This is a really hard story to write because elsewhere on here I think I remember clicking on a "I am nice" group. And yet, the simple name of this group implies that I group guys by their IQ. In reality, it's not quite that simple. It simply means that if you are a guy, and you want to catch my attention *in that way* then your best strategy is to engage me between my ears.
Be warned: I'm afraid I've been a little spoiled here. My dad and my brother are REALLY intelligent guys and this means they can fire off quick one-liners and have me rolling on the floor. It means they challenge my assumptions about life everyday and make me defend my beliefs. My dad loves debate (to a fault) and has practiced his skills on me for years. Like most women, my view of the ideal guy for me is shaped by the role models I have; so be ready, I've had good ones.
So yes, I am here to meet people, to chat with people, to learn about you and about me. However, if you are a guy, and you want me to feel an attraction to you, your first challenge should be to engage my head. If you succeed, the rest of me is attached. ;-)
May 2013: I read this story I posted just eleven months ago and realize how far I've come in this past year. I arrived at EP last Spring struggling with my feelings toward guys and girls and denying even to myself that I had any romantic interests in other girls. What a journey of discovery it has been! :-)
