Welcome to my profile! Please wipe your feet on the mat before you come in...
I'm an adventurous soul. I've been blessed with ADD (called hyperactivity when we were kids) and I keep my mind and body active.
I usually put 100% into most things I do, except during the work week I put 120% into my job.
This is how it's broken down:
10% on Monday
25% on Tuesday
40% on Wednesday
30% on Thursday
15% on Friday
See how that works? Of course, I'm kidding, but I'm certainly not a workaholic.
Allow me to serve up a sampler platter of my personality:
Critical things about me:
-I'm here to date, a relationship will just happen when its right
-I'm NOT here to play games or amuse you if you have no intention of meeting. Life's too short...
-The last 6 years have been very humbling and taught me much
-I have a strong relationship with Jesus
-I know who I am and I'm not afraid to be myself around anyone
-I am second, and the woman I'm looking for knows who is first
Fun things about me:
- I have a LOT of energy
-Raised in Colorado and raised to love the outdoors as a child, adventure is in my personality
-Leaving my comfort zone is exciting
-It's not a receding hairline, I'm simply allowing my face to grow :)
-My life is lived in all 3 dimensions, I rarely watch TV or use computer unless it's for work or a movie
-My friends love how optimistic I am
-Thunderstorms amaze me and I like standing in the warm rain
-If you ask me my opinion, I will give you an honest answer unless I suspect a trick question
-My coffee has cream and sweetener, no matter if you think I'm a sissy
-I prefer to color outside the lines
-I am a grandfather and called "Pa-Pa"
-I love great conversation that can be sophisticated or simple, but needs to be interesting and flowing
-I have a great poker face, but terrible body language gives me away
-My sense of humor shows often, but it tends to be slightly off-center
-I am stubborn, but open-minded enough to be talked into changing my mind
-Whenever my kids asked "Are we there yet?", my answer was ALWAYS "Only a couple more hours"
-God shows me things daily, and I notice and thank Him
-I often spark "interesting and slightly awkward" conversations
-My pants go on one leg at a time, but I don't know how to put on a dress
-My emotions I'm aware of and can share them with you
-I laugh at my own humor, but at least most everybody else does too
-Stopping for school buses is annoying, but stopping for geese/goslings crossing the street makes me smile
-Good friends are a critical element for me, and I'm blessed with them
-I can’t figure out why people don't understand that it's called an "acceleration lane" for a reason!
-I'm a good listener and offer advice only when asked
-As a child, I couldn't understand why the astronauts would voluntarily drink Tang
-My parents taught me polite manners, and I still use them daily
-The things people do for me never goes unappreciated
-I have baggage, but it is neatly packed, and now NEVER opened and I don't need your help carrying it
-The "Love Language" I respond best to is Quality Time with Touch coming in a close second
-Even if I agree with you, I might mess with you and pretend I don't
-I appreciate looking at the moon and stars, and would enjoy doing it with you
-LOTS of energy (I know, I said it earlier, just reinforcing it)
Now a sample of whom I'm wanting to share my life experiences with:
-You must NOT chronically suffer from: Melancholy - Mediocrity - Hippocracy - Pessimism - Dishonesty
-Normal is a setting on a dryer - I expect you NOT to be
-Share the same outlook on health, diet, and fitness, I want my life partner to grow old with me
-Love stimulating conversation, both sophisticated and simple
-Secure in being who you are
Best luck to you
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Coffee or lunch, somewhere we can talk and not be distracted. The REAL first date starts after we meet.
