I like to think I'm embracing this time in my life. I'm young, single, and living on my own. I am really satisfied with how my life has turned out up to this point. I try to be optimistic as much as I can, and I expect the same from others. It's a shame when people focus so much on the negative or the could-have-beens to appreciate everything they have going right in their lives.
I try to get out and do things as much as possible, especially on the weekends. Dinner with friends and mini road trips or camping are on the top of my list of weekend activities. Tailgating is hard to beat. I love to cook, and it's a turn on when someone knows their way around a kitchen. I'm pretty spontaneous and live by the motto that I'll try anything...twice.
What do I want in a guy? Every date seems to get me closer to figuring that out. I have learned a few things along the way. I need a guy with ambition. Education is really important to me (I'm currently working on my MBA), so if you didn't finish college, or at least plan to at some point, I don't know if our values and goals will match up. On that note, I should probably say I'm ambitious as well. No matter what you are choosing to do with your life, please don't belittle my career, because right now, that's what it is, not a job, but a career. If you're looking for just the perfect house wife, I'm not sure that's me. I want someone who will encourage me to go after my goals, just as he will allow me to be a support system for him. I'm looking for an equal partnership, someone with a level head on their shoulders.
I tend to gravitate towards guy's guys, you know, the ones who love watching football, prefer beer to wine in most instances, and occasionally let their testosterone flare up. At the same time, I like men who know how to clean up well, have good manners, treat women with respect, and can work a room well in a social setting.
Then there's the normal stuff. I'm looking for someone honest and trustworthy, who's not the jealous kind. You can always expect the same from me. I want someone who wants to spend time with me, but also has their own interests that they are passionate about.
I'm not completely convinced this online dating thing will work out, but ultimately I would like to find someone I can spend the rest of my life with. However, at this point in time, it's more important to meet some good people, maybe make some great friends, and have some fun along the way.
