Shy at first, but in time I will warm up... after that I tend to be the one cracking jokes and making sure people around me are laughing and are happy. I have spent most of my life taking care of people and putting others first. I currently work with adults and kids with special needs, but also with the elderly at a nursing home. I love giving back, and each of my residents have changed my life for the better
I love the simple things in life... bonfires, family, sporting events, movies, music, traveling, sitting out and watching the clouds and picking out animal shapes, watching sun set by the lake/river, sitting in the quite somewhere outside and much more. I am extremely close with my family which includes 2 siblings and my parents who have been together over 37 years. Seeing what my parents and grandparents have, I can only hope that I would find that someday too.
I consider myself to be an ambivert (mix between introvert and extrovert). All my life I have always been told I am the "nice one," but it seems like not many people want the "nice one." So I have been patiently waiting for someone to tell me I am more than "nice."
I am looking for a guy that is patient with me and allows me time to come out of my shell. Someone who loves family as much as I do (doesn't mean they have to have a great family, but just means they understands the importance of family). I would like someone who is chivalrous and a hopeless romantic. This may seem shallow, but I am looking for a guy that is taller than me (sorry!)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My perfect first date would be going to a sporting event. It allows enough time to talk but also if there is the awkward silence its okay.. just means we are watching the sport. Maybe a coffee before or dinner?
