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. I still open doors for strangers and treat women how I would want someone to treat my mother; all I ask is that it is a two-way street. I have always believed that honesty is one of the greatest qualities in a relationship, so just be blunt with things; its easier that way. Natural beauty has always caught my eye as well as someone in relatively good shape. As for me, I am 5' 11" - 200 lbs and could stand to lose about 8 of them. Played soccer for 20+ years, and the legs are still there.
After 10 years of working in the construction field, I decided to do a complete 180 and head back to school. So full-time student and a part-time worker pretty much describe my life. I have to have 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 an can fix just about anything around the house. There's not much free time in my life, but I would love to make time for that special person that can make time stand still, even for just a short while. In the long run, school will certainly prove its worth. Meanwhile, I am in no rush to find "The One" but am looking forward to when it finally does occur.
