*Update* So with a heavy heart, I signed the divorce papers. It's not what I wanted, but who am I to keep a free spirit chained to me? I wish it would've worked out, but some things - no matter how hard you try - are just not meant to be. There wasn't any drama, and my ex and I are still friends, but the romance just fizzled.
So after more than two years of being out of the relationship loop, I find myself starting to look for a companion again. Not a sex partner, not a "one night stand", but a full blown relationship starting with a good solid friendship and then we'll see where it goes from there. I can take it as serious as it can go =) I want to emphasize that I really want to start off with a good friendship. I'm not commitment phobic or anything like that, but it's just my genuine belief that a good relationship (if it should bud into that) begins with a solid friendship. And, no, I'm still not looking into one night stands or casual "hook ups" - it's not my thing.
So that's the preface. The "real self-summary" starts here I guess =P
I'm an open minded individual who would rather discuss, more than argue, accentuate the positives, more than harp on the negatives, and would rather take the scenic route, than settle for shortcuts. People think I'm serious at times, but that's because I've developed a highly developed "filter" that keeps me from saying something that'll make me look like an ass (okay, it only works half the time, but I'm still working out the bugs). I can be sweet without being clingy and sensitive without being effeminate. That isnt to say that I'm all "guy". I mean, i like to cook... or at least make a good attempt at it. I actually love helping my gal-friends shop (within reason - kinda have the draw the line with make up and lingerie, simply because I dont know what most of that stuff is about anyway. ie If I dont recognize it, or understand it, I'm not going to be much help with it).
My clubbing days are over, but I still dont mind going out on the town occasionally. I love to travel, drive, be creative, and spoil my friends. I also dont mind spending a quiet evening at home relaxing... or plotting to TAKE OVER THE WORLD BWAHAHAHAH... ahem...
Hmmm... I should probably get to the other sections...
I am generous, caring, loyal, devoted, loving, and patient.
