I am Canadian. Born and raised in Montreal and have been in Providence 11 years. I have been divorced since 1998. A long term relationship after that ended over 3 years ago. At my job as an architect/intern I meet a lot of people, but mostly folks who are well ensconced in long term relationships. Have you read tons and tons of these blurbs? Well, most of them say more or less the same thing. Everyone sounds interesting on paper (or cyberspace). It's impossible to know the important things about another person without hearing the sound of their voice, or feeling the energy of their persona. The rest is just information which should be gleaned from meeting, talking, getting to know someone close up and personal. If you are interested in doing that, just let me know.
