Hello! I would like to develop a "serious" relationship with somone FUN! Ironic, right? If you are educated,fit, and thoughtful, that's a good start. I like spending time with people who have something to say, and express themselves skillfully.
My observations about this website, so far: it is a cross-section of the single life in general; with some very nice and sincere people, as well as those who would benefit from charm school; people who are looking for a true partner, and those looking to play the field; people who have a lot to give, and those who are only able to take. Being a free website, it may be skewed toward the latter, or the struggling. There are definitely a lot of people here that I wouldn't encounter in my daily life, and I like that.
I get a lot of "Wants To Meet You" and "Added You As a Favorite" notifications. I don't find those features practical. If you do want to meet, it's best to start with a message ;)
To pre-empt some previous questions from being repeated (entertaining as they were):
Q: What do you do for a living? A: I am fairly private. I'll tell you what I do if it unfolds naturally in conversation.
Q: Will you add me on Yahoo/MSN/Facebook/Skype/Whatsapp/Viber? A: Unless you live in another country, I don't see a big role for IM or webcam in our communication.
Q: Are they real? A: Are you for real, asking a perfect stranger this question? (Now I know that this doesn't only happen on Seinfeld).
Q: Do you want to play paintball? A: No, at least not on the first date. OK, never, not my thing.
My preference is to find a partner who doesn't have children. If you are evolved and are truthfully okay with developing a platonic (non-physical), friendship with me, then your offspring aren't an issue, unless you want me to join you at Chuck E Cheese or Cheesecake Factory or Spaghetti Factory -I pretty much avoid establishments with "cheese" or "factory" in the name :).
