I think we all look for the same in a friend - share adventure, be nice to each other, skip down the street, and smile. So, why is it so difficult ???
Hard to break the ice though. Either we lack courage, or are lazy, or just can not put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Heh ! We can not even do the corners of the puzzle... We can write what we want... but we are still here.
I recognize, and it hope you do also, that this one-dimensional platform - POF - does not convey our real selves... and that a glimpse could be followed by more innovative communication. Take home message: 1-2 line diddle e-mails are good for 1-2 times, ONLY. It is counterproductive and counterintuitive.
If you want to seek... and find... do give me a jingle. Maybe... just maybe... we will make each other pleasantly surprised ! Think outside your ideals. Make each other a priority and NOT a convenience during this introductory time. Think of basic needs/wants, and go from there !
I am seriously looking for a long-term companion for adventure-sharing, and with all the decorations and tinsel ! Timidity, lack of self-esteem, no sense of humor, and a sheltered mind/body will make this formidable... The means are here.. yes they are ! Put your cards on the table and express yourself. No more of this "________ _____ would like to meet you."
