Disclaimer: I have a few faults. Let's get those out of the way. If there's a deal-breaker in there, I'll save you some time.
.... Hold on... I'm thinking.....There must be something...
.... Oh! Here's one! -- I don't like cooked beans. (But I do like jelly beans.)
.... I can be a bit shy and reserved when meeting new people. If you are Mr. Sociable-never-met-a-stranger, help me get warmed up before you start making the rounds, please, then I will be just fine.
.... Oh, and I'm afraid of spiders. If I must defend myself from an eight-legged marauder, I WILL emerge victorious. If you're in the house, I will beg you to rescue me - and then demonstrate my overflowing gratitude.
I'm a Christian. Shared values are a non-negotiable for me. If you're a Christian, you probably understand why. If you don't understand, that is precisely why we would not be a good fit, but I wish you well. If you message me and you're not a Christian, I will most likely not respond; not because you're not a Christian, but because you clearly didn't read my profile and you clearly don't care what I have to say.
Things that will make you think I'm awesome:
** I'm an indoor/outdoor girl. You can take me to do just about anything. I don't mind getting dirty with you (literally or figuratively) and I like getting pretty for you, too.
** The world does not come to a screeching halt if I'm having a bad hair day. That's what pony tails are for. My range is not limited to the length of my blow dryer cord.
** I'm smart and I have an opinion. I don't expect you to always agree with it, but I do want you to consider it.
** I'm sassy. I can even be bratty -- but I like it when you call me on it.
** I won't pester you during 'the game' with ignorant questions. I know when it's a good play, I know when it's a crummy call. I can discuss strategy and I know when to just shut up and cheer.
** I'm an excellent infielder and I can hit.
** I am supportive and an excellent teammate. I want you to be happy and successful and will do every reasonable thing, within my sphere of influence, to make it happen.
** I genuinely care about you and what you care about. If I don't understand it, I will try to learn. If I still don't understand, I will smile and nod and offer you a shoulder (?) massage.
** I can say "I'm sorry" and "I was wrong" without choking.... but if it's on Google, I will verify, first. (Oh how Iove Google in my pocket.)
** I am honest to a fault, but I try to be tactful and loving with my honesty.
** I am loyal and will always have your back.
** I don't think the world revolves around me (but it's ok if you think it does.)
** Chocolate chip cookies are my superpower. Ok, so maybe I can't save Metropolis with chocolate chip cookies (although, we don't know that for certain) but I am always very popular at a potluck.
** I have a sense of adventure and common sense... but lack a reliable sense of direction. (Thank you GPS.)
** Physical affection ROCKS! I love to be held by you and feel your breath on my skin. I enjoy tactful PDA, but don't demand it.
** I believe kissing is an art and art should be experienced every chance we get. Mmmmmm... kissing!
** Travel, art, history and culture feed my soul. (I'm an awesome travel companion!)
** Moms love me because they quickly see how great I am for their son.
** I love it that you tease me because you know I don't take myself too seriously.
** I have a naughty streak.
** I am open-minded to new things you'd like me to try (choose your context here) -- ok, so maybe not terribly adventurous in the area of food. I have some strict food rules: 1) No animals with less than two legs or more than four. 1) Flesh must be cooked. 3) Nothing that is commonly referred to as "guts."
** God did not paint me like a Disney princess or a Victoria's Secret model... He did, however, paint me like a renaissance masterpiece.
** I am a peacemaker, compromiser, harmony-lover.
I agree, chemistry is a must.
I value: Intelligence - stimulate me intellectually. Integrity - inspire me to be my best person. Intimacy: 'nuff said? Humor: laugh with me.
