Friends and family are very important to me. Usually I am hosting parties for my friends or my kids friends, or planning an outing. I need to be outdoors in the fresh air, I camp, hike, and frequently go to the beach. (Two of my kids are learning to surf).
Recently I took knitting lessons, and I purchased a violin. I am also looking to start backpacking trips.I love being active and trying new things, but I also appreciate quiet moments and a good book.
My taste in music is varied. I grew up on Bluegrass and Opera, played classical, sang rock and roll, I went through a punk/hard music phase. I really enjoy seeing live music and love to dance.
I am very extroverted and comfortable in most situations. My friends would say I am easygoing, caring, truthful.
My optimal first date would be on the beach or in another outdoor environment. We could walk and talk, maybe get a drink or bite, and have time to get to know one another while listening to the waves roll along the shore or the birds chirping in the tree.
