So I've been in Abbotsford a year now and have yet to meet people to hang out with. I find I'm still working way too much and need someone to help me change that. I want to work to live not live to work. If you're out there send a note.
Although my profile says I am wanting a relationship, I'm realizing that it's harder to "find" than one would expect. Hence, my outlook has changed. I'm hoping to meet new people who share some of my interests (like fishing, dogs and home renovations) and maybe make some new friends to hang out with in the process. What you read below is simply some insight into who I am and where, ideally, at some point (hopefully sooner than later) in my life, I would like to be.
I'm not looking to be taken care of but would welcome being cared for and eventually loved. Yes, I said the "L" word..if that's scary for you...please stop reading now. Wanting to meet someone to do things with, I'm content with my life but tired of living it alone. I work a lot, probably too much....it's time to get balance back in my life...work to live, not live to work as they say. I have to say this is easier to say than it is to put into action, must be my entrepreneurial spirit :).
I'm independent yet don't want to go it alone. I would love to meet someone who wants what I do. Not looking to move in together or get married after the first meeting thank you but do want to share my free time with a significant other with the hope that a relationship could develop and turn into something long term.
You should like (or even better love) dogs as I have two and we are a package deal (no different than you guys with kids still at home but I can send my "kids" off to boarding camp when I want to go away on a trip, I hope you have that flexibility too). One of my dreams would be to buy a home on acreage close to water and nature. City life drives me crazy. Your whole life is run by what time it is....yuk! Of course, weekend "getaways" to the city would be fun, but I want to get out of this "go, go, go" lifestyle.
I enjoy doing renovations, painting, building and seeing the results of my work. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. It would be fabulous if you are like minded. As well, I would hope you're a little bit old school, and know how to treat a woman, you're a romantic at heart. You enjoy travel to warm tropical places when it's cold in BC, exploring our beautiful province in the spring and summer months, fishing, going for long walks/hikes (with the dogs), dining in or out, reading, playing board/card games, music (extra points if you favor R&B of the 60's, 70's, 80's), the occasional movie, preferably at home, curled up on the couch with a beverage and appies readily available. You relish the thought of sleeping until 9:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning...lol.
I am complicated in an uncomplicated way and I live a simple life. I believe in karma and paying it forward. Yes, I have my faults, but if you can't deal with me when I'm at my worst, you'll certainly not be able to handle me at my best. I give as good as I get. I am fortunate to have been blessed with both brains and beauty (so I've been told). I can be wild and crazy, calm and demure, sophisticated and classy, down and dirty, a little girl, a mature woman. I can be athletic or lazy, conservative or liberal, silly or serious. I'm hard to define and perhaps best described as a predictably, unpredictable, multi-faceted enigma.
When I look back over my life, I don't want to be one of those people who says "I wish I had", I want to be someone who says "I'm glad I did". ~ Me
I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.” - Anaïs Nin
