I'm looking for someone worthy of my adoration. I crave intellectual and creative stimulation from my companion. I love witty banter (but not mean-spirited). I admire a man who works hard and is working toward his ambitions. I admire fairness and leadership, humility and confidence (yes, you can have both), and devotion to God - I'm committed to the LDS church, and my ideal future partner is, too. I have a very high morality and I don't like things that are rude, crude, or lewd.
NOTE: I'm not a skinny girl. I've never been a skinny girl, and I probably never will be a skinny girl. But I'm strong and healthy and capable, and I'm smart and talented and full of life and laughter and ideas and passions. I'm a human being, and I am more than my comparison to an arbitrary and narrow-minded ideal of what a woman is supposed to be. My priority is not to conform to what American society thinks I should be; my priority is to be what God intended me to be, to live a life of joy and love.
I enjoy doing lots of things, mostly involving learning cool stuff about nature and the world and people in it, or making up things of my own.
I also cook/bake pretty well, when I feel like it.
Movies: The Avengers (of course), Oscar, Pirates of the Caribbean I, Labyrinth, Captain America, Star Wars, Pride & Prejudice (the A&E version), the Scarlet Pimpernel, Bourne Identity, Galaxy Quest, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Three Musketeers, Sky High, Stardust, Hellboy2, etc.. As far as genres, a lot of fantasy (again), sci-fi, superhero, action/adventure, and lots of historical stuff.
Shows: Agents of SHIELD, Arrow, Flash, White Collar, Grimm, Once Upon A Time, Sherlock, some Doctor Who, Stargate: Atlantis & SG-1, Firefly, Danny Phantom, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Gargoyles. (Clearly I'm into shows that are larger than real life and generally dramatic more than comedic, but with a good message.)
Music: Mostly alternative. I'm more of a song-by-song person than a band/album person, but particular favorites are Vertical Horizon, Foo Fighters, Dexter Freebish, Imagine Dragons, Garth Brooks, Jimmy Eat World, Yanni, Kamelot, Afrocelt Sound System. I like some classical, new age (it's good for the writing/drawing), country (mostly early-90's stuff), world music, and a lot of musicals. And I've been going through a classic rock awakening lately, so I'll add Boston, Def Leppard, Heart, and Scorpions...
Food: Broccoli, potatoes, popcorn.. sometimes I'll go to a movie theater just to buy popcorn and take it home. I'm not very picky, but I prefer Mexican food over Italian, I like Chinese and Japanese but not most fish, and I've recently fallen in love with Thai curry and Greek food.
