I'm looking for a serious, permanent relationship. I know relationships take time to cultivate. I know they do not happen magically or automatically, and I know they require an significant level of commitment and communication and transparency and work. (I know that's not the most romantic way to put it, but I think that the romance, or the love, anyway, has to be a function of those things.)
I am NOT looking for casual anything. Frankly, I'm not a very casual person, and I am even less casual about that. I know that there's a lot of leering, predatory nonsense on this site, and I want to put as much distance between myself and that as possible.
I'm here because I think the matching algorithm is cool and I like the idea of taking some of the randomness and uncertainty out of meeting people. Also, honestly, I'm dreadfully shy.
