Let's see... honestly I'm still slightly iffy on using this site, and I know this isn't the ideal way to find a "match," but since I see mostly all the same people each day I figured this would be an easy, possibly fun way to meet someone new.
I am looking to find a best friend and the love of my life all rolled into one... that's not asking much, right? I would love to find someone who I enjoy being with, and who enjoys being with me, to where we can have a blast doing exciting things, or just staying in watching a movie together. I'd love to find someone who enjoys trying new activities, and would be interested in exploring pastimes together.
I would say that I'm very traditional when it comes to things like relationships, marriage and families. I never would have guessed I'd turn out that way, as I grew up not loving some of those very qualities in my parents/family. I guess they rubbed off on me though, as I cannot imagine anything more ideal than the traditional family life in which I was lucky enough to grow up.
By far I am most grateful for my family in my life. I grew up in Houston with only my immediate family (mom, dad, sister) here in town; my parents are both from NY originally so the rest of our family still lives up north. I would love to be closer to all of my relatives, but the distance from most of them has made me even more aware of how wonderful it is to always have my parents and sister close by.
update! I figured I should add a few things based on some messages I've gotten/profiles I've seen. One is that I can be somewhat shy/reserved at times, mainly when I am in groups of people that I do not know. I really have no idea why, I guess that's just my personality. I definitely open up once I get to know everyone though!
Also, (this could be a deal breaker for some, so I figured I'd just throw it out there at the beginning) my number one goal in life is honestly to be a loving wife and mother. If we are financially able, I would love to be a stay-at-home mom who is there each day the kids come home from school. I know some people have negative feelings toward this thinking, but it is how I grew up and really is how I always envisioned my family turning out. I would argue that at times my mom's job was harder than my dad's (and he's a lawyer, so that's saying something). Hopefully there are still some traditional guys out there who have the same views! If not I completely get it, we're just most likely not the best match.
