You like to talk and share quality time - REAL relationships start that way. You believe who you're with is more important than what you're doing. You won't share all my interests - just share some of them and I'll do the same. You are independent and enjoy a night out with the girls. You will occasionally let your spirit of adventure triumph over your good sense. You're a complete package, beautiful both inside and out and you leave a lasting impression.
You believe a successful relationship depends on finding the right person and being the right person. You understand that great love, and great achievements, sometimes involve great risk. You are financially responsible for yourself (as I am for myself), and you understand that any meaningful relationship is a partnership - in every sense of the word! I'm looking for the 3 essentials for happiness: something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for.
"And all I really know is what I see,
and everybody sees it differently.
I wish someone could open up my heart
and look inside of me.
But I'm the only one who holds the key."
Unfortunately, too many first dates are ruined by attempting to create the illusion of romance when two people haven't even met yet! The ideal first date will include plenty of conversation (hopefully), undivided attention, and won't be anything more than meeting for a drink to start. We will both know within minutes if there's a spark or not. If so, great, and we can feel free to cultivate it! If not, no harm done.
This dating thing is tough. Sometimes it's not any fun at all. "I like her but she doesn't like me", and vice versa. We all know meeting this way is unusual. Unrealistic expectations combined with a refusal to abandon past bad experiences doesn't help either. Why not look for the good qualities that we all have and just have some fun? And if it doesn't work out, then...
"You can get on with your search, baby,
and I can get on with mine.
And maybe some day we will find,
that it wasn't really wasted time."
What about you?
And, yes, I have a job! I have my own computer service and consulting biz. Life is good, business is great. I make my own hours, let the sun wake me up every day, meet new people all the time...and I get a check when I’m done. What could be better than that? I feel truly blessed and I’m thankful to be doing something I really enjoy.
So, if we're not a Love Connection, maybe you just found yourself a Computer Guy!
Finally, NO PHOTOS = NO REPLY...and, please, NO WINKS! Send an actual message, OK? Thanks for your understanding. And, speaking of photos, that's my little sister with me on Xmas Day. I've been asked enough times that I guess I need to point that out!
