I've gotten to a point in my life where I'm happy but would really like to find someone to share my happiness with. I have solid family oriented goals and a good background, job, and house to help back those goals up.
I love kids and my job, of teaching Math to 7th through 11th grade students. It is great to have a job that I love so much that I am actually sad every year to see summer vacation come because it means that I won't be seeing any of my students for the next few months. Everyone should have a job they love that much.
I think I have a lot to offer someone, not just in fun things to do, but as a true partner in life. Creative expression and communication (along with respect) are super important to me and I like to think they help in many ways with how I interact with a friend or partner.
In all, I am extremely passionate about everything in my life and those I surround myself with. I strive to support those whom I name friend with tremendous effort, as well as seek understanding of those who differ from me on a daily basis. I firmly believe in supporting one another in everything we decide to do/feel, and if we don't support each other, to strive for greater understanding and acceptance in general. I passionately believe that knowledge is fantastic as long as there is good communication there as well.
Things I would love to do with someone:
Drive to northern California with me the weekend of May 20th this year to watch an annular eclipse! Look forward to 2017 when we have a full eclipse that goes through Salem as well.
Spending time discussing (or doing) ways to decorate/improve a house, inside and out.
Family is important to me and I would love to have screaming kids running around more than I already get with my job. Teaching them good values and raising them in the best way possible works better with two people than alone.
Another dream of mine is to travel more and seeing special places all over the world with someone else so that we can share all the great memories that we produce.
There are dozens of dreams and ideas beyond these things too. From things dealing with a home, to taking professional lessons for dance (be it Waltz, Tango, West Coast Swing, whatever), to having some pets. Everything is better shared with another but having someone who understands that relationships take work is also important. It really takes two to have a relationship and I am ready to do whatever is necessary to have that happen.
