As you know I joined a dating site recently and had to prepare my profile which would hopefully interest would-be suitors. So far, from a profile to profile point of view, I don’t see the connection and the few enquiries I have received are far off the mark. I have therefore prepared a list of questions for would-be dating potentials! Why? Because I am going to cut to the chase and not waste my time or their’s. And rather than a massive surprise later on down the road when I have invested time and energy to realise that this person is not what I expected him to be!
The questions I have in mind would go something like this:
What kind of car do you drive? This is not because I am a car snob, in fact my favourite cars are the old Fiats and Seats. No, this is because I want to know if you drive from nought to 120km and like an arse! I want to know if you’re the driver who is up my backside in the fast lane when ahead there is a line of traffic and no-one is going anywhere either fast or slow!
Do you think that foreigners should go back to where they came from? By this I mean black people! If your views about people are based on the colour of their skin, I want to know now so that I don’t have to waste my life with you. Too many of my younger years were spent being polite when white people got racist and I haven’t got the time or energy to deal with that now.
Do you get on with your mother? I really hope so and that you respect her and show her so. I hope she is the woman in your life for whom you drop everything to make sure she is okay and if she doesn’t live near by, you call her a couple of times a week and see her whenever you can.
Do you have a healthy relationship with your ex, the mother of your kids? It’s not for me to become her best friend but if you have a negative relationship with her and you have kids together, then what does that say about you?
Do you have any money problems? Yes, many of us struggle and I am right now, but I am paying my bills every month. I don’t need or want anyone else’s financial concerns and I especially don’t want to see a man not paying his part in his life.
Do you smoke, do drugs, drink alcohol and get drunk easily and regularly? Get a life, get help and grow up! It impacts on everyone around you, never mind it not being healthy.
Do you watch porn or use porn to get it up? Hmm, fantasy is a good thing but subjecting women to be servers of sex for your gratification…. nope, not interested!
Do you throw your litter away? Do you recycle? No? Why the hell not!!
Do you find kids in general interesting? This is a good indicator of whether it’s all about you or whether you are taking part in the bigger picture of humanity. I like kids, all ages and especially teens. I find them curious, interesting, alive and I am full of hope for them and their future. If you are mentoring any then you’re the man for me!
Do you cook and do you enjoy it? If you love your food and enjoy sharing and preparing, you’re the man for me! And if you are concerned about what you put in your body and are conscious about source and are considering the feelings of all beings on the planet, I can’t wait to taste your cooking!
Do you dance? Then I want you to me in your arms and hold me tight. I want to feel your confidence and your strength exude through the music and fuse us together. I want to feel your smile on my cheek and hear you whispering sweet nothings in my ear. I will melt to be on the dance floor with you.
Do you have audacious plans and dreams for your future? Yes? Well so do I and they include you by my side. I will support you, cheer you on, dream with you and enjoy having you by my side supporting me, cheering me on whilst still doing your own thing and going for it! And you will never hold me back with petty jealousies and insecurities, wondering where I am and why I am not at home waiting for you!
In all of this I remain positive and especially love it when some awesome male friends remind me that there are some great guys out there. One such message of hope from my good friend and brother, Eugene Skeef:
“Please don’t change, Glynis! Your guy is meditating out there somewhere in the hope of your ripples overlapping in the rhythm of true love… You know, I imagine the world is heavily tipped to the side of poor sex/love. The poetry of making/forming/creating/sustaining/generating/envisioning love is mind-blowing!!!!!!! Your moment is just around the corner”
I look forward to meeting you!
