About me and what I'm looking for
I am a nurse educator who has focused mostly on my education and career in the past. Now that I have established that, I would like to focus on my personal life. I am ready to meet someone who is fun and exciting but sincere and honest. A good job and a responsible attitude is a must in my eyes. Speaking of eyes, I have been told that my eyes are my best feature. I have very unique almond-shaped eyes accented by their color. They are hazel with a yellow star-burst extending from the center.
In our free time, my ideal match and I would cuddle up on the couch and watch movies one day, but go do something exciting like white water rafting or exploring a cave the next. I like to have time to just spend together getting to know each other but I also think it is important to keep a relationship exciting and new. I have seen relationships fail because all of those things that are so special in the beginning (a phone call just to say good morning, a note left for your lover to find, opening a car door, etc.) aren't continued into the relationship. I put 100% into a relationship and hope to find someone who is willing to do that in return.
The thing that I appreciate most in a partner is honesty. I know that sounds cliche but it is true. I want to find someone who I can trust with my innermost secrets and who feels the same about me. Without honesty, you can't have trust, and without trust, you can't have a successful relationship.
I think that the keys to a lasting relationship are love, respect, and understanding. If all of those are in place, a couple should be able to work through any of the challenges that a relationship brings.
