Dating is different when you get older. You're not as trusting, or as eager to get back out there and expose yourself to someone.
I am just hoping to meet someone who can discuss the world around them, is looking for more than just a date, and will cuddle on the couch and laugh with me. Will you be my partner in crime? If the answer is yes then message me and let's get lost together.
However successful you are, there is no substitute for a close relationship. We all need them.
