I feel like I'm a very well rounded person. I'm spontaneous, but responsible. I love to get dirty rock climbing, hiking and shooting pistols (at targets.. sorry.. I DO NOT shoot animals) but then I like to put on a dress and stilettos. I am very intelligent, academically and philosophically, and love those kind of in depth conversations, but really.. someone with a big, kind, genuine heart is the only requirement.
I am extremely honest and expect the same in return. I'm always surprised at the level of deception among society that is accepted as "the norm."
I am a fun, fun person.. if loud laughter bothers you.. you will not like me!! :) I am easy going and enjoy life. Primarily all I ask for is respect.. I am from the south originally, and respect is a big deal for me. In my opinion, it's just about being kind.
I have 3 little boys that are my world. I share 50/50 custody with their dad. They are incredible kids, and my greatest accomplishment. I am a great mom, only because I have such wonderfully special boys. I do not share them with just anyone, so please do not be offended by me keeping this private.
I enjoy helping people.. it's why I became a pediatric RN, and a personal trainer years ago. It's just part of my core. I believe it is in our innate nature to love and help one another, not that everyone has to be extreme like myself and make a career out of it! lol I believe "karma" is immediate.. well, kind of.. it would take one of those long conversations I was talking about to fully explain it.. but I think part of it is immediate, it's soul cleansing to do the next right thing. So, when we do the right thing.. like pick up the trash off of the ground, even though it isn't ours.. it frees us of ourself a bit. Ok, that probably didn't make sense to everyone, but it does lead me to another thing about myself.. I ramble, and am a bit ADHD! :)
I'm always looking for ways to better myself and grow as a person.. always looking for new experiences. There's not many things I will say "no" to, I'll try just about anything once.
I'm not shy, I rarely meet a stranger. I love social settings, but I'm equally happy one on one.
I'm looking for someone that enjoys life, laughing, having fun, being spontaneous, but that can still be responsible enough to maintain structure and stability. I bore with TV, so I need someone that has a vast array of interests like I do.. opera, rock climbing, dancing, art museums, snow boarding, live theater, kayaking, sky diving, bands, etc. (and I'd love to add some new ones to my list!) I'm hoping to meet someone that can be active with me, but also be okay having a down day every once in a while. Being real.
** I am in school online pursuing my 2nd degree, so I am very busy. If I do not respond, it is because I am delayed, or do not think that we are a match. Either way, sending me negative messages is not the way to get a response from me.** PS Narcissistics and/or heavy drinkers plz move past my profile! Happy fishing! :)
first time meeting: coffee or tea, no need to be trapped for a long period of awkwardness if it's just "not there." :)
Second meeting: I like to have active dates. It's fun when we both get to pick something we want to have the other try.. or something neither of us has tried before... for example... I take him climbing at the indoor gym, he teaches me to salsa dance or play a chord on the guitar... usually followed by getting cleaned up and having dinner. It doesn't really matter, just preferably something that gets the heart pumping first, then something where we can talk and get to know each other a bit better.
