*Please be kind enough to not waste my time or yours with an email to me that only says "Hi", "Hello" yada yada. Pretty sure I give you enough to come up with something to trigger a response.
Well, thanks for dropping by!
Who I am: someone who knows her weaknesses as well as her strengths, a realist more than a romantic. Someone who has shied away from dating, more than I have pursued it. Sweet but also very sarcastic....I can take it, but you better believe I can dish it!! A natural caregiver. I think I'm funny, and I'm not afraid to laugh at myself...have learned over the years doesn't do any good to take yourself too seriously. That being said, I do have high standards, but not unrealistic. Strong convictions, but can definitely compromise. Probably 60/40 tomgirl/girly-girl. I'm direct, but not rude. Not the girl that NEEDS someone, but wants someone to experience the fun things with!. Usually I'm "just one of the guys" and something falls into play. Never have gone from one relationship to the next. Settling down and getting married has never been a priority of mine.But doesn't mean I don't want that for my future.. Not opposed to dating someone with kids, unless you have baby momma drama :) Looking for someone who is genuine and down to earth. Someone who understands the value of the little things in life. Not hung up on material things or "keeping up with the Jones'". Interested in knowing who you ARE, not about what you HAVE. Please don't confuse this with it being ok if you are unemployed and clueless about what you want to do with your life. I completely understand if you are however re-evaluating and getting on track. I've done the same...and I think it's about what you do and not what you get paid, that's important. Having a passion for what you do.
Speaking of that passion...I am going through a career change. Used to work in accounting which I discovered that I have WAY too much personality to sit behind a desk and waste it. I also love to help people and that is where my heart is...so I'm working on an OT degreed. I work a few other jobs to get the bills paid.
I love adventure, whether it be exploring a new town, state park, etc. I visited the OBX 3 1/2 yrs ago for 2 days and moved the 1100 mi 3 months later without knowing anyone. Best thing I ever did for myself. I believe you aren't guaranteed tomorrow so you have to take chances today!
You should get a pretty good idea. Witty repartee is a definite turn on! Any other ?? Ask, I'm pretty open...but don't ask a ? unless you really want an honest answer! If you are higher maintenance than me...save your time...keep on looking.
Loves:getting lost in the woods, the mountains, the beach, flip flops, jeans, the smell of rain, baseball, working in the garage with my dad, hiking/camping/fishing, dancing, baseball caps, the wind in my hair, lazy Sundays, mashed potatoes, the theater (no not the ones for movies, although I do like those too), museums..., concerts, live music, country music and 90's alternative are faves. 4 wheeling, trout fishing, Monday night football. Guys guy, uniforms ha, muscle cars, scruff.
*My thoughts on the guys who take half naked pics of themselves and wanna say "just looking"....shouldn't you just say..."just advertising" ?? Just my take on that haha...these would be the bathroom pics or the "seductive" ones from your phone...the beach pics I rather enjoy. Yeah...I'm picky like that. Save yourself the trouble and do not ask me to send you any suggestive pics...some things have to be earned and are better in person!
If you made it through this book...Kudos to you!! Earned some points haha!!
Love first dates where either neither of us has done the activity before, OR you can teach me something. You can tell a lot by the way a person teaches or leads. Also love amusement parks for a first date! I do realize we live on a beach but please don't pick something where we are half naked for a first date :/. Call me a lil old fashioned that way...some things are a lil worth waiting for!
Honestly, I'm not hard to please...just please have manners!
