I'm always smiling. I didn't wear braces for three embarrassing years for nothing.
But really, I'm an extremely optimistic and upbeat person. I'd rather spend my time focusing on things that make me smile than dwelling on disappointments. There's so much I have to be thankful for, starting with my family. My parents support me in whatever I do 110 percent. They've instilled in me the confidence to conquer the world. But I'll just focus on journalism school first.
I grew up in a really small town in southern Indiana. It wasn't until I left that I learned to appreciate the simplicity of my home. It's nice to go where everybody knows your name. And to think, four years ago, I thought I'd never look back. It's so interesting how people change, how we grow, and how much the people we encounter affect that. *The best relationships bring the best out of the people in them. I want to find someone who makes me a better me.*
I love to write. My MacBook is pretty much my best friend :) I don't intend to be the best or to make a ton of money. Warping my passions into a source of income has never appealed to me. The only benefits I get from my writing are happiness and self awareness. I currently work in retail as a co-manager at a clothing store. I'm in charge of the merchandising and visual presentation. I get to be creative :) It's a blast. Not to mention, I meet new people everyday.
I'm passionate about a lot of things. But I'm not necessarily looking to find someone with the same passions. What I AM looking for, if I may be specific, is someone who can be my best friend, not just my boyfriend. Someone I can feel comfortable sharing everything with. Someone who respects me. And all women, for that matter. Someone who respects my space and my independence. Someone who feels comfortable in social settings and who can strike up conversation with anyone. I want someone who sees the world outside of himself. Someone empathetic and kind. Someone who takes the extra 5 seconds to see a situation from someone else's perspective. If you think you can handle that, send me a message :)
