the why are you single thread

I'll start. I like 'em somewhat liberal but not too hippy or flaky.
I like 'em smart but not made too cruel or impatient
by their intelligence. I like irreverence and not taking
oneself seriously except when it is worth taking seriously.
I appreciate that everyone has been through something but
I am not here to heal anyone nor do I ask this of others.
So much to ask for? Must be. I keep finding people that
1) want someone to heal them, 2) are into really esoteric
weird stuff, 3) are smart and impatient with the rest of the world.
Not all together, but those three seem to sum um the kinds of people
I end up finding in the dating world . Is this the universe, just pick one?
Someone else next--

By popular demand, apparently.

Esoteric weird stuff can be stimulating and a lot of fun.

I sympathize for those of you who are looking. Lots of people are very self-absorbed, which makes it hard to establish a good relationship. I'll offer the age-old and counter-intuitive advice. Stop looking. It will find you.

And stop being so picky, just find a nice girl that you respect and fall in love already. Jeesh, you single folks make it so complicated

Dear Abb...err..Zorro,

If it finds you way quicker then you thought it would, is that a bad sign?

I'm single because:

I'm currently unemployed.
My roommate is my younger brother, so my house is not the ideal dating environment.
I'm too poor to date much

I like riding my bicycles and motorcycles in the summer and skiing in the winter...it's not easy to find a woman who likes those things.

And the #1 reason I'm single.....

I spend too much time on Bike Forums!!

Some day I'll meet someone, but for now I'm just an average guy gettin' by the best way I can.

Yes. That combined with my clumsiness means I end up accidentally stomping away potential suitorettes.

I almost can't remember being single....

I've been married longer than many on this forum have been alive

That's okay. I think dating your conjoined twin would be frowned upon.
