I been looking through a few profiles and decided to do some major changes on mine. Well, this a second change to my profile
I had a "conversation" with a fellow "fisher" and I made the comment that I am happy in my life. So he asked me "why am I looking for someone if I am happy"? I used this line with people at work, friends and some of my girlfriends. I am happy with my life, I am pretty successful, own my house/home, live in a nice neighborhood. Yes, I get lonely but not crying every night. Yes, it would be nice to be with someone that wants me not NEED's me. Yes need in a good way but not to chase after him 24/7. I want my mate to feel comfortable being with me and able to do things on his own also. And the same here.
I came to some painful conclusion, many men have told me that they are looking for a strong independent women. But in reality I think they are not. I been told that I was too independent for them or they got upset that I didn't call them to help me with something. I told them way can't you be just be proud of me and look at what I am trying to accomplish? Laugh when I laugh at myself and hold me when I cry because I saw a dead puppy on the side of the road. I don't know. I left the rest of my pervious profile below. Good luck and I hope I made you smile.
First off, I am a kind and caring person. I enjoy cooking, working out, movies, books, traveling and music. Some of the profiles that I have read mention that people need to let go of the past. But seeing something on the news made me rethink this. Yes, been through a tear down, full throttle and painful divorce. But I came to the conclusion that it shows I am capable of deep, caring feelings and not afraid to begin and start again.
So on that note, I am open to new things. I work full time and I am sorry I can not just drop what I am doing to rush off to see you. I need to work to pay my mortgage. (I own my house) And no, I do not need you to help me with the yard or some small repairs on the house. I am a contractor's daughter and I have an awesome handyman that lives down the street. And yes, I know him and his family well. And only use him or his kids when I can't reach something or I have to go to work, so the work/problem around the house can get done. I do my own yard work. I enjoy it and I take great pride of my yard and how nice it looks. I own two dogs. A mastiff and border collier. I do alot of hiking and activities with them. Hiking, walks and fund raisers.
I attend book clubs, because I like to read and I also attend cooking classes at Central Market, well because I like to cook.
I am well educated and believe in doing things that I say. Like volunteering for the SA Food Bank and the SAPD as a FACT volunteer and other community projects. I am short and have dark and light colored hair.
I enjoy watching the 'princess bride" and do not get upset when you laugh at me or toss a sock at me.
I am financially secure. And enjoy taking about financial things (My Mom is a stock broker)
I am not into long drawn out emails and phone calls. I feel like we can click,spark or what ever on the first meeting then it might be a go. No, we do not have to do dinner, coffee would be great or walk around at the park. I live close to the Quarry so there are several parks around me. If things don't work out we can leave as friends and wish each other well.
I am not into alot of texting or sexting. If you want to play games, you should find someone else. I am NOT into playing games. I can be spontaneous but I do like to be able to plan, I find that an event can be more enjoyable if planned.
For the most part I am debt free. Just spending some time doing home improvemnts and planting. So I guess that adds some debt but not much. I think most guys do not want a women with a whole lot of debt. I was talking to a friend about going to bars. Well, I do like going to a sports bar to catch a game. Besides makes it easier to have a drink made and cheer on the team.
To add on to my profile. I am currently in nursing school. I guess I got some of my goals done. Next my traveling goals.....
On another note. I did meet a fellow fisher who mentioned that I was too busy for him and mentioned as soon as I get a career for me to call him. After I laughed in his face and mentioned it to all my friends and family about this, well it caused a family laugh a-thon and it hasn't stopped. I made some new goals. Plan on going to nurse practicer school. Yeah, I fuss I don't have a career, but since I am retired military, all my schooling is paid for. I guess for some life is rough.......
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
To a nice coffee shop or La Madeleine for some dessert and some good conversation or a walk.
