It's time to meet someone with similar ideas about life, going in the same direction who also wants to meet a special friend and see if it leads to a deeper and more meaningful relationship. Here is one thing I've learned from POF, not all of who we meet here will go in that direction, perhaps it will be someone to share just a new friendship and spending time together or just someone to show us who we are not looking for in a relationship. It pays be selective, even if it means not being in a relationship.
It is not what we do together that will be most important, but of we can enjoy each others company doing nothing, just quietly relaxing and talking with each other. Sure I like to be outdoors and active, camping, hiking or just sitting at the beach or a mountain stream.
What we do to develop a spiritual lifestyle, individually as well as together is going to be the biggest factor on where a relationship will go in the long term. I have spent years learning, growing and improving on Who I Am as a person, becoming that person happy with Who I Am and ready to share myself with someone who is also at that point in her life. The only baggage to carry now is when going on vacation.
Sex, is not an endpoint, but a new beginning into a more intimate relationship.
I have no children and am not looking for anyone at this time with children living at home with you, especially the 20+ ones. I want to be able to spend quality time with you first without the distractions.
My long term plans are to travel the Country in an RV for an extended period of time. I feel that is a wonderful expression of the Freedom which I desire.
As my Mentor shares with us "I know where I want to go in life, now to find the one to join me on the Journey"
Peace to You
OK, Mini Rant :)
So I get a reply from a message to someone on here. We have messaged back and forth a couple days and I could still not know one thing about this person. Here is why?
It is tough to get to know someone to see if we want to meet or not. This is not Twitter or Facebook or Texting, Please use full sentence or even (Gasp!) whole paragraphs when replying to questions. Unless you are a comedian, one liners don't go over well. (just couldn't resist)
You will get what you put into this process.
I like to keep it casual at first. Let's meet for coffee and see how well we connect. First meetings should be stress free, no pressures, no expectations.
