I'm kind of skeptical about this whole online dating thing, but I am willing to give it a try! Some things about me; My whole perspective on life has changed over the past year and I don't take anything in life for granted. I can't stand fake or superficial people and believe that what matters most in life is our interaction with others and character. Money, fancy cars, or any other material possession doesn't impress me, but rather your attitude on life and your values. I am a very family oriented, well rounded, caring, driven, and passionate individual and am looking for someone who shares the same qualities as I do. Looks will eventually fade, but your personality, sense of humor, and who you are as an individual will always remain the same. I have spent most of my life trying to live up to other people's standards, so now it's my turn to pursue what I want in life and know what that I deserve nothing but the best! By the best, I mean to be treated with respect, accepted as who I am, cared for, and to be loved unconditionally. I have a pretty good head on my shoulders and am not looking to play any games. I stand firm that in relationships, as for anything in life, you get back as much as you put in. I am always looking for new ways to improve myself and to test my limits both physically and mentally, whether it be furthering my education or training for a Tough Mudder (my current goal for October that I'm excited about!). I have learned that you have to be weak in order to be strong and without pain you wouldn't know joy. Don't take life too seriously and never live with regrets!
