I am someone who enjoys trying to see life from a different angle, from a perspective I ordinarily would be unaccustomed to. This has made me aware that my values and worldview are really due to the microcosm I live in. It’s a constant self-assessment of why I think certain ways.
I’m currently finishing up my Master’s. I love studying ancient languages. Yes, it sounds lame and nerdish :) My education has been a major part of my life, but it’s not all there is to me. I love to read. I enjoy beading (jewelry making), even though I’m not exactly the most creative person. I enjoy watching movies and during the spring and summer months, going to the lake. It would be difficult to live without the Colbert Report and chocolate. I’ve also developed an “addiction” to blueberries.
My friends would describe me as quiet, perceptive, and a great listener. I’m shy by nature and some people may at first interpret me as aloof. But, once I start talking to someone I loosen up and come out of my shell.
I’m looking for someone who shares a similar outlook on life and someone who “gets” me. Ideally he would have a sharp, quick sense of humor and who is not afraid of a girl with a mind (this has been a problem).
The following is already on my profile, but I think it’s oftentimes overlooked so I restated it below. He would also:
- be at least 5'10'' and not have kids.
- be within my specified age range, 27ish-35ish
-not smoke. This is a deal breaker
-live within a realistic proximity. I live in the NE area of Charlotte. Cities such as Mooresville, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Gastonia, Monroe, Waxhaw, and really anywhere in SC is too far away. I need some measure of spontaneity in a relationship and those distances just don’t allow for it. If I was husband hunting it wouldn’t matter so much because (ideally) the relationship would come to a point where one party would move (BTW: emailing me stating that you don't mind the drive doesn't change anything).
I’m primarily interested in a serious, committed relationship. Marriage is always a possibility, but it’s not the reason I joined this site. My philosophy is start slow and let things develop on their own. It’s much more organic that way and less pressure, no?
Something random about me? Unlike a lot of females shoes aren’t crack for me :)
