I'm a simple gal whose content and happy w/ the life I have; but everyone keeps telling me I need to explore outside my comfort zone. So for 2008 I agreed to try dating again; but I admit it scares me. I feel I am a unique individual. I know who I am and love the person I have become. I find the older I get, the more I cherish the traditional values I was raised on. I still believe a woman has her role and a man has his. Although keeping up with the times can be a good thing, I feel much of society has lost the ability to truly become one with your partner, thus resulting in people settling. I still believe sparks exist and when you find the right person, those warm fuzzy feelings never go away. I feel I am open minded but can be old fashioned from time to time. If your honest, sincere, light hearted, and open minded, then I would love to hear from you! Looking For: My ideal partner will must be kind, caring, smart, clean cut, and well rounded. A passion for reading is a big plus. My partner must have the ability to enjoy the simple pleasure of home and/or the special occassion of going out. I love to mentally spar and connect on all levels so intelligence is a must.
