I'm not really sure how "protestant (Christian) " differs, but I would just call myself Christian. Anyways, I'm searching for a relationship (of course, friendship to start!) . I've decided to go back to school in my "old" age and it's a dauntingtask in itself, so I really just want to get to know someone who is self-assured, knows what they want in a prospective mate, and doesn't play head-games (or have a petty "testing" scheme or is a so-called "player" -- I don't need the unnecessary drama, life's challenging enough) . I admire honesty, integrity, and to have respect (for self and others) . I am down-to-earth and have a quirky sense of humour (I love to laugh, giggle, and joke around, but I also appreciate and need serious, deep, stimulating conversations in my life . . . in my experience, the "deeper" connection is harder for men, but I would really love to find someone I could emotionally confide and trust in).
