Personal Ad Makeover Contest: Brandon (BEFORE)

Congratulations to Brandon, the winner of the Geek’s Dream Girl Personal Ad Makeover Contest for August!

Brandon’s profile is on Plenty Of Fish, one of the bigger free online dating sites.  He’s 31 and recently out of a long term relationship.

His profile doesn’t have any glaring red flags, but it’s pretty lackluster in places.  In the next two posts, I’ll dissect it and then re-write it in a way that will hopefully net him some fish from that big ol’ sea!

About Me

I’m a Geek, as stated. I’m a whole lot like Don Quixote, but I look a bit more like Sancho. Kudos to you if you get the reference; you are probably the type of gal I’m looking for if ya do. Like Others Geeks of my type, I dig comic books, and Star Wars. Martial arts and meditation. Existentialism, and questions on man and Morality. I’m a brain in a body; most of my pursuits are cerebral in some from or another. I do wacky things like build music lists for games I’m going to be playing in, and will discuss nearly anything that takes my fancy.I’m looking for my Geek Princess, someone who can at least appreciate my passions, but even better if she shares some of them. And should she have some passions of her own, all the more reason to be intrigued.

I recently had a break up with a long time girl, so I’m not looking to get into anything too serious right away; but I feel I need to get back out here and look, and be looked at. We’ll talk, and maybe sparks will fly.

First Date

I do like to go with something a little tradition, or boring, depending on your viewpoint. I think going to dinner together is a great idea, the movie, not so much. I like to try to find out what sort of cuisine really tempt you, and then have a nice, languorous meal, savoring the experience, and the conversation. I have a few nice suits, and like to break them out when I can, so I will try to take us somewhere upscale, or at least with a decent atmosphere. Should there be sufficient light and time, we could go to one of the nicer parks in town and continue the conversation. Should things go exceptionally well, and sparks flying, I may try to keep you as long as possible, maybe going to someplace that serves coffee late, and just while away the hours getting to know you until you absolutely must get home, at which point I shall turn you lose reluctantly.
