I want to meet new people, and I love puppies (anything that borders on being too cute for words, really).
What I am looking for:
I am looking for someone who speaks up, someone who will both nurture and challenge me. I don't find myself as attracted to women who relegate their feelings and desires; I am looking for an equal, not someone subservient or unfortunately timid.
I am looking for a relationship. You should be looking for something similar.
If you want something casual because you're here for six months and you're leaving the country soon, or you want to just take things easy after you just got out of a long-term relationship, etc., no thanks.
I came across this article the other day. You should read it: http://philipbarclay.com/?p=732
