As trite as all these ads are they have to cover the basics so let's get that out of the way...
-I'm sociable, some say extroverted, but I feel like a dork when standing alone in a crowd.
-I like reading The Sunday NY Times all day except when football is on - a girl has to have her priorities!
-I dress for work but on weekends I'd rather be in jeans and a tshirt and hiking.
-I live, laugh, love, cry, hug, and all that but at the end of the day I am what I am and that's all that I am... Just me and Popeye! lol
-I am committed to helping two charities overseas and travel to the orphanages my mother setup. This is a part of my travel schedule every year.
-I'm well educated (probably overly so! lol) and well traveled and well read. What does that mean? It means I have had a lot of time on my own to pursue my interests but now I am serious about sharing my life with someone in a meaningful way.
My friends describe me as down to earth, sweet, kind, kind of naive, ebullient, nurturing and adventurous. I can be silly sometimes and I like to be playful. I have a serious side but it's mostly people at work that see that side of me. I'm a voracious reader and I am also writing my second novel. The first one hasn't been published...YET!
And now for the longwinded part that most of you won't bother reading but here goes anyways...
I love cooking all kinds of cuisine and I'm a very active person who enjoys the outdoors. I am looking for someone who is also active and if your idea of a "good time" is channel surfing then we're probably not going to get along. I don't own a tv and I am proud of that fact. Yes, I do know what's on tv but I think there are far greater things to be doing than sitting around being passively entertained by the idiot box. And from the looks of most tv these days there are mostly idiots on it so I'm not missing anything. If I want to know about something that has become part of the cultural lexicon I look it up on Wikipedia. Wikipedia is kind of Cliff Notes for people who can't be bothered actually wasting their time watching inane shows that don't educate or inspire.
If you understand this then you probably "get" where I'm coming from...
Will is like glass - it can be cracked, it can be broken, but will is an amazing thing and in the right circumstances, tempered with the correct heat, it can be given a form, a purpose, and it can be a useful tool. Someone that understands that the consistent application of will is discipline. I try to be consistent in the things that I apply myself to. I'm looking for someone who understands that life is about balance but also finding your passion and enjoying what drives you. If you can describe yourself as an Alpha Male then we'll get along.
As for my "wish list" in a man I have to be honest here... You don't have to be perfect, I'm not perfect, but please at least have your own teeth, a job, a car, and the ability to formulate a sentence without sounding like a Valley Girl and um, like, you know, uh, you know what I mean? LOL And a HIGH sex drive. I'm hoping to find the Yang to my Yin. A playmate. Someone who will keep my secrets. Someone who appreciates this saying... "A woman's highest calling is to lead a man to his soul so as to unite him with Source. A man's highest calling is to protect woman so she is free to walk the earth unharmed." - Cherokee Proverb
What I am looking for is someone who wants to settle down, maybe raise up a family, live on a bit of land, and have a good life. It doesn't have to be perfect. I don't need or want perfect, just a good life with a good man. I try to be a good person, live the word of Christ and my faith is important to me and it is something I am hoping to share with the person that God has intended for me.
I know I'm not everyone's cup of tea and if you've read this far and are interested please drop a line and say 'Hi".
