I've done this before and I've met a couple really great people, and several less great people. My hope is for another great person and far fewer not great people :)
Players and those who behave as if they're still in college: I am not the woman you're looking for. Not making judgments about you, but that's not what I want.
Now that that's out of the way... On to the weird task of talking about myself. I've been described as quirky, smart, funny, sarcastic, honest and loyal. I'd like to think those are all true (yes, even the quirky). I'm a bit shy when I first meet people, but once you get to know me all bets are off. I have a fondness for ellipses, I love bacon, and my brain to mouth filter is often out of order. I get excited about silly things, and I don't feel the least bit bad about it. Life should be enjoyed and I truly value the little things. I guess I need to add that I have a few tattoos. Apparently this is an issue to some of you. So there you go. My skin has pictures on it here and there.
I'm sure there is more I should be saying about myself, but I really am not good at volunteering information off the bat. If you want to know something you just need to ask.
So on to who I hope you are then.
I'm looking for a man with a good heart AND a good head on his shoulders. Someone who is smart and caring. Someone who can be silly with me, but knows when to be serious as well. Someone that knows how to treat me well without sticking me on a pedestal that I'll inevitably fall off of. By now you hopefully know how to have balance in life and not panic when things aren't perfect.
Chemistry is extremely important. You can meet someone that checks off every box on your mile long grocery list, but if there's no chemistry I believe there's no point.
Health is extremely important to me, and it must be to you as well. I'm not saying lets eat salads all day and then spend hours in the gym; I am saying taking care of yourself has to be a priority. I lift heavy (to me) things like I mean it, and it would be great if you did too.
Lastly, I know match advises against doing what I'm about to do but I've found I have to do it anyway. I want a lasting relationship. I'm not in a rush but I know what I want, and what I want for my future is a family. If the idea of this is the plot line of your own personal horror movie, our time would be better spent with other people.
I really mean this. If you don't want kids or "aren't sure" then please don't wink at me or email me. It's a waste of your time and mine.
If I haven't managed to scare you off with that last bit, I hope you'll say hello!
