Ultimately looking for a girlfriend to last my lifetime. Must be independent but willing to engage in shared experiences ideas and emotions. I don't have any problems with commitment, but I want to start with friendship. Life is short, so I try to be careful not to get diverted by things that aren't going anywhere. But if we are going to give it a try, let's do it with some intention. I like to feel tenderness and passion with a balance of intellect, emotions, and physical. To me, finding a compatible person on this site is like finding a needle in a haystack. Yet I think it's worth giving it a chance. If I have contacted you, it means there is something that I find interesting in your description of yourself. If you contact me I will send you my picture.
It says on POF in this box that first date is 'optional'. That's kind of obvious. I am just interested in opening up conversation and see where it leads. Talk on the phone to start maybe, then meet at a cafe perhaps, then whatever we decide
