I have heard it said that I'm not the most adventurous person. I like to take my time and investigate opportunities before I dive in. But once I do take the plunge, I usually am going feet first!! Recently took my first ATV ride through the Sand Dunes in Oregon. At first I was very tentative, but at the end of the hour, I was blasting over hills, chugging full tilt down the dunes and running around trails with a HUGE grin on my face!
I would hope to meet someone similar to myself: thoughtful, but willing to try almost anything new. Patience is important as well as a sense of humor. I love to laugh and have fun, but with thoughtfulness. Sensitivity toward others, but with an ability to laugh at yourself.
I love hockey - Go Sharks! - and enjoy baseball - Go A's - but am not a hard core sports nut (okay, with the exception of hockey). I usually manage at least one Sharks' game a season and have been to one A's game in the last couple of years also.
I am passionate about my work, although I do love to complain about it also. Working in the Mental Health field with children has given me insights into some really bad places and what people are capable of doing to each other. I feel really responsible for the fact that I am a public servant and do serve the needs of my community.
Looking forward to meeting new people and maybe one special person.
