What I like most about myself is that I'm authentic, and that I'm balanced. I am smart without being a know-it-all, I'm sarcastic without being mean or b*tchy, I'm passionate without being slutty, I'm strong without being hard, and I'm affectionate and loving without being clingy.
I am a positive person who forgives easily, never needs to be right at the expense of someone else's dignity, and who likes to move from one happy thing to the next happy thing. I am strong willed, irreverent, opinionated, fiery, passionate, kind, sweet,capable, forgetful, happy, fun, courteous, thoughtful, loyal to the core, blunt, outspoken, nurturing, affectionate and loving.
What I’m doing with my life?
I'm smelling the roses... soaking up the joy of my grandsons' belly laughs, rediscovering the world through the eyes of a curious toddler and pre-schooler, I've gotten my priorities in order and I don't miss any of the things I used to think mattered.
I have the wisdom to know what happiness really is. Once, I looked for a bow wrapped package, but I've learned that happiness is made up of fleeting moments that can be easily missed... a certain smile, the unexpected smell of honeysuckle on a path in the woods, grass under bare toes, that new baby smell on an infants neck... I'm spending every moment I can relishing those little moments.
You need to know that I'm a larger woman... queen size, ruebenesque, thick, curvy,chubby, pick your own euphemism. I don't say this to be self deprecating or apologetic... I am brotherly, I"m just being honest. I put on quite a bit of weight with a back injury, and I just got fixed up and back into old healthy habits last year the extra weight is half off and I'm going strong (no couch potato here) ...I feel sexy as hell, I accept myself as is, and I demand that anyone who wants to share time with me feels the same way.
Want a hiking, yoga, or gym partner? that would be a big plus. I'm not dieting, I'm resuming the active lifestyle I had before my accident and eating clean, and I plan to resume healthy living permanently....so if you are into drugs, or think of lying on the couch or drinking beer as activities, you probably aren't for me.
What am I looking for? I'm open to anything fate may bring me that makes me happy and enriches my life. I am not husband hunting, though and i dont require hearts and promises in the first month, but i am looking for love, and to eventually wake up every morning with a man I'm with for the rest of m.y life. If you don't have that potential down the road, don't waste our time. I am a very sexual person, but i don't do hookups, don't ask unless you want your ears blistered.
My preference is to date one person at a time if a connection is established, and if you are only free every few weeks, that's not going to work out for me well. I'm also not here to accept the best of the lot and make do. My life is happy and though I prefer to have a partner in life, I'm content. I would much rather be alone than with someone I'm not absolutely wild about and vice versa.
