I enjoy the little things. Long car rides with no destination. Walks and adventures in old cemeteries. A beautiful sunset. A great book. An amazing meal cooked at home or out. Late nights and adventures to no where. I love music...almost all types. I find great peace in nature and love humanity in general. I am an “old soul” and tend to be drawn to those who have a kind and patient heart but an even kinder soul. Good morning and good night texts and someone who actually cares about my day and how my life is going. An intrinsic mind. I love the intricacies of the mind but not mind games...there is a difference. A wild side but also someone willing to lay on the couch and watch movies. Respect, good manners and willingness to actually get to know me is a must. Humor is absolutely necessary! I am serious and can be intense at times but laughter balances that for me. I work hard, study hard, play hard and love hard. I am “forced” to be an extrovert but at heart I need some quiet time and space to think sometimes. I am an Ohio State fanatic...no Michigan fans allowed! :) I am strong, independent and am looking for someone who isn’t afraid to challenge or disagree with me but who at their core respects and loves my values and my honesty. At the same time I am deeply sensitive, intuitive and don’t have time or energy for bs. I am difficult at times but I believe we all have those components in some ways due to the story of life and how it unfolds for us. I suck at all things technological and rarely watch TV. Honesty is imperative. Faith is a high priority in my life and I believe in God but I am open to various beliefs. I prefer a nonsmoker and I rarely drink but a few times a year. I am not really a girl who likes the bar scene but an occasional drink out is ok. A hardworker who believes in steady employment is a must. Personally I am always seeking to improve myself and life in general as well as the lives of those around me. I am looking for someone to complement not control me. I am fierecly loyal to those I love so if you are jealous of my dedication to my children, my family & friends, my dead husband or my work you need not bother. I come with some baggage and so do you. If you are judgemental, racist, insanely political or like to cut others down that is a definite turnoff. Eventually I would like a long term relationship but that someone would have lots of investment in me and me in them to make that a reality.
