I enjoy simplicity. Of course, I enjoy nice things but I place more value on those things that are intangible. I like people who are open minded and that I can engage with in a conversation. I like to continually learn and grow. Without growth one becomes stagnant and that leads me to boredom. I am compassionate and care for the well-being of others. Family is important to me and is the core of my person. I treat others as I would like to be treated, with respect, and honesty. I have worked hard to be successful at my young age and look for those same attributes in a woman. Someone who is independent, has goals, not shallow, and is not high maintenance. Someone who truly values feelings, and NOT only material goods. We have all made mistakes in our lives but the key is to learn from them so that you do not stumble on the same mistake twice. A physical attraction is necessary, but with time looks fade. True love however, is eternal if you can find it, maintain it, and keep it.
