Sheryl Crow, Are You Strong Enough to be My Man (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o1fgn8MZZQ)
I'd like for my next relationship to start through friendship and take time to build trust and rapport. It takes me about 10 months to get a complete sense of how trustworthy you are. Trust is built, overtime, through many different experiences with each other.
I understand every person and situation is unique. I take dating seriously, I'm very loyal, and don't do shady things like cheat, if I'm someones gf.
I know exactly what I'm looking for and still flexible on allowing us to be a human being at moments. Lol
I'd rather be single then with a guy who's not perfect for me.
Which includes the following:
CHEMISTRY!!!!! (that doesn't mean sex or kissing) - achieved through looks, sense of humor, and a good conversation where we connect or similarities
Intelligent and humble
COURAGE (EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY, & physically)
Willing to ALWAYS learn and grow
Adventurous- Enjoys traveling, Will go to go to rock or country concerts
Attractive- clean cut, well groomed, not hairy, clean/straight teeth, no tat sleeves, on neck, or hands. Anywhere between muscular and lean. (white and latin men have had the best luck with me)
Timely (I see being late as selfish, inconsiderate, disrespectful, passive aggressive, controlling, and/or disorganized)
Conflict Resolution Skills
I'll be the same for you. I hold myself to high standards and I expect the same.
Not respecting my sleep or the peace and quiet that I need prior to it. That includes being courteous and not starting any new conversations about anything. Basically, leave me the fk alone while I sleep, & 10 min after waking. Please be quiet.

I was raised in Chatsworth, CA
I've also lived in PA, NC, SC, VA, TX, and Japan.
I enjoy traveling, exploring, and adventure (because I'm curious and like to have fun). I'm scuba certified.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Los Angeles, with a BS in Media and Animation Design.
I'm finishing my prerequisites for a physician assistant graduate program. I plan to be a first assistant in surgery.
While a college student, I was a personal trainer, for 5.5 years.
I have a sarcastic sense of humor that tends to be amused at others expense. What can I say...
I enjoy reading (practical) self improvement, psychology, relationship, millionaire, and health books.
I have an ebook "STOP! Don't Get Married... YET!
Since i like things to be organized and I've been impatient at times, I've learned how to be independent and self sufficient and hang my own pictures, do my own car research, mount my own tv, Connect the wires on my own stereo system, sew my clothes, cook delicious food, put furniture together, balance my bank accounts, etc.
Last minute decisions can lead to missed opportunities, chaos, unhealthy habits, or price hikes.
In a Relationship:
The relationship I end up will start as a friendship bc I expect the person I'm in a romantic relationship to also be my friend. The beginning is the foundation for a meaningful and successful relationship. I like to START with the END in mind.
I enjoy deep and/or intellectual conversations about everything in life, as well as joking around.
Our shared values are my 1st priority, such as authenticity and honesty. Chemistry (attractiveness, good/intelligent conversation), is a second runner up.
I've been a trusting person in my life and feel I've been taking for granted. Because of that, I've had trust issues that I turned into wisdom by reading books written by CIA polygraph examiner's, became and NLP practitioner, and therapy (which I think everyone needs!)
My philosophy is: Trust is earned. Therefore, I'll take my time to get to know you.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A hike, kayak, paddle board, an activity, tea, trivia night, sporting event, or lunch. Something healthy.
Nowhere too loud, movies, or alcoholic drinks.
Going to a place I can hear and experience you, and we can talk, is perfect.
