It's what we're torn between, isn't it? ****ing and moaning and complaining about this life, and, yet, not wanting to give it up for anybody, or anything. -Keith Urban
Firstly, I'd like to say welcome to what is my profile. My name is Elizabeth and, it's very nice to meet you. :) I'd also like to say that I'm the kind of girl who wants simple things in live but has a very complicated personality. There are just a few things in life that I really want: Graduate college; to find my One and marry him; start a family; and just be happy. Those are the main goals of my life right now. It's just getting there is what's complicated.
The man I want is someone who will never give me a reason to doubt them. Someone I can trust, no matter what. Someone who will be there even when I'm having an emotional breakdown. Someone I can share my ups and downs with and create new memories and experiences with.
As for my complicated personality, I'm a really caring person. I'm always way too willing to put others and there problems before my own. At the same time, some of those people have told me that I'm a spoiled brat. I know that's not true but, it's made me doubt some of my integrity. I'm really shy and quiet. Rather, I can be. I'd much rather blend in with a crowd then to stand out. Which, is really ironic since I have a background in performing and I love it so much. I also have this thing about bottling up my feelings and feigning a smile.
When it comes to religion, I was raised Catholic but as I've grown up, I've seen no point in being religious. I strong dislike it and their customs. It's just too strict for me and I'd rather be spiritual than anything and believing that things happen for a reason rather than saying that "it's God's will." I've considered switching religions entirely but, I've not found one that really fits me. I don't really like the idea of believing in some sort of deity. However, I'm not going to criticize someone who is religious. As long as they don't try to force it on me then, I'm fine with it. Though, what I find rather annoying is the freakily devout Christians and Catholics. They just make me want to run in the other direction.
Even though I'm a person who's relatively conservative, I can be pretty political. I won't get much into this but, when it comes to certain things, I will stand up for what I believe in. xD
When it comes to falling for guys, they always seem to be out of my city. Which, kind of sucks. And, they always end up being complete jerks. When it comes to type, I don't really have one...but, I do have expectations for personality and looks. however, it can vary from one individual to the next. The idea of personality is more important than looks is almost complete bullshit. I mean, yeah, it's important but, there's a point when looks are a factor. Though, that doesn't mean I'm vain. I just know more or less what I like.
Also, while it's not mandatory, I think it'd be a huge honor to date someone in the military. This would be in memory of my grandfather who was in the Navy and just passed recently. Of course, I would have to really have a connection with the guy first. The guy also has to be somewhat of a mixture of my grandfather and my best guy friend. I know that that is a really complicated concept. Basically, they are two really caring and loving men. My grandfather wanted the best for his family and wanted to make sure they were happy. My guy best friend wants everyone happy and to succeed and loves the people important to him.
Relationship-wise, I've had more than my fair share of crappy ones. Half the time, I can't win and always have to give up because the guys stop trying. They seem to disappear as soon as my life starts to spiral downwards. It sucks. What I'd like to have is a relationship in which the guy is there as a support system when I'm happy, sad, stressed, or any other emotion. I'd like the guy to be able to see past all my personal issues. But...that's hard to come by, apparently. I'm just done with the bullsh*tI've dealt with all the time and I need something genuine for once.
Music is a huge part of my life. As I type this, I have music playing in the background. I'm listening to it whether I'm walking somewhere, riding in the car or, reading a book. I'll even listen to it when I'm watching t.v. I'd list everything I listen to but, it's such a long list that it'd just be easier to figure that out as you go along and learn about me.
When it comes to animals, they're quite an important part of my life. :) At the moment, I have two cats: Rascal, a grey and white shorthair and Archie, an orange tabby. I love them dearly. I used to have an Aussie-Collie mix named Coco but, we had to give her away. I was devastated. Before that I had a grey and white barn cat named Jewels who had to be put down. My plan is that as soon as I am financially able, I'm going to have a dog and a cat. A grey and white cat for sure, especially since they've been a huge part of my life since I was very little. As for the breed of dog, I'd prefer to have a mutt because they're the best but, really, it's what ever kind of dog I end up falling in love with. I'm so awesome. :) Oh! And, I'd like to have my own horse one day. That'd be perfect.
I love to cuddle in sweatpants and a tshirt, but I also love taking the time to dress nicely and put on the little make up I use and rock some kickass heels and a dress. My confidence in myself as a woman has grown and continues to grow throughout the year.
As long as you're a good guy, it doesn't matter.
Side note: I may not be the skinniest girl in the world but, I'm currently on my way to losing weight and becoming fit. So, don't be so quick to judge.
Also, UK Women's Choir is going to consume a lot of my life. :D Which, I'm quite excited about.
