I am a very kind and caring person. I always want to be a positive presence in the lives of my friends and family. I think I have reached a point in my life where I truly take responsiblility for my life and my decisons. The simple things mean the most to me. I am a very giving person. I am not materialistic and do not care that much about what other people think. I am more concerned about how I feel about myself. I think honesty and integrity are two very important characteristics, I enjoy all types of people and try to take something positive from everyone whose life touches mine. I would enjoy spending time with someone who has some common interests, but I would also like to meet people who can bring new experiences and ideas to my life. I often need people in my life who will inspire me to walk outside my comfort zone. I think it is not so much about what you do but who you do it with... I respect people who are honest and genuine. The people I am drawn to the most have a good sense of humor. I love to laugh and I try to see the humor in most situations. I also like people who value communication. I am attracted to people who are intelligent, upbeat, laid back and easy-going; but are motivated and adventurous. I want to be with someone who has my best interests at heart. That being said, I have learned that relationships are more about what you can bring to someone elses life, rather than having "unrealistic expectations" about what they can do for you. I do believe chemistry is super important. I can be friends with many people, and value them tremendously. However, for me, an intimate relationship requires chemistry. My love languages are words of affirmation and physical touch. I desire a relationship with someone who truly respects me for the person I am, and I will always try my best to show the same respect for them.
