Hi! I'm Zach.
So I've done the dating-amongst-friends thing for a couple years. Had some big life changes, leaned a lot, and thought I'd give the online thing another try.
Is Match how I'd prefer meeting someone? Quite honestly no. :) The process is just so exhausting. Meet someone, tell the life story, figure out you can't stand them, haha. So much easier when it's not a complete stranger. But a couple of my best friends I met thru this site so I know good things can happen. (And I don't want to have to say, 5 years down the road, that we met drunk one night at Gregs.)
I'm ready to find a guy to share my life with. I'm someone who believes I deserve someone amazing. Now don't read that to mean that I'm full of myself. There are plenty of people on here who are prettier, have more hair and are in better shape than I am. But I'm unique, creative, caring, motivated...some people deserve whatever ass they can find and I know I deserve better. I get along well with people who share that same positivity about themselves.
I'm kinda picky. More about personality than physical. I'm not desperate--I'm content waiting for the right one to come along. And I feel that with the right person it isn't forced--things just kind of click. And I'll start thinking "Oh God I can't believe they're talking to me...don't screw this up!!" And then we fall madly in love. Easy right? :)
So enough with the thoughts on dating... I really don't have a bunch of specifics I'm looking for--trying to keep an open mind. Someone near my age is preferred--5-10 years older just hasn't worked for me. And ideally someone with a similar height/build (I love love love real short guys!) I'm quite independent and not looking for someone who's around 24/7. I love theatre, photography and interior design among other things. I live in a 1930's house in Zionsville that I spent a year redoing. Anything bright and colorful and creative makes me happy.
I think of my ideal partner as my best friend who I happen to be in love with. Maybe that's you?
