I'm hoping to find someone who can communicate and listen effectively, accept me for who I am, and be honest. I would describe myself as outgoing, spontaneous, intelligent, and dependable and I'm looking for the same things in a match. I am ambitious and dedicated to my career; it took me a long time to get where I am and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Being educated to some degree is also very important to me! I've found it's just not something I can compromise on.. I've tried and it typically doesn't work. I value having a great group of friends who have remained a part of my life since elementary school! As an only child with a small extended family, I would love to be part of a big family someday. I am very independent and like to feel that I can take care of myself, but I also like to be spoiled at times... just small romantic gestures.. nothing too extravagant... honestly what girl doesn't like it! I also have a dry, quirky sense of humor and hope to find someone who's able to pick up on that and not be too serious all of the time! I need someone who can make me laugh and understands my silly side. I'm hoping to find someone who I click with and who makes me smile just thinking about them.. I believe you just know when it's right and If it's not.. one shouldn't try to make themselves something they are not just to please someone else.. only ends in resentment. If you want to know more about me send me an email :) Oh and I almost forgot I do not like to cook!! I'm willing to try with a little help.. I do enjoy cleaning though... weird I know! Lastly, I am not looking to hook up.. not my style.. so if that's your game.. don't bother.. I can read people well and will see right through the act.. I went to school for it!
