Hi there, here's the applicable info in no particular order-
Me: Fun, kind, intelligent open minded full time student, part time worker, & mama who has a soft spot for men who smell good & who have full beards or "mutton chops" (though you're all plenty handsome without too). In my spare time I like to explore new places & learn new things.
I adore campfires, love good conversation. I'm a big reader, though some fiction is great (Neil Gaiman, Sharyn McCrumb) I mostly favor non-fiction (The Omnivores' Dilemma; Animal, Vegetable, Miracle; Grave Matters; Fast Food Nation; This Republic of Suffering; Generation Rx; Birth as an American rite of passage; Round-trip to deadsville; various history, cultural anthropology, and well, I could keep going but you get the point).
I haven't had a television for most of my life, but I'm game for an occasional tv show & like an occasional trip to the local cinema. I believe laughing together is an invaluable part of life I would never want to do without. I like card & board games, but I'm most definitely not a "gamer".
I would love to find an eventual work-out partner, companion, etc. Looking for a man who also wants to go on real dates as apposed to always "hanging out" (we're not 12 years old, right?).
You: A polite, honest, happy, healthy, grown-up with well thought out opinions (which may be strong ones, but are based on accurate information whenever applicable) to share & debate, looking for the same. You are not glued to any electronic device, realizing they serve a purpose, but taking over our lives & relationships isn't it. You have a healthy libido but getting to know someone well happens first.
Meeting in person as a first step to anything else is important if we are close enough to do so. Texting has it's place, but really getting to know someone is not it. I have no preference for someone with or without kids.
Flakiness, "hook ups", & illegal drugs however, are not ever going to be part of my life (an unusual stance on all three in Humboldt, I realize).
Kindness, ambition, & intelligence are the three traits in a man which I find irresistibly attractive, and which I can match ;)
If any of this sounds like something you're interested in, do say hello :) Happy fishing!
Meet for coffee, a walk or something else relatively simple, just get to know if we're a good match for a real first date.
