Yes, ultimately I'm looking for that once-in-a-lifetime, deeply passionate relationship based on mutual respect & admiration that can actually be sustained 'til the end... but I'd sure like to enjoy some warm, comfortable fun & companionship along the way! I've earned my nickname, but that doesn't mean I'm not a romantic! Quite the opposite, in fact. I love to laugh, but really appreciate intelligent humour. I'm not high maintenance - I'm thrilled by a really thoughful gesture more than a gift. I do not like to nag, bitch, play games or fight, and don't have the patience for people who do. I put great value in respect (of all sorts), fairplay, common courtesy & manners, but don't mistake me for a prude or narrow-minded! I'm a bit of a hermit & can be all too content to curl up at home, but with some really good suggestions & some coaxing, I can get out there and have a lot of fun! I'm independent & getting back to a point in my life where I can try new things and have a few adventures - I'd just prefer to have someone to share these with!
