(I recently read a profile that said to contact the person before putting them on my favorites list and I did. I asked him why and he said he thought it was 'creepy' when people added you without sending an email to say hi or something. I've felt bad about my favorites list ever since. So for anyone who may end up on my favorites list, please - if you think it is creepy or I need to contact you, let me know. I will be glad to take you off). I just add people I think look interesting as I'm browsing.
Only goal is to be happy, have great friends and as little worries as possible. Things that make me happy: Outdoors/Especially Mountains, Exploring, Teamwork, Music, Dance, dirtbikes, swimming, hugs, relaxing by a fire, snow and snuggling up for the day, breakfast...to be continued...
I am not a 5'8" tall blonde with a big chest which seems to be what most men in Dallas are looking for (sigh...)and know I feel more comfortable in a top that is a bit more on the conservative side...I am a petite brunette who prefers baseball caps and jeans to dress up but can do either and can usually fit in most anywhere. My job takes me many places so I have learned to be comfortable where ever I land. My favorite meal is breakfast (although King Crab comes in second), my favorite day is Sunday, favorite movie at this time, "Kingdom of Heaven (I admire people who have the courage to fight for what they believe in whether it be religion or not. And if you are anti-religion, it's more historical - I don't bible thump, expect you to go to church every sunday (as I don't) and believe everyone should be allowed to believe in what they feel is best for them. However, I do believe in a higher power so if that is annoying to you, we are probably not a good match. I can except you but would like the same). Men who have more hair care products and jewelry than I do make me a little nervous, and having many experiences where men grilled for me - think I am now partial to men who can. The way to my heart may definitely through my stomach...
I love my job. Have seen a lot and learned a lot which has made me come away with a strong sense of what I believe in and where I am going - would like to find the same in a friend or mate. (I do seem to have a lot of quirky friends who don't have a clue so I guess I can't say that). Bottom line, I like people who are not closed minded and can look at life from all sides. Please know however, my job can be demanding with the potential for a lot of away time so relationships can be challenging but I guess if the right person comes along, one will adjust.
I like kids and am good with them but don't want to have any - too chicken to be pregnant. Maybe because I have had so many married men chat me up or really, seen both sexes go out on their other half. Seems relationships are not what they used to be. Too much to choose from I guess. I'd have to really be sure it was the right person. I thought at one time it might be nice to adopt since there are so many homeless children in the world, but most guys aren't into that. Have never dated someone with kids or ex-wife but would be game. Did have a teaching job for 2 yrs (high school/college), taught Biology, Chemistry and Physics...also coached drill team and cheerleaders, so not totally ignorant about children and have always got along well with kids.
Not real comfortable with the internet thing - prefer real people and in person...picked long-term originally but think it should read more like looking for friends, if it turns into something more great...Some of my responses have been a little bit..uh, fast...please know that I am not dying to get married and do not have a biological clock ticking... Also, if you expect to get laid after only knowing me for 3 hours - it ain't happening!! I don't like sending pictures to complete strangers (hmmm, I wonder why???) so I probably won't give you a picture - would rather meet in person. Don't ask me what the difference is? Maybe I think I can run faster and you won't remember me???? I know everyone thinks I am hiding something...blah blah blah - get over it. I do enjoy email and am open to just finding new friends to talk with. I will try to answer everyone, I have brothers so have a soft spot for guys who at least try. Prefer men to make the first move but independent enough to do it myself...all that can happen is they don't like what they read and don't respond back...which is ok, I want people in my life who want to be around me and like me for who I am. Those are the people that will still matter in 20 years...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Maybe spend an evening learning about the stars in a planetarium or just forget the planetarium - buy a bottle of wine or six pack of beer, go to the lake/mountains/other and see the real thing, enjoy the outdoors and learn a little more about each other.
