About me: I'm an RN, have owned my own home for just over 4yrs now, good credit, no kids, healthy, smart, fun-loving, positive, very clean, open minded, liberal, adventurous, confident, great sense of humor and brilliant personality :) This already feels like I'm putting myself on Craigslist. I believe in being honest and doing the right thing. I just moved back home to the KC area about a month and a half ago. I spent the last two years being a traveling nurse, mainly in California and will miss the ocean for the rest of my life.
The weirdest thing about me is that I'm vegan. Why? Because it is the right thing to do. It's the right thing for my health, the environment, and the animals. Does that make me an animal lover? Not necessarily. I'm not exactly a baby person but I don't eat them either. While it would be awesome to find someone that is also vegan it is not a requirement as long as you respect my decision, are open minded to trying vegan dishes, don't send me pics of meat constantly, and don't say things to me like "I bet I'll have you cooking me steak in no time". False. I won't cry if you order steak at dinner but I won't cook it or eat it. I know that makes picking a place for dinner seem difficult but you'd be surprised how many places I can eat...Chipotle being the best. I have learned to compromise when eating out with my non-vegan friends(basically all of my friends) and will eat somewhere as long as I can order something at least vegetarian. I try not to be obnoxious like most vegans that talk about it constantly, have to announce it everywhere they go, and only wear shirts that say "Kale" on them. I didn't become vegan so I would have an identity, I already had one. Oh, and I also shower regularly, wash my hair and wear makeup...not a dirty hippie.
I'm pretty big on health and fitness and need someone that is also within reason. For example I work out regularly and don't eat fried or processed foods however if I'm hungry enough I will eat after 7 and I hit up Sheridan's a few times a year. I like outdoor activities like hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking...though these get a little limited in KS. I love to travel and would love to meet cool ppl to travel with. I've had my passport over four years and have yet to use it because I can never get any of my friends to actually save up the money. I would really love to go to Rome this year! . I've been pretty consumed with fixing my house back up after the condition the renters left it in and I've decided to redecorate the whole thing so besides working out that would probably be my main hobby right now...it counts as a hobby, right? I'm a pretty normal person, I like cooking, movies, shopping, and most things active. I still know how to have a good time when I step out but I don't do it as often these days. I'd say I go out about every three weeks on average. I guess I've just outgrown the club scene and have better things to do than spend my time miserable and hungover. Not to mention once you've partied a few times in Hollywood and Vegas the KC club scene seems leaves a little to be desired.
Why I'm on here....oh, who knows. I guess a little out of boredom and because my father keeps asking if I think I'll ever get married "no pressure". I would love to meet that person I can build a life with but I don't want it badly enough to compromise my standards. I have worked hard to make a decent life for myself and am looking for someone that can add to it. I don't ask for anything that I'm not willing and able to give. I'm a firm believer in the saying "Don't be a nickel looking for a dime" and I'm not looking to short change myself.... We all know that free dating sites are a joke, especially this one, and the probability of meeting good quality people on here is pretty slim but unless Mr. Right is at the gym or hanging out at Home Depot I'm not going to run into him in person any time soon. I have absolutely no expectations from this site. If I meet some new friends, great. If I meet someone I connect with well enough to date, even better. I'm certainly not on here desperately looking for someone to call my boyfriend. Relationships are hard and time consuming and unless there's long term potential with someone I don't see the point in wasting either of our time or energy. I'll leave out the obligatory "no games, no drama, no booty" section. I'm assuming no one actually puts that they're on here looking for those things and if you think I'm on here because I can't get laid or need a million men to message me telling me that I'm sexy then either you're blind or not smart enough to have read this far anyways.
The kind of guy I'm looking for...Someone tall and athletic, healthy, financially stable with a good career, confident, hard working, HONEST, chivalrous, intelligent with a good sense of humor, kind hearted, and the ability and desire to use correct spelling. In addition to all that in order for me to settle down I need someone I can have real chemistry with. Life is way too short to spend with someone you aren't madly in love with at least most of the time. ... So if this sounds like you and you can spell "cool" without a "K", hit me up.
