I know we're all here to broaden our search for whatever it is we're hoping to find (well, most of us are, others are BAU suspect lol!). Here's something I don't understand: Why would you add me to your "Favorites" then never contact me? Lol....just silly! Anyway...
What I believe:
I believe that romance is an art that is carefully crafted to ensure that your targeted audience will walk away knowing that he/she is on your mind. I believe simplicity can bring the most profound results. I believe that fish kisses, little notes and a quick text/call to say "I'm thinking of you," can make a heart skip a beat. On that note, I believe that too much texting is another way of keeping your distance, and not really wanting to be in a relationship. I believe that relationships grow when each person works on letting the other know they are important. I believe in hugs, holding hands and playful bantor (sweet sarcasm is my specialty ;)...). Most of all, I believe that when two people share that special kind of chemistry, everything they do together is magical.
I'm easy to get along with, yet a very strong and confident person. I love to joke around and spend time with family and friends. I can dress up as well as dress down and am comfortable in most environments. Meaning: I could go hiking in the morning, then turn around for a night on the town that same evening. Or, I can spend the day at the beach then take a nice hot bath when I come home, put a fire on, my pj's, and continue reading the book that's got me completely enraptured in one of the many subjects I find interesting this time around.
I enjoy discovering new foods, wines and places and think it's a good time to find someone to share new discoveries. I say "share", because dependency is not an option. I am an individual, you should be too. Relationships are much more interesting when the two individuals involved refrain from morphing into each other. Wouldn't you agree? As much as we need similar interests to nurture a strong relationship, we also need the differences that each person can bring to add spark, adventure, intellect, or silliness to a budding romance. At least, that's my take and I'm sticking to it!
Traveling and discovering new and different cultures is at the top of my list. Has anyone ever been on a cattle drive (dude ranch) vacation? You know, City Slickers? That's so on my list! I'm also looking forward to hiking/biking/walking through old Italy and learning how to cook that scrumptious food while coupling it with the perfect Italian wine - yum!
I've run three marathons, some 10 and 5Ks and enjoy hiking, bbq's, and relaxing with good company. One of my favorite places to relax is at a river - any river, just as long as there are friends, good food (or any food!)/drink (alcohol or not), music and good conversation. I also volunteer with the USMS every year at B2V (if you know what this is we're probably on the same wavelength - if not, I'll share if you ask).
Music: Like it all.....yes, including Country - love it! I even like quite a few in the rap genre..."Can I get a..." If you don't, no problem. We can find something mutually enjoyable when together, and when apart we can let the other half rip! (For those of you with a sense of humor like mine - that was not a reference to flatulence. Egad! Get your mind out of the, well...)
So, this is just some introductory info. Getting to know me is a completely different animal. Take a chance. You won't regret it. Even if there's no spark, I'm a great person to add to your list of friends. Thanks for taking the time to read ALL THE WAY DOWN to here. I appreciate your time. Best of luck to everyone as you venture towards this "Crazy little thing called love...." (Queen).
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
The first MEET should be in a public setting that allows us to get to know each other. Planning to go somewhere secluded, or "alone", or walking on the beach holding hands and kissing is just creepy and would never work for me on a FIRST meet or date. That stuff comes after you get to know each other, and decide to escalate the relationship. Less can be more...
