I’m fun, easy going, humorous, sincere and honest. I can speak just as well from my heart as I can my mind. I have a very wide range of interests and enjoy meeting new people. Life is about having fun and learning. I like to look at the bright side of things and think life is meant to enjoy. I am optimistic and forgiving. I am fiercely loyal to my family and friends. I'm not always politically correct, but am very passionate about equality and justice. I know I can't save the world....so I strive to make life the very best it can be. I’m a strong believer in the power of our own minds and attitudes. I appreciate people who know how to relax and enjoy life while still taking their commitments seriously. I appreciate people who take responsibility for their own happiness, and for their own decisions and the results of those decisions.
Staying in shape is important for the quality of my life. I prefer to be outdoors walking/hiking/biking, but these days I’m grateful for the gym. I have TV, but no cable. What I do have is Netflix. I’m learning to love the unfamiliar art of curling up on the couch with popcorn and streaming good movies. I’m sure you have some “must see” movies that you need to turn me on to. I listen to lots of music; I love the old rock ‘n roll, but I also throw in a good mix of jazz, blues, and alternative. I love to dance - one of the best natural highs! Feeling and swaying to the music together can be very romantic. I am usually the blue jean or cut-offs kind o' gal, but I like to dress up and feel "girly" too.
What I’m looking for in a man? Attitude. It is something that a partner cannot change. Chemistry is vital, and humor is mandatory. If you don't laugh easily, you can't love well. I am looking for someone who is loyal to their word and a person that laughs more than complains. A person that can go through a terrible experience and say that "I know there is something good in this that I can learn and be thankful for". But as fun as life is, we all want that special connection that makes everything so much better. It is a meeting of the souls – you know that you are a better person and that life is better when that very special person is sharing with you. Shared meaning, profound trust, admiration, respect; these define love. He also must be financially secure and stable (as I am).
Although I don't drink, I don't mind if my partner does......as long as it isn't something he "needs" to have fun. I'm not alcoholic - it just doesn't make me feel good (and I understand it is supposed to!??!).
I don't believe that I can "look" for a long term relationship - I'm looking for a good man. I think I know what a man wants – it’s not that different, except for the details, from what a woman wants. When it is right, the long term relationship develops. Growing in love is like a long conversation, done right it seems the conversation does not last long enough.
