I'm after the exact same thing you are, the option to find someone I can be myself around. A woman to whom I look forward to seeing at the end of the day, or at the start of a new one. A sense of humor is a must, as well as the ability to handle or be sarcastic. A lady that is versatile and is not afraid to try new things, but still loves a night of watching bad movies. Natural beauty has always caught my eye as well as someone in relatively good shape. I still open doors for strangers and treat women how I would want someone to treat my mother. I have more than my share of goofball moments and often try to make those around me laugh. I have always believed that honesty is one of the greatest qualities in a relationship, and that the little things like a text hello in the middle of the day make a big impact. Also, be blunt with things; its easier that way.
After 10 years of working in the construction field, I decided to do a complete 180 and head back to school. I still make time for at least a couple camping trips a year to keep my sanity...and camping means sleeping in a tent, not in some posh trailer. I am a very good cook and can fix just about anything around the house. I would love to make time in my life for that special person that can make time stand still, even for just a short while. Meanwhile, I am in no rush to find "The One" but am looking forward to when it finally does occur.
*Update - I have moved to Prescott for the summer, but will be back in Aug to start my master's degree program.
