Don't be in a rush to find someone, even after some time you might feel a bit desperate and latch on to the first one to show you some attention. Don't fall into that trap. You must remember that when couple first meet up, it's all nice and pleasant, each one trying to make an impression on the other. Then in time things slip into there normal routines and then the real truths start to show. True love takes time to find and you'll find more likely when you're not looking. Always try to be good friends first and foremost, because if you can't develop a long friendship first then what chance of any lasting relationship? Your partner should always be your best friend, if not then what are you doing together? There are plenty of kind, decent and polite men and women out there. It makes no difference what nationality you are, in fact that can be the spark that starts everything. I'm a Canadian living in North Wales and married to an English girl, so do have experience first hand. I do wish you well in you search and your future happiness.
