No one wants this, for real. I actually view this as the worst possible scenario. If someone wanted to dance on a hilltop with me like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music I would run like hell.

I’m about to get real with you, Jeff from an older? seasoned? female. Well, I’m 45 so based on the scientific definition of a lifespan I’m mid-life. Based on genetics I’m more like at the 2/3 lifespan. Anyway, looks are not everything and I’m not even referring to the several times you mentioned how you feel about your physical appearance.

Maybe the chick is beautiful. attractive, goddess like, whatever and that may be what attracts people to one another at first but quite honestly I would so much rather be in a relationship with an average looking person who has great qualities that amplify their level of sexiness than Brad Pitt, who by the way, is not all that attractive.

Who you are will make more of a lasting impression than how you look.

It’s like having an idea. The idea sounds good in theory (technically hypothesis) and on paper but then when you go to execute the idea you’re like, WTF was I thinking? For instance, maybe macaroni art isn’t going to be the big seller I thought it was after all.

P.S. There are a lot of freaky people out there in the world so please take a can of mace with you when you make a date online then meet IRL. Safety first.
