personal_ad
x Every time I entertain the idea of writing an ad for myself, it seems so impossible. If I only list good qualities, the person is bound to find out about the rest eventually, if not immediately. If I try to give both sides, I might scare off some people who guess that there's even worse things that I'm not mentioning. And at the bottom of it all, is the problem that I don't believe that I'm much of a product. So, I decided to move it back to blather as a thought experiment, to track over time. Feel free to ad your own.

People say I am: intelligent, caring, creative, mysterious, attractive, complex, intense, surprising, contrary, and unique. They note my interest in: kittens, beer, food, and inquisition.

I say I am: hard to understand, troubled but determined, seeking answers, having a hard time describing myself. My interests that come to mind are: cooking, introspection, learning how to be a good teacher, creative projects, and absorbing music.

I am looking for: Someone who is committed to making things work. Someone who will help me grow as I help them. Someone who thinks I'm good. Someone who won't suffocate me or run away from me. Someone who isn't scared of love. Someone who likes to spontaneously make silly fun plans to do something. Someone who reminds me that life is what you make of it. Someone who makes me feel good, and who I can make feel good.
Someone who doesn't exist.

ever dumbening i've had one off and on for quite a while now (first on match (laaaame) and now springstreet). it hasn't solved the riddle of the sphinx for me, but it has provided some dates with some strange and wonderful people. ooh, child, the stories, the stories, the stories.

for a good laugh at your fellow 'skite, go to personals.theonion.com (or nerve or salon, all the same thing), and type in king_james (with the underscore) into the box that says 'profile name search' in the bottom right. enjoy my little self-portrait. hehe

stork daddy people say i'm: funny, a cutie (mainly strippers), thoughtful, annoying, tough, lazy, intense and long-winded, easygoing, brilliant (mainly my mom), a beeboo, sensual, insincere, blah blah blah, good enough, stud, timid, bold, etc. etc.

i say i'm: overly sincere, different from what i present, paradoxical or at least lacking consistency across situations in that i'm eager to please, anxious underneath all the calm, a little hard on myself, a paralyzing perfectionist, boring, predictable, soft, hard luck champion material, too doubtful, fun to watch, and just about to round the corner.

what i'm looking for in another: someone who understands that experience trumps possessions while not going overboard and fetishizing possessions at the cost of the other thing that matters most to me, what we mean to other people and ourselves. someone who is patient and doesn't sweat the details. someone who doesn't mind either my doting or my distance, which often can occur at the exact same time. someone who cares enough to apologize and forgive. someone who can hate me in the same temporary way i hate wrestling or writing. a composite of everyone i've ever loved. you! or maybe her over there. whatever feels right.

Not the Daddy Ah, Stork Daddy, what a strange variegation of characteristics.
