I am considerate yet straightforward. I like to be thorough in expressing my thoughts and want to be around people that motivate me and help my spiritual progression. I'm generally a strong-willed, happy person and don't like conflict. I like to see movies, skate, hang out with friends (although right now all my friends are married couples which doesn't give me a lot of opportunities). I am a convert and have been a member of the church for a year and a half. Most of my time is spent working and taking care of my 3 year old daughter. I am going to school at a much slower rate than I'd like to but I feel it's more important to be there with my daughter as much as I can right now. I'll pick up the pace in about another year or so in which I'll be finishing prereq's for nursing school. I have no problem with getting my hands dirty and would like to be able to work outside more if I could just get out of this apartment! I hate having to leave to play outside. I want a guy that is the same. Not afraid to do some hard manual labor. I'm pretty confident but humble about it. I don't like arrogance. I think that the "traditional" type is me and what I look for in a guy. I like to try to be as open about myself, my wants, needs, and expectations as possible and that is what I expect in return. I am not interested in being superficial with anyone. I don't have time to get to know "several people" as we have supposedly been counseled to do. There are just not enough hours in the day to be able to get to know more than one person at a time on a level that will really help me know if they are one I would marry or not. (Although with some it doesn't take but one message to know that I wouldn't!) And by the way, that is my ultimate goal, to be sealed in the temple.
