To those that have left messages for me in the last couple of months, thank you. I am sorry I haven't responded, but things have changed for me.
I've met a very nice person, and we have been enjoying each other's company. I am at the point of leaving this site, but I wanted to say thank you to all that I've had contact with, both in receiving and sending messages, and in actually meeting. It's been very exciting, exploring the possibility of finding my one-and-only, and (of course), the disappointment of not getting responses from people I thought would make a perfect match for me.
So keep searching to find that someone special, and that someone that deserves you. Give everyone you meet a couple of chances, because everyone has to worry about protecting themselves until they can trust you. I've found it's very hard to really be yourself when you're meeting an almost-stranger, as we do constantly here.
Not sure where my new relationship is going to wind up, but I'm hopeful. And happy. And that's all I can ask for, for now.
