I don't understand the whole dating thing. I know right off the bat if I'm interested in someone, and I don't want them to waste their money on me and take me out to eat if I know I'm not interested in that person.
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.
