Ready to settle if it feels right but not for the sake of being in a relationship. Better to be single, love yourself, respect others and enjoy the search than to settle for second best. The great thing about dating (if you have the right attitude to it) is that, in many cases, it can result in something good - be it a relationship, a fling or a friendship. Or in some cases, all three.
The more favorable character assessments from those who know me well, include.. Open minded, honest, unconventional, creative, brave, kind and adventurous. However, I've also been called opinionated, untidy and over analytical so there's your balance.
In a woman I like a challenge. I am attracted to those who are confident, witty, sexy and smart. I value the company of the well travelled and educated - creative is always a bonus. I'm not too fussed about nationality, providing there is enough life experience to keep a conversation interesting. However, I generally prefer western women as conversation and banter and high on my list of requirements.
