Gosh, I'm not sure where to even begin at this point. I've been married, I've had girlfriends, I've dated many different women with many different personalities. In the past when I've thought I had found the "right" match, I found myself jumping into relationships and situations quickly and blindly with only my emotions and gut feelings to guide me. Not anymore.
My marriage was just that- a passionate encounter with a drop-dead Slovakian girl. We fell head over heels for each other, a perfect chick flick if you will, and within two months, I had dropped everything in my life, moved to Texas to wake up beside her and a few short weeks later, surprised her with a drive-thru wedding in Vegas.
As much as my gut told me that she was the one, I was quick to find out that once the perfect glaze of that heated honeymoon period had ended, we were no more right for each than lesbians and light sabers.
Let's just say that my gut hasn't always been accurate in the land of love. You live, love and learn as they say. As for what I've learned, my goal is to avoid diving face first into relationships before I really get to know the other person. It still happens as I date, but that's the plan anyway. And who really cares, after all, it's a thrilling adventure and that's really what turns me on.
I used to blame work on the reason I haven't gotten out there to meet that certain somebody. But I can't anymore. Although I find myself often consumed with my business I step out often to meet, mingle and enjoy the benefits of single-hood.
Why am I here you may ask? Because I'm not satisfied with what I've come across previously and I'm not a settler. I figured that it wouldn't hurt to scour the internet and open up the possibilites that seem abundant here in Southern California.
I'm not sure what kind of a partner or the type of relationship I'd like to have. I've had short and passionate as well as long and serious, both of which have been phenomenal experiences. As I have already mentioned above, what I "think" I want doesn't seem to work, I refuse to label it exactly. Frankly, I just want to be wowed. And I plan to do the same back.
I do know this, though. I want to be with someone active who focuses on maintaining a slender and toned physique for both health and youthful appearance. I spend a lot of time exercising so I would expect the same.
Finally, someone who is positive and fun to be around. Life is to short to be around complainers, negative Nancies and overly boring individuals. I understand that no one is perfect, myself being a perfect example. However, we live in such a negative world so have a healthy mental attitude and a desire to grow as a person is vitally important to me as well.
No more small talk. I'm ready for some fun.
