I'm searching for interesting individuals who have a decent heart and have something to offer of themselves for friendship or long-term romance..someone who is not looking to change me but rather open my eyes to new sights and sounds. I socialize well in large group settings, but I prefer the intimacy of conversing one on one. I'm not searching for the perfect individual but rather one who can provide a shoulder to lean on when I'm down, one who enjoys living life to the fullest with a big open heart and smile, someone who is not afraid to show their emotion, someone who is not looking to add me to their list of acquaintances but rather someone who is there when you need them. As far as myself is concerned, I'm very VIP (very independent person), loving, caring, a good listener who can offer guidance and advice, a person who can make themself available on short notice when needed, a person you can confide in, etc. I have a big heart for those who wish to open it provided that they have something good to give of themselves in return. I like to laugh a lot and enjoy life to the fullest. My ideal companion would have a great sense of humor and be able to joke about each other's weaknesses in a playful way...someone who doesn't take everything to heart.
