Women Say the Damnedest Things: Ultimate Online Dating Profile


Ever wonder if your online dating profile sounds stupid? Read this one and set your mind at ease.

  I like to play fair. You might think that this lack o’ cheating has something to do with a moral compass or some other reasonably positive personality trait—but you would be wrong. That’s right I do it for selfish reasons. Surprise! (Well, maybe if you’ve read anything I’ve ever written it wouldn’t be that big of a surprise.)

Normal seeks same. How hard can THAT be, RIGHT???? A bit about me... I’m pretty normal and well grounded from life's lessons. My Energizers are Sun, Water, Music, Workouts... I feed myself with these and then Energize the world . I am passionate about life! Passion takes many forms. it's energetic! If I ruled the world ...fun would be mandatory everyday! Looking for the guy who ranks high on the "Fun Factor Scale"! Why Not?
