...but let it be part of who you will become.
I'm a by the book kind of person, really good at following instructions. I don't have a creative bone in my body. I draw bad stick people! So this is me following instructions:
1. My hobbies: I love boating. If it floats, I'm loving it. I belong to a few canoe racing clubs. We race whitewater in the spring and flat water in the summer. I have 2 canoes, one for each season. Paddling is my favorite workout. It's much more fun to be outside paddling on a warm day than in a gym running on a treadmill. I've spent a few weeks every summer for my entire life camping on Sebago Lake in Maine. It's been really hard for me the last 4 summers to sit on the beach without a motor boat anymore since I had to give up mine in the divorce. My favorite days are spent out in the boat with family and a picnic lunch and coming back at sunset for dinner.
In the winter I go skiing. I was lucky enough to chaperone the ski club when my kids were in high school. That was great fun. I have 3 kids that are all grown now (30, 21 & 19). My youngest splits her time between my house and her dad's. Since the kids are all grown now they are for the most part not available to go with me anymore. I would love to find someone to ski with.
I'm also looking for someone that lives within a 50 mile radius of Sturbridge. That does cover quite a bit.
2. My goals are to finally travel to the places I've always wanted to see. I want to find someone that is willing and able to enjoy new and exciting places with me. Yes, that means the usual romantic places like Paris (told you I'm not very original) and London (would love to see the Olympics next summer), but also Sweden. Day trips and romantic weekend getaways are great too.
3. What makes me unique? I get along with everyone. I could find the silver lining to just about any situation. I've learned that the hard way, it keeps me sane. I am most definitely not one of those drama queens that need to be in the limelight all the time. I have a great job with great benefits; own my own house and car; hope to buy my own boat or camper next year and I'm financially independent. Going out to eat, romantic walks on the beach, camp fires, lazy Sunday mornings, these are all great things that we all love doing. But it's not what you're doing that counts as much as who you're doing it with. If you're with the right person, everything you do together is so much better, because you're with that one person that makes your world all shiny and new again.
4. I like a lot of different types of music. I'm not too fond of country or heavy metal and rap is definitely out. Concerts are great. The last one I went to was The Police 4 years ago. Time to see someone else. U2 is high on my list of concerts I must see!
So how did I do? I followed the magic recipe, now let's see what happens. Thanks for reading my profile and good luck!
