Filling out this description is akin to writing a dreaded school essay but here goes...
I am, as my username suggests, a transplant from the Rocky Mountain Region. Though I've been here for many years, I like to think I still possess the qualities of a Midwesterner - albeit with an East Coast edge. I work in the non-profit sector, mostly arts and education, and am a passionate do-gooder. My profession gives me the opportunity to interact with folks from all walks of life, which I thoroughly enjoy.
In my down time I am usually with my son or hanging out with friends. These days it's pretty tame, dinner and some drinks and then home early enough for a full night's sleep. I enjoy live music but wish CT had better venues. I lived in NYC for 8 years prior to moving to The Nutmeg State, which spoiled me. My son is 13 and keeps me laughing from morning till night. My other children are furry, four-legged creatures...one dog and one cat.
I consider myself a pretty adventurous person, provided there isn't a severe risk of bodily harm. I love to travel and get out of my comfort zone. I am highly adaptable and can get along with just about any group of people.
So, what am I seeking in a potential suitor? Well, first off I should say I'm not urgently looking for marriage but I'm not looking to casually date either. I've witnessed through other friends who do online dating just how unseemly some folks - men and women - can behave and it just doesn't interest me. If you're looking to play games or date like it's an Olympic event then I'm likely not your girl. If you like to laugh, have an adventurous streak, enjoy intelligent conversation, prefer unpretentious and authentic women then we just might get along well. :)
I like men who can adapt to any social situation - nice restaurant to dive bar, scotch to PBR, dress shoes to converse, Manhattan to the mountains...you get the idea. You MUST be an animal lover - I don't trust anyone who doesn't like animals. Good taste in music is a definite must as well! You should be an open-minded and earnest person who can occasionally tell a really good joke. Oh, and a little healthy competition never hurt anyone - I'll beat your butt at mini-golf, air hockey and big buck hunter!
