An Ideal Match:
She's open minded and is eager to explore other points of view and new ideas.
She cares about her health, well-being, and quality of life, and seeks to extend those values to the people she cares about.
She is aware of her growth and change, and she is driven to direct her growth in both the long-term and the short-term.
She enjoys my company enough that she prefers for me to be present, but is most often secure and happy without my presence.
