I am a passionate person; I don't believe in doing anything without
a full, dedicated effort. My philosophy in life is to live without
regret - a regret is a learning experience taken for granted.

with my feelings, opinions, philosophies, etc. I thrive on
conversation, and enjoy the company of others who do also. We can

I’m a hopeful romantic. Hopeless sounds very defeating. I'm not
interested in dating folks with an expectation that it will end,
and I don't know why people bother expiration dating. Ideally, the
next relationship will be the one that becomes a partnership - for
life. If you're definition of long term is six months to a year,

of as we grow up and what is truly important.

Probably that men frequently misunderstand me. Yes, I'm completely
serious when I say here that I am looking to meet someone and
settle down - marriage (and not the open kind) - but that doesn't
mean I'm proposing to you when I tell you that, so no need to panic
and run. Though it's not really private, or I wouldn't state it

...you're someone looking to make something real, not a silly,
short-lived relationship. Obviously we don't know at first glance
that someone is our future partner, but my ideal match is at least
