I'm a teacher of squirrelly middle school youngsters, as well as a jewelry and fiber artist. Friends describe me as laid back, authentic, elemental, warm, courageous, witty, wise ass, and stubborn. I see myself as happy, strong, smart, curious, and open-minded...content with a simple life. Small town girl, who enjoys jaunts to the city as much as a weekend in a mountain cabin. Creative and in my element in the kitchen. Care deeply about the natural environment. Love LIVE music!!! ...at concerts, pubs, or festivals... Blues, jazz, bluegrass, Americana, jam bands, classical, and more! I garden, can and preserve food (there's nothing like going out to the yard and bringing in lunch), love walking and hiking, and strolling along the ocean shore when I can. I raise chickens for meat and eggs. I never wear makeup. I love to touch and be touched. My dream house would be underground, small, and very energy efficient. Hey, a girl can dream, can't she? Like you, most of my time is spent doing normal everyday tasks, working, seeing friends now and then, taking care of the home & family. My grown kids are very cool, and the grand bebe is the best! Sure would like to kick it up a notch, have someone along for the ride, and share my life. I don't believe we are meant to be alone and since none of us are getting any younger, what are we waiting for???
The real trick will be to find someone who understands I am not the typical girl next door. I need space and freedom while knowing he will be a safe place to fall and will extend the same to him. Together, we will have lots of fun, build trust, communicate well, have some hard times, and work together to get through it all. I look forward to the emotional connection and closeness of a relationship. While I'm good on my own, and I have dear friends to love and care for, I miss that facet of life.
I enjoy being around fun, smart, and kind men. The guy for me is...
*sure he is working toward something long term, not looking for a plaything.
*thoughtful, brave, and good-hearted with a bit of a warped sense of humor.
*can share in stimulating each other's mind, spirit, and body
*truly enjoys and appreciates the Rubenesque woman.
*probably big and/or tall.
My subscription runs out mid-May '15. I've been hanging around this fishing hole long enough, and after that, I'm outta here...I hope to hear from him soon...
