Ready for a Relationship

I have decided that I am ready for a boyfriend.

For quite some time, I didn't want to have a boyfriend, as I wanted to mature as a person first.

And, I wanted to concentrate on school.

I'm still in school, but I have decided that I'm ready for a relationship now, and that I don't have to finish school before I can begin one. Although, I do plan to keep up with the schoolwork, of course!!

I am looking for a guy:
  who doesn't mind staying in sometimes (I'm not real big on going out),
  who's kind/caring,
  close in age to me (no more than three years difference either way),
  loves children and animals,
  loves to cook and/or bake,
  is patient,
  will love ALL of me/love me for me,
  who can be spontaneous,
  loves to travel,
  will always lift me up when I am feeling down,
  loves to read,
  loves to watch movies
He doesn't have to get me anything for my birthday, but he has to at least acknowledge it.

There may be other things I look for in a guy, but if he has these qualities, then I'll be very happy.

My parents had not forced me, or made me wait to start a relationship; this was all my decision. They never forced me to have a boyfriend, nor did the force me not to have one either. I think they wanted me to make my own decisions in terms of relationships.

Which I am very thankful for, as I don't think I would have been able to handle it if they forced me into a relationship.

Here's to hoping I find a good guy, who'll love me for me, and who'll love ALL of me.

Bucket List Accomplishments

Every so often, I would look for bucket list ideas on Pinterest, and other websites.

I have been doing so the last few days, and I have decided to post the ones I have already done. It's not much, but it's a start.

  • Be a bridesmaid (I was a bridesmaid when I was thirteen, at my oldest brother's wedding)
  • Go to California (I was able to go in 2004, as a high school graduation gift from my oldest brother)
  • See/go across the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Go tent camping
  • Visit Washington, D.C. (I got to go on the eighth grade trip)
  • Meet Rich Koz (who does Sevengoolie; I got to meet him when I was 12/13 years old, as I was friends with his daughter)
  • Go horseback riding on a mountain (I got to do this in Montana, and in California)
  • Try snow skiing (my junior high hosted a one day trip to Wisconsin when I was in eighth grade, which I got to go on)
  • Try water skiing (I got to try in Michigan one time; I didn't do that well, but I was happy that I got to try)
  • Ride in a limo (I got to do this both on the way to, and from the airport, when my family and I went to Montana several years ago)
  • Go to a high school play/concert (I've gone to a few, although they were after I graduated from high school myself. I should have gone while I was still there, as the ones I went to after, were really good!)
  • Make Top Ramen Salad (my sister made this several times before, and I loved it so much that I wanted to make it myself. I just made it the other day, for the second time.)
There may be a few more, but this is all I can think of at the moment. I hope to be able to cross off many, many more soon!!
