I prefer to date someone relatively close to me, say within a 30 minute drive, otherwise it just becomes difficult to get to know someone. Words that would describe me: independent, smart, trustworthy, silly, funny and loyal. I have a warped since of humor at times, farts can be funny. Drinking not so much my thing, but I do love a good sweat mead. I love my family and I'm an animal lover with 3 cats. My dogs are living with retired family members because of my busy schedule. My glass is half full most of the time and I believe in the golden rule, well most of the time, do unto others applies as well. I am happy around the house, going out, traveling, and I like trying new hobbies. Some would consider me a little bit of a sci-fi geek. Game of thrones and TWD are 2 of my favorite shows. Spiritually, I'm spiritual and towards the metaphysical side. Really, I'm pagan and practice witchcraft, but still metaphysical. I'm overweight, well lets face it I'm fat, but I concentrate on having a healthy lifestyle because of that. My right hip is a little gimpy because of an injury that never really recovered all the way, mainly I lost some flexibility. I am a constant learner and take classes and seminars, things like Reiki, Hypnotherapy, ghost hunting or some kind of nursing education. I have no problem being affectionate with the right person and believe that good relationships require affection, communication, laughter and understanding. I'm not so into men just saying, "Hi how you doing," or "Nice," I like to know that you actually read my short profile and found something in common with me. In my opinion, I'm totally average, (but wonderful) and I have a hard time "selling" myself on this type of forum. On the radio or iPod I listen to any type of rock (hard, soft, alternative), pop, or something spiritual (waves crashing on the beach, forest sounds, etc.). I also have a lot of big tattoos (8 total) and I say this because I don't look like "the tattoo type" and if you hate tattoos, they get covered sometimes, like for work and I do that because of the dress code. I like smart, easy going men. It would be best if you've had some college or at least consider yourself street smart. I do like children, so if you have them thats great I would date you. I was unable to have children in this life and I'm pushing 50, thats why I say I don't want them. POF added an ambitious category. Well, I'm as ambitious as I want to be. Thats me in a nutshell, which I have been trying to escape from for some time now.
P.S If you just say hello, I"m not going to write back, it shows to me that you have not read through my profile and please give me a sentence or two to let me know why you think we'd get along or ask questions. Also, if I see nothing in common, I'm probably not writing back. For example: "I see you like...my favorite is...I like... Something, anything besides, "Hello, Nice, How u doing." Thanks for that consideration.
