Small town girl with big dreams. My friends tell me I am very kind and have great energy. I tell my friends that that last tequila shot did wonders for them! :o)
It's embarrassing to talk about oneself, but in the interest in finding a lifelong friend and hopefully more... here goes.. Health is important to me. I exercise regularly and eat pretty healthy. I love to road bike with my friends. I train several times a week with an awesome trainer who kicks my ass and love being outside - hiking, biking, running, playing, (insert your idea of outdoor fun here).
I want to have crazy chemistry with someone. I want to be driving down the road and pull over just to kiss you. I want to call you in the middle of the day when I've just had something incredible happen and share it with you. I want to cook dinner with you over a bottle of wine, music playing and slow dance in the kitchen.
I love the normal stuff... traveling, meeting friends for happy hour, reading, keeping fit, wine festivals, movies (indie or foreign are awesome!), etc. There's a lot of Norwegian in me, so a tan for me is when all of my freckles connect. I love the beach and the ocean, but if you are looking for a tanned goddess I can't help you.
Was married forever. It ended in a sad way. But endings can be beautiful beginnings, so here we go... I would like to date someone who is KIND above all (if you have a temper, please move to the next profile), a great friend, someone who is healthy, someone who has purpose in his life, someone who will always have my back (as I will have his) and absolutely will stick up for what's right. INTEGRITY, Grace, Kindness and Compassion are so important. If you smoke or do drugs, please don't contact me... those are deal breakers.
I prefer to date someone who has a job and is financially secure (as I am). I am attracted to those who look outward more than inward. It's important to me that the person I date thinks of other people more than he thinks of himself. I am VERY attracted to those that are selfless, giving and humble. Also, intelligence rules. (And it's very sexy to me!) I'm always learning and hope to continue that trend till I die. I'd love to meet someone that finds simple joy in just having a glass of wine or a cup of coffee with me. Bigger events will be awesome too, but to find a simple grace and enjoyment in just being with someone is what I hope for.
Life is what you make it. Be happy! Look at life through rose-colored glasses! :o)
A glass of wine? A cup of coffee? Rock Climbing? :o) We will know within seconds if there is chemistry, right? But, I will be kind and conversational, even if I don't feel a connection. I'm nice like that! :p
This online dating is weird, right? I would SO much rather meet someone in person, so that we both know if there is a spark right away. But, given our busy schedules, it's hard to be "out there" to do that. So, let's be kind to each other. This is an awkward thing... let's work to make it as un-awkward as possible!
