Don't take this as me not having ambition. I'll do whatever I have to do to provide for my family. Family will ALWAYS come first to me. I'm one of those people that can get along with anyone. I'm mellow enough to just chill at home with friends or adventurous enough to go out and explore. I'm not angry all the time, and it's rare for me to get angry enough for a confrontation. I'm not lugging around emotional baggage or unnecessary drama. I'm really easy to please and very sociable. I love meeting new people and trying new things. I'm a big people pleaser. I strive to live for others and be helpful, caring, and fun to be around. Even though I need to lose some weight, I am pretty healthy. I am outside any chance I get. I love working out, especially with friends. I love going on hiking trips and other athletic activities. I'm trying to get into shape and would love someone that is accepting of who I am now, yet will challenge me to better myself daily. I love horseback riding, snowboarding, swimming, and traveling. I've been to Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Canada and many places in the US. I love going to sporting events: baseball, hockey, football, whatever. I'm very versatile in my team choices. I like the Braves, the Thrashers, and the Dawgs, but I could easily cheer for other teams to "fit in" or if it's really a big deal. I'm really competitive, but this is usually not a bad thing. I'm not going to constantly try to outmaneuver you; it's more of my way of flirting. It's me daring you to show me your man-skills. Haha ;) I'm mature and responsible, but that doesn't mean I'm not fun. I don't need drugs or alcohol to have a good time. I couldn't be with a person that did drugs, hard or soft. I drink socially, but it's rare for me to drink enough that my personality changes. And really, all I do is want to hug everyone and tell them nice things, which I suppose is quite amusing. Peace Love and Hugs is my motto. I will always be up front with you. I don't skirt around import issues, I face challenges head-on. Lying is definitely a deal-breaker for me. I would much rather have the ugly truth than a sugar coated lie. In a relationship, I would never consider cheating, nor put up with it. I don't play games or mess around. I am not programmed to intentionally hurt people. I do have negative traits, like everyone else. One of my main ones is indecision. It's not that I can't make up my own mind, it's just that I'm being influenced by what others want, what's expected of me, and what I feel like I can handle. I've changed my major 22 times. It's not that I can't commit, it's that I want to do everything! I feel like I'm really diverse and can be great at whatever I put my mind to. But I'm terrified of making a bad decision. I think I indulge in frivolous things such as Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body works, shoes, etc. But I'm debt-free and make my own money, so it's not hurting anyone. I kind of hate routines, but sometimes, they are useful. I don't want to live "just going through the motions." I find beauty in small things, and often get somewhat emotional over them.
I am looking for someone with goals, similar interests, and strong ethics/ideals. I am not the type of girl to jump in bed on a first date and hate guys who expect that. I would like a best friend above all else. Someone who is there for me, like I would love to be there for them. Someone I can trust with anything and someone that I can be on the phone with and not have to do all the talking. I am all for equal partnerships. I don't expect the man to do all the work and the romantic stuff, just like he shouldn't expect me to do everything. If I'm with you, you'll know how much I appreciate you. I'm just saying. I tend to spoil people I care about. I am religious, but I would never force my beliefs on anyone. I don't judge people on religion either. I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I am very spiritual too. In a man, I really appreciate hard work, maturity, goals, family-oriented-ness, loyalty, education, romance, and cologne. A good smelling cologne, and good hygiene in general, will definitely get you brownie points. =)
I'm not actually on here looking for a soul mate. My expectations aren't that high, but hey, I'm willing to give it a shot. Also if you're interested in me as a friend, I'm totally down. I love meeting new friends :D
