Life is too short to just sit back and let things happen. I am a very motivated person that tries to do everything all at once, at times to my determent, but that is just me.
**random fact** I am a cancer survivor and an amputee, meaning I had the lower part of my right leg removed (below the knee). I am now cancer free, but if that is in any way a turn off I think it's best you know up front :)
Also, if tattoos are a no for you, you might as well move on. I have three. I have a woven orchid on my right hip bone, a quote from Hamlet of my left rib cage and, I have a Shakespeare quote on my on right rib cage. Piercing wise I'm rather bland with only my ears and navel.
~*~ I want to say for the record that I am, and have been financially independent since I was 16 years old. If you don't support yourself we probably will not get along well. I'm not knocking that way of life, but I'm fiercely independent and it's difficult for me to have common ground with someone that is very dependent. I'm not looking for someone to take care of me, or for me to take care of. I can take care of myself. I'm looking for an equal. ~*~
I am above all else, a lady and wish to treated as such. If you cannot do that, please stay away from me, because I am not interested.
Now, if you can treat me respectfully I think you should also know up front that I am a type A personality. Meaning I am a very dominant person. I'm not saying that I'm a "bitch," but I am saying that many men find me difficult because I do not blindly listen or do what I'm told. I need someone in my life that will understand my need to keep moving and will not try to hold me back, but push me forward in everything that I do. I want someone that I can argue with, that will yell right back at me and not take my BS. I know most people think yelling and fighting is wrong and I am by no means saying that it is amazing, but arguing and being able to yell at one another shows a passion that I want in my life. I don't want to ever be afraid of fighting with my partner again....long story....I want someone that is just as motivated as I am, that will be ok with me pushing them toward their goals... I am an ex competition cheerleader, expect me to be your cheerleader if I am in your life... I am not always rational... I am emotional, illogical, and difficult at times... I will get mad and not tell you and I will drive you insane.... Nevertheless, I promise my pros outweigh my cons....
All I truly want is someone to love and that will love me in return, that will put up with my crap and will be comfortable to let me deal with theirs. I need someone that I can yell at and that will yell right back at me, but in the end hug me say it's ok and be done with the conversation *because I never stop*. I need someone that is ok with my goals and supports me and that has their own goals and wants me to help them achieve them. I am looking for someone that does not care about my disability but sees it as only a small part of who I am. They need to be someone that will be goofy and childish with me that will wrestle with me, cuddle with me, hug me for no reason and tell me that I am amazing. Someone that will be ok with my insanity and will let me see theirs.
Mostly, I want my partner to be my friend first. I want someone that will listen and talk to me.
