I have just moved into northern Michigan from the Detroit area. I'm looking to make new friends and eventually get to know a particular person better. I'm looking for someone kind and generous who also knows how to have a good time. Bonus if that person enjoys writing and photography. I love my family and am very close to them; I want someone who values family, too. I hope to find someone who shares my liberal political views, but this is not a deal-breaker. I want someone articulate, intelligent, funny, with a strong sense of ethics. I hope to find someone who wants to be in a committed relationship. My idea of the perfect date would be time spent getting to know each other, having a good conversation.
