I'm a head in the clouds, down to earth, come frome the country, live in the city kind of girl. A bit of a kid at heart, I like to get out and have fun, but can stay in and relax just as well. I love music, singing, goofing around, and I enjoy trying new places, food, and other things. My friends say I have two modes: Chill and Go. I'm either relaxing and having fun, or doing 3 things at the same time. I love great conversations about any and all things. I consider myself a "hopeful" romantic and am a very physical person - snuggling, holding hands, back rubs, passionate kisses, and the occasional butt squeeze. I'm usually in a good mood and joking around unless I'm really busy with something, then I get focused and quiet. I have a playful, sarcastic, sense of humor but am pretty straightforward and honest about my feelings. I'm a DIY kind of woman - working on my car, plumbing, fixing appliances, building things, and yard work. I'm not a very political person but am a strong advocate for equal rights, environmental issues, and animals rights. I'm a doer and giver, not a lazy taker, and try to surround myself with other compassionate, fun loving people.
I'm looking for someone who understands that in any relationship, respect, trust, and honesty are most important. Friendship is the basis on which I begin things and I like to spend a fair amount of time together, have fun, and enjoy little adventures. I have a 13yr old son who is my heart walking around in this world. I can only hope to meet someone who can not only be my best friend, but a good role model for him, since he needs to learn respect, honesty, and integrity from the people in his life.
I'm attracted to fun loving, compassionate, humorous, intelligent men who say what they mean, do what they promise, aren't ignorant to the the world around them, who love kids (or at least mine...lol), and are somewhat old fashioned in their values. Mostly, I'm looking for someone who is mature enough to be past all the BS and games that we have all played, and knows that relationships require openness, work, and commitment. I would really like to find someone who is open to developing a strong intimate connection with physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Peace and Love ~ Kristin
P.S. I read an interesting article about how we date now and it's worth a read:
A long walk on the beach, candlelit dinner or dancing in the moonlight...gag. I would much rather enjoy something realistic and simple like enjoying a restaurant, pub, or live music in some small hole in the wall place that is new to us both. No home-court advantages for anyone ;-)~
