. These different experiences have helped to shape the person I am today. I am passionate about my job (I laugh every single day), my friends and my family (not necessarily in that order). I have learned that I need a good balance of all of these things to make my life work. I love road trips, rollerblading or skating, good books, college basketball, crossword puzzles, baseball (you get extra points if you know who the Scooter is) John Cusack movies and long hikes. I’m independent and have goals that I still want to achieve (like learning to play the guitar, knit or knowing what my carburetor really does). My friends accurately describe me as easy-going and really fun to be around. I would also add that I’m an honest person, loyal to a fault, and a good listener. I throw a great party, I have a big heart, I love excitement and those quiet times spent reading the Sunday paper. I am ready to meet someone who is energetic and willing to share their life with me as much as I am with them. *
I personally like it. I’d certainly date her if I were a young single stud muffin… but, then, I have the benefit of knowing that she’s a hot tamale, so it’s hard for me to look objectively at this ad. Since y’all can… share. Do. It’ll be fun.
