Heya, I'm Arlan. I'd like to tell you all about me, but then what would we talk about when we meet for a drink? I suppose I'll keep it simple. I live alone in an apartment in South Austin. I have lived in the Austin area for about 14 years. For 13 of those years I have worked full-time at a company that provides home care to the aged and disabled. I work as an Information Specialist (it's real, look it up). It's not exactly what I plan on doing for the rest of my life, but I like it for now. I don't have a car, so I ride the bus or walk pretty much everywhere.
I am seeking a long-term relationship. I have not dated much in the past few years, mostly outta fear I suppose, but I feel I have reached a stage in my life that I'm ready to find someone to possibly settle down with and start a small family.
What I'm looking for in a woman is someone who can share some of my interests, but we can also get each other interested a few new ones. I think a good relationship is like a good TV show, it's about good chemistry, a little bit of mystery, a good story, and happy milestones along the way. I believe I have a type of woman I'm most attracted to, but occasionally I meet someone that completely changes that idea. So, as far as a type, I suppose it all depends. I can tell you that I'm not as strict on you as you are on yourself. You don't have to be a genius, or tall, or thin, or athletic, or even have a ton of interests. Some would say that I'm actually a pretty boring guy, and might ask how I don't get bored. Bored, I say, is a state of mind. I can be content doing absolutely nothing. Can you?
Considering the lack of interest from anyone on this site, including those I've emailed, I see no purpose in checking this site once or twice a week. Therefore, I will not be back on this site unless someone emails me, which probably means never. I'd wish you good luck, but I'm not sure I'd really mean it, so adieu.
