I am a recent transplant from North Carolina. I wasn't raised in the South but I did enjoy my time there. If you can find a progressive pocket of the South you're in for a real treat. There is a rare combination of humility, honesty, earnestness and frivolity.
I'm open to meeting new friends or dating. It would be fantastic if something long-term developed, but I would consider this a success if I made one new friend (actual friend, not "friend"), or at the very least don't encounter the Craiglist killer.
Physical attractiveness is important but I think the most attractive people are those who accept themselves. Ultimately, I would like to meet someone who can be at peace in a relationship because they have found peace with themselves. If you think this description fits you, or what I wrote resonates with you, then I would love to hear from you!
