I am looking for someone who gets me. This is me...
I am quiet and patient. I like being independent except for when there is a spider in my room. I was put on this earth to help and serve others...that is fundamental to what makes me tick. I am a daughter of Christ and that is fundamental as well. I get a kick out of things like National Sticky Bun Day or having a blue moon in February. I have a terrible travel bug and frequently have to leave the country in order to search for a cure. I haven't found one yet, but I have found a really delicious ice cream shop in Munich, and Paris, and Belize. I lived in France for a short while (Reims) and that was probably the best thing I ever did. My newest passion is martial arts (aikido) and my oldest is handbell ringing. In a normal week I might be found riding my bike around town, baking bread, watching reruns of NCIS, avoiding the laundry, or continuing my quest to find the best plate of nachos in town.
My boy criteria used to be a short list of 3 requirements. 1. Tall enough to change light bulbs without standing on a chair, 2. A good singer, and 3. Gives a nice back massage.
I gave up on ever meeting someone who meets all those criteria a long time ago and lowered the bar for some more obtainable characteristics. 1. Encourages me to pursue a good idea, even if I get freaked out. 2. Not surprised when I say I need to live or work abroad again for some length of time, perhaps for mission work, or perhaps just to see life lived in a different way. 3. Wise enough to know all the cliches about talk being cheap and actions speaking louder than words are actually true.
