Please Say What u Mean and Mean what u Say. If you are Unable or Unwilling to be HONEST (the "obligatory" definition) Please DON'T WASTE MY TIME or Yours! Simply Move Along 2 someone else. I place very high value on Honesty. We cannot b friends or have the possibility 4 more If I can't trust in or believe anything you say or do. Actions will always speak volumes over words.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ A NOVEL!! :-D YES. I'M AWARE THIS IS VERY LONG. BUT IT LEAVES EVERYTHING OUT THERE W/ A LOT LESS TO QUESTION ;)
I'm NOT looking 2 rush into a relationship bc someone may Possibly be a "good fit" 4 me as a long term partner. I'm not looking 4 "casual intimacy" either. I'm looking 4 my BEST possible match. A partnership that brings out my best self. Therefore, I prefer to take my time, get to know someone better, experience them in different settings then let's see where it leads. Friends first! That being said, the description below is what I envision my ultimate, BEST POSSIBLE Match to be.
I'm from a small town and raised w/ good old fashioned morals and family values. I have an appreciation 4 nature and the outdoors taking camping and fishing trips annually w/ family & friends growing up. I also enjoy what a city has to offer including getting dressed up, going to a great restaurant & having a nice glass of wine, taking in a show or attending an event.
My parents taught me the importance of higher education, hard work and being able to take care of myself. I strive to be the best person I can be and am usually my worst critic. I work hard during the week so I try to make the most of my weekends and free time!
I don't need someone to complete me. But I want a good man in my life. I'd like to b in a relationship where we compliment one another. A guy who I can laugh and have fun with :-), whom I can learn from, who challenges me at times but we can genuinely enjoy each others company NO MATTER WHAT we are doing :-) a relationship where I can be my BEST self! I've accomplished & experienced a lot in my life so far. However, I believe no matter how much a person has accomplished or experienced there is ALWAYS room, 2 learn, grow and be better! In addition, NOTHING experienced alone is anywhere near as Fantastic as w/ someone you enjoy, love and care about!
I've been blessed 2 have had the opportunity to travel internationally. It's incredible 2 experience scenic views, different cultures, historical sites, cuisine and people in other countries. TRAVELING is one of my favorite things to do! This has also given me a new appreciation 4 growing up in Hawaii and in a Country where there are modern conveniences, opportunities to make a better life 4 yourself and the freedom to make your own choices. I make an effort to travel internationally once a year or every other. I also enjoy exploring the States. There's much I haven't seen or experienced yet :-)
Other things you might want 2 know:
Family is very important to me. I am a very Loyal dependable friend and I want friends in my life to be also. I like to SMILE :-) In general I have a very POSITIVE outlook on life. I have a playful Witty Sarcastic side which can sometimes turn into a sharp tongue if I get carried away. I can be a Goofball w/ whomever I'm "dating" (but not usually in public). What I VALUE MOST in a relationship..OPEN, HONEST and ONGOING RECIPROCATING COMMUNICATION!
Patience is not my strength. It is something I work on :-) However, anger from me is pretty rare!
I enjoy taking walks, hikes, the gym, fishing, kayaking, camping, yoga, going to the beach, riding my bicycle and much more. Anything outdoors or active. (it may at times take a little NUDGE from you to get me out especially after a long grueling week but I ALWAYS enjoy it!) I love Dogs. MUSIC is a passion of mine. I also enjoy the THEATER and Love Musicals! Learning 2 play GOLF!! And taking TENNIS lessons.
I very much appreciate QUALITY, Details and the finer things in life, on the flip side I feel I am GROUNDED, appreciate all that I have and value my small town HUMBLE beginnings. I'm not afraid to get DIRTY. In fact, I'm pretty HANDY and enjoy DIY projects. I own a POWER DRILL and my own set of Tools :-)
I enjoy being active and feeling productive. However, I am a very easy going go w/ the flow type and I don't mind hanging out at home too. QUALITY TIME with good friends or that special guy is more important 2 me than the activity of the day.
What am I looking for?
Someone who enjoys the Outdoors, Nature and being ACTIVE but also CLEANS UP WELL and enjoys the city, likes 2 dress up and appreciates a nice restaurant, show, live music or night out. In addition, likes to cuddle and snuggle and hang out at home once in a while would be a huge plus!
Great EYES! A beautiful SMILE :-) An initial PHYSICAL attraction & chemistry is very important to me. I am very Visual. A deeper INTELLECTUAL connection is EQUALLY important. Fun and Laughter, great conversations and SIMILAR Recreational INTERESTS. Mutual Respect & appreciation, An HONEST, Loyal, Trustworthy, kind, DEPENDABLE, man whom I also have an undeniable reciprocating CONNECTION and COMPATIBILITY. Amazing sexual CHEMISTRY & compatibility is required.
A guy who likes to TAKE THE LEAD :) I am capable and willing to do it sometimes.. However, I prefer to be the female and my guy to be the MAN in the relationship! ;-)
A man who is TALL in height (6 ft plus). One who strives for a BALANCED life. Someone who values AFFECTION regularly...Who is confident, successful by his definition and Financially Secure & Stable (I prefer at least a financial equal meaning 100k+ to reduce possible financial friction) but appreciates where he came from. I'm Ultimately looking 4 my Best friend, Lover & Life Partner
An Outdoor Activity, Event or Something FUN! The typical meet for "coffee" (i don't drink coffee) or a drink or appetizer is fine too.....I'm open to suggestion.
I enjoy being active and outside. However, I am working my way back from a pretty bad knee injury and surgery so be easy on me!
Definitely NOT a movie. We can't get to know each other if we are looking at a screen! ;-)
