My first year in Calgary is almost at an end. I've been successful in my career so it's time to see if there is someone out there for me. Who am I? Traveller, writer, philospher, dreamer, hopeful romantic...all of the above. Some of my passions are the written word in all forms, british sitcoms, soft hearted movies (Nottinghill is one of my favorites), weekend drives, cooking, and tattoos.
I'm looking for that special someone who makes my toes curl.

Here is one of many things that leaves me clueless. Say your in Chapters, Sobey's, the local video store, wherever and you see someone that you find attractive. You meet eye contact and think there is a spark. You gather your courage up and walk over to them and strike up a conversation. If you both think there might be something you go grab a coffee, rollerblading, grab a pint at the local pub or something along those lines to better know that person. Follow the picture.
The online scene should work like that ideally but it doesn't.
You log on to POF and surf through the pictures and find that attraction. But instead of initiating contact you add them as a favorite, hoping they'll take the hint and send a message. Or you spend countless hours, days, or weeks chatting back and forth online before you take the plunge.
My question is this," Has the human society fallen so far to fear the seperate genders? Or are we just using the net as a technique to distance ourselves from true human interaction?
On that note I'm on here to meet people and see if I'm lucky enough to discover the spark when we meet. Please note I only respond to people with a picture.
Good luck in your search.
