Ms. Confession's Reporting Live From Match.com

So not sure if I mentioned I have a profile on match.com, after knowing a few people with fair success; I decided to give the site a try. So here we are 30 days later and I haven’t found love just yet. However, I am taking my time with this method of “dating”. I am in no rush to meet anyone until I feel its necessary. So anyway, I thought I’d share a few profiles on occasion. Some of these guys are pure comedy while there are some that have caught my attention. No I feel no shame in posting their profiles, after all they are available for the world via match.com

For example the following profile is from a man that reminds me of Mr. Old MBA- Hey some of you may like it, but I found him to be quite full of himself. I am more interested in this guy’s past. I smell a humble story about boy who was raised in small country town with a pet pig. LOL, he’s just too flossy for me (in a comical kind of way), and we’ll ignore the major typos for now. What do you think???




About my life and what I'm looking for
I'm looking for that special time with some one who is looking to add some excitement to their life. I'm 6'3 athletic, well educated, well traveled, in shape (I run, bike, swim). I'm confident but not conceited. In fact, I'm probably a little shy. 

I'm considered handsome, well dressed (albeit I usually wear jeans) and no emotional baggage. I live a drama free life My Ideal Person: Someone who is looking for excitement, romance and the thrill of a special encounter. She is a professional, educated and understands the difference between sensuality and sexuality. 
She is takes care of herself, can hold a conversation and maybe looking to rekindle the excitement and zest in her life. Attractive is important but personality and chemistry is just as important. 

If I had a style of dress it would be considered classy casual/ maybe even somewhat bohemian yet I have a closet full of suits from Saks. I'm fiscally conservative but I also think a woman should have a right to choose, I see nothing wrong with gay marriage and yet I think we should have prayer in school. 
If you just read all of that...I'm impressed...hopefully it gives you a glance into who I am...I'm looking forward to hearing about you.

In my own words
for fun:
I enjoy everything from reading to music ( hip hop to country) I enjoy running, swimming and biking... I'm athletic I write but wish I could weave a story that would inspire I enjoy going to the movies I enjoy dinning out.
my ethnicity:
I'm an african american male, black is the colr of my skin but not a reflection of my charecter. Please judge me by who I am and not my skin color
favorite hot spots:
I have traveled the world from Moscow, Russia to Moscow, Idaho. From Tokyo to Tampa However, I find that cozy neighborhood bars are the place to meet to find local flavor. Where is the good seafood in this town?
favorite things:
Anything written by Walter Mosley, intelligent people, learning, the art of the deal, contemplation, listening, traveling but not for work, comfey jeans put it this way.. I have enough useless information stored to be a contestant on Jeporady
last read:
I try to read, ok, at least quickly scan, at least two or three papers a day. I enjoy knowing whats going on in the world. Reading "BlowBack" consequences of U.S. forgien policy.George Tennent's book Any thing by Vince Flynn, enjoy Vanity Fair.






I did think he was cute so I sent him a wink.
About my life and what I'm looking for
Fun and excitment are defaults in my life. I am very outgoing, love to do anything from going to the Improv , Mavericks, art exhibit, sports bar doesn't matter, as long as I'm/We having fun. My motto is life is too short to sweat the small stuff. I work-out 5x a week and enjoy running...I'm 250lb, 6'1, handsome, I am latin & black( Puerto-rican), If you are looking for extraordinary, normal, fun, attractive guy...let's talk. Remember nothing ventured nothing gained. "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded."- Ralph Waldo Emerson. Judge not the book by it's cover, but by the content...and value of what is inside and how that my enhance your life. ( In other words give me pass on the no shirt pic, I already know I need another picture ). 

Let's explore the infinite possibilities of life, love and our imagination...because as Cassius said "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,/ But in ourselves that we are underlings"I'm open-minded about meeting new people in general and hopefully developing more friendships. Looking for an intelligent ,attractive, honest, fun, out-going person who has a good sense of self and understands that life is too short to sweat the small stuff...a woman who embraces simplicity and understands what is truly important in life and wants to enjoy life and have fun. The unexamined life is not worth living -Plato "Make love now, by night and by day, in winter and in summer...You are in the world for that and the rest of life is nothing but vanity, illusion, waste. There is only one science, love, only one riches, love, only one policy, love. To make love is all the law, and the prophets." -Anatole . Remember as you see my pictures and read my profile and come to your conclusion of me, what Protagoras said "man is the measure of all things, of things that are that they are, and of things that are not that they are not"

I haven't fully committed to Match.com. I wish that they were more men of color or unless you fully subscribe they give you more options. LOL, I hope you find a person who you can have a good time with. I need to get myself together and get back into the game.

Good Luck!!
