During this process i did not pursue dating anyone and have not dated during that entire period until it was all over. I have dated twice after my divorce was final, all chose different paths. I have no shame about the person i am, my past relationships, or my life situation. I like myself and i think that i am a real, neat overall individual. my thinking is i have tried the casual meet someone i work with, or do you know someone approach to dating and have been disappointed my whole life...epic fail. about a 3 years ago i had a complete epiphany about life and my place in it and have benefited completely psychologically.

Welcome back, i am a dynamic, intelligent, insightful person who really enjoys all people and all of their quirks, the ladies included. i look forward to the unknown and this includes knowledge, relationships with people, work, the "future", and love and its place in my life. i have learned what i have always known and is my personal creed, "do not settle". i have done so in the past and it hasn't ever worked out for me and will not work out for pretty much everyone in the world ....ever.
Loneliness is tough. we all want the best for ourselves and if we are good people we want the best for everyone else as well. i wish everyone that reads this the best, even if i am not your answer, i hope that you find this...i know i do. ok, i want to close this self summary with my view on successful love...and this sets the tone as well...you and the person you love must EQUALLY be into each other...not one more than the other. if this is not achieved, love will not last. this is what if have learned to be true, and this is what i strive for and want more than everything. there is so much more i want to share with you but that's the whole point isn't it, whether or not you're into me and i am into you. thanks again.
