Stuff about me:
*I have an awesome sense of humor
*I'm a great listener
*I enjoy having a conversation just to learn from someone else, or about them
*I love the beach, and fun trips
*I occasionally write short stories, though many more never make it to paper.
*I like both giving and receiving back and massages.
*I love to make people laugh and have a good time. Some nights this might mean going out, but it just as easily could be staying in and watching a movie.
I am looking more for long term dating, with the intent of a lasting relationship. I'm looking to meet someone who is affectionate, intelligent, and independent. I've been dating for several years since my divorce, and I find that while I may enjoy spending time with friends at the bar, I really want something more from a partner. I hope to meet someone with interests and goals of their own. Someone who is looking for a relationship because they want one, not because they feel they need one to be complete. Preferably someone who isn't into dating games like making someone wait for them when they're ready now, or stupid tests like having their friend make a pass at me. Both have happened. I just want someone who will try to be my equal. Give when I need it, and honestly tell me if I have failed to notice when they need the giving in return. I'm not perfect, but I can be amazing when you least expect it.
