I tend to view dating as the dessert to a good meal. My life is full of all that I need and dating has been something on the side or in addition to... I would love to find the right guy who can move from the dessert plate to the main course. I am interested in finding a friend & companion, someone that is looking to have fun and enjoys life. I've mastered the ‘me thing’ and would love to check out the world as a part of a couple.
I am pretty independent. I have never married and raised my son by myself. I am warm and easy going and feel a connection to nature. I am from the Midwest and am proud of my Midwestern values. It is a great place to be from, but way to cold in the winter for me! ; D I have always had pets in my home and feel they truly make a house a home. I also volunteer for an area animal rescue program and manage the surgery recovery area for quarterly feral cat spay/neuter clinics.
As a teacher, I love what I do and spend a lot of personal time focused on my work. This is the nature of being a teacher; it is not just what we do, it is who we are. It's my career, my hobby, my life.
It's best if you live in the East Bay. It would make it a lot easier to find the time to get to know each other. I would love to find a hiking partner; nothing too strenuous, but for day trips here in the Bay Area or Tahoe's Desolation Wilderness. Even a walk around the reservoir or playing tourist in The City can be a nice hike too ; D I also enjoy backyard barbeques, dinner and a movie, or a drive to the coast.
My photos are recent but my hair is much longer now.
This is just a little bit about me. If you are interested in knowing more, I'm here - strike up a conversation with me and let's see where it goes.
