ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm at a place where I've achieved most of what I've wanted, up to this point. I have a job in the career field I've wanted to be a part of since I was seven and I love it; a supportive family and friends I'm fortunate enough to have had around since middle school. I tend to be an impulsive person but luckily some rationale is usually present at the time impulsivity knocks so it hasn't gotten me in too much trouble. I work a lot of hours but I do know how to prioritize my time. The perks of working as a designer for an architectural firm... I enjoy being active and you can usually find me on a volleyball court. I was pretty bummed when my yoga studio got rid of the yoga for athletes classes because I think all the other classes are a con. I will choose to spend my time on a court, field or gym over a studio any day of the week. With this said, I like to live an active, healthy lifestyle but I'm not interested in the guy that will judge me for wanting to eat something greasy some random night. I'm into that just as much as my juicer but it doesn't win out in the end as much.

I'm looking for the guy that is self-aware, sensitive, family-oriented, humorous, knows what he wants in a partner, respectful of all people, honest, a little sarcastic, and ambitious. He must always have some goal, as I do not believe in coasting through life. If he happens to have a little creativity in him, that would be great. I want to find the guy I can be perfectly comfortable staying home with. I love to go out but I don't need to go out ALL the time to be content. I like a guy to take charge when it comes to dating. I'm fairly traditional in that sense. I'm a hard ass in my career and have a fairly dominant (but respectful) personality so I require whomever I'm with to allow me to bring it down. The first time you would see this is when you ask me what I want to do for a date. I will always tell you I want to do something out of the ordinary. It doesn't matter to me what we're doing as long as it gives us the opportunity to get to know one another and we don't have to sit across from each other at a dinner table or bar. I'm not into games and that is often shown very early on. Respect goes a long way and I don't believe in respect being earned. It must be given from the beginning and the other person work to keep it. I'm never going to try to prove myself with words to you. It's a waste of my time and opinions can't be changed without actions. With this said, I don't expect you to prove yourself either. I'll pay attention in other ways, as you should too. I'm not looking to settle for some random guy. You're going to have to have something pretty special about you to keep my interest. Additionally, I realize everyone isn't for everyone and it's always been my attitude that it is perfectly okay. I wish more people would take on this attitude, when it came to dating, instead of being mean about it. I don't think this is a place to get offended.

A few things about me:
- I'm obsessed with the Olympics and I will make it a priority to go to Rio in 2016 so I won't have to rely on NBC for my coverage.
- I can't whistle.
- I don't go by Elise. My first name is actually Shannon.
- I really hate my kindle but my books take up more room than I'd like them to.
- I believe this whole experience makes people more picky than they might otherwise be and in full disclosure, something I've noticed about myself is I'm totally gauging my interest levels on how much of an effort you're putting into your profile. Otherwise, what's the point of this experience?


Side note: I like the messages instead of the winks. Assertiveness is an attractive quality.

Good luck to you in finding what you're looking for.
