As I have grown up I have begun to open up more about life and have been able to embrace who I am completely, the positives and the not as positives. I am a strong woman who understands the importance of being able to take of myself, however I am ready and open to meeting someone to share my time with. I don't necessarily need to be with someone instead I would like to be with someone. When it comes to a relationship I feel its important to maintain your independence and not give up who you are. To me what makes a successful relationship is 2 people who are able to spend time together without necessarily having to fill the air with meaningless talk.,While conversation is important and nice, a relationship is strongest when 2 people are able to be together in silence and be completely comfortable without the nagging feeling that something needs to be said. I love life in all its entirety and I definitely take advantage in what it has to offer, especially since I have been thrown quite a few hurdles in my life. Alright moving on.. :) I am definitely a more introverted woman.Not that I'm shy, far from it. It also doesn't mean I am boring, in fact I am quite open to new experiences. Its just that as much as I love to go out, I enjoy spending more time in an intimate setting. When it comes to the guy I am looking for I feel he would need to balanced leaning more toward the energetic side. While I am somewhat of a free spirit, there are moments when I could use a reminder that life doesn't need to be taken so seriously. As I am writing this I am realizing how contradictory I might seem, but the fact is I am quite multidimensional and as much as I would like to put my personality in a box, it's just not possible. I am who I am; adventurous yet a homebody, outgoing yet shy, independent yet ready for love.
