Off the market.
October 10, 2012:
Howdy, I recently moved back to Ontario from Alberta at the end of May 2012 to be closer to my family and landed here; looking for friends, dates and fun guys to get to know since I have to start rebuilding my social network. I'm open to meeting new people and seeing where it goes. Friends are always great as well!
“I would much rather be alone and happily single then be with someone who doesn’t appreciate and love me for who I am – no questions asked.” ~Me
I'm looking for a solid guy, my best friend, my teammate, the best connection I could ever imagine etc. etc... I'm not one to serial date and typically stay single for long periods of time; going strong since July 2008. I'm quite capable on my own and most of the major progress I have made in my life I have done when I'm alone, but something’s in life, I believe, are meant to be made with your man... made as a team. There is a huge difference between a "need" and a "want". Nobody "needs" a partner, but I’m not about to pretend I don't "want" one.
“The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.” ~Henry David Thoreau.
I have learnt through trial and error that the only way a relationship can work is if both parties are truly open and honest with each other. If this concept isn't something you understand then please don't bother messaging me. It won’t go anywhere for us :)
Be honest. To the point. Trustworthy. Be dependable, caring, nurturing, and strong in your own way. Live your life with integrity and pride. Have Goals. Be spontaneous, yet reliable. Have a sense of humor; a random and edgy one would be ideal. Lol be silly, but know how to get things done. Like to be active. Be creative in your own way. Be Humble. Be There. Be yourself. My ideal guy would have all of these qualities.
I am well read and educated. I value other people’s point of view even if I don’t agree with them. I volunteer and help out where I can. I can use power tools. I am a do-it-yourselfer but know when I need help. I have a sense of style. I look after myself holistically. I can diagnose and fix a computer. I am a geek. I’m naturally inquisitive and curious. I am reasonably attractive. I have a gym membership I use regularly; ok maybe a bit much; my friends have referred to me as a crazy gym natzi. I am honest. I’m very happy, optimistic and full of life. I am a naturally kind and thoughtful person, but I also stand up for myself and what I believe. I’m a loyal person, but I also need to embrace and enforce my values.
I don't play games. I don't wait 3 days to text or call if I want to talk to you and I don't ignore you when you want to communicate with me. Those are games. Be honest with yourself and be genuine. Text me, call me, invite me out exactly as much as you want to, but don't engineer some strategy cause it is not genuine; I'll know that it’s off and it won’t work for us. I promise you will get a genuine and respectful person from me, I expect the same from my man. Common sense, no?
I've heard over and over, "What's the point? When I like them, they don't like me. When they like me, I don't like them". People who experience this time and time again, and fall victim to it, do not realize that of all the relationship failures they will have in life that it only takes one to change all of that.
We all want hot sex, passion, stability; and want to feel butterflies. I just want it to be with one person. Maybe that's what makes me different: I don't want to be playing the dating game until I'm old and ignored.
If you have the above qualities; don't be shy, message me. If we feel a spark we will take it from there. If not, then we move on to the next candidate.
