My only true "must" when it comes to meeting someone is that they must love animals. It's been my lifelong passion to work with and help animals, and I'm fortunate to be able to do that as a job, hobby, and with my own animals. I am a vet assistant with animal hospitals, I'm a lead member of an emergency animal team, I work with a farm, and I own my own animals. So when I say I am around them all the time, I really mean it. I don't expect someone to be as passionate as I am, but it would be nice to introduce someone to these things I care about so much.
Other things I enjoy are any outside activities like hikes, horseback riding, taking in a festival or event, and doing anything that gets me out of the house. I'm not the type who enjoys just sitting around, or hanging out at a bar counter, but on the flip side I also don't mind a nice evening relaxing with a movie and dinner at home. I'm a very loyal person to my family and friends. It may be a small group, but they mean everything to me and have gotten me through a very rough road.
Feel free to ask me anything, I'm an open book and much better at talking than I am about writing about myself.
