Looking for a gentleman. I am very much into people being present and not on their phone during a date or activities. I like outdoor activities even if it is just walking around town. Chemistry, cooking together, hanging out watching movies all fun. Working out, riding bikes, swimming and walking on the beach are all good too.
I'm 5'4 145lbs curvy
I am fun and easy going.
I believe in being happy.
Sarcastic and dry wit.
I appreciate simplicity.
I always work on being present in this moment.
I practice self-compassion.
I sing really really loud in my kitchen to any music while doing the dishes.
I really care about people especially kids and homeless kids.
I would do anything for my friends.
I am a musician and classically trained in clarinet, opera (caro mio ben), percussion, some guitar and piano.
I have been a systems analyst/programmer/project manager for 20 years.
I am a court reporter.
I know some polynesian dancing.
I spend my day living a healthy life style...usually.
I love the outdoors.
I've been doing pretty awesome on a new physical workout routine.
I am more of a dive bar/live music person (coach house, steamers, renaissance cafe).
I prefer to read real books and newspapers not books online, and I sometimes still buy CDs.
I am eclectic, have moods of good fun and at times deep pensive thought (I definitely think too much: Eckart Tolle, Tara Brach, Adyashanti, Maryann Williamson, Maya Angelou, Bashar (It's a sickness); haha. and Winston Churchill). I am always reading stuff.
I am loyal and committed to the people I love.
Iv'e got bits and pieces like everyone else:
I like anything zombie.
I probably am the only girl who hates shopping. Online is the way to go.
I mentally cuss when I am happy, sad, mad, depressed; and sometimes I think I am saying it out loud; but I know when it is not appropriate.
I call people dude...girls, guys, kids, my dog, strangers, friends.
Can't watch the news that stuff will bother me for weeks.
Some things make me ghetto mad...
I got skills.
I like mundane stuff like bowling. I am good for two throws/strikes then all gutter balls.
I like cooking for people.
I make good enchiladas and some other requested signature dishes by my kids.
I am pretty spontaneous and will try something new just doing a drive by...
Other guilty pleasures would be laser tag and squirt guns.
I like carving pumpkins at halloween.
I like to celebrate holidays and life.
I am ambitious and competitive.
My kids and I do sushi a lot...movies....dinner at home, they are the most important part of my life. They are adults and have their own lives and a great dad.
I like a partner who is smart and/or talented that I respect and learn from who has energy for life; yet, who is not overbearing with superfluous knowledge.
I am not extra left-brain smart, I have to work a lot harder than everyone else to achieve the same result ;). I am extra right-brain smart or is it centrally inspired not sure, up around the corner and past grandma's house. Whatever work it and make it happen. It's never the extra without trying talented that make it on that alone, it is the people who don't give up and work really hard.
I have found a good match is someone where I am weak, he is strong and where he is weak; I am strong. Balance. Yin-Yang.
I am more passive, and I don't like conflict.
I like alpha males.
I believe in chemistry, loyalty and being open to the world around me. I am not likely to be judgmental or tell you what to do. I appreciate wisdom before emotion.
I think how people treat other people is more important than how much money you make, where you live or what kind of car you drive.
I am looking for a relationship
CAVEAT: If you live with your parents, don't work, or barely work or on unemployment, are using old pictures and are unambitious and lazy; I am not interested. If you are so attached to your phone that you are texting and using it during a date, you are not for me. You are not for me if you keep in touch with ex girlfriends, ruminate over their pictures, and lament on that love lost; and if we are out and you have a wandering eye, I'll go ahead and wander off with a more interested bloke. Probably, not going to respond to the guy with pictures with other women, "friends" or say a pic of you with a group of Vegas dancing girls or cheerleaders; you're fooling no one, you are not dating them nor are they your friends and don't act like that's the type of girl you can get. Messaging me "Hello sexy" tells me your here for a hookup so I won't respond. No heavy alcohol or substance abusers. Those living in La La land or don't know about things about the world around them be it history, transcendental meditation, time travel, aliens, zombies, whatever just be interesting or it would be too mundane for me.
I want an equal partner. Some of you need to reexamine your own appearance and what you have to offer.
