my new superhero name is ‘the peach’

I’ve come across a few things about dating in the 84 blogs I follow on a daily basis through Google Reader. Yes, dating, which I’m not doing — I prefer to call it “exploring” — but I decided nonetheless to visit OKCupid.com to take the Dating Persona Test (introduced to me by Nilsa). The Philosopher as of late has taken it upon himself to remind me all of my perceived flaws, insecurities, weaknesses, and hot-button points, so why not be 100% honest with the entire blogosphere about the reality of my Dating Persona — which, I’m guessing, will NOT brand me as a heartless horrible mother who doesn’t pay bills she doesn’t owe to begin with. Here we go…
The Peach
Random Gentle Love Master (RGLM)
Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach. For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you’re surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don’t get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it. You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you’re becoming more selective about long-term love. It’s getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who’s in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him. Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you, but not overly intense. Your exact female opposite: The Nymph; Always avoid: The False Messiah; Consider: The Loverboy, The Playboy, The Boy Next Door

Reading through the other male personas, the vast majority (OK, all) of my past relationships have been with The Mixed Messenger, The Manchild, and The Vapor Trail.

Funny how none of those personas show up on my recommended list. And by “funny” I mean “concrete point of evidence no. 972 that I’ve been dating the completely wrong type of guys.” I’m happy to say The Exploratorium seems devoid of such seedy characters.
