There is also the love that is a choice, when the magic isn't there and things are tough and you push through the worst for that person you've chosen, I also believe deeply in that love as well, but I won't settle for anything less than both (and you shouldn't either, if either of us did, we'd be short changing the other person as well as ourselves).
Hi there :o) Thanks for looking at my profile! My name's Josh, how do I grab your attention in the few seconds that you're going to give me to do so with? lol Well the things that people would probably say about me first and is that I'm often smiling, I'm typically very pleasant even when my day isn't so great; but that is by no means to say that I'm artificial in fact that's another top word that people use to describe me; genuine. I'm typically the guy that people I know go to, to talk to and confide in, I'm a good listener and I often have really good insight into people or situations that you won't hear from anyone else; what's really nice is I don't try and jam that point of view down your throat as soon as you start talking! lol I'm easy to get along with, even when we disagree about stuff, yet I'm passionate about the things I believe in and very serious in looking at the important things in life. I'm more of a solitary kind of guy, I can be really outgoing in certain groups where I know people, where there's a common interest or where I find a niche to fit into, but sometimes I can be a wallflower too. I like to be social, but I also really like my space and my privacy. I'm an idea person, I'm creative, musical (oh yeah, I sing a lot - lol) and I've found that I do best when I have a woman in my life to pair up with as a partner, someone who I can contribute to and who can encourage me. Someone to believe in and who believes in me. Someone who I can support and understand in their frailty and who will do the same for me. Yeah and we should kind of be blown away by each other, I've experienced that before and there's nothing like it, you shouldn't try and make something limp along like a relationship that doesn't have that wow factor. So yeah, it's hard to find the person right for you, but when you finally do, it's worth it.
I'll go ahead and answer the question that I dread the most on a date, "Why are you still single?" I've avoided listing this hear because it comes off as negative, but then I think it's even less appealing to discuss on a first date, really kills the buzz. Anyway! It's meant as a compliment and I appreciate it, but there's really no easy/comfortable way to answer that and come out shining on the other end, so I'll get it out of the way here. First off I'd like to say that I've had a few serious relationships and when I do fall, I fall hard and when those relationships don't work out, it takes me awhile to recover completely, usually two or three years; do the math, it doesn't take much to eat away the years where my heart has been available (another reason why I'm careful and *yes* picky, because if I'm going to invest myself like that, I want to know that I'm not just wasting time for anyone concerned). Next up, I'd say that it's harder than every to find someone who's compatible with you, unless you're a complete drone who follows a strict party line of thoughts, tastes, etc. This world is becoming more and more diverse simply by way of the immense amount of access we have to information and a variety of stimuli for us to become engaged in. 100 years ago, communities and dating pools were far more monolithic, things have changed drastically, to the point where I think I would appreciate being one of those drones. Have you started to get the idea yet? Then there's the deal breakers, like smoking, tattoos (I can give on that one to a degree, some of them I even like, but for the most part, I prefer natural skin), too many kids, etc. It's not hard to find a reason why you won't work with someone and I'm careful, I would hope that a woman would appreciate that. :)
