I will be honest, dating is not a big priority in my life right now. Some days I really struggle with finding the energy to put in much effort because it just seems like more work than fun. This is an update to my profile. I had previously stated that I was looking for friends and didn't want pressure. I see some people say if you want a texting or email buddy move on, well I do want to meet but I also want a communication buddy and it would be nice if one day I found my partner in life but it's just not something you MAKE happen and it's not something that happens for everyone. I am not on a mission to make it happen, especially where the chemistry doesn't exist. I also work, and I am a supervisor at my work not to mention the nature of being in the Army (which I am) means that I sometimes work a lot and spur of the moment. Sometimes I get notified at 11 at night that I have to come in at 5 in the morning. I will try to acknowledge your text if we are exchanging texts, but that acknowledgement may not come within just a couple of hours, especially if I am at work, which is during the day. I would never ask you to make me your priority, not when we first meet, because I'm sorry to say I won't make you mine, not immediately, you have to earn that. I enjoy the company of a man. I just want to add the fun element of enjoying your company. I don't want to feel like I'm on an interview, which is what it feels like when you have nothing in your profile and you say whatever I want to know just ask, well give me a conversation starter at least. If you are looking for someone to hang out with when you have some free time and just have fun with no expectations of anything else then I am your girl. I am a talker and I know that, so reading more is optional.
Some things about me: my favorite color is purple, this is the color of passionate people, and I am indeed passionate. I like to work out but haven't been able to in months due to recovering from rotator cuff surgery, I am still in physical therapy. I like to ride my motorcycle, a little 250 Ninja, don't ask me to ride on the back of yours. I have two sons, one just joined the Army himself and one that still lives with me. I will not and cannot have anymore kids. I like to travel, I just got back from Kaua'i, HI and I'm planning a trip to the Dominican Republic this year, I went to Cabo last year, and I will probably go to Toronto and maybe even Puerto Rico next year. I don't believe that owning more things will ever make anyone happy. I'm addicted to chocolate, lol. My favorite music is R&B and hip hop, but I also like rap, rock and pop music. I think bald is sexy and can't understand why everyone doesn't. I love the outdoors, hiking, biking (not mountain), kayaking, laying on the beach and I want to try kite surfing (I think it's called) and paddle boarding. I love mountains! and Redwood forests. I love watching the sunrise and set and always try to actually pay attention (it's different everyday), that's what will make you happy, appreciating the simple, beautiful things in life where everyone else sees nothing. I try to treat all people with respect and kindness and assume that most conflicts come down to misunderstandings, and even if I'm wrong about that, you being an ***hole hurts you more then it hurts me. I love my family (parents and one sister) and try hard to get along with them even though we have nothing in common lol. I have moved a lot and am constantly being moved away from friends I made and haven't lived near my family in forever, as a result I think it is much more worth my time to put effort in to friends who will be my friends when I am old then someone who will only be in my life for a short time and won't know me when I am old. As a single lady (who has never been married) I have to nurture my future support structure (friends).
I don't think that ignoring messages on plenty of fish is rude, I don't need you to tell me you are not interested, that's what ignoring me tells me, I'm smart like that to figure it out. I also don't think you should ask me to make a decision after reading just your profile and one message but if I wanted to give everyone a chance it could take a while, and maybe I will never have the time, but at least I didn't close the door by telling you I'm not interested.
