I'm just a small-town girl who loves God, my family, my friends and animals. The feelings of others are important to me, and I try to always treat others with decency and kindness. I cannot abide rudeness or cruelty of any type. I give myself wholeheartedly to everything and everyone. I don't believe in doing or living halfway. I consider myself to be a caring, compassionate person. Sometimes my tender heart gets bruised, but I can't seem to make it tough and cynical no matter how much I may try, and I think I'm okay with that.
Despite a few disappointments along the way, I still have a dream of a satisfying, enduring relationship with someone who makes me feel loved, appreciated and respected. I dream of someone who has warmth and compassion for others...who doesn't live his life as though it is a burden, but a gift...someone who knows himself for better or worse and who can acknowledge my imperfections, but love me regardless as I try to better myself...someone who is intelligent, but who is also smart enough to know that he doesn't know everything AND strong enough to admit it...someone who doesn't expect me to give more than my share, but who will willingly be my equal...someone who will always be straight with me no matter what...someone who is passionate about life and about me...someone who realizes happiness isn't dependent upon how much money is in your bank account, but who also knows how to balance his checkbook, his priorities and other things that count.
That is the ideal outcome of course, but hey, everything has to start somewhere, right?
