Here is something little you should know about me. I'm an Independent woman who is passionate, about life, about my world, about the world. Passionate in approach to my relationship, in my concern for people, in the way I interacts with my partner. I am always very impressed with someone who is "open-minded", willing to look at things with an open mind, not necessarily accept new things, but not afraid to try to understand new things. We all have different points of view, different values. I'm not looking for someone who just thinks he has to agree with me to get along. I LOVE open discussion and debate, and value everyone's opinion, even when it is different from my own. I also value someone who is not afraid to express their opinion/beliefs, so long as they are prepared to back them up with reasonable understanding of supportive facts. In other words I'll listen to anyone, but I'll only give credence to those who are thoughtful and willing to consider different sides of any idea. There is ALWAYS more than one side to an opinion or belief. I DO NOT APPRECIATE SHALLOWNESS! People who have an opinion but are unable to articulate a reasonable and informed basis for that opinion.
