Well...lets see. My name is Rissa and I am 26. I just moved out here to the fun state of Cali. I am from Texas originally, so I do have that southern drawl.
Manners and respect are very big in my book. I think that you can look at a man and see how he treats women around him (sisters, mother, friends, ect.) and get an idea of how he would treat you. I am absolutely NOT the type to be controlled or hounded. You have to give respect to get it. Whoever said that, said it right!
I am looking for someone to meet, get to know and see if something more than friends can be made out of it! I do not have the perfect body at all so I am not looking for someone who does. With that being said, I have more to love! :) I'm not materialistic and can spend $50 on something other than my nails.
I do take care of myself but also feel like you should like someone for more than their looks. Although...if in every picture, you're looking like a gangster or stuck on yourself, yeah...I'm most likely not going to write you back. I do think it's about more than just looks, but you also have to have some sort of physical attraction. I mean....come on....If I had a duck face in every picture, would you really write me and be interested in a relationship? For all you know, my face could be stuck that way. lol....okay, enough pickin!
A "must" for me (when it comes to a bf/gf or wife/husband relationship) is believing in God and living by his word. I know that religion can make people feel enslaved so, I don't necessarily believe that you have to have "claimed" a religion. I believe in God and I am a sinner like everyone else, but I feel like two people should have similar beliefs, especially if they want a future together and have an interest in bringing kiddos into this world. It's hard for mom to be one way and dad to feel opposite. So...I respect everyone's beliefs and views on religion but I have a strong faith in God and his plan for my life. I want to raise my kids in Church and tell them about Jesus. That is definitely something very important to me and what I want for my family. If that's not how you feel, then I don't see us ever being more than friends.
I take care of the things I own. I have bought almost everything I have by myself and completely understand the value of a dollar. I'm independent so no worries about when I'll be asking for your paycheck. Every girl likes to be spoiled sometimes, but I can take care of me. :)
I think I have OCD but I haven't actually been diagnosed. lol And before that runs you off guys...I'm just very particular about my food, things being clean, and organized. If you're a slob, I'm willing to help. But if you don't want the help...keep looking. It would also drive me bonkers to have to constantly see a mess.
I understand that I am only 26and most guys my age party and go to clubs a lot. I was never at that stage and it's not really my scene. I'm fine with staying at home, watching a movie, or going out with the group but I just don't ever visit the the clubs or bars. Now...I would go with my friends for if asked for a special occasion (birthday, bachelorette party, ect) but it's not somewhere you would see me frequent.
I like someone who loves their family and likes spending quality time with their family. I am a family oriented person and love meeting people. I am a somewhat shy at first though. I love kids. I think they're adorable and absolutely precious.
Umm...I love to laugh!! So, a good sense of humor is always a huge plus! I like all kinds of music and enjoy comedy movies mostly. Totally love horror movies! I really just LOVE movies in general!!
I like all kinds of music but my favorite is Christian and Country! But like I said, I like it all. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends and if you have any questions, just ask. Have a good day and good luck finding your person!!
P.s. - I'm not here for booty calls. I'm looking for friends first, then maybe a relationship. You'll have to find your needs somewhere else. :)
