I don't believe in mistakes. It's the choices we make, and the paths we choose to follow, that make us who we are.
So here I am. I've heard that this forum for meeting new and interesting people works well but I am not 100% sold on the idea of meeting a significant other on here as of yet.
What can I tell you about myself? Well, first of all, I have a great family (small as it may be) and a great core group of friends and I'm pretty happy with where I am in life. May not be exactly where this life could lead at this point, but it's comfortable none the less, and it works. Sure there is always room for improvement, but as the old saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"! Guess you could say that life is good!! I am very independent, honest (sometimes to a fault) and roll with the punches. If life hands you lemons, take it to the next level and make some lemonade. This voyage we all share is certainly too short to sweat the small stuff. A motto that has recently become a focal point in my life and one taken to heart! (Thank you Lee-Anne :))
What am I looking for on this site? Well a relationship is obviously the final chapter or ultimate goal? But again, that may be hard to interpret because everyone has different views on what a "relationship" is. I guess, to simplify it, I'm hoping to meet that one rare soul with whom I can enjoy spending time, do new, fun and exciting things with, all the while getting to know each other EXCLUSIVELY. I guess, what I am truly searching for is just what everyone else on this site is seeking out, a little bit of HAPPINESS. That one special friend, who if given the chance, can make me stop in my tracks and wonder where she has been all of my life. A woman who is self confident, intelligent and has a mind of her own. Can think on her feet yet is open to new thoughts, new ideas, and willing to share her life and dreams. Someone who is young at heart, yet a bit sarcastic, and willing to laugh, even if it is at themselves. Someone who doesn't fall into love too soon but is also not afraid of that dreaded "C" word: "COMMITMENT". I am loyal and ideally, I would love to meet someone to share this journey with, but understandably, that comes with time, exploration and friendship. You just never know who you will come across on this voyage and it's one of the mysteries of life. I would enjoy the prospect making the most out of time with that special someone, but I'm also very independent and enjoy times apart. I am a strong believer in honesty and integrity. I do what I say, and say what I mean. The one true mantra that more should grasp as a personal moral code. I am very open, honest and happy to answer any (almost ;) questions you may have but I would expect the same in return. I'm not interested in pursuing endless chit chat on this site, but obviously it would be a beginning and you have to start somewhere. Ultimately, eventually meeting face to face would be the ideal situation because you are able to tell so much more from body language than from a few keystrokes. Sure we may not all be "matches" per say, but life is far to short yet there is always room for more friends. If you have ever been on the YOUTUBE website, seen the "Free Hugs Campaign" and video and it touched you on some kind of deep emotional level, then you will have some idea of what I am about. If you can classify friends/relationships into three different categories: A REASON-A SEASON-A LIFETIME, and truly understand the differences between them, then again, we would be on the same page so to speak.
If these short examples pique your interest enough for you to try and contact me, it is a beginning and the rest will unfold as it should, over time. Got to leave something to explore right?
Give me a shout at your convenience and I wish you all the best with your continued searches for whatever it may be you are searching for.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well, hopefully by this time, we have chatted a bit and decided to find out if that elusive "spark" is there. Something simple and non restrictive, like a coffee or maybe a walk along one of the local beaches or lakes in the evening to enjoy the sunset and an ice cream. As our first up close and personal visual encounter should be as non-stressful as possible, that might be a good place to start.
