I have tried match.com before. I seem to find better results and it's easier to see who is more compatible, so my relationships, except for one have originated online. I deleted everything I wrote on before so this is current since it's been a while since I've been on here. As I lay here in my king size bed in my quiet home with a wrapped gift on the dining room table for my friend's baby shower tomorrow, my cousin's wedding invitation on my frig, and a Friday night with all of my friends with their significant others I feel like writing now is one of the best times so you can see a very genuine me versus me trying to sell how good I am like a stereotypical product. I used to "shop" for specifics and I still do, but you ultimately fall in love with the person.
Honestly I, like most people had a plan with a family and kids, etc and that plan is becoming less of a reality. I would love to have found my partner by now, but I'm just reaching the point that I'm like okay we'll just see what happens and hope for the best. I can plan only so much in my life and then it comes down to the other person. I have graduated college, am doing well in my career, got the new car, enjoy where live (the street is even my name), secure in my faith, work out, and my philosophy on relationships and love is very giving and genuine. Since I do value relationships so strongly, I am more sensitive to my partners words and actions than other girls probably. I have never yelled at a guy and have only cried once about a real life situation in front of a guy, so don't misread that I'm too sensitive. My last boyfriend said what he really liked about me was that I am strong enough to lead and take care of others and could seamlessly transition to follow someone I trusted and it was hard to find someone that had that kind of balance. My friends like that I'm silly, up for about anything. I think I will always be scared of heights no matter how many times I do things involving heights. I'm a country girl at heart. I think I actually started liking the country more after I moved here because I missed it. I have not been on a date country dancing yet here;) I like target shooting, but will get upset if I see something get killed. I'm from Iowa and have more friends there then here. Have been here since October 2011 and my parents are here. There are a lot of big decisions I am trying to figure out this year after my work contract and lease are up in late 2013. I plan on switching companies, changing where I live, etc late this year, so if I develop a relationship with someone before then it will definitely affect where I will go and do and I'm open to that. The most important thing I want to focus on right now is a relationship because honestly everything else for at least the rest of this year is going to stay consistent.
If you google "Up In The Air he fit the bill" clip with Anna Kendrick it hilariously describes my ideal man, except doesn't have to have a finance degree and 6 feet-6'1''. That girl is like me and then again that girl ended up single at the end of the movie, so that's just peachy:/
I wish the best for all of us on here. Take care and keep smiling.
