Never save something for a special occasion....... because everyday IS a special occasion. : )
Hmmm, this is the part that most people have a hard time with..... not I !
Most people have a difficult time writing about themselves. I really cant understand why...because who should know you, better than YOU?! so here goes!
Firstly, and most importantly,I am the proud Mum of two wonderful boys.
I am a down to earth, honest person. I am busy, by choice...and generally like it that way. I see my cup as being half full....never half empty.
I enjoy life...without feeling the need to spend most of it intoxicated. I enjoy people and socializing..and truly believe that everyone has a story that is worth listening to.
I keep active in many ways: I am at the gym approx 5-7 times a week. I teach Zumba classes, and enjoy weight training, I do Pilates , I belly dance, I walk alot, I love to swim,...
I also do alot of volunteering work....I'm no Mother Theresa, but I do think that giving back to your community is an important thing to do. I do it most weekends in the summer, and enjoy it immensly.
I may be described as one of those 'romantic' types...I do truly believe that 'the man' for me is out there, and our lives just havent crossed yet...but they will, and when they do it will be a lucky day for both of us!
I want to find someone to spend quality time with..someone to sit with on rainy days, enjoying the comfortable silence, reading funny or interesting parts of our books out loud to each other. Someone that would like to discover where some of those interesting looking dirt roads end up...the ones we always drive by and wonder. Someone that knows how to kick back and relax as well as knows that spontaneity is indeed a very good thing.
Someone that knows that to give is every bit as good as to recieve. Someone to go beach combing with, Someone I can share the many wonders of my life with and vice versa. Someone that is comfortable with themselves, and admits their flaws as well as their strengths.
I like and enjoy challenges.....and find I often place myself in situations that are 'outside' of my comfort zone.
If we're not challenging ourselves, and learning new things, we're not growing. And I truly believe we continue growing and bettering ourselves till the day we die.
If you're that someone.....well, you're on this web-site, so I guess you know what to do!
I look forward ro hearing from you!
A smile is worth so very much...it can lift someones spirits from the deepest depths, and make them feel so much better, it is universal and crosses the barriers of language. It is quiet, and subtle, but yet so powerful. It is something that everyone posseses, but not everyone uses theirs as much as they should. It is easy to use....it is free. : )
Are you a Tigger or an Eeyore...? I once read that everyone falls into these two categories...think about it, which one are you ? ( it's not a bad thing to be either one....just a fact.)
I have an analogy to share: I truly think our lives are like books, with many chapters in them. Some of the chapters are funny, sad, dramatic, exciting, and tedious. Some chapters end before we are ready for them to end, and we mourn them a little afterwards. Others dont end soon enough! BUT without all of the chapters, the book wouldnt be the same, it wouldnt make sense. So rejoice and enoy ALL of the chapters in your book....they all help to make you the person you are....and you CAN change how some of the chapters begin or end..... does that make sense? It does to me.
Do you have a 'bucket list'....? things you havent done, places you havent seen , that you'd like to ?
I have an enormous list of places I'd like to travel to.... plus a few things i'd like to do....a free fall, a parachute jump....stuff like that. What's yours ?
As much as I love to go out dancing, I dont consider myself a 'party animal'.....I outgrew that years ago. I dont want to date someone that needs to get a buzz on to go out or to dance. Alcohol is something I can, and often do live without. I dont want to date someone that uses it as a crutch, or who drinks on a daily basis.
Oh..... BTW, I am NOT dyslexic....If there are typos in messages to you, it's because I am the original 2 finger typist, and rarely check to see what I have typed before i click send....yes I know, a bad habit.
For only using 2 fingers I'm getting quite speedy now!!
O.K....I have to add a couple of things here. I am not attracted to men that are obese, or over weight. No apologies ...it's just what it is. We are all different for a reason and we all have different likes and dis-likes. I also prefer to date men my height or taller. I enjoy wearing heels and in my experience most men feel a little weirded out by a woman more than an inch or so taller then himself.
Also, I am not on here for a one night stand.....they are easy to find, and I'm just not interested...I outgrew them YEARS ago. So, if all you're looking for is a one night stand, or someone to do cyber stuff with.....I am most certainly not your gal....and I have no qualms about blocking anyone if the need is there!
I also have no interest in dating someone that smokes ( even 'just socially') or anyone that feels the need to use drugs. I respect and take care of my body, and I'd like to date someone that has the same mind set. We only have one body, and need to take care of it ! I plan on mine lasting for a LONG time ! : )
There are many people on here that will never read to the end of a profile that is this long, there are others that think my profile is already too long.....to them I say " Oh well, too bad, suck it up! or dont read it!"
But, I feel the need to add a couple of things...
Firstly, I am a Gemini....a very typical true Gemini. I dont let horoscopes run my life,and I dont read them on a daily basis. However looking back on my past relationships I realize that there IS something in it. I am not good with Pisces or Capricorns...and that is based on a few relationships with both signs. No offense to any Pisces or capricorns that have read this far on my profile. I LOVE Sagitarious and Aquarians personalities. I am very out going....so if you are a quiet 'stay at home' kind of Cancerian, you should know I will never be happy as a stay at home kind of gal. So....check what your profile says about your horoscope sign, as it is amazing how many people have the wrong one on their profile!!
Also, please be HONEST. I lie about only ONE thing in my profile, and that is the exact location that I live. I do this for obvious safety reasons.....and I learned that the hard way. I dont lie about ANYTHING else. My weight, body type, height, personality....it's all 100% me. Please respect me enough & be honest
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Almost anything....except watching a movie. It will involve alot of talking.... and alot of laughing...and it will almost certainly last a couple of hours at least.
Time for a pop quiz!
Here are a few quotes that I particularly enjoy......
Do you know who these 'somewhat famous' quotes belong to?
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
(Dont forget, the best and most imprtant thing you can wear everyday,is your smile ) : )
