I am an independent person who has her own life but is looking for someone to share it with. I don't need anyone to provide for me, I need someone to be my partner, team mate, my best friend. I am not trying to find my identity in someone else, I know who I am and I know what I want.
I believe that it is important for two people in a relationship to have their own individual interests and activities but shared likes are key. That common ground that will weave two lives together.
While I am independent and enjoy my own set of hobbies, when it comes to a relationship I am an all-in kind of girl. Many friends and family members see this as a fault, you know that "putting all your eggs in one basket" sort of thing. I guess I can see what they mean. But I'm not wired that way. I feel the only way to truly see if something is right is to give it my all, not in the overbearing kind of way, I just focus the relationship building part of my life 100% on one person. I am not sure if I am expressing myself right here. I guess what it comes down to is, I am not afraid to commit, I am very loyal and I understand that relationships aren't always easy. I am not the type to just give up. That being said, relationships do involve two people and I will cut my losses and move on.
While I can't always get away for multi day trips on a whim, I enjoy a last minute trip up to the mountains for a hike, launching the canoe and paddling up some secluded inlet, or saddling up the horses and heading off into the woods. Yes, I enjoy the outdoors and you should too!
