Many of the important things I know, I learned on Reddit.
That's probably the biggest thing, so now that that's out of the way, I'll say this:
While I'm by no means opposed to it, I'm not here to actively pursue marriage. What I'm looking for is simply some time with a good woman, wherever it might lead. Real time, that's what I'm interested in. Things I would normally do alone, I would like to share, and make a connection. Simple as that. If I message you, it's because I really hope YOU will respond, not just because I'm on here messaging every pretty face I see. If I message and you don't respond, I might try again. Please don't be offended or creeped out by this-- I'm not a stalker.

Depends on who you are. Like I said, just time. Real time. I'm not into superficial acts of dating or whatever, I just want some time.
