Someone important said " people go about online dating all wrong, be specific, you are only looking for ONE" I took this to heart because it's true for me.
So, if this profile seems long winded to you.... It is.... And you dont have to read it :)
I think relationships evolve over time and need room to grow. If it is forced you can snuff out its chances. For that reason I have my relationship needs as "dating, nothing serious" because, you gotta start somewhere, and not everyone is meant to be in a relationship with me.... But that shouldn't mean we have to be all alone all the time either right? I am open and hoping to meet someone that will grow into a relationship, but you will get no pressure from me, and if I get pressure from you... I will run! ;)
I am more interested in how we connect than your hobbies, music tastes, job, or income. If we aren't laughing,..pretty early on...there probably isn't much chemistry. I definitely want to know all the details, I care about your upbringing and your job and your kids, absolutely.... But first we must have a connection. I want to let what wants to happen, happen, without trying to force it.
Here's to hoping.
I'm pretty honest, (you probably noticed ) it's not for everyone. I am also, sweet and kind and giving and respectful.
I work on myself and take care of myself physically, emotionally and spiritually
I cuss, when I'm mad or trying to make a point.
I like to get dirty (in the actual dirt, mind out of the gutter, geez)
I am sincere, and real, but still feminine and like to be treated like a girl sometimes.
Don't expect me to do what you tell me to all the time, but I will listen to you, and HEAR you.
I love animals, and volunteer my time trying to help them
I like witty banter, when I'm comfortable, and can be pretty sarcastic, but sometimes I worry about offending people so I hold back. Don't misunderstand, I know how to behave.
I truly need an intimate connection, but I like manly more rugged men, so it's proved a tough balance to find.
When I am interested in someone on here, and they don't tell me what they are looking for, I feel it's too risky to put myself out there. I have no possible way of knowing if I am "your type" unless you tell me, so this next section is about you... It's by no means a checklist of must haves.... It's just who I see myself being attracted to.
You don't NEED a woman to make you happy
You can plan a date
I tend to like people with strong personalities who can say what they mean.
I have friends and hobbies of my own and I don't always expect you to be available, But I do hope you will WANT to carve out time to spend together.
You've been told you are a good kisser
it's important you are self sufficient, pay your bills and keep your word.
It would be great if you have kids and If you do, spend alot of time with them.
Hopefully you like happy hour, parks, festivals concerts on the lawn, walking through the farmers market, getting outside and animals.
You are a natural leader, without being arrogant.
You thrive on a deep conversation about... Whatever.
You are cool because you are so comfortable in your own skin.
Your kinda sexy too and not afraid to live your life and be who you are.
You recognize a good woman when you see one ;)
Also, and lastly (I promise) the "body type" drop down list frustrates me because its subjective. I think I'm average (thick, maybe, I'm not altogether sure). I'm curvy, and have turned 42, I work out, regularly, and I take care of myself... I resent it a little when I read things like "I work hard in the gym, you should like to take care of yourself" as if having a normal body means I don't work hard, or take care of myself, that's ridiculous. If we meet, you will recognize me, no problem... My pictures are recent.
The rest of my likes are listed above, hopefully we have a few in common... And a few we don't, so we can share. Maybe I'm a good match for you. Reach out if you think so! I will respond either way, because I have manners :)
