I love leadership. Thinking clearly is one of my main personal goals. I love to write! I tend to avoid people who hide who they are, but we all get fooled sometimes. I tend to go where crowds aren't going, beat my own path. I love animals and I want a dog again. I joke that because of my schedule I want to get married so i can also have a dog again - that's not really true but if you're dog lover you 'get' that.
I'm more loyal to what-is-right over what-is-wrong than to a person, a group or an idea. I am VERY devoted, to nearly everything I invest in, whether it's my career, the people and things I love and care about, or my home. Nearly everything we do in life that is worth it costs something. No matter what I say or ask for here, there's far more to life than the physical and material things, and there's far more than just this life. So, faith matters to me.
Just a note about the life I'm looking for: I'm actually quite open to several different life directions, let me explain. I see a HUGE value in having children and raising them to be a positive influence on a very fallen world. I'm also at an age where I realize that may not happen. That being said, if a woman is younger but we match in maturity and chemistry and we accept and love each other for who we are, deeply, then age differences matter much less. ... THAT being said, I usually match well with women older than myself. So there's a wide range within all I just said to which I'm very open to accepting. That's the way I think people should be when confronted with life in general. When we narrow our list of demands from life, we narrow our lives. What really matters? I try hard to pick those things out and filter out what's left.
My ideal match is grounded and has a very good sense of what's important to her. She is open-minded but not willing to compromise her values. She cares about herself and it shows. She is independent and resourceful. She wants me to stand up for her yet she rarely needs it. She doesn't bounce from one comfortable place or person to another to avoid personal demons. She's more prone to deal with things because she knows it's worth it. If you have seen the HBO special John Adams, think of how his relationship was with his wife Abigail, but in 2012 terms. Hope that makes sense. NO, I don't want a submissive wallflower. lol
