I believe that friendship is the most important element of any good relationship. It takes time to learn to trust and to be open. I am willing to take that time, but prefer to spend more time in the real world and less time on the computer. While having a few common interests is a good thing, it is not a requirement that we share every spare moment. I am looking for a man who likes to talk, but enjoys the quiet times as well; someone who would be interested in a bit of travel and someone who might enjoy just being with me. My interests include a wee bit of walking, visiting with friends, board games, and good movies. I am a good listener, and enjoy the occasional night out. I like to laugh and have a good time. I expect that getting to know one another will come slowly over time--but I am willing to make that time. I have been told that I am a somewhat attractive woman with a lovely smile. The right man will bring that smile to my face every day.
