I'm a firm believer that you are responsible for your own happiness. That is not to say that life doesn't have its bumps, but you are ultimately responsible for getting over them. I like to believe I've done a good job creating my own happiness. Now I would like to find someone to share it with!
I'm ambitious and am embarking on a path to a career in a field I love. Family is very important to me and I have a large network of friends throughout the country who I'd drop everything in a minute to help out and know that they would do the same. I think laughter truly is the best medicine, especially when you are able to laugh at yourself, and come from a long line of teasers, so I can take it and dish it out with the best of them.
I'm also full of contradictions. Good ones I think! On the one hand, I'm super girly. I love to get dressed up, indulge in spa days, enjoy a bit of retail therapy, have a massive shoe collection, get a high off of finding a great bargain or that perfect throw pillow to complete a room, and will scream if I spot a mouse, spider, or other creepy crawly. On the other hand, I love adventure travel, am a terrible cook (though I'm trying to learn!), drive too fast (I will deny this later), hate asking for directions, would rather play a sport than watch it from the couch, love vegging out on the couch, and have no problem holding a mouse, spider, or snake when it comes out of a cage (the fact they live in a cage makes them less scary). Moreover, my friends would probably describe me as a Type B personality, while my co-workers would say I have a Type A personality. I just think there is a time and a place for everything!
Enough about me, though, what about you? You are a gentleman who will open the door for me and guide me through the room, but likes that I can build my own bookshelves or carry my massive suitcase myself. You are also ambitious, but value work-life balance, and are generally a positive person who makes me laugh and laughs with me. You are usually up for trying just about anything once, will indulge my spontaneous weekend travel ideas even if we don't actually go, and tease me about my Frozen Yogurt addiction (or any of my other addictions or quirks). You support me when I need support and knock sense into me when I need sense knocked into me, and appreciate when I do the same for you. Basically, I want what most people want. Someone that will be my partner in every sense of the word, and who I can be the same for.
