In Australia, men typically ask out women for dates by text messaging. A recent study revealed that 50% of Australians agreed it was permissible to request a date via a text message but not acceptable to break up with them this way. Flirting while texting, dubbed flirtext, was more likely to be done by girls after a relationship was started. A survey of newspaper readers suggested it was time to abandon the "old fashioned rule" of men paying for the first date, based on women's greater earning capacity. A dating show on TV features three couples who live under one roof, but who can only have contact in a "specially created dark room", and the show is scheduled to be hosted by Miss Australia model Laura Dundovic.
I want to widen my circle of friends. I\\\'m looking for romance too. My children are grown and gone, so I\\\'m free as a bird to travel and experience life. I\\\'m interested in seeing more of Tasmania. I have a 6 year plan to travel to Eastern Canada, and possibly New Orleans. It interests me to take a European River cruise. Just for now I would like a companion to go to events and watch DVDs .
Relationships in which dating is undertaken by two people, who choose their dates without parental involvement and sometimes carry on clandestine get-togethers, has become increasingly common. When this leads to a wedding, the resulting unions are sometimes called love marriages. There are increasing instances when couples initiate contact on their own, particularly if they live in a foreign country; in one case, a couple met surreptitiously over a game of cards. Indians who move abroad to Britain or America often follow the cultural patterns of their new country: for example, one Indian woman met a white American man while skiing, and married him, and the formerly "all-important relatives" were reduced to bystanders trying to influence things ineffectively. Factors operating worldwide, such as increased affluence, the need for longer education, and greater mobility have lessened the appeal for arranged marriages, and these trends have affected criteria about which possible partners are acceptable, making it more likely that pairings will cross previously impenetrable barriers such as caste or ethnic background. Indian Americans in the U.S. sometimes participate in Singles Meets organized by websites which happen about once a month, with 100 participants at each event; an organizer did not have firm statistics about the success rate leading to a long-term relationship but estimated about one in every ten members finds a partner through the site.
Looking for a female who is fit and exercises regularly. Not a control freak and has her own life and friends. She is not after a relationship but a good friend who she can call when she needs to have fun and talk about things that she can't with others. She likes me to visit during the day as she doesn't want a person hanging around all the time as she has her own life

My ideal partner would be independent within themselves, emotionally and financially as I am. You would be caring and honest and like to have a laugh! You would make me smile when you message and I would look forward to each time we see each other. We wouldn’t need to live in each other’s pockets but look forward to spending time together, hopefully having new experiences!
