I'm at a point in my life where I'm not interested in dating or being with guys who don't have some of the basic values and interests that I do. If you do drugs, stop reading.
I love to read, learn, and be social. I used to be a workout nut, and I'm easing back into it after a couple years hiatus. That and time outside are great for my soul. I love roller blade-ing (I know this isn't how it's spelled, but how do you spell it anyway??), which means I'm possibly stuck in the 90's :P I also enjoy spending time by lakes, and would love to go fishing someday. Can you believe I've never been?? I'm definitely a family oriented person and enjoy the commotion that comes along with a full household of people, whether they are relatives or friends. Sunday dinners at my parents are the best! I've got a helper personality and that tendency has its pros and cons. Compassionate is one of the first words I would use to describe myself. But you gotta take care of you, too. I enjoy editing, eating ice cream, and hard work. I love the challenge of multi-tasking and thrive under pressure. I'm taking fiddle lessons because I feel like it; can't wear socks that don't match, but wish I was a person who could; and I have a German Shepherd puppy. I plan to settle down in New England because I love it here. I haven't traveled much, but would love to once I'm out of grad school. I believe in God and I love Him and what He has blessed me with in my life. That being said, I'm not a religious fanatic!!! I'm not going to Church every day, but when or if I have children I'll take them every week. That's incredibly important to me.
I think that gives enough to go on for now. If you're interested, feel free to contact me.
P.S. I want you to know that I appreciate a guy who has confidence and will walk with his shoulders back. Self-deprecating remarks are not attractive...from either one of us. I don't mind if you can't spell or cook or don't like to pick up a book. What I care about is if you can participate in an engaging conversation, look people in the eye, and smile at a random person on the street. Kindness does matter, in every way.
