First off, I'm very laid back, easy going and possess what I think the necessary tools to be an amazing boyfriend to that special guy.
Yes, I'm a bit old fashioned - I love the idea of dating someone for some time before having sex. I think sex is better when you connect with some emotionally and not just physically. Can you imagine both of those things combined?
I'm looking for that guy - the one you've waited your entire life to meet. The love that shines through and people recognize. A special connection that can't be broken.
Personal experiences with guys have been good but not great and trouble meeting the quality. I need someone who I can be proud of in every sense of the word. Someone who I can take home to meet the parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins. Also, my family is "interesting" just a warning for you! =)
Its not entirely about looks, education, money, job, financial status for me - we unfortunately live in a society where everything is driven by the above but I like to take it back to the basics, the good old fashion romance. Having someone you can just be attracted to physically and emotionally is where my heart is. No, that doesn't mean don't have a job, present yourself properly and have your sh*t together - because those things do matter on some level.
My standard of dating and long term relationships is followed by one simple word - monogamy. No, I will not share you or think to share you or further down the road open up what some might call a relationship but I call a cop out to go sleep around.
Last, if you're one of those guys that is just too busy to put forth some effort in getting to know me - you would want to move right along. Relationship is a 2 way street and can't have it going down just one way - effort is duly noted and appreciated.
P.S. I've not had someone to call my boyfriend, so my mojo might be a little off but bare with me. Yes, I'm not so experienced in the dating sense but with time I can learn and allow me the opportunity to prove myself.
