Like many of us here, I have always been hesitant to go on sites like this one because I am a bit sentimental and always thought that going on a site like this might take away from the magic of meeting someone for the first time and feeling an instant connection. I realize that sounds incredibly sappy, so I've decided to take a chance - you never know!! I am intelligent, willing to share my opinions/views, funny/silly, compassionate, sometimes stubborn (might as well be honest! lol) and a sentimental person who is a true friend and understands the importance of being authentic. My ideal match would be someone who is looking for a serious relationship and who appreciates the importance of both friendship and romance in a relationship, respects my individuality, believes laughter is incredibly important and is warm, sees life as an adventure and is true to himself and others.
