Well I told myself that I would not join match again after being on here on and off for over a year. But here I am again, and hopefully this time things will be different. Meeting from match has been an interesting process and I look forward to meeting that special person. One thing I have learned is it is always best to establish a friendship before moving to more of a serious relationship. I think being friends first is very important to progress forward. Of course things like honesty, communication, and respect are important. I think we are all essentially looking for the same thing, someone that we cant live without. I have met some wonderful people from match but I truely would like to meet that one person who respects me from day one. Someone who understands that there are times you need your space and to be comfortable to give that space and not feel threatened. Someone that understands even though we may be sitting on the couch together and not saying a word, just knowing that person is sitting next to you is all that matters. I want someone who understands what it means to compromise and not feel that one person needs to make all the decisions. Sometimes it is great to plan things but sometimes its great to just be spontaneous. I am comfortable being in the "scene" or just staying home and watching a movie.
Attraction is key and you know right away if chemistry is there or not. Women always talk about feeling butterflies, well guys like that feeling as well. To have an amazing date and go home thinking when will I see her again is an awesome feeling. I am a very easy going person and appreciate when the person I am with communicates what is on their mind without taking an attacking stance. Its ok to disagree on things but its not ok to not try to understand where the other person is coming from. Having different interests and opinions help us grow together and its very important to learn from each other. I like to think of being with someone in a relationship like a team, we should make the best team out there. Be there for each other no matter how bad things get.
If any of this makes sense and you would like to know more I would love to hear from you. Otherwise best of luck in your search and I hope we all find that special person!
