I am a very happy person by nature. I am optimistic and unwilling to give up to a fault. I need someone who is more grounded and analytical to offset my optimism, passion and sometimes just plain old stubbornness. I need a man who is strong enough to say, "ah, maybe this is not such a good idea honey." I understand my optimism is both my greatest strength and my Achilles heel. My optimism keeps me from seeing when to give up on a project or a relationship that is no longer working. But my optimism and unwillingness to give up have also given me my greatest achievements in life. I have achieved where others failed by simply not giving up.
I am very romantic and very passionate with the right person. I love being in love and I truly believe in the old saying, "it is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all." Being able to love is the greatest gift we have as humans. And to be loved back in returned by the one we love is the greatest blessing that can be bestowed upon us.
I can be a total geek, dork, nerd. Quirky would be the kindest way to describe me ;) I own 6 of the exact same jeans along with 4 pairs of the same shoes and 14 of the same shirts. I will not date any man who needs more time than me to get ready. I can be ready in less than 20mins.
I am very independent and do need my own space and autonomy. I am not looking for someone to "complete" me. I am looking to be with someone, when we are together we enhance both of our lives for the better. I lead a very busy life between school and 2 startups. Therefore, my time is my most valuable resource. But I will make time for the right person. I believe finding the right person to spend the rest of your life with is the most important goal in life. It is amazing how much time we spend on our careers and education in comparison to how little time and effort we spend on the single most important thing in our life; our life partner. Though meeting my life partner is my ideal goal; I certainly would not consider it a failure if I met some wonderful new friends along the way.
