“Mr. Perfect”

I thought about making my second post a diatribe on the different online dating sites and what they “offer” (a term I use loosely….because so far the only thing they’ve provided ME with… is fuel for this blog…).  But, as I started writing it, I realized I should first start with a description of what it is I’m looking for in a potential partner.

Is this a shameless attempt to have readers (I think there are a solid 4 of you so far…) see my “ideal” and set me up?  Yes.  Yes it is.

But, it’s also a bit of insight into why I’m still single…. I’m unbelievably picky.  I recognize this.  I have to admit that from the start so that I have full license to mock and pick at even the tiniest imperfections in the men that come across my path.  It’s only fair…

I am looking for …well…practically perfect.  I want a man who is intelligent, witty, loves God (and that means that he has a REAL faith where he wrestles with what it means to follow Christ in his life…not that he can check a box on Match.com that labels him as “Christian/Protestant.”), is passionate, friendly, funny, devilishly handsome,  outgoing, easy-going (doesn’t get easily heated/angry), has a decent job that he enjoys, appreciates a sassy curvy woman….and on and on the list goes.  Basically – picture that flawless man in all those rom-coms (you know…the ones written by fellow women?), add a healthy dose of spirituality – and that’s my guy.  That shouldn’t be hard to find…right?

So – in the interest of full authenticity, I’m posting screenshots of my Match.com profile.  That way – you can see what it is that I’m showing “the world.”  This is me – online Sarah.  Now you know who I am…. And what I want….

It shouldn’t be THAT hard to find…. Right?


Now that THAT’S out of the way, I’d like to walk us through the dysfunctional jungle of online profiles – where they go horribly, horribly wrong…how they make me giggle, and tips on making them better.
