I have become quite comfortable with who I am, I know what I want, I am confident in my choices, and I follow through on my convictions. Please do not expect to mold me as you see fit. I am looking for someone who is my complement rather than a guide.
Courtesy and respect are very important to me. If you are a woman who hates men who hold doors for you, then I apologize. Unfortunately, I cannot help myself when I have the chance to hold the door for someone! Common courtesy may be that one little event that brightens what may be someone's terrible day! Why not put in that little bit of effort?
I enjoy being physically active. I may not follow sports (not to say I can't watch them), but I love playing them. There's nothing like going outside and getting tired and sweaty with some friends!
I find a lack of will-power to be disappointing. It is disheartening to see someone not believe in themselves and say they "can't" do something. If you have this kind of attitude, please feel free to forgo (alliteration!) contacting me. You have my sympathies, but I do not enjoy a "glass-half-empty" attitude.
With regard to dating, I have my standards. I will not deny that there must be a physical attraction. This is human nature. Appearance is not all there is to it, though. Looks can get you in the door, but personality is what keeps you there. I want to be with someone with whom I can joke. I love to laugh, and I love to share laughter with others. I live to brighten the mood in hopes that it may make someone's day even the slightest bit better! I also like to have actual conversations. Dead air on a date can become awkward. Don't get me wrong, I can hold a conversation for two, but I would much rather participate in a conversation than dominate one. ;)
