To Date or Not to Date?

So my Chemistry profile says the following about me. I highlighted the elements that rang truest to me. Single folks, you can get this info about yourself without joining as a paid member, if you feel the insight would be helpful to you.

You are a NEGOTIATOR/director

You have a great overview of reality. You see many angles to the same issue and enjoy discussing multiple solutions to complex problems. You like to use your imagination and engage in creative theorizing.

You have executive social skills, easily picking up the gestures, facial expressions and speech patterns of others. You are intuitive; you generally understand people, and your sympathetic nature makes you pliant, adaptable and likable. Yet despite your charm and poise in large social situations, you often enjoy solitude or intense conversations with just one individual or a few close friends.

You are good at doing and thinking a lot of things at the same time. But when you focus on an issue, idea or problem, you like to concentrate in depth. You leave no stone unturned. And with your insight, charm and intellectual bent, you make warm and interesting company.

So far, the first batch of eligible bachelors has been dismissed for various reasons:

  • too far away (they live in NYC, 25-30 miles away, not interested in life in the city at all)
  • too religious (just doesn't float my boat)
  • looking for a skinny girl (yes my profile lists me as "a few extra pounds" - it is either that or "full figured" and I don't have double Ds so I'm not full figured!)
  • looking for children (I am allergic to them)
There are two profiles I indicated out of 10 that I would like to learn more about. So then we go back and forth with some pre-set questions and hopefully reach a point of open email exchange.

One of the profiles hasn't responded. The other has indicated that he has no interest in pets.

Tough start so far, I'd say.

Hugs to me.

I must remind myself that at least I have GYM!

Gym is always there when you need him! ;) hee hee

So, I might have to try this profile thing. Btw, my friend and I last night admitted to someone that we were gonna try online dating thinking she was going to laugh at us. She said "Oh I've done it - met someone really nice there." So I'm getting less and less scared to do this.

*big deep breath*

Can't wait to hear how this turns out for you!

I did it! Phew. That took a while. Very insightful though!

Your major personality type = Negotiator
Your minor personality type = Explorer

You are a NEGOTIATOR/explorer

You are a big thinker. You easily take the large, long view of almost any topic. You are comfortable juggling myriad facts. You tend to synthesize material easily and to think in webs of factors, not straight lines. You are imaginative and enjoy theorizing.

You are also socially savvy. You are good at both talking and listening. And you generally read people's faces, body postures and tone of voice accurately, so you tend to intuitively understand what people want and need.

You are also highly compassionate. You care deeply about others. So you sometimes make personal sacrifices to be a supportive friend or colleague. And you like to work to improve the world.

You enjoy new ideas and novel experiences. You are flexible, affable and open to adventure. And you admire impulsive, spontaneous people, despite your tendency to plan ahead.

You dislike conflict. You seek "win-win" solutions. And with your skill as a negotiator, you adeptly bring peace to the chaotic world around you. You are a warm, insightful and often exciting companion.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
