Ok, about me. I recently moved to Ohio, from WV. I handle environmental and regulatory affairs for a large oil and gas company, so I've been spending all my time in OH. I have a great job which treats me very well, and I work very hard. However, I'm definitely ready to make room for someone in my life. My friends say I'm always good for four things - favors, smiles, laughs and advice. (Yeah . . I know, I'm the perfect friend.) I'm a big Mountaineer fan. I like being outdoors, going to concerts, and cooking, and all kinds of other stuff. Quite frankly, I'm all over the place with my hobbies. Since I bout a house with a good bit of land, I've been busy spreading out and getting back in touch with my DIY skills.
I guess I can say I want more out of my life . . . more than just ordinary, but don't confuse that with a disdain for simplicity. There are certain things in life (love being one of them) that are worth striving and struggling for; the real key is to finding that person who makes it feel effortless.
Life in many ways is a like structure, the higher you want to build it, the sturdier the base has to be. Now, the foundation needs a minimum of three pillars for stability. Ourselves, we are obviously one pillar. Friends and family are another, but that's only two. The third pillar is that person who completes us. That person to walk through life with. The best friend who you just makes you smile like the rest of the world isn't in on your inside joke. Maybe I'll find her today, maybe I'll wind up looking for her for the rest of my life; but, at least . . well at least I know what I'm looking for.
On a first date I would go for lunch or dinner, nothing too intimidating. Just a chance for two people to get to know each other, talk, see if they have chemistry. Then probably go for a walk or do something to change the setting, but still be comfortable.
