Hi, guise! It's Lev again! And I've got a question for you guise that I'd wonder if you could enlighten me with your opinion. When I was about fourteen years old, when all my other friends started to explore the romantic side of life, I told myself this: "Don't date. Not because you're too young, Lev, but because you're not ready." And I really wasn't. I would only date when I KNEW I was ready to date. So skip about six years in the future to the present. I'm twenty-one, and I asked myself this today: "Are you ready to date?" And I thought and thought and pondered and pondered and wondered and wondered until I concluded that Yes! I am physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically ready to find romance. However, this is where I'm finding trouble. Most, if not all of my friends, already have had so much experience dating, that they know what they look for. And I wondered the same--as it turns out, I don't know what I really want. I've been set up on a handful of blind dates, some with men and some with women and they all went SPLAT. No bueno, mi amigo. No bueno. So I've been doing more thinking and pondering and wondering what it is I'm looking for and I drew a blank. So here I am now saying, "Let's ask other people!" I'm wondering what you look for in a partner. And how do you go about it? And is there any advice you think you could give me? I don't care if you're younger or older, male or female, naive or experienced. What do you think? I know it's kinda vague or nebulous, all this is. However, I can't seem to articulate what I feel into words right now. So I hope you understand! I look forward to some well thought out answers.
