Like most of you out there I have been through the failed relationships and come out the other side slightly wiser and slightly more self-protective. Independently, I have built a good life for myself and, while I do truly want a meaningful intellectual and physical relationship with someone, I am consciously wary about compromising the life I have.
I am looking for someone who, like me, has created their own life, and is happy with it, but wants to enhance what they have by adding a new friend and lover; a friend and lover that has no desire to take anything except reciprocated friendship and love, both emotional and physical.
Let us not put a label on it, let us not search for a box to tick or a named place to be. Let us just continue to follow and to trust our instincts - love if it is lovable, leave if it is not. Explore, enjoy, be excited - and maintain an honesty throughout.
