    So even though I'm not really in a position right now to pursue someone in a dating capacity it doesn't stop me from going to a couple of sights and checking out who's there and updating my profile which for now will remain hidden. So I'm looking at profiles and come across a specific phrase in a number of them. They are looking for someone who 'lives life to the fullest'.

    What does this actually mean? Is it like when someone says something meaningless like they enjoy long walks on the beach and they don't live near the ocean? They enjoy films but can't remember the last one they saw? They enjoy traveling but don't go anywhere? Are they actually bored and feel they need someone to enhance their life? Or is it something else?

    I think I have a pretty full life. I may not be the most successful by societies standards but by my standards I very much am. We all have things that define us and we have different definitions that make up who we are but it seems that this would be like setting yourself up to be judged.

    What does living life to the fullest mean to you?

    To be able to do what I want to do. I am living that live now, but have some limitation due to the fact I still have to work . But I am working myself toward early retirement and financial freedom , so I can really say I live to the fullest.

    Living life to the fullest - to me, means finding something you're passionate about (work or play) and going for it! That's what I have always done. I think the antithesis of living life to the fullest would be just sitting home all the time - not getting outside your four walls. Don't let that happen - - - - - - - find something you like doing and do it!

    Living life on your own terms.

    Spending the day doing things you love, enjoying the little things as well as the big. Measuring your successes based on your own measuring stick, not someone elses or societies.

    To me it means going out to and doing what you want. Enjoying your hobbies. It means going to cultural events, and out with friends, and dinners, traveling.

    What it doesn't mean is someone stuck at home on the computer. It means someone who has a life beyond work, or beyond the gym. It means not complaining about what you can't do because your single. It means having friends beyond the bar scene.

    So many get caught up in routines: Work, gym, home. On friday/sat they go out to the same club, same group of guys hanging out in the same corner drinking the same drink. They exists.

    Life is an adventure..go have one.

    To me living life to the fullest is living every day as if it were your last.
