Do you consider yourself adventurous? The kind of girl who might pack her stuff and move to a distant land for no reason, or learn swordfighting, climb volcanoes or go out of your way to walk along the breezy coastline under the moon on a warm summer night, outside of the city just to look at vibrant constellations? You don't necessarily have to have DONE them. Life and dreams are complex. The spirit is what's important.
I'm soon to be 28. I see a lot of profiles, particularly on OKC, and think to myself that I haven't had nearly as much adventure as many women there. That I do too much routine, and time winds away without doing as much as I've wanted in life. But really, I guess I HAVE done a lot. I've moved to a different place every couple years, Massachusetts, Connecticut, now Washington. Had different jobs, mental health, private naval security, now I drive transit busses and I'm thinking of getting into the railroad, learning to fly, and how I might pursue a master's degree in astronomy. I've traveled around the country, hiked mountains, hopped freight trains. I collect handguns. I put great energy into passions. I keep to myself, and am very much introspective and mostly introverted. I'm easygoing, but I won't be pushed around. I have experienced that butterfly feeling of being in love, a couple times. Next time I want it to be permanent.
I've done these things, but without someone to love beside you, it's sort of like talking to yourself... A muted world, with less color, a sadder beauty. I don't want to keep going without a woman for to be my other half. Who I admire and have no choice but to respect, and vice versa. Who sees the world in the same way. Who wants to live dreams with me and finds simple pleasures in life. Here's what I need from you:
*Have your head together, not flaky and unreliable. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT.
*What does it take to spark that love? I wish I knew, but I've been in love in the past. I think she would be an artistic, colorful, independent type. Think Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. I just don't know, so no worries if you aren't. Write anyway.
*Contribute, and expand, on our conversation until we meet.
Not much else. I have a thing for short hair, colored hair, short and petite types. Creative (hippie-style) outfits. But not necessary. Simply write me a message. How and what you write will pretty much tell me who you are and if we want to push forward. We'll know it when we meet; everything will flow together, so easily it's scary. Great things can come from the internet, if we only try.
I really would rather have a first date as quickly as comfortably possible after making written contact. I don't answer/write to people who have short or nonexistent profiles, so if we're talking then I already have a high interest.
What I tend to do is this: A long walk somewhere for icebreaking. The ocean, an easy hiking trail, off a short pier. This should be enough time to see if the person is right. After that, we can do anything, typically dinner if we're still interested, as long as everything I ask you isn't "I don't know." (That was long date, for sure)
