...My ideal partner will be an intelligent, fun-loving, affectionate, passionate lady who appreciates the benefits of a generally healthy lifestyle, but doesn't mind a little "merrymaking" as well. (been a while since ya seen that word, huh?). She takes care of her body, and likes to use it (through working out, sports, hiking, etc). She should be someone who carries herself with confidence, who's good at some light-hearted verbal jousting at times, and has (or at least truly appreciates!) a sharp, edgy, screwball sense of humor (good natured sarcasm? Yay!!). She knows what, and what not, to take seriously—and is intuitive enough to tell when I am and when I’m not.
I'm a (usually) healthy eater and workout-enthusiast who is content lifting a****ail as well (not quite as frequently, but it helps with my theme here); I'm terse with people harping on the problems and not the solutions (drives me freakin' nuts, actually), though I've been described as having uncanny patience. I'm always looking for the funny and ironic angle, but appear quite serious much of the time (don’t be fooled). I may be a cynic at any given moment--however, I'm optimistic that it'll all work out.
I like short walks on the beach...
I work as a teacher of high school kids with special needs at a nearby high school (autism, Down Syndrome, other intellectual and physical disabilities). It's exhausting, exhilirating, frustrating, rewarding work. LOVE the kids...and am privileged to serve them, as well as their families.
To be somewhat serious, I’m looking for solid companionship--maybe or maybe not leading to forever, but where we will do lotsa stuff together, laugh a lot together...basically someone who has a good enough arm to throw grapes at me on the beach (I catch 'em in my mouth) from 30 feet away...(until recently I had 50 in there, but I think that was scaring people away. Thirty'll do just fine at this point...you can do it!).
...and long walks are fine, too. : )
Some other added thoughts:
* you might wanna ask me to dance to "Pump It Up".......or you might not. Depends on your sense of humor......
* My pictures STILL accurately represent me (head2toe!) in that I don't think you'll run screaming upon our meeting.....and I hate to add this at the risk of being considered superficial, but if you don't include accurate representations of yourself head2toe as well, I will probably hesitate...as it does matter......to the majority of both guys and ladies.
* If height's an issue, no problem. I can put on heels too. They make me feel sooooooo sexxxxyyyyy...
(.....OR....I can just break out the ol' Herman Munster boots.)
* Not big on the "Hey There" approach when it comes to initial communication here. Please be a little more descriptive as to why you're interested. I'm not fishing for compliments, but I like people who can communicate with specific language. Just sayin'....
Thanks for your time. If you actually read all of this...Bravo!! ; )
Shopping for my heels....? ; )
But seriously...let's be able to hear each other!
