Hey Guys, I'm just going to lay my cards on the table, because I'm honest and direct. Awhile back, I had major hip surgery due to an injury resulting from using a torture device ~ just kidding! Actually, it was a Pilates reformer machine /same thing. Anyway, there were complications after surgery and now I have daily rehab+, so I am a bit limited ~ i.e., I won't be riding horses-motorcycles-bikes, Mt &/ or rock climbing (all of these things I used to do & more) anytime soon. Also, as you will notice, I originally wrote some of my profile pre-injury+... Of course, I still like to do a lot of the same things... but it will be quite awhile before I can get back to doing those things+ again ~ just being honest. That said, I still have A LOT to offer ;) ~so please read my profile and if it resonates with you, then please send me a message and we'll go from there!! Oh & please say more than 'Hi'... it's the beginning of a conversation, so tell me about yourself or something you liked about my profile or why I should write you back or 'something' that shows you at least read my profile ~ thanks!!
Initially, I'd like to exchange messages &/or chat/message when I'm online (I'll admit, I'm not on very often)! And I definitely look forward to more than messages, after we get to know each other a bit ;) I look forward to talking on the phone and meeting in person and hopefully, feeling a real connection-chemistry++!!
PS ~ As you noticed in my profile name & my most recent pic/s, I have a giant breed, amazing dog (Italian Mastiff -Great Pyrenees mix). He's 2yo, 90#+/still growing -up to 120#?! If you don't like dogs, look elsewhere. If you have a dog/s or at least open to enjoying one in the future ~please respond! Bonus points for pics w/ your dog/s ;) & I'll probably post more pic/s of me/him later!
Written previously /few changes here 'n there ~~
So, now... where to begin for my profile?! Typically most women describe themselves... So instead I asked my friends to describe me; this is what they said: I'm honest, down to earth, kind, passionate, quirky, confident, gullible ~wait, should I say that? Hehe ~ I can be funny too ;) adventurous, loving & helpful and very optimistic ~always able to see-show the 'sunny side' of a situation! I tell you, that's certainly helped out with my injury & everything that has happened as a result. But hey, what else can you do ~It is what it is...&Life is Wonderful &a Blessing,no matter what happens!
Ok, now I'll share a few more things ~I LOVE to try new things & Enjoy almost Everything! I even used to hang glide*, mountain - rock climb, ride motorcycles & other thrill-seeking* activities, but now, I've pretty much settled down. Of course, I Still Enjoy the Rush* of things - I just try to keep my feet on the ground & live a more balanced & grounded place now ;) I like to laugh, play, be creative, write, ~ A LOT ~ can you tell? ;) I also like to bowl, ride horses, cook, work hard & help people! :) Obviously some of these things I can't do right this moment due to my injury, but I will definitely do them again, eventually...
Overall, I'm a happy, positive & optimistic gal! I may be dealing with my injury for now, but I look forward to all kinds of things in the future!! Taking 'just for fun' classes (learning Italian & Spanish, different cooking styles, how to publish a book, etc.), playing piano-cello again would be neat, definitely writing and hopefully publishing a book or 2 or 5?!... Oh & I'm starting my own business so any Biz tips would be helpful!! I've always had a very strong entrepreneurial spirit, so it's very exciting but it's also a big learning process! & who knows what else - I'm open to suggestions ;) I have Awesome-Supportive friends & let's see, could I ask for more?! Well, of course I can ... otherwise I wouldn't be on here!! I would love to have a Wonderful guy in my life (& eventually, a Life Partner) ~ someone to enhance my life and we can share our lives together! Isn't that why all of us are on here?!!
What I'm Seeking ~ A kind, honest, down to earth, loving, handsome, street &book smart, affectionate, entertaining, independent, romantic, funny man whose Intention* is to eventually get involved w/me alone* in a meaningful, very passionate-intimate relationship. Ideally, I'd like to find someone, Not to Complete my Life, but to ENHANCE it! A Real, Strong Connection! I've been divorced for several years; I'm ready for 'More' and I am not interested in casual dating. Like I said, I'd like to Date w/an Intention of having a Real Relationship. If you don't understand this concept, don't want or can't handle this -then I am not the woman for you. As for qualities/characteristics ~ a special blend of similar interest, many differences, compatibility, trust, communication, chemistry, respect -the many things that keep a Real Relationship going for the long haul*! Oh, & someone w/ a Childlike Spirit, because I will Always have one :) Ideally, I will bring out the Best in you and I'm sure you'll do the same.
Some of my Interests: Exploring new places-Mts & coast, trying & learning new things, writing, horseback riding, bowling, reading, going to concerts & plays, going to the park with my dog, dining-hanging out w/ Friends~Enjoying Great food & convos, playing games, watching movies
Some of my FAV things: Being Cozy by the Fireplace w/ my dog & someone special, watching a movie & listening to rain and thunderstorms, writing/reading, passionate kisses, Italian food, stargazer lilies, carnations, Seafood, sundresses, bowling, riding horses, good company-food
I do have some formal education ;) ~ but honestly... I think I've learned More from the SCHOOL OF LIFE & REAL LIFE experiences! I've been thru A LOT but I believe it's only made me the Strong, Open, Happy, Giving person that I am! Work-wise: I worked in the legal and law enforcement field for 15+yrs -yes, it was exciting, challenging -most of all Rewarding* -and then, I took a break. I have a real passion for helping folks!!
As for me - 'what you see is what you get'!! I try my Best to be True to who I am & Encourage others to do the same! I also try to learn & grow more every day!! Let's see... I'm probably 1 of the most REAL & easy going, intelligent, goofy, open, sensual, fun-loving, passionate & sexiest gals you'll ever meet!!
I know it was A LOT to read, but Thank you. So, if what you read sounds Intriguing* & you want to learn more, send me a message (& please remember, say more than 'Hi')~ Take a chance, you never know what could happen!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME ~Ciao Gentlemen!!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
After exchanging some messages and chatting via IM and phone, etc - Hopefully we'll decide to meet! Perhaps we can meet for a Jamba- coffee-drink, etc. I'd prefer something simple/casual, no pressure for either of us. Ideally, we just want to meet in person, talk for a bit & feel some sort of great chemistry, right?! ;) If it doesn't happen, it's OK ~ I've met some fantastic people and stayed friends or made network connections too! But hey, if / when it does happen & things turn out awesome at our 'lil 'meet 'n greet' ;) In other words, we Connect & there was major Chemistry+ ... I'm guessing things will fall into place from there... You ask me out ~ plan a date for us?! or maybe we decide together during our 'lil meet'n greet 'cause it went so well?! Who knows ~ guess it depends on how we both feel ;) I'm pretty easy going -I like just about everything. It's really about awesome company, stimulating convos, having fun+! I like going to dinner & getting to know each other, listening to live music, going on a picnic, playing pool-darts-shuffleboard, going to... hey, we haven't even exchanged messages yet -let's start there 1st, haha!! ;o) Ciao for now!!!
