Meet Meredith. She loves love. Ever since she was small she dreamt of one day meeting the man of her dreams. She just knew he'd be tall, dark and handsome. He'd be charming, funny, kind, successful and madly in love with her. When they came together at the end of each day. they would embrace, kiss passionately, and spend the rest of the night talking all about their day, their hopes and dreams, and each other. When she became a teenager she discovered romance novels and Hallmark movies. She was hooked and still is. Now that she's in her thirties, and still single, she finds it a bit harder to endure her romantic ideals but she will not give up hope! Surely there is a gorgeous man out there who loves to talk about his feelings, monogamy, loves to buy little presents for no reason, would totally get her sense of humor, loves to hear about all of her thoughts and interests, loves cats, can cook, makes a good living, is motivated, is well traveled, is mildly adventurous, is STD free, funny, smart, kind and wears his hat backwards when he's doing yard work. Surely. The timing just hasn't been right yet...
