Hello there! My name, obviously, is Ashley. I reside in central Texas, but my heart lies in the country. I have my bachelors degree in Social Work. I am extremely ambitious, determined, and independent. I need someone wth the same qualities to join me in this journey called life. I need an equal, not someone with lesser drive and ambition than me that will hold me down; and, not someone who believes they are "above me" (however the feminist in me wants you to know there is no one above me. I am a strong woman who doesn't NEED anybody, but WANTS someone).The only people I need in my life is my family, and if you've become part of it, well, welcome. I am extremely openminded, and am very headstrong, with my opinions never being easily swayed. To be around me you must keep an open mind, hold an intelligent conversation, and be able to support not only your opinions, but yourself. I love to cook, and I am very good at it! Traveling is my favorite hobby, and I believe it is the true way to learn about a culture.
