It's not that I don't have much to say or that there isn't much about me, it's just that what can a few words on a screen really say about someone. Probably get a better idea about me from reading the Q&A area. Besides, it seems everyone has or heard about some 'horror story' about how someone seemed one way online but when met in person they were nothing like their profile says. So how much would you believe I write. I can tell you it's all true though. I will say I prefer getting to know someone in person. You meet somewhere quiet and relaxed, share some laughs and stories and see how you get along. Something may or may not come from it but it's a start. Anything worthwhile in life takes some risk and effort and a relationship, be it friendly or intimate, is no exception.
A close friend recently told me that I was being too picky in what I was looking for in someone. Perhaps I am, but when you're looking for someone to have that connection with you need to be sure it's the right person, right? To find the right gem, you have to go thru a lot of work and muck to find it, but when you find that gem it's more precious than anything. Can I describe exactly what I'm looking for? About as well as describing a color to someone that could see before but is now blind. Sure I have a ideal image - Intelligent and witty, adventurous, bit sarcastic, open minded, 5'9" Red haired lady with an irish brogue that identifies as a submissive when it comes to BDSM. However, it is really just a balancing all of a person’s traits. Some have to be there and some are not so important.
A little note about the BDSM comment above…I know myself well enough to know that any relationship I have beyond friendship, which I’m always open to and looking for new friends, will have to be with someone open to or already involved in that lifestyle. If you don’t know what I mean by the BDSM lifestyle, feel free to ask. All I’ll ask in return for explaining and telling you about it is not to be judgmental about it.
