Consider this - who writes, who answers personal ads?

Hopeful to find a best friend and companion,
Real people, who are tired of waiting on chance,
Initiate actions to seek out that special someone.

Sincerely believing that a life shared is a life enhanced,
They reveal their interests, their thoughts, their dreams.
Yesterday's strangers, they are today's friends in discovery.

Learning from past experiences that mind games have no winners,
Exchanges of conversation are honest and straightforward;
Appreciation and respect for one another's feelings are mutual.

Open-minded to a different approach for exploring new relationships,
Real people have met and begin to consider the road ahead.
Yes, with time, they may choose to walk this avenue together.

AMBRESS, Nov. 1992
