Hmnn, the least I'd settle for when choosing a potential date.....More often than not I've made it a policy to find someone who is frankly out of my league. It's not difficult and (as my marriage showed) when it works, the payoff is huge. I remember a cousin who, after meeting Heather for the first time, took me aside and asked: "Honestly Paul, how did YOU....?". We laughed and laughed.

(quote) Richard-999453 said: What would I settle for? Small agreements. Such as we agree to correspond with each other
Then we agree it is ok to ask questions to obtain additional information about each
other or to clarify something. We agree to call each other.
To eventually agree to see each other, even if it meant distance travel. I visit you and
while with you, get to see you area and vise versa.

All small steps that get us closer to each other. At some point we decide if we want to be
a couple or not (courting).

Richard your the knight-errant so many are waiting to knock on their door biggrin thank you that is most admirable coming from a gentleman ....

A yes from my request?

There is dating, then Dating, the courting, etc.

i can do the first- casual " going out" with no intentions. Heck this would be great actually. I haven't really be out with a member of the opposite sex for dinner since well it's been five years I would guess. So a yes to my invitation would be a minimum.

Genie said "you only mention the small agreements ... that would be civil"

As usual you leave me scratching my head saying "Whaat"

All major agreements begin with first agreeing on the small supposedly insignificant
stuff. If there is no agreement on the supposedly insignificant stuff. Why continue?
move on? .
Ones ultimate goal is?? What?? to meet her or him?? marriage?? But how to reach
that goal is the question. First get them to respond, if none it is over, But if they do
then to get them interested in continuing to correspond and it keeps building.

I would never say to some (one who all I know about them is their picture (or not))
and what they wrote. I would never say. "I am madly in love with you, Marry me"
I would, humm! naw it won;t work. But maybe if we got to know each other first.
Small steps.
I hope it is now clear as mud.
God Bless You and please continue your little comments I love them







was it Confucius who said "A long
journey begins with the first step" or maybe it was "with a small step" At any
rate, meeting someone who may eventually be that some one special begins with
small steps.
Maybe you did not like the pictures but enjoyed the profile. So you ask a simple question
about the profile and hope they answer. If not go on. But if they do, then the next step
is how to keep their interest in you. That is another small step.
Did I even come close to answering your question??

Thanks for the kind words. I wasn't actually being self-deprecating or metaphorical - I'm just literally not a good baseball player.
