The one thing I am passionate about...
Wow, so many things to list. I love good, deep conversation with people that can stay on the same page with me...it's kind of uncommon for me. I love to garden and grow things, I love just spending time with people and getting to know them. I believe time is such a critical essence of this life, it is the one thing that we can never take back, never make up, and never gain more of. I truly appreciate those who are self sufficient and can think for themselves and live their life accordingly. I also love to go shooting and wish to get better and to learn more.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to relax and spend quality time with family. Family is very important to me, and I cherish them dearly. This could include watching tv with them (even if I'm not a huge fan of tv), movies, conversations about things, going out, whatever is called for. I also love to relax and have no plans on a weekend or to even just go out on a whim with friends or family. I do enjoy being at home mostly though, writing in my book, reading, maybe playing a video game, needlework crafts or eating while watching a show (I hate being still during tv for some reason) and I enjoy going out, but definetly more of a homebody!
The most influential person in my life has been
A few important qualities that I am looking for is intelligence, loyalty, stability, and reliableness/dependability. I am these things, and it is important that I find someone who treasures these things in other people as well. I feel that being able to be there for another through thick and thin is a real commitment, an important quality in a partner, and one that I take seriously. Being able to communicate what you're going through, talking about relationship issues before it turns into a shipwreck are a must. I'm also looking for a best friend in this person too.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people notice that I am kind and caring, after they notice my eyes.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm actually reading two books right now. The first is Chainfire by Terry Goodkind, a brilliant fantasy author, my most favorite and admired author. I think that his Faith of the Fallen book should be a requirement in high schools, as it shows why communism/socialism fails despite the best intentions. The other is Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse by James Wesley, Rawles. The title pretty much says it all...I really like it so far! Great resource! I truly appreciate those who read, as it is becoming a lost art these days I feel. With saying that, I wish I myself did more of it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being alive and healthy
- Family-continuous love and support
- Being an American!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think this sums up this question the best for me, without really straining to think of answer. "We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.? ?anonymous I also believe this in quote: ?Love is not about what you want. It's about finding happiness for the one you love.? I'm very affectionate, but slow to get there...
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Good listener, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
Once in an established relationship, I'm very affectionate and love to feel close in all dimensions of the word with my partner, along with my gentleness/softness traits. I feel that trust is something to be earned, not given out freely. Relationships take work, not 50/50 but 100/100. I'm not looking for an identical match to me, I know there will be give and take, but as long as we match up in the important areas: politically, faith, family with regards to morals/values. Here is a favorite quote from a favorite author: ?Nothing marks a man's character better than his attraction to intelligence.? ? Terry Goodkind. Any questions, just ask!
