you’re helping), know who she is and what she wants, and, my ultimate favorite, ACCEPT ME FOR WHO I AM. Have you considered the fact that you are on because this is what you’re holding out for?! First of all, these guys check off “slender” as the body type for their match… Look for a girl who doesn’t mind that you (apparently) want to go off ziplining, but who might want to lay in the sunshine and read a book while you do. Having an affair is usually a symptom of an underlying problem in your life and in your relationship.

It seems dubious to me too, but let’s continue as if it’s true. The real kicker here is the type of girl they are all looking for.

The majority of guys on the site go on and on about all of the outdoor adventure activity they do, including mountain climbing, ziplining, white water rafting, bungee jumping, parasailing, sky diving, someone even talked about alligator wrestling. Now on my profile, I checked off the box saying that I want someone who wants kids and who’s single (… And I wrote out by hand that I am looking for an easy-going, honest, passionate guy.

Biochemical research has shown that the effect of these love chemicals is twofold: they are released in response to your friend, and they bond you to him or her.

This is especially true of women who produce higher levels of oxytocin -- the bonding hormone that enhances the feeling of having found your "soul mate" connection.

Letting go of such intoxicating nourishment seems unimaginable.

A platonic friendship doesn't have elements of sexual chemistry or attraction. In contrast, emotional sex is much more secretive and it drains energy from your primary relationship.

These addictive love chemicals feel so good that it's difficult for you to even imagine ending contact with your friend.

Your connection feels genuine and even life-sustaining.

they rarely check off “athletic and toned.” But you want someone who does these adventure sports and plays sports too and works out every day? And how are you going to find someone who is career-driven and is family-oriented and is beautiful who also has time to play sports as an adult and like hike around all the time and wrestle alligators? I do know girls who do that kind of stuff, but believe me most of them do not meet all these other criteria, including having the hot model appearance you desire. I don’t think you want this type of girl, if she even exists, because then she’d be too intimidating and you’d feel like she was overshadowing you and better than you at the things you do, and lord knows that would be a problem. (To work on that tan you demand, obviously.) Or pick, say, two of the major things you’re looking for.

Like, she has to be adventurous and beautiful, but it’s okay if she’s a waitress.

And of course they love traveling and frequent all these crazy places like Iceland and Belize and Egypt and Greece and the rainforests or whatever. I live in North Carolina, 3 hours away from the mountains and 3 hours away from the beach. And how are they getting time off from work to travel all the time, at age 30? Are those the type of characteristics these guys are looking for? She has to be beautiful and adventurous and also love adventure sports like ziplining and whatever the hell, and she also has to love to travel.
