I'm very ambitious and driven. I'm an introvert not in that I prefer being alone, but I prefer being with a small group of close friends, not with a bunch of people I barely know in a crowd. I take myself very seriously and am certainly very reserved, but I open up quickly to friends and significant others. I'm very sensitive and compassionate, and not afraid to get emotional. Seriously I bawl my eyes out when watching romantic moments on sitcoms. You should have seen me while binge watching HIMYM. Okay actually you probably shouldn't, it was embarrassing. Once I discover something I like, I stick with it.
I'm not as religious as I'd like to be, but I'm looking for a girl who shares my values and has as strong a moral compass as I do. Too many girls my age are simply looking for a series of drunken random hookups and I could not be less interested in that lifestyle.
I also know what I want in a partner, and if all you did is look at my photo before sending me a message, you probably won't get one in return. There is so much more that is important to a relationship than simply the beauty of its two participants. I never send a message without first scouring every inch of a profile trying to determine whether someone is what I'm looking for.
What am I looking for?
Cultural sophistication, shared sense of morality, ambition and drive would be the most important characteristics, in no particular order.
