Well - my intro is a tad LONG but I'm hoping the mental folk and chavs are scared off by it :)
About me: Bit of a hippychick really - despite my job. Like being outdoors, surrounded by nature, enjoying the simple things in life. I'm extremely happy with my lot, and have an amazing bunch of family and friends. I suppose, really, I'm on POF to see if there are any like minded people left out there; I'm not really that conventional and don't really see myself living a conventional 9-5 life. I'd like to live in a rustic converted bus or log cabin for a while too, and just try out the self sufficient lifestyle!
Interests include good music, my campervan, jamming round open fires, socialising with my pals, festivals, kayaking, cooking, sketching and painting, old junk shops/second hand bargains, nature/countryside, ruins/history, comedy, books, riding horses and XC/BMX bikes. I wont go on but I'm pretty varied in my tastes!
My humour's quite silly, quirky and random and I'm a tad tomboyish in my interests but feminine. I love it when friends (or someone) makes you laugh so much you can't breath properly. I have a fun and playful nature but can be quite spirited and fiesty at times too. However, there's also a loving, chilled, slightly spiritual side to me.
About my date? Well I gravitate towards kind, easygoing, considerate people (both men and women) who really enjoy life and all it has to offer. With varied interests too (not just drinking/pubs, although I love country pubs/ale!) . I like people comfortable in their own skin, who know who they are. Helps if you're open minded and non judgemental; I don't like snipey, narcissistic or selfish behaviour. Similar humour is a must - laughter is life's natural medicine! If you're a person who'll try new things, has an adventurous free spirit, wants to see the world and really live life positively, then I think we'd get on rather well. I'm not materialistic in the slightest (again, despite my job!) so prefer people who aim for life experience, rather than those who accumulate new flashy 'toys' or bonuses to make up for a stupidly long days in an office somewhere.
Not sure I want full on dates right now, I think online dating can feel a bit 'forced' - I'm happy to use this website just to make more friends as well as meet potential dates. However, if the right person comes along who I just click and connect with, then that would be all good.
Been asked to describe my ideal first date. Hmmm, not fussed - if we get on and have a nice time that's all good. Chemistry, good conversation and a connection will make the evening - not the venue.
