Unfortunately don't do much dating as I am not so interested in the frogs!.(the French). Moved down to the south of France married to a Brit (who looks great in kilt!...but things have not worked out so am now back in the market..!!) But what I am looking for is hard to meet locally so..
distance is not such a problem....as long as attraction is very very strong...and potential to be together exists.. (I will travel and I will move...but probably only to NY, SF, LA, DC or not too far from these places.
don't like mustaches...although with a beard it can be pretty cool.
don't mind baseball caps...as long as business suit ...or trendy black is also often on the list
out of shape will never work...
in general don't date people way above or below my age ..
might have a hard time with people who have strong accents...

Bentley or BMW's are my kind, I love a man to looks fresh and pressed, smelling like a million dollars, with every hair in place...a wide eyed southern boy, with that charm of a gent, I cannot resist, yuummmmyyyyy..
I suppose dating a rich guy would cover the cost of both bags for your head and the corresponding world-wide search for an HIV cure.

Some limits make sense. I don't date smokers, for instance. I'm not interested in a very long distance relationship. Or married men. These limits are natural.
But what of this? I've discovered anyone south of the Mason-Dixon is pretty much SOL if he wants to hear from me, unless he makes it clear he's a displaced Yankee. Isn't that curious: I'm a Yankee snob! I had NO IDEA!
I've also discovered I'm averse to motorcycles, cowboys, and baseball hats. But a Scottish kilt? Yum! Go figure. It makes no sense.
Anyone else noticed any strange, arbitrary or weird "filters" in their dating process? Perhaps it doesn't have to make sense; perhaps we just need to accept that the mating process is gloriously weird; there is no telling what will turn a person on or off.
Since I am a smoker, have a good collection of baseball hats, occasionally wear boots and a cowboy hat and from south of the Mason-Dixon line I will refrain from answering this one.
I would never date anyone in my Ex's family. They'd tell "him" how much I've changed for the better.
I'm not partial to facial hair, epecially the unkempt kind. My skin is too sensitive and even necking with a man who's 5 o'clock shadow is pushing midight will chap my skin just gazing at him.
I used to think I wouldn't settle for anything but perfection, but I was once very fond of a man who has hair on his back, has a bit of a paunch and was expanding in the forehead area. But he made me feel like I was delicious and ravageable.
I'd never date a man again, who came to pick me up in an old junker. I'd never date a man again who didn't make me feel special. (with words and manners, NOT money and presents)
I'd never date a man who criticizes or disses others. Or is rude to serving personnel. Or tells jokes until I want to throw a banana peel in front of his next step.
I'd never date a man who felt contempt or superiority over any person of a particular race, colour, religion, sex preference, political persuasion or social status. I would respect his right to his opinion ... but I might not respect the rest of him.
Nonetheless, that still leaves a hell of a lot of men I WOULD date!
