so....about me. I moved to Oahu 9 months ago from Maui (originally from Long Beach, California.) I love Hawaii and it has been a really great experience for me so far. I love to travel and to see the world and all its wonders. I am a very affectionate and passionate person...Definately a hopeless romantic....and I'm pretty easy to please and i absolutely love touch. I'm told that I'm a very bubbily and happy person. I think of myself as being pretty mature for a 25 year old. i guess i can thank working in a hospital for that. I've been told by many that i'm a "young woman with an old soul." as for what i'm looking for in a relationship... someone who is passionate and romantic (like me). I want to be treated like a lady, the way a woman should be treated. it seems chivalry is dead nowadays and it's really a shame. I want a man who is thoughtful and affectionate and who is also honest. a person who will make me feel special for no reason, someone i can rely on, and makes me laugh. someone i could tell anything to....my best friend. I am very attracted to intelligence and i believe trust and respect are also key, but sadly many people have been so badly affected by previous relationships with negative outcomes that it is difficult for them to enjoy and embrace a new one. I realize it is very difficult to find "the one" and many people will never find that special person. but, i also believe if you don't make an effort and put yourself out there, you won't find it. our youth only lasts so long, and time waits for no one. nothing risked, nothing gained! that being said....I am unsure about serious relationships- if it happens, it happens- but I do believe that friendship and compatibility are key to a new relationship. also, as I have mentioned previously i am very touchy and affectinate, and i love to cuddle and be close. if you are not that type of person (for ex: if you have to sit 2 feet away from a woman, than i am not the girl for you). one more thing i should mention...my pet peave is flaking. a man must stick to his word. if you make plans you must follow through. so...if you are interested please don't hesitate to say hello. if not then good luck to you on your journey!
