Every now and then you sit back and reflect and think about how you got to this point in your life. It can be something that happened 10 years ago. It can be something that happened last week. It can also be something that happened 100 years ago before you were even born (at least I hope you weren't born yet!). In the end it's all of those things and events and everything in between. There are so many things that give insight. Take photos for example. We're of the generation that as you look further and further back into the past, the technology changes accordingly. That technology alone gives insight. You look at some old faded black and white photo with crinkle-cut edges, and you can just feel that it's old and was of a different time. And then you imagine what it was like to actually be there when that photo was taken. It wasn't black and white and faded and 2-dimensional. It was like right now, except vastly different. There were families and friends and get-togethers. There were good times and bad times and just day-to-day living. And here we are today - a culmination and continuation of where we were back then and before that. Who would have thought all those years ago we'd be sitting here today writing a profile on a computer for a dating site that's on the Internet.
Who/what am I looking for? We have to have fun. And we have to do things together and laugh a lot and enjoy one another's company in the short term and over the long haul. We should be best friends and look out for each other and have the right balance of give and take. We should also have mutual respect, admiration and affection for one another. She likes to touch and be touched, and kiss and be kissed. She should be strong yet giving, unselfish and affectionate. We're all on this journey, and a large part of it depends on what we make of it. The other part is sharing it and experiencing it with others. Being with the right partner on this journey until the end is what I'm looking for.
