My best description of me would be that I am down to earth, laid back, and a good listener. I like to make plans, but being spontaneous can be fun also. I'm pretty much down for whatever, I like to try new things. I don't regret anything. You learn from your mistakes. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Everything happens for a reason.--That's probably the most used motto on here, but I truly believe it. I believe in destiny and in the end God has a plan for everyone. You just need to learn which path to take to get there. I'm a thinker and I analyze everything, and I'll admit it, sometimes that gets me into trouble. I'm sick of the bar scene because most guys only have one thing on their mind when they're drunk. I am focusing on the future and learning from my past. I think I can safely say I am ready to find my soul mate and settle down and start a family. I am very happy and content with where my life is right now and with who I have become. I know exactly what I am looking for and I am determined to find that. I am looking for a relationship to complement my life not to complete it. I would love to travel the country in an RV when I retire. Other countries I would like to see would be Venice, Italy, Madagascar, and the Seychelles Islands. I would also like to see The Smithsonian and The Mutter Museums.
What I appreciate most in a partner would be someone who is not selfish, but affectionate and has a good sense of humor. I am looking for someone who is well grounded, values family and friends, and who is honest and knows what they want, no mind games. Someone who is mature, but also knows how to crack a smile and let loose and know how to have fun. I am very "real" and am looking for someone who knows how to be themselves. Someone who is down to earth, easy going, respectful, humble, non-materialistic, compassionate, strong-minded, good communicator, intelligent, funny, attractive to me, takes care of themselves without being full of themselves, honest, loyal, creative, non-psychotic, loves music, animals, people, life, family, friends, learning, variety. Someone who pretty much has it together as far as knowing what they want in love/relationship/life on a personal level.
I don't believe in love at first site, because if you truly love someone you love everything about that person, not just their looks. I believe physical chemistry happens immediately and emotional chemistry builds over time, but you need the emotional to thrive on more than the physical. I think the keys to a lasting relationship would be openness, honesty, and good communication. I love kids, but I would rather not date somebody that already has kids unless they are open to having more. I want kids of my own someday. I am a very down to earth intelligent, witty, bluntly honest, occasionally sarcastic girl who loves all of the great things about life. If u've read this far, by now I hope you understand my personality and my intentions for being on this site. Someone please get me off of here lol...idk how much more of this I can take.
I do not want any free-loading moochers, picky eaters or someone who is afraid to take an excederin for a headache.
My ideal date would be a great lunch or dinner, and then whatever the weather calls for. I am not a picky person. If it's nice weather I would like to do something outdoors, enjoying the beauty of nature, like going to the Shaw Nature Reserve, or Botanical Gardens. I also like going to comedy clubs, wineries, watching drag races, car shows, concerts and of course the St. Louis specials like The Loop and Forest Park (the Bouthouse, the Art Museum, the Science Center, and the Zoo).
