No drama? Is that even possible?

I wrote this laughing because many men will post in their online dating profiles, "Looking for drama free girl", or "Not interested in any drama". Seriously? If you are looking for a date you are most likely in the "reject pile" and some level of drama drug you there.
Aside from that, doesn't no drama mean not alive? Life is crazy; sometimes calm, warm and zen like and sometimes messy, dirty and difficult. Good or bad, there is always some kind of drama.
