I do not think that a paragraph or so is enough to tell you about who I am or what I am looking for in a man. I am a Christian lady looking for a man with as much faith as I do. I need someone who will follow Jesus with me and be active for the kingdom. This is [u][b]VERY[/b][/u] important to me. If you are not a follower of Christ--you need not contact me. Because I need someone who will pray with me and for me; who will go to church and be involved like I am; who has Biblical principles; who loves and knows God and lives his life accordingly. I am a compassionate, caring woman who gives continually of myself to friends, family, and patients. I need someone who would want to take care of me. I love to laugh. You will find I try to bring levity to everything. I appreciate a sharp sense of humor. I'm extremely affectionate, not minding PDA, and I hope to have someone who is the same. I enjoy spending time with friends and family playing games or simply just hanging out. I need someone who will respect those I love, but will also allow me my own breathing space (as I would do the same) . I am an active person who believes in staying healthy. I don't want a couch potato, especially since I also love being "out there" meaning traveling, exploring, roadtripping. I love to cook. So I hope my man loves to eat. . . and wash dishes. I am a strong, independent woman who is ready to share my life with that special someone. I will marry only once. So it has to be with the right man willing to fight life along side of me, no matter what comes our way. I want a family. Can't say I want pets.
I have learned tremendous about compromise and sacrifice; how love is an active decision made repeatedly. It's more than a feeling or romance or attraction. *The God-shaped hole we have can only be filled by God alone. No other person can fill that void or that emptiness or that need. *When wanting another person to give of himself, you can't expect anything. If you really love this person and want to be with him--you choose him--you've got to accept whatever he gives. And hopefully he chooses me too. *Love is a choice. Choosing to put someone else ahead of yourself. Choosing to stick it out and fight to make things work. Choosing to self-sacrifice for the need of another. Choosing to push aside fears and risk giving your heart, your all to that one particular someone. Somewhere I read, "He who wants a rose must respect the thorns. " I am not perfect. Nor do I want or expect perfection. I have my idiosyncracies, some annoying, most endearing (or maybe it's the other way around) . I also lead a pretty demanding life at a stressful job and have a hectic life at home. I need someone who will [b]choose[/b] to cherish me and be with me, to take care of me and share life with me. Because that is what I would do for him.
