My self-summary
*Please note - I am in the process of updating my answers to the match questions - they are based on my perspectives when I first created my account in 2010. My profile is current. If you have any questions, just ask.

Take 3:
I am returning to this website for the third time in hopes of finding the right match. I have had relationships that started online to I know it's possible to meet someone special online. I know it sounds cliché but I'm looking to meet someone to build a life with and who will become my best friend...I don't need a diamond ring and a white picket fence but I want my own happily ever after.

My new tactic on here is to meet people in person as soon as there's a connection. We can decide if we "hit it off" and want to pursue something or just move on in different directions. Also, I don't play games - either you like me or you don't - just be upfront about it and I will do the same for you.

About Me:
I have a bubbly personality but I can be shy at first. I’m very articulate and perceptive and I'm a survivor - I've overcome many obstacles in life and I’m a stronger person for it. I'm determined and I persevere and I'm always up for a challenge. If something is worth doing, it's worth fighting for and pursuing whole-heartedly. No matter what adversity I'm presented with, I deal with it. As a result of the negative experiences, I am more grateful and appreciative of the positive ones.

I'm a loyal friend and always willing to help out a friend in need. If I'm comfortable in a situation, I enjoy discussing anything from the mundane to controversial or philosophical issues. I like to engage in intellectually stimulating conversation.

I spend my free time hanging out with family and friends. I enjoy listening to music, trampolining, swimming, hiking, rock climbing, board games, and ice skating. I also enjoy activities that provide an adrenaline rush - roller coasters, high ropes courses, trapeze...anything that involves spinning or flipping. Activities I'd like to try at some point include skydiving, para-sailing, snorkelling, and scuba diving.

I don't like the bar/clubbing scene and if you’re into heavy drinking, you’re not my type. I spend my time doing things I enjoy with the people I want to be around and I'd choose a small intimate gathering over a huge party any day.

The six things I could never do without
health, family, sleep, music, cozy pajamas, Walmart
I spend a lot of time thinking about
all sorts of things. I am often in deep thought - I'm not spaced out but I often take time to reflect and think about abstract ideas and philosophical concepts. I think about the meaning of life, how I will make use of my purpose in life (what I can do to make a positive difference in the life of another person or leave my mark in this world), human nature, how everyone is a product of their own life experiences, etc. I'm an existentialist...
On a typical Friday night I am
at home doing something with my family or hanging out with friends... or I could be out on a date if the right opportunity presented itself ;)
You should message me if
you're willing to be open and honest about who you are and what you're looking for here.

I am looking for a serious relationship. I want to know that through the good and bad, we can always be supportive of each other. I don't have a lengthy checklist but I am looking for:

1) mutual respect
2) compassion
3) intellectually stimulating conversation
4) chemistry
5) compatibility on some level - common interests, moral values, and/or personality traits, etc.
