I am an army brat who isn't afraid of breaking a nail or a sweat and I am proud that I can find solutions instead of being caught up in minutia. Prior planning prevents problems. I am a homeowner who is addicted to the fix it shows on TV - flipping, crashers, etc - and can't wait to implement some of what I have seen. I love the thought of putting a little money, imagination and elbow grease into a home and reaping the rewards of my time and energy. So far I have tackled the front yard landscaping and replacing the floors. Nothing like the feeling of accomplishment when you step back from something you've put your blood, sweat and tears into.
I was an athlete in college and although I am not in the same shape as then, I have recently recommitted myself to getting back into shape - healthy, not skinny minny as I like having curves. Am getting back into the gym on a regular basis and am loving the feeling as I walk out, sweaty and drained from a good workout. With blood pumping tunes on the ipod, time flies by.
I prefer someone who has a little meat on their bones and is taller than me. I'm not excessively tall, but it's nice to look up into someone's eyes and be held by someone who can wrap their arms around me instead of the other way around.
My ideal man would be someone I can depend on. Someone who would be there after a long day and then challenges me to do and be more. I don't want to ever doubt his commitment or fidelity to me as monogamy is very important to me. My parents are divorced and I want someone who wants what I do - forever after - knowing that a relationship is a living entity and takes work and communication. He shouldn’t take himself too seriously and isn't afraid of a woman who is independent.
He should be a co-conspirator to life with a good sense of humor. I am more attracted to men who can make me laugh with sarcasm or wit and who enjoy the moment for what it is. Laughter is the best medicine and you can't be in a bad mood when you are laughing. I love to laugh and when something goes wrong, I try to see the funny in it. Don't get me wrong, it is a struggle sometimes, but I would much rather laugh than cry or yell. And by doing that, my mood stays positive and the "hardships" seem bearable. Besides, I am a big goober and I inherited all the corny jokes my dad says. Much to the delight of children and the torture of adults. Humor transforms a person - a smile, a sparkle in their eye.
