Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are honest, genuine, and confident but not arrogant--if you
value your health, can have an intelligent conversation, always
look for ways to improve, you are secure in who you are, and are
looking for a meaningful connection through which you can both give
(of yourself) and take. I am not necessarily looking for someone to
marry tomorrow. I am looking to make friends, people who can
challenge me and expose me to places and things which I would not
otherwise experience. Should there be the potential for more,

making friends too. I look forward to reading your message should
this resonate with you.
