That being said, I am a small town girl with a wide variety of interests, who is ultimately looking for a long term, meaningful relationship. I am not looking for hook ups of any sort.
I grew up a tomboy and turned into somewhat of a girly girl, which means that I enjoy femininity and camping, fishing, etc.
I love the arts, good music, good books (yes, I even love a mindless romance from time to time), and the out of doors. Family is very important to me. I have an unabating thirst for knowledge.
I am perhaps best described as an introverted extrovert. Passion is important to me, as are honesty, integrity and respect. Availability, both physical and emotional, is a must. I understand about the need for each of us to have time we can call our own but the person I will make a priority in my life must want me as a priority in his.
To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I do not make decisions about the men I'm my life based on the color of their skin, but rather on the content of their character.
Communication is very important and can get people through the toughest of times.
I am very loyal and very patient, which sometimes works against me, but these traits are nonetheless part of who I am and I genuinely like me. If my life were a glass, it'd be half full. I am known to have and voice my own opinions and beliefs, but just as importantly I love to hear and contemplate the opinions and beliefs of others (it goes back to that unabating thirst for knowledge thing).
Oh, I should point out that I am not interested in hook ups of any sort or in being a sidekick, friend with benefits or part of a group. I'm looking to be part of a stable relationship, not a stable of relationships.

6. All the experiences that went into making me who I am today.
