I'm currently in a good job and I'm going back to school for something that I love to study. I'm a devout Christian and I mean that in the best sense of the word nor am I ashamed to say it. I'm looking for long term and I want to be a good dad some day. I'm not a legalist. I don't have 20,000 churchy laws that you have to follow. I don't want a submissive wifey in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen while I drink beer and watch football. I want an equal.
Future goals (in no specific order): Finish my degree, travel more (Edinburgh-London 2014), experience more, write a book and get it published, start a non-profit, eat a steak the size of my head.
Who I'm Looking for:
Like I said, I'm looking for someone to be my equal and to walk with me through life. I don't want to dominate anyone nor be dominated. I've come up with a list of categories that I'd like to find in a woman they are also quality that I like the best in myself and are what I try to work on. They are flexible and I really don't expect to find someone who is "perfect" however, I'd love to find someone who has at least some of them.
1. Intelligence -- Intelligence doesn't me college degrees. It means the ability and the willingness to learn something new. I'm afraid this will sound pretentious, but it's important to me. She has to enjoy reading. By that I don't mean the latest, "50 Shades of the Girl with the Dragon Twilight" because everybody else is reading it, but because she actually enjoys reading books for the sake of reading.
2. Passion -- Even if it's competitive knitting or toothpick castles, there has to be something about her that she loves to do. Whether it's art, science, books, photography, or even a new Linux distribution; there has to be something that makes her come alive other than TV.
3. Personal Strength -- The is the one of most subjective of the list. Here I would include things like, honesty, morality, integrity, and self-awareness.
