I'm a thoughtful, kind dreamer with a dry sense of humor. I see the good in people, am comfortable with silence, and want to learn every day. My ideal partner thinks creatively, demonstrates empathy, and attempts the impossible.
Meeting new people is not one of my strengths. I can be shy, but if there is personality chemistry, I warm up quickly. A high-quality conversation, to me, would include laughter, intelligence, and perhaps a bit of debate. I enjoy arguing, in good fun.
My friends would probably describe me as having a bleeding heart. I give all I can and more to those I care for, which includes the downtrodden and hopeless. I feel an obligation to help fix things I see are broken, such as public education. I hope to someday (soon) pursue a doctorate degree in Educational Policy and Planning to have a hand in the future of education in our country.
Family and friends are often surprised by my tastes, even those who know me the best. I like what I like and don't worry about which box it fits in.
I'm here on match.com looking for something more serious, but not necessarily happily ever after. I'm a happy single girl and am willing to wait for the right person before making a forever commitment. I DO know that person will be: accepting, warm, intelligent, witty, mature (usually), always pursuing a goal, a fan of the outdoors, cultivating close relationships, a dog lover, a reader, and able to challenge me daily.
