Bare with me here =). My name is Ashley and since I am currently not in the Jacksonville area just yet, I am considering moving there in May so this whole idea may be a loss, not sure yet. But first things first..I hate matches that do not have pictures..or people emailing me without one as well..get some!
I am very independent, strong willed, and caring/affectionate. As some have said in the past, I am a challenge at times but what woman isn't?Especially one worth it. I am a very honest person(too much for some people sometimes) and I expect the same. I rather you be honest and hurt my feelings then spare me. I love to cuddle, all the romantic gooberish, and I love doing things together with that person. I am looking for someone with a great personality, they should have humility and be able to make me laugh cause God knows I have enough dorky qualities to make them laugh at me. I have to say I like when a guy can take charge and control but then be willing to share the power cause I will fight you for it haha. Communication is a huge factor. I can't say that I am the best listener because I do a lot of the talking, but you have to communicate with me because as most men like to think when it comes to women "I can't read your mind, nor do I pick up the hints" haha. Trust is a big issue. If I don't have it or feel it then i'll be the first to opt out.
I am a girl who is very picky when it comes to men. I can not say that I know what I want down to a T because each man is different from another and so somethings just depend, but I can say what I do not want. Call it what you want but in regards to attraction, I have to have it. If there is no source of attraction for me then I feel no sense in trying farther because I know you will just be a friend. I have a thing when it comes to hygiene; if you are not willing to take care of your body or mouth then what makes you think you will find someone who does. Nice, clean, white teeth are part of the attraction. Not saying it has to be perfect but you get what I am leaning towards. Take care of yourself and you will find the same quality in someone else.
I am very strict on the matter of smoking/drugs, age, and children. I absolutely will not date a smoker or druggie(sp?). I do not want to date younger nor do I want to date too old. Older then myself but not past 30. I will not lean or bend to dating someone with kids because I am still young and don't want to be a mom. I enjoy my selfish freedom. These are the basic standards I hold, if you fall under these 3 categories then I will politely respond with a "No Thanks". Not trying to be hurtful or harsh but I warned that I was honest =)
