Hi. I am looking to connect with some fun, extroverted people for friendship, eventually more. I firmly believe the best relationships are formed from friendships. I am looking for more with the right person. But, if there's no chemistry, I'm always open to making new friends. I am selective with people I bring into my world. So, I will want to email or talk before agreeing to meet in person. After all, if you can't keep a conversation going online, I don't think it'll be any better in person.
I like to be active and have fun but I also have a serious side with goals and responsibilities. I want someone who is motivated. I work full-time in the aerospace industry and have a 5 year plan. I am finishing up my Bachelor's degree, graduating in June and am in the process of deciding on a master's program. Party buddies are fun, but depth is more important. I hope to find someone who enjoys fine dining and theater, as well as camping, boating and hiking...not just gaming and television. I can be shy at first. So, please be a great conversationalist and have a sense of humor. I find nothing more attractive than a gentleman who's attentive, outgoing and confident while living honorably and without drama. I am looking for positive influences only please.
If you dislike animals, then please read no more...I am not what you seek. I am an animal lover. I have cats. My pets are part of my family, not disposable. My pet peeve is people that think that owning a pet is not a lifetime commitment.
If you are interested in a response, please don't ask me something that I have already told you in my description, or send me a generic response that could have been mass generated to everyone on this site. I've taken the time to write this so we don't waste each others time. If you don't have time to read it or respond thoughtfully, we already have a communication problem. I understand you're playing the numbers game with the generic, so I don't feel bad in not replying. And, my last request...please include a picture...I've shown you mine...now it's your turn...I do try to get back to everyone who read my above requests. Thanks for dropping by! I can't wait to hear from you!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I prefer to think that I'm meeting an online friend. It takes off a lot of pressure that I'd feel if I considered it a date even if it is just semantics. Hmmm....after we chat online a bit...I might be up to meet somewhere public. Something short and sweet...maybe lunch or drinks...enough time to see if we connect...If we do, we can meet up again. If not, we haven't invested too much time and can gracefully move on.
