The short version:
Let's meet up and see where it takes us. I want something, something that could pan out, but mostly I just want something happy.
The long version:
I'm looking for someone to spend some serious time with, but not necessarily to settle down. I'd like to start at casual dating, but open to seeing if it leads to something more, or something less. I've done serious relationships, but I've been around, too. Everyone has a story, some history, some baggage. Share it, I'll share mine.
I'm looking for someone who is spontaneous - but spontaneous does not necessarily mean someone who wants to go out all the time. Spontaneous can simply be waking up at 2 am and going on a food run. Or jogging at random times. Or cooking something we've never tried before. Or watching a movie. Basically, I want someone who has their own initiative, like me, but who also would like a companion for randomness, like me. I like adventure, but you don't have to fly around the world or $pend like crazy to find it.
Someone who cares about their appearance - both in terms of fashion and in terms of fitness. You don't have to be a model, but there's just no physical attraction after a certain point. Sweatpants aren't for public, but you don't need to wear 4" stilettos everywhere either. Comfortable, but not lazy. Creative, but but not overdressed.
And I will update this from time to time. Because life is a journey, not a destination, and we adjust the course as we go.
About me (Only one version):
I'm racking up some work experience in the lab where I copyedit research articles and grant proposals while I build up my freelance editing business. My long-term goal is to do freelance full-time.
My family is hugely important to me, and it's important to have someone who understands that family is a priority, but it's not like I hang out with them regularly or anything. I'd like to find someone with similar views on this.
I love going to the movies, I love going out for a casual time on the town, I love getting dressed up, I love staying in. But if you let me in Barnes & Noble... be prepared to drag me away because I can spend a whole weekend there.
I am not sarcastic. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. It boggles me that so many people consider it a bragging right.
