That being said, I also like to have a lot of fun in life. I love surfing and snow boarding and boating. I enjoy listening to a band play or hanging out at a bar for a few drinks or watching a game at home. I am an avid swimmer and do this most mornings before work.
My career as a teacher is very fulfilling as well. I enjoy helping children learn and achieve their full potential. I love when I can inspire a student to work harder and learn what it feels like to learn and achieve.
I have a witty sense of humor. Sometimes it's a little dry and sarcastic. I enjoy stimulating conversation and a person who can match my witty banter and be playful in conversation.
What I really want is to find the true love of my life. I'm not willing to settle so if that takes years, then it takes years. I hope it doesn't though. I want that feeling of coming home to someone and telling them about my day and listening to their day and sharing the good times and the bad. Someone who truly is my best friend. Someone with whom I share common interests. Someone who is smart and independent and fun. Someone I can enjoy life with, who can lean on me and be my rock as well. I know that sounds cliche, but it is true.
I want to live my life with no regrets, to be able to look back at the end of my life and know that I lived it to the fullest, that my relationships with loved ones were happy and fulfilling and that I put my energy into the most important things in life... the people I love.
If any of this sounds like what you're looking for and like what is important to you, I'd love to hear from you.
