I don't know if it is possible for anyone to describe themselves in 4000 characters, but here goes..... I think life is too short, and it would be really sad to let time pass by without really living. I consider myself to be fun-loving and a generally happy person. I love the outdoors and I love to travel and experience new things. My friends, family and my pets mean the world to me. I believe that everyone that you meet and get to know will add something to your life in one way or another. If I had it my way, I would spend my life with a smile on my face. As far as who I would like to date, I don't think that I can say there is a specific type of man that I am looking for. I would like to meet someone who enjoys life the way that I do. A sense of humor is such an important quality, I want someone who can keep me laughing, even during hard times. I am very competitive and like to be challenged, but by someone who will also give in at times. I want to share my life with someone, but I value my independence and would want that person to respect that. For right now, all I can say is that I would like to meet a man that I can have fun with.
