I think outside of the box and have a hard time recognizing most limitations. If someone says they or I “can’t" do something, I automatically say, “yes, I can”. This has often served me well, although it sometimes leads to the next line...
I have a tendency to do things backwards and the hard way… trying to learn that there are good reasons that most people do things the usual way.
I love, love, love, to laugh! And play… love games of all sorts
I am a good friend: I keep secrets, don’t judge, am supportive, fight fair, and try I try to remember that relationship is what important not being right or wrong.
People like me….I am usually charming… my strength is in being a good listener more than a good talker
I am a great mom, which is easy because I have a great kid
I have been lucky in my profession but I have not yet been lucky in love. However, I have had a lot of fun and don’t regret much
I love girly things like clothes and shopping and getting my nails done and baking
I love spending time with friends, going dancing, going on vacation, especially to tropical places and Las Vegas…. Love to gamble (especially Craps!) but don’t allow myself to spend money doing it very often because it is such an extravagance
I am a weird combination of spiritual and atheist. I don't believe in some powerful being that takes interest in our daily lives but I also have trouble believing that what we see is all there is.
Politically liberal though never a party line girl. I think my own thoughts and make my own decisions. I hate to discount anyone based on politics, but if you are Rush fan, I have a hard imagining we will get a long. I think mostly what opposites attract is divorce.
I am way more ambitious and driven than I knew when I was younger. Have a teaching credential,just finished my Masters degree and I am probably going to start an administration credential next (update: I now have my Admin. credential... yay!) and head toward my next goal of being a special education director
I am friends with x husband… divorced 15 years. I am proud that he and I have been able to co-parent our daughter and spend at least half our holidays together. It has been good for her
I live by the saying, “lead, follow, or get out of the way”. I am good at both the leading and following… drives me nuts when people just block!
I am affectionate, kind, and compassionate
I grew up leading a double life: one with my mom who was in theater and encouraged all things creative and intellectual. The other life was with my dad who was a crop duster and pot grower and with whom I spent holidays and summers in a wonderful greasy hanger playing ping pong and riding go carts. I love it all.
Successful in whatever you are choosing to do, politically mostly liberal, laugh and smile easily, are passionate and know what you like and don’t like, are curious about your world, are not overly judgmental or negative, and are good at responding to life with action. I am very attracted to strength in character, personality and ambition. Much more so than a pretty face or body.
I have decided that I will not respond at all to people who have 0 pictures posted where the face can be clearly seen. I find I am much more likely to respond when people post multiple pictures. Sorry, but it is only fair.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think that it is wise to start with a drink or a cup of coffee so that we can see if the all important chemistry is there first.
