So much in life is better when you have that perfect someone to share it with. What makes a guy perfect for me? I am drawn first to guys who are sarcastic and playful. I love that rapport of witty banter and teasing - it's one of the first things to stir up the butterflies. But it's more about how I feel when I'm with him than a list of characteristics. I want to feel cherished, appreciated, attractive, and comfortable - I want him to feel that way as well (I know it's not all about me!). I have very little drama in my life, not much baggage, and I like it that way. I would love a laid back, easy relationship with someone I consider my best friend but who also stirs up that Scorpio passion in me.
Okay, I admit - the list of characteristics is kind of relevant too. Other things that are important to me: flexible, open-minded, affectionate, confident, optimisitc, doesn't let the little things get to him, and isn't concerned with what other people think. I should mention that hunting and cat allergies are dealbreakers (though I ironically just learned I'm allergic to cats!).
Animals are my biggest passion. I am a fish-eating "vegetarian" and feel compelled to say hello to every dog I see. I'd say hello to the cats too, but they're not usually out walking around.
I'm very close with my family. My parents 42 year (and counting) marriage has taught me that communication, listening, consideration, and respect are essential. My family is back east, but I love Colorado and am completely at home here, so I'm not going anywhere - much to their chagrin. Now I just need a root...
