Well, I think that the idea of fitting "me" into 4000 characters is a little daunting...and a little annoying. I'm not the type of person that can be pigeonholed into any one thing, so I have a very eclectic goup of people around me. I like to take chances...I believe that life is nothing without them. I like to spend hours in bookstore...because why the hell not? I like to be the life of the party, but hate being the center of attention. I'm a self prfessed nerd, adn I embrace it with all of my being...I think that we are given a gift when we are brought into the world, and too many people just ake it for granted. I think that it pays off to be nice to people, because it comes back to you in the end. I absolutely agree in "the golden rule."
Basically, the person that I am looking for knows how to take care of themselves. I'm not talking working out here, although that is important. You need to have direction in your life. Goals that you want to achieve and are working hard to achieve them. You have to be willing to be open about your hopes and ears, and not be some kind of enigma that is an impossible nut to crack.
A few years ago, I was reading an article about how one of the Dixie Chicks had just left her husband. She had been talking to her friends about how her relationship jsut wasn't what she thought it would be. Her friends said that relationships weren't fairy tales. She decided that she wanted the fairy tale, and would not accept anything less than that. After reading that, I decided that I had definitely been living my life in a permanent state of complacency. Now I know that I want the fairy tale, and I won't settle for less.
I'm not the type of person that will be with someone and still be on the lookout for something better, I expect the same from the person that I am with. When someone is with me, I am fully committed to that person, and the other person should be as well.
I am by no means an abercrombie model with washboard abs, but I do take care of myself. I watch what I eat and exercise. I believe that we should treat our bodies with respect, that way it will treat you with respect. Hopefully, you feel the same way.
I want someone that will be as comfortable going out to the clubs as sitting at home. Dancing with friends as meeting my mom and dad. I don't believe in being a secret to anyone, and I don't like keeping secrets from others.
If this at all sounds appealing to you, go ahead and say hello...if not, that is perfectly OK too.
