where I am supposed to be
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
nope nada nothing
You should message me if
You find me intriguing. If you want to "like" me, reach out and send me a message! (I cannot see likes; it would be sad if we missed the connection of a lifetime!)

I believe in the melding of true love, partnership and friendship: I know couples who have exactly that, and it's a wonderful thing. Knowing someone has your back; playing and laughter; taking delight in each other's company; having someone to go out with and to come home to; experiencing the freedom that accompanies an amazing relationship; being in the process of building an awesome life with a partner; offering each other support when needed...that's what I am looking for.

Looking for a life partner, not a hook-up or a boy-toy. No judgement if that's your thing, but that's not me.
