Dating A Scorpio? You may enjoy this Honesty In Dating Profile. Read on for what they’re unlikely to tell you straight up.
Favorite Quote: “If you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss gazes into you.” Nietzche.
Likes: Not having to answer stupid questions. What is “like.”?
Dislikes: Taxidermy in restaurants. Human rights atrocities. Unscheduled explosions. Being attacked. Weddings when they’ve been living together for a thousand years. Ragged fingernails with hangnails. Illegal elections. That Pinochet got away with it. How society calls people who volunteer to be ‘carers’ for intellectually handicapped adults with the mental age of children saints when they might be exploitative. People making more than one call in a row to “get hold of me” if it is not an emergency. Air conditioning. Botox that collapses one brow but they say it is fine.
Seeking: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” That’s Rumi, and if you don’t get it, you’re blocked.
My Ideal Partner: It was Autumn, I got him off Adult Friend Finder by mistake, and he was about to embark on a tour of duty in (classified location). He had an Eye of Horus tattoo. We joked about it either protecting him or making him more of a target. He said at the end that he did not want to go, but I could tell from the glint in his eyes and that jut in his jaw that he did. I was never notified, obviously, of his passing eight weeks later but he appeared briefly in my bedroom that night, his libido having apparently survived the impact of the chopper, the crossing into Valhalla or whatever it is. It took five days for an insultingly banal obit to appear in his local rag. Sometimes I let myself drift into a reverie that him appearing in my bedroom was more than just ghostly lust…that we had a thing.
Our Ideal Date Together Would Be: Why? Do you need an alibi?
