I like to feel a certain level of warmth towards my significant other. I have not dated for awhile as I was in a relatioship and put my POF account in long term preservation, LOL. Most of my ex-girlfriends tend to stay on as friends - Im even on excellent terms with my ex-wife. I'm not really the sort to take most things too seriously in that the minor things of life take a backseat to the needs of the people in my life. I guess People mean everything and it doesn't come any better than that.

Coffee in a Public Place is always the best way to go.
