ANOTHER WONDERFUL PROFILE

Contributor
Love

I wrote this profile for a client about a year ago.

I wrote this profile for a client about a year ago.  What’s interesting is that I really loved it but she didn’t use it.  I don’t know for certain why, but I think it described her to a tee and it might have felt too revealing for her at the time. When we spoke tonight, she told me that she was back on Match.com and asked if I still had the profile.  This time she loved it and said that she’s ready to put it up.


I used to be a tomboy.  Growing up in Guyana, I only played with boys.  I was tanned, skinny, and undisciplined.  Watch out because I’m still a feisty little tiger, and I still like to play with the boys.  I guess nothing much has changed.  I’m lively and I’m very fun to be around.  I’ll try almost anything.  I am an action sports kind of girl—I love everything from jet skiing to horseback riding.  As fun and silly as I can be, I also love more intellectual pursuits—reading, learning about other people’s cultures, discussing current events and world history, or rambling on about a variety of crazy topics.


You will find that I am loyal, loving, and affectionate.  I will be there for you through thick and thin.  I like helping out and caring for those I love.  When you have a personality like that and you are with someone who is the same, the possibilities are endless.  If I could meet someone that devoted and caring, I wouldn’t trade him for the world.  I would stand by him and work with him to get things done.


Okay.  Brace yourself.  Here are ten more adjectives that describe me:  out-going, playful, provocative, spontaneous, go-getter, ambitious, determined, passionate, never-a-dull-moment, unpredictable, and mischievous.  I am not the kind of person who pushes things under the carpet.  I want to know why are you pushing it there?  How long do you intend to leave it there?  Maybe it doesn’t need to be there?  I want answers.  I have to know.  I am an old soul with old-fashioned values, but I am also extremely playful.  I am the kind of woman who will say what I have to say, be supportive, and go for what I want and, at the same time, I can be soft and sensual and nurturing.  Like I said, I am a feisty tiger but, in the right hands, I can be as soft and vulnerable and a kitten.


I want to meet a man I can have fun with, someone who has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh and play.  It will be great if you are wise.  Open-mindedness and intelligence are also good qualities.  I love men who are willing to try new things, travel to new places, and try new kinds of cuisine.  Other things I admire are men who are good communicators, family-orientated, and honest.  Did I mention that I love romance?  But then again, who doesn’t?  You don’t have to be a millionaire, but it is important that you have a career you love and a good relationship with money.  I’m giving and I would love to meet someone who is giving, as well.  And even though I will probably give you hell sometimes, I hope you won’t want to change me.  If we argue, grab me, kiss me passionately, and I promise you that I will shut up.
