    What You Need To Know.

    Let me make it clear, I'm just here for the experience, some relaxing time and to possibly make some friends. Not to sex chat or cam or anything else. I enjoy good topics and conversation.

    To keep an eye on someone,

    to see whether he/she is doing okay. The day I'll be satisfied that they are really happy will be the day I'll be long gone.

    I believe that Internet friends are real.

    I love people, and cherish friendship much. At the same time I'm one who enjoys and appreciates different cultures, languages, educational levels, races, human experience communications. I see that friendship achieves all of that simply and profoundly, and internet, especially...

    I can't stress this enough. I'm not here to date, and in definitely not here to talk "inappropriately." Just don't even try it, I already have someone.
