I tend to reach for the stars, for lack of better words. I'm told often that my hopes are too high, my dreams are too big, and that I have a little too much determination. The last thing I want is for a guy to hold me back from reaching my full potential. And if there is one thing I've learned throughout my life it's not to trust anyone but yourself. People lie -- make things up, all because they're insecure. I am a very confident person, never easily influenced, and I need someone else who is also confident in himself. I'll never hide my intelligence because I fear what people will think. I tend not to get embarrassed because I can make light of almost any situation, and it is important that the guy I'm with has a sense of humor because life is too short not to laugh. I have no fear for I have God. I have a love for God and all of God's people. God comes first in my life. My heart's too big and sometimes that causes me pain, but as long as it makes others happy, then I'm happy in some way or another. I believe that love is putting the other person before yourself, and it would be nice to find someone who has a similar perspective on what love is. I like to make people smile :) I believe a smile can change the world, and a few words can set it on fire. I guarantee I'm the most unique person you'll ever come across. I take pride in being an individual and not following the crowd. My friends sometimes call me a "goofball". I tend to fall for the guys with a tough exterior, the manly men who don't seem to cry, but I crave compassion and a kind heart too sometimes. Too many compliments are a turn-off sometimes. You'll never catch me sacrificing my morals and values to fit in -- i don't need to "fit in". I seem to find my own way in life and people tend to follow. I enjoy change. Nothing can ever stay the same for too long, its boring. Life's spontaneous -- its important to live it up, but only in the best possible way. My number one motto in life is to never give up or give in, go all out and push through the pain because it will be worth it in the end.
