I want to be in a relationship. To find someone to have a connection with. It has been about 2.5 years since my last relationship and it's not due to the lack of me trying. I feel I am a pretty awesome person and have many quality traits. These include: independence, stability, honesty, easy to get a long with, trustworthy, dependable, etc., etc. I have a degree and can hold a conversation. I have many faults as well, though. I trust people easily until they prove me otherwise. I tend to give more than I get, which sometimes leaves me vulnerable. I will try to act emotionally strong until the point I feel comfortable with the other person to let down my guard. When I'm upset, I tend to clam up and not speak until I've calmed down or talked it out.
I like to run, go to sporting events, hang out with friends, sing in the car, watch sappy romantic comedies, go to new places for the adventure of something new, travel, lounge on the couch in shorts and a tanktop, have dinner at my parent's house, play computer games, go out dancing, and get dressed up every once in a while. I love the warmth of the sun and sleeping in on the weekends. I absolutely hate doing dishes, though. Unfortunately when you live alone, the dishes won't clean themselves.
I have a 4 year old girl in my life as well. She's smart and independent. I will keep her out of my dating until I feel the time is right for introductions.
To be honest, there are nights where I feel lonely and wish I could feel special again being a part of someone else's life. Please don't confuse this as depression, however. I am generally a happy person and, no, it is not medicinally induced.
tl:dr-Nobody wants to be alone, right? That's why we're all on here?
