Also I am overflowing with undatable qualities, I promise. I am an insomniac, I can't cook, and I walk like a duck. But nevertheless my "nice" Internets alterego is flattered by your single and 20-years-younger parallel universe self.
See, your niceness betrays you, VP. You probably should have told me to get my wrinkly butt out of your business and called the mod police on me.
Modesty is a virtue, too, my dear (note fatherly tone), but as a father of two fantastic teenage girls, I'll tell you what I tell them: DON'T SELL YOURSELF SHORT.
What we know from your interaction on this board:
- You can spell
- You can articulate an idea or thought (i.e. you're smart)
- You're insightful
- You're respectful and open-minded.
- You're nice
and I can go on...but that puts you ahead of 95% of what's out there (being a REDS fan is a plus also). Set your standards high and don't settle (professionally or in your personal life).
Now I can blush...
