Once you get past the self-deprecating humor, you will soon learn that I'm a raging egomaniac. Nah, that's not true, either. How do you just say that you're a nice, successful guy looking to share his life with his future soul mate? I guess that would do it. My ex-wife and I have been amicably divorced for a year now. I'm past the breakup and excited to meet some good people on here. Friendship is not at all out of the question. It's welcomed. I'm a network administrator for a small company and I'm also currently attending college for web design. I'm not married to my work, and even when I was actually married, I found time for watching movies, trips, and spending time with family. Things are different now, but I look forward to taking some chances and seeing who's out there.
After a 10-year relationship, I may be rusty about this courting stuff, but I'm not jaded by divorce. It's even clearer to me that there's not just one person out there. And even if you get lucky and meet a winner, there's a mountain of work ahead, no matter what. It's knowing that the work is worth it, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which redeems the institution of marriage. I'm not looking to jump into anything, but I'm a firm believer in chemistry and wouldn't turn my back on someone incredible just because I'm recently single. A perfect relationship is one in which the reality is not that far from your fantasy. As long as you have a realistic fantasy, you are bound to one day find your bliss.
