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.
