Since things are going so well for me, I'm actually considering a serious relationship! My God, it's a miracle people! For those of you who really know me -- this is significant! Anyway, now let's see how things go. It's easy to pick random fish and get laid without any consideration for whether you actually like the person, and entirely a different thing to find someone who fills the entire quota -- beauty, cool, values, goal oriented, and optimistic! It's a big change for me too - because since that's what I'm looking for I've had to alter my entire lifestyle. In other words, I'm not going to go to clubs or bars to meet them - at least I won't expect to, but rather i'm involved in some charitable activities, church events, studying at the bookstore, and other activities that I actually enjoy incorporating into my own life. Can you believe it, I said "life" - I actually have a life! This is proof that miracles do happen, and I just would love for it to continue and to share it with someone equally opportunistic about all these great future experiences. There is nothing worse than meeting a beautiful woman who is negative all the time, or pessimistic. Chin up ladies, I'm looking for someone positive, and who actually likes herself as she is. Keep the complaining to a minimum. That advice works for men too! I will say this: The hard part about looking for a serious relationship is the patience component and the self discipline. It's *real* easy to scare off a great catch, so those two qualities must be exercised inevitably, and constantly at the beginning.
