I promise not to babble on and on and say the SAME thing everyone else says. Here's the deal: I'm new to the area (travel nurse), looking to make new friends..hopefully more. I absolutely INSIST on laughing (life is too short not to). I have lived a lot of life in 35 years. I've failed at some things and have succeeded at others. I've experienced more loss than a person should at my age. I've also experienced great joy: motherhood is at the top. I have buried my dog. I have laughed until I cried. I am an adrenaline junkie. I LOVE cooking and trying new restaurants (try to keep it mostly healthy, but c'mon...ya gotta cheat sometimes). I love sports. I have all my teeth. I know the difference between your and you're, and there, their and they're. I'm witty and sarcastic, but know when to turn it off. I love the elderly - they are the funniest, coolest people...ever. If we hang out for any significant amount of time, I WILL attempt a practical joke on you. I could people watch for a living. I'm a registered mullet hunter on www.mulletjunkie.com. No matter what diet I'm on, I will not give up beer or cheese. I'm not interested in a "textationship". If we hit it off on here, I actually want to meet up in person. Crazy, I know.
You: are as cool as the other side of the pillow. You like kids and dogs. You are nice to the wait staff when you go out to eat. You can take sarcasm as well as you dish it. You like to laugh. A lot. You are adventurous. You are not a smoker, not even an "occasional" or "social" smoker. You realize a text is fine, but a phone call is better. YOU aren't interested in a textationship either.
You are just as comfortable at a black tie event as you are at a hole in the wall bar. You aren't a super jealous person. You either know your way around the kitchen, or will help clean up the mess, or both. You aren't "that guy". You don't have any major hang ups or ex issues. You are not pretentious. You are a gentleman. You enjoy life and want to find someone special to spend it with.

I'm new to the area, so show me some cool sites! Music, scenery, art, cool restaurants, hiking trails. You name it, I'm up for it!
