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. 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. In the meantime,I am in no rush to find "The One" but am looking forward to when it finally does occur.
