I remember hearing this song as a child, looking up at the clouds on an endless summers day, thinking to myself "this is what love is like...someday, I will have a love like this..." I'm STILL waiting.... Have a listen :http://www.youtube.co/watch?v=plcFlVa2RFw
Hmmmm....always hard to encapsulate one's personality in a few paragraphs.
I am warm and kind, I love children and animals, and they generally feel the same about me. Maybe because I still remember being a kid :P I'm loyal to a fault to those I love! I enjoy traveling; I have been to Europe 4 times. One of my dreams is to have a small farm someday because I love to putter about gardening and nurturing living things. I'm a pretty good cook, but I won't cook meat dishes,lol. Yeah I'm a vegetarian earth mother type... I used to be a social and environmental activist/fundraiser for 13 years. I am very honest and would expect the same. Trust is important to me. I am very sweet and enjoy giving and receiving small romantic gestures and gifts, especially ones that are hand made, or thoughtful rather then costly (i.e. I'd rather u make me a bird house than buy me a gold bracelet, write me a cheesy love poem rather than waste money on diamond earrings- and yeah I AM serious about this -if you want to spend some money let's travel somewhere and build some amazing memories). I love to get massages, and I will give them as well :)
Have settled in the past, because of my sometimes unfortunate wish to see the best in everyone, until it was too late,lol. By now, though I am still pretty open minded, I have an idea of what I want.
Would appreciate a man with an innate sense of honor, who keeps his word when he makes it, because it's the right thing to do. Seems to be a lost virtue in today's society. You don't have to open my car door, or make decisions for me, but feeling safe when I am in your arms would be nice :) I am mostly self educated, but I think I have done a pretty good job of it; having someone who is also passionate about learning and experiencing new things would be a plus. Not daredevil extreme sports, but maybe going to an ethnic restaurant and ordering things we have never tried. Deciding maybe we will vacation in Thailand next year,lol. I am a mixture of exotic and domestic, a sensible dreamer, down to Earth, looking up at the stars.
I'm a laid back kind of person, I enjoy a wide range of music, from Brian Eno, to Tom Waits, jazz, Dead can Dance, Vietnamese street music, and lots in between. Not very fond of country or heavy metal. I do smoke though I really need to quit...would prefer someone who is not a heavy smoker, or someone also willing to quit (common goal?). I rarely drink, usually just on holidays or special occasions and would prefer the same in a partner. I have done ceremonial botanicals and such...I'm strictly an herbal type of gal. I have studied Shamanism and ancient cultures.
I am very crafty and artistic, I like to dabble in creative endeavors. I am very womanly, but was also the only girl in my high school wood shop and metal shop classes,lol. I helped build a house thru Habitat for Humanity...
A really cool description of the origin of man that comes from Central America that has always stuck in my mind, is that "Gods created man to create art to please the Gods". So basically, live your life beautifully and creatively. I have always been interested in other cultures and religions, as well as ancient civilizations. I like creepy scary stuff-but would prefer my lover not to be a creep ;)
I am definitely a geek girl, I enjoy Sci-fi, I love reading- started reading at 3, and I have a home and job in an alternate reality,lol. (Second life-not in my head) I dig MST3K, and making fun of bad B movies. Most of the best friends and loves of my life have been geeks. Intelligence is hot....Love mad scientists (nearly became one)and academic types, but am pretty adaptable, if you have a good sense of humor, your higher brain functions, and you are open minded, let's talk.
If you are waaaaay into sports (like it's your main topic of conversation when u meet someone - would miss social events and holidays to watch a game etc), hunting, guns, or your truck, we probably won't be a match. Sorry, just being honest. Not a big sports fan, love animals, don't eat meat, and I am non violent. Yeah, what am I doing in PA right?? :P Willing to relocate for the right man....
I want kids, my own, or yours, or adopted. If u don't want/like children, it's not gonna work.
(Wondering why it seems 90% of men on this site have facial hair? O,o)
If you can read this without thinking I am too weird, drop me a line :)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Wow. What would I do for a first date? I enjoy good coffee, so a chat in a coffee shop would work, lunch somewhere, or a picnic...or you could surprise me...as long as it isn't too dangerous. Probably wouldn't jump out of a plane with you as a first date.
I have a penchant for wandering about old cemeteries and haunted houses....
In spite of the number of fish in this sea, there seems to be a lack, of fish like me!
So far the people who contact me either don't seem serious about actually meeting someone, or seem to have little in common with me. Yes, I am an unusual woman, and yes I am looking for the right one for me.
I am looking for someone who is A) Brave enough to want to meet, and capable of developing a relationship, provided there is mutual interest. B) Able to carry on a good conversation with me. It's very hard to get to know someone who has a blank profile and very little to say. I may have said too much, but then again, I know who I am and what I am looking for and I hope you do too. Maybe it's me :)
If I seem like someone you would like to get to know, take a chance!
Thanks and have a great day!
