I want to meet someone that doesn't play games and is willing to take time to get to know me. It takes me some time to warm up to people before they really get to know me. Of course I would be taking the time to know you too. After a few times of hanging out or even just chatting or talking on the phone hopefully we'd be comfortable enough to be ourselves and not worry about being judged; that is why I sometimes just prefer to be friends first. I really don't think just 1 or 2 times of hanging out is enough for me to really start to get to know someone. I'm in it for a relationship or a good friend not just a fling. It would be nice to know after the initial fun and excitement has passed that someone would still miss me and is looking forward to seeing me again. I don't know, just simple little things. Even if it doesn't work out I'm mature enough to take a no and still be able to be friends. Seriously, if someone is a great person, what's wrong with being friends with them?
I really don't ask for much, I just want someone that has a little in common with me, but will try to understand and is willing to make compromises or work things out. I will definitely try to do the same. I don't expect anyone to totally understand me, but at least they should try a little bit.
