I have a lot of appreciation for them, and for anyone who does anything for me. Even if you just open a door, you can expect a heart-felt "thank you". My life would be nowhere if it weren't for the good hearts and charity of my friends, parents, my friends' parents, and other people along the way who gave me a ride, a place to stay, whatever.
My life is back on track after a while of, after graduating college for the first time, me not being able to find a good job. I worked for a bunch of places that just didn't have any work to do so they'd let me go. I wished I would have just kept on cutting grass! Then my car broke down and I had to ride a bicycle everywhere for a while. That sucked.
I lived in Tigerland, didn't get to see my friends a whole lot, had a HORRIBLE roommate, and hardly got to eat healthily because there aren't that many grocery stores in the area.
Now that I'm back in school, not living in Tigerland, back cutting grass on the one day I don't have classes, and bought the motorcycle, I feel much better than I did then and I am really working hard to make good grades, and for the first time, I am making good grades!
Now, to find a nice girl to share it all with... I fear that may be the hardest part. I want someone who knows what they want and someone who can appreciate me as much as I can appreciate them. If you're a loving, caring girl, I can appreciate you for that and love you back and care for you. If not, I'm just not interested.
Physically, I like girls who dress cute, and like to look pretty. The first thing I'll notice is your hair, your eyes and your smile. I'm sure they'll be great!
Personality wise, I like girls who are quiet and thoughtful. I don't like the girl who is the first person to talk in a situation and say the first thing to come to her mind. I like a girl who, when she speaks, everyone listens because they know it's going to be good.
I like a good listener, and someone who can hold a great conversation with me. I can't stand feeling like I'm talking to someone who is waiting for me to finish just to say something and isn't even hearing me. I do like just sitting in silence, it's not like we have to talk all the time, but when we are, please be receptive! I guess I like a girl who doesn't talk all the time because I tend to talk all the time.
In the same vein, I hope you have a great sense of humor! I am a jokester and my friends are too, and I can't see you getting along with me for too long if we don't laugh at the same things.
Please also be patient. If you're impatient or are quick to get mad, don't even bother, I'll certainly make you mad at least sometimes and if you don't like to work things out rather than just blow up or break up or whatever, it certainly won't work. I'm a talker and a problem solver. I think it works better that way.
It would help if you either didn't care about music or liked the same music as me. I am pretty passionate about music.
Geez, that was pretty long-winded... Story of my life...;)
