Ok, here's a little bit about me in no particular order. I am very passionate and opinionated about certain things. And I like guys who are passionate and inquisitive as well. This will probably lead to a debate, which I welcome. I love to have a friendly debate every once in a while. Keeps it interesting. This is not to be confused with arguing, lol. Not into that. Someone who enjoys some deep and serious, yet friendly conversation is a plus in my book.
That said, I guess you could call me an intellectual. I like to get heady. I love learning new and interesting things. I dig Timothy Keller, Francis Schaeffer, C.S. Lewis and Donald Miller. I'm a public radio freak. Some of my favorite shows are Studio 360, Tell Me More, This American Life and Fresh Air. C-SPAN and Book TV also get much love from me, haha. I'm a bit of a music snob too. I have rather eclectic tastes compared to most of my friends at least. I love all kinds of good music and I simply love hearing it performed live!
Ok, let me try to get a little more serious here *clears throat*... I try my best to be kind to all people and give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I love to extend grace and forgiveness, because I know how good it feels to receive them. I tend to root for the underdog and I love to encourage and befriend the outcast. I hate injustice, and when it's in my power to act, I do. I don't like to hurt people's feelings and I hate to see people's spirits get broken. That said, I am quick to repent and apologize if I hurt anyone.
Oh yeah, I have flaws too, lol. I feel weird not talking about those, haha! I can be selfish and inconsiderate at times. I've been known to jump to conclusions. Wait... am I negating all the good things that I said about myself? Haha, ok, I'll stop. But I will say that I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be. But one thing I do claim to be is ever growing, ever evolving and ever being conformed into the image of Christ. I'm teachable:)
My ideal match likes to have fun and yet knows how to relax. I'm totally into the art of "just chillin'" so he will need to be as well, lol. He is sweet and kind. He is affectionate. He is a good, attentive listener. He has a heart for and respects all people. He is chivalrous. And he is chivalrous, because he values and respects women and himself. He is honest. Not brutally, but lovingly. He has close male friends that he trusts, admires and respects. He loves Jesus more than anyone or anything in this world and he is willing to follow Him at all costs. And when that gets hard, he's willing to ask Him for help:)
In the proper time, He would love me - all of me, for me... and I would love all of him, for him - while still encouraging positive growth within each other. And should marriage ensue, he is in it for life. He refuses to quit. So do I.
In closing, I don't expect anything out of my "ideal match" that I am not willing to give, unconditionally. I don't believe in meeting him half way or giving 50%. I am a strong believer that the only way to go is with both people giving 100%.
