I would describe myself as:
A mystery wrapped up in an enigma. An open book waiting to be close-read. A melody seeking the perfect lyric. In defiance to Shaw's assertion, proof that he who teaches actually can do.
It was Christmas Eve, Babe.”
Dear Santa, I’ve been a good boy in 2018. Not always the best, but for the most part, I’ve been good. So I’m sure you’ll be happy to accommodate me again this year when I ask you to bring me what I’ve been asking you for many years now: Someone special. Someone who is there for me to share the wonderful times as well as the more trying moments in life. Someone into whose eyes I can look on Christmas morn and wish her ‘Happy Christmas’, and mean it with every particle of my being.
Now I know you did your best last year and brought my way a few potential candidates. And I am grateful that you did, and don’t for one moment regret meeting them. For only when two people spend time together can they discover if there is that intangible spark that sets alight a fire between two souls.
That’s it, Santa. And although my faith in you has been rocked from time to time, I’ve never stopped believing, nor will I ever, in your magic. So even if you don’t deliver my request in the morning, I will never give up on you. As I know you will never give up on me.
Creative and passionate about my interests. Keep myself fit, and am always keen on visiting new places and learning about new cultures. A one woman man. Content with my own identity, but more content still when in a meaningful relationship - in the sense that we are all incomplete without a true partner.
My ideal partner would be:
Someone with a positive approach to life. A girl who smiles a lot and understands that the most important factor in a relationship is a shared sense of humour. Added to this, someone who is independent of her partner, both in mind and when it comes to personal interests, but knows too that he is there for her always in the same way that she is there for him.
An addendum to the above: As someone who strives always to be honest, I appreciate honesty as one of the most important of character traits. And alongside honesty, generosity. And by generosity, I'm not simply referring to mutual give and take, but to generosity of spirit. Put plainly: I have no time for game-playing, nor am I interested in the self-indulgent.
My ideal date would be:
When meeting up with someone with whom I've been communicating here for the first time, it would not be a date. This would be a get-to-know the other coffee meeting. If we were both suitably attracted, our second meeting would then be an official date.
