So, I am to wonder if I am too independent?!? Yea, not possible.
Here are a few things that will help you get to the next round...
1- Please be legally and emotionally available. You can't imagine how frustrating it is to invest time and energy getting to know someone only to learn that they are still hung up on past relationships. We all have a past but if you are carrying a ton of baggage, I am really not interested.
2- Remember the movie Jerry McGuire? Please don't mess with a single mom, it's just not cool! I am not interested in a casual hook up. I am on this site to find something meaningful. I have been fortunate to meet some great people that have become friends and in all honesty, I met my Ex Husband on Match 8 years ago, so I do know it works.
3- I am a very driven person and I expect the people I surround myself with to be the same. Please don't misunderstand this as finanial success. Money doesn't buy happiness or love last time I checked. Do you have passion and goals? Now we're talking.
4- Please don't limit getting to know me as a penpal. I also have two cell phones so if I wanted a texting relationship I can do that on my own.
5- I want someone to put as a top priority in my life and me in theirs. As much as I am passionate about my career and hope that my partner could be driven too; I don't want to miss out on experiencing life with each other and taking a break from it all.
So yes, all of the above are serious but hopefully, you are getting a sense of my humor and sarcasm too.
I am a hopeless romantic at heart who just wants to be happy and find that happily ever after. I understand that compromise, communication, passion and respect are the cornerstones to any successful relationship.
My friends and family mean the world to me. My parents have been married for over 40 years and are a huge rolemodel in what it takes to have a successful and loving marriage. I have a close circle of friends who I would do anything for and they are like sisters and bothers to me more than anything; especially since I am an only child.
Best of luck to all of you!
