I was raised to be independent, caring, strong and opinionated. I can change a tire, talk current affairs, balance the books and cry over the human society commercial that I just watched...all at the same time. I can also spend a morning mucking out a stall, fishing in the afternoon and then go glam it for a night out.
To say that I wear my heart on my sleeve would probably be an understatement. One of the things people will say about me is how big my heart is...and because of that it gets broken easily. No, I would not change it for the world. I fully believe this is one of the reasons I am successful and so well rounded. Id rather try and have a broken heart then to have never tried and have a hardened heart.
The last thing I will say is I love adventure and travel. I have literally traveled around the world and have been skydiving more than 10 times. Experiencing and learning about all that the world and life has to offer is most important to me. There is only one thing more important and that is my family. We are all extremely close and intermeshed in each others lives. If you can not handle that, then I am not for you!
I am looking for a man who is comfortable and confident in who they are and who knows how to treat a woman. A confident man (in my opinion) has drive, passion and traditional values in modern times. "Mommy", "Daddy", "Family" complexes or you "havent figured yourself out yet" is NOT what I am looking for. I have been down that road many, many times and its a road I do not intend to go down again.
While I would like someone who shares similar traditions, values and experiences, I also would like someone who can show me new things and be ok if I show them new things as well.
Looks are important to me, however dont assume to know what I like. I am very much more than a pretty face and whoever I am with must be much more as well. I am picky about height. Because I am tall myself I do not usually go for men shorter than 6'2". I love to wear shoes with up to 5" heels and i dont really compromise on shoe height for anyone. I guess you could call me a "height-ist" :)
I believe that in order to find love and true happiness you must be able to find that in yourself first. We only have one life and must live it for ourselves, if only for the fact that no one else has to live it. I love life and I live for all of the bumps and challenges that may come with it.
