"I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living." - Anais Nin
I am funny, goofy, serious and smart. I laugh harder when I try to explain why I am laughing. I usually have a smile or smirk on my face because I am easily amused. I will not give up on people easily - as I see good in almost everyone. I am a true friend who is always available to my family and friends, especially when they are in need of a non-judging ear. I like adventure and humor. I am a survivor of many tragedies and miracles... I love life because I love deeply. I love to laugh because of the tears I have had. I am gracefully clumsy which makes me charismatic. I am perfect because I am not.
I am my most authentic self when I am out in nature, especially near water. I find beauty in almost everything when I am in the outdoors. I still believe I will find that spot that no one has discovered before and I always find really cool things that I call "treasures" out in nature. I love people who "get that". I truly love camping, fishing ( I worked on Party Boats in the bay as the net girl for the guys fishing all through school and I would take a little tin boat out to the brothers at night and fish for Stryper. I caught my first salmon on a mini yacht outside of the Golden Gate.. I was getting really sick.. but did not give up until I brought that stinker of a fighter onto the boat LOL) ,hiking and exploring. I love to dance. Is till ride my skateboard when I can, as I have been riding one since I was six years old. I have a love for classic cars... you know.. the ones with the engine right side up. LOL!!
I am active. I have been skydiving, white water rafting, extreme camping, zip lining, boogie boarding (prefer warmer waters) and have jumped off of cliffs into water. I have helped coach and umpire Little League teams. I will take a live game (baseball, football, hockey & basketball) over TV any day. I love movies.. but I am not one to sit in front of a TV unless it is cuddle time or I am exhausted. I like visiting new places and meeting new people. When I have traveled.. I go the unbeaten path and really try to experience what the local's experience.
I love art, music and photography. I love how beauty can be captured and each photograph tells a story. I don't do drama, complaining or whining. I feel if you have time to complain about something, you have time to do something about it. If you cannot do something about it.. then change your perspective. I like having real & meaningful conversations about almost everything. I love passion and those that have passion about life... as we only live once that I know of for sure.I am intelligent and I love to learn. I also love to read.. yah.. an actual real book (although I have some really cool comic books from when I was kid. LOL)
I love humor and I love the art of wit . Humor can cure everything I think. I am a very positive person and I would rather share things positive than anything negative. I do not manufacture drama and I carry no baggage... I take care of my stuff as it happens... does not mean I am not free of scars.. as everyone has them and once healed... they add character. I don't cosign other people's manufactured drama either. I love people who are real.
Don't judge me by my looks as there is way more meaningful stuff below the surface. I am for sure not shallow and I do not mix well with those that are.I am very secure with myself as a woman, I am low maintenance and I truly love being a mom to my daughter. I am all about honesty. I really like and respect people who are honest. If you love yourself and are secure with who you are, I feel honesty is piece a cake and no masks are necessary.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Relaxed environment and/or something really fun.
