I'm just trying this out since being busy with work and not going out on the weekends isn't really helpful to meeting people. I've made a lot of changes in life, and I have a kind of interesting story about my career path. It's kind of a 360 from what I first went to school for :P But that's why I've been busy with working on my current career path. Which means, I work hard during the week and just want some quality time w/ my significant other on the weekends :) Anyway, as for why I'm here, I guess it also doesn't help that my pool of single friends is definitely dwindling with age. I'm just looking for someone who can connect with me and we have similar views on relationships and commitments. I think timing is everything, both people need to be at a place where they can focus on a relationship. I'm looking for someone who is understanding, empathetic, and someone I can communicate with. I am looking to get to know someone and build a relationship. Relationships are about 2 people, and I think relationships need to built between 2 people first and foremost. I consider myself very supportive, and I only expect the same in return. Hopefully our priorities would be straight, because I'm looking for a committed relationship and hopefully the other person is at a place in his life where he is able to focus on a relationship. I also think relationships should be a mutual dynamic, not just one person having to adapt, but both people trying to compromise and give and take. I lead a very simple and quiet life and am not particularly social, not that I can't socialize but I am more into quiet time. I don't open up easily to people and keep very few close friends because it's quality not quantity to me... hopefully I find someone who shares the same mentality. I know that adapting to a relationship life vs. a single life takes time, that there are going to be some things that are hard to give up.. but I hope to be with someone who understands there is another person's feelings involved. I just ask for their time and actually spending time, talking, and getting invested in each other's lives. I don't like to take people for granted.. and I really hope the same from someone I'm looking for.
