I can honestly say I know exactly what you are going through Macbeth.I have been checking out the net looking around. But to be honest I have just recently decided to just hang back and let things happen TO me and not try and make things happen FOR me. That being said I have now meet two different possibilities.
But friends first Im NOT jumping into anything with my eyes closed.
Take your time and build yourself into the best and happiest man you can be and remember to have fun with it. Life is to dam short to waste even a minute of it.
Peace and Love
