I am a small town girl with a wide variety of interests who is
looking for a long term, meaningful relationship. I grew up a
tomboy and turned into somewhat of a girly girl, which means that I
can be very feminine one day and go camping and fishing the next. I
tend to lean toward elegance when dressing for an evening out but
am just as comfortable in a pair of jeans. I love the arts, good
music, good books (yes, I even love a mindless romance from time to
time), and the out of doors. Family is very important to me. I have
an unabating thirst for knowledge. I am perhaps best described as
an introverted extrovert. Passion is important to me, as are
honesty, integrity and respect. Availability, both physical and
emotional, is a must. I understand about the need for each of us to
have time we can call our own but the person I will make a priority
in my life must want me as a priority in his. To paraphrase Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., I do not make decisions about the men I'm
my life based on the color of their skin, but rather on the content
of their character. Communication is very important and can get
people through the toughest of times.
I am very loyal and very patient, which sometimes works against me,
but these traits are nonetheless part of who I am and I genuinely
like me. If my life were a glass, it'd be half full. I am known to
have and voice my own opinions and beliefs, but just as importantly
I love to hear and contemplate the opinions and beliefs of others
(it goes back to that unabating thirst for knowledge thing).
Oh, I should point out that I am not interested in being a
sidekick, friend with benefits or part of a group. I'm looking to
be part of a stable relationship, not a stable of relationships.
