Youre the only one I want now
I never heard your name.
Lets hope we meet some day
If we don't its all the same.
Ill meet the ones between us,
And be thinkin' bout you
And all the places I have seen
And why you where not there.
There is nothing bigger than the little things.
'Think of 20 things you want in a relationship and make sure you have those yourself.' -Pink
“We need a witness to our lives. There are billions of people on the planet…I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a [relationship], you’re promising to care about everything – the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things – all of it, all the time, every day. You’re saying, ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness.’” (Susan Sarandon in "Shall We Dance?")
I quote this because, of course, I agree with them.
First, I hope that my living in Wetaskiwin is not daunting too much for anyone that would like a relationship conveniently near to them. I admit my preference is to find someone nearby, too, but if I found a wonderful person, no distance is too great. Besides, I drive into Edmonton and Leduc regularly, so that is not a problem for me. I've only been living here since July '11 and have a great job and a great place to live, both of which I love. I hope I can share them with someone in someway. On the question do I have a dog, I have one, but he lives with my parent's on an acreage.
I am an understanding and caring, open, thoughtful, intelligent, witty, passionate and a dreamer with ambition - looking for a woman who appreciates these qualities. I like the outdoors and want to share good times with someone special. I try to go camping and backpacking as much as I can, though not often enough. Other hobbies include archery and horseback riding - I'm a writer and love history and museums. I would love to find someone who could join me and share with me their passions.
Also, I am the kind of person that does not care if you are taller than me, stronger, faster, smarter, or whatever, and I don't get jealous very easy, only because I know how to give trust, as much as I give loyalty.
I try to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
Spontaneity in a relationship is great, where you feel you could do and would do almost anything while you are with that person. I am usually up for a good dare. I need to fulfill that sense of adventure. I also have my serious side where I like to talk about anything spiritual, political, or intellectual as well as the funny/goofy side. I love to go somewhere I can have an excuse to dress up in a suit or dress down in my gym shorts and have fun in the sun.
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
I would like to be braver than I am, smarter than I am, more sensitive than I am, more creative than I am, but it is the attempt that counts...
I don't ask for too much in what I look for in a woman. I know everyone should be discerning, to a degree, but I don't rule out so much that I could be ruling out someone that could be wonderful to be with, since I believe that chemistry can develop and does not have to be instantly noticeable. I like to give things a chance. All I really look for is someone who respects themselves and others around her, is a good person, and looks after their health.
Are there such things as 'deal breakers'? Not at all, but there are things I'm looking for: a non-smoker, or at least someone with intentions of quitting and someone who is fit for enjoying fun outdoor activities - cycling, mountain climbing, etc. I would never turn away a great person for the sake of these and I hope none of this sounds judgmental, since that is not me at all.
Also, please don't expect me to write you first. I may wish to write you, but likely won't because writing a thoughtful letter and hearing nothing back is becoming less my thing these days. If you do wish to hear from me, write me 1st and you should hear from me and from there we can begin an exciting journey together.
One last thing - life is too short to wake up with regrets. So I will love the people who treat me right. Forget about the ones who don't. If I get a chance, I will take it. If it changes my life, I will let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.
Someplace where there is no pressure like a fun game of pool or hitting balls on a driving range, a coffee or a drink afterwards, then a nice walk on a warm summer evening. Some place we can hear each other talk. Apart from that, I am free of expectations and open to new experiences.
What really is a 1st date? It depends on the individuals. Setting aside a short time to meet someone should be all that is expected the 1st time and an easy thing to do. I'd rather meet someone and have it not turn out to my hopes than regret not meeting someone who could have been the person I was meant to be with.
At the end of their lives most people regret the things they didn't do, not the things they did.
