First of all, thank you so much for reading! I’m sorry that your dating experiences have been such a disappointment. It’s SO exhausting, isn’t it?
I am definitely not perfect and as a 46 year-old female INTJ I am all but guaranteed of being single for life. (Seriously. Feel free to read the “romantic” section for INTJs. The feedback is essentially: maniacal laughter.)
I’m from the South and appreciate a gentleman — there are woman who still do! I sure hope you might find your person!
By the way, just throwing this out because I plan to do this once my son is older: I’m going to increase my geography for potential suitors. I don’t think it’s going to happen for me here in Austin, but think I might have success if I open it up to all of Texas and/or Florida through North Carolina. Maybe you could try something like that (if you haven’t already).
By the way, I wondered (from a purely curious place) if my title would come off as male-based. It wasn’t important but I had feared I might come off a bit confusing initially. It sounds like it didn’t really matter, but it was helpful to hear you confirm that so thank you for sharing.
I have a few new stories in the recesses of my brain that I need to coax out. I think you will appreciate them and I’m going to have you in the back of my mind as I’m writing these particular stories.
You might specifically like this story of mine. It’s obviously written from a female perspective, but it might resonate:
Thanks again — at least you know you have kindred spirits out here!
