"Stop waiting for Prince Charming. Get up and find him. The poor fool may be stuck in a tree or something..." For those familiar with Adam Ant: "Desperate, but not serious" is how I'm beginning to sum-up guys on this site : D
In general, I am attracted to masculine non-effeminate/non-metro types, but who still have a soft spot for animals. Guys who don't dress in styley or trendy clothes with logos all over - I'll take a guy in a flannel and steel toe boots any day... cowboy hats, uniforms, tool belts... Guys who like to fix things, are assertive, and who actually follow-through with their actions. A well mannered real man who makes his lady feel like a real lady. Someone looking for a traditional long term relationship, but is not set on having kids. Oh yeah, and who would not take one of those creepy bathroom mirror selfies ; P
I'm a rather playful, spontaneous and lighthearted person, who likes to not take life too seriously. Bay area native, who definitely loves city life, but grew up in a woodsy neighborhood, and a country girl at heart. My head is in the city, but my heart is in the country. I am also willing to move for the right person; so long distance dating could be a possibility. I work from home, and can live anywhere, so that makes life flexible. Would love to live on the east coast or in Portland.
I consider myself to be an optimistic person who enjoys life very much. Everything interests me, especially new experiences. Only boring people get bored. I just need a ball of yarn and an empty room, and I'll be fine. I love animals (and not eating them for the past 22 years). I'm usually busy because I want to do everything there is to do, yet lying in bed and watching a doc. with my three cats is a coveted act too. I don't watch TV and don’t like going to people’s houses when it is on. I have a cheesy sense of humor, but can also be dry and sarcastic. I work as an Executive Assistant, as well as have a pet photography business. you wiould never find me in IKEA, and I have no interest in current pop culture, and gravitate towards vintage: "Not all the old is good, but all the new is bad" - Wallace Nutting. I hate all this new crap - where did all the charm go? Family and friends are a huge part of my life. I write terrible Gothic poetry. I am friends with people in every type of scene and I snort when I laugh.
Who I would like to meet:
I would like to meet someone whose ultimate goal would be to find a person to grow old and sit on a porch with (preferably with a shotgun and bottle of whiskey). I'm extremely romantic and want to share that with someone. I'm looking for someone who is honest and would never cheat on their partner, likes cats and is not allergic to them, eats healthy and stays in shape, would respect my views on animal rights and the fact that I don't eat meat, does not hunt, is not set on having kids, is mature and emotionally available, is playful and funny, is taller than me in my beloved heels (I'm 6' in them), is not so religious that they would be offended by my non-religious beliefs, and has old-fashioned manners. I'm looking for someone who is willing to try new things. One passion is good, but please be multi-faceted in your tastes. I can never understand when someone does not want to hear a new type of music, explore a new town or try a new type of food. Have some type of edge please, whatever that may be… Since I am so social, I would like to find someone who would enjoy being social with me. Then again, I love living in the woods and pursuing nature for activities too... I'm quite adaptable - love it all!
No drug users, smokers or people with STD's please.
I love all types of music! Love the Cure's early 80's dark stuff, Chrysalide, Waylon Jennings, The Smiths, Dave Brubeck, Bauhaus, Les Paul & Mary Ford, :wumpscut:, Eartha Kitt, seeing live rockabilly shows, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Laura Viers, Haujobb , 50 Cent, Dead Can Dance, Credence, Pink Floyd, Tribe Called Quest, Patsey Cline, Dave Dudley, Simon Garfunkel, Skinny Puppy, Chopin, Ladytron, Bill Withers, Led Zeppelin, Dolly Parton, Bolt Thrower, Metallica, Lee Hazelwood, Buena Vista Social Club, Dean Martin ... oh the list goes on and on...
Dexter, American Experience, Ab Fab, Parks & Recreation, Twin Peaks, Northern Exposure, The Muppet Show
Movies: The River (1951), Harold & Maude, The Jerk, The Village, Sunset Blvd, God Grew Tired of Us, Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, Microcosmos. So many great doc’s out there – I keep a list of my favorites

So funny - love this spoof on online dating! Let's make sure this does not happen:
Or this... sorry for being so crass right off the bat:
I apologize, but I may not respond to everyone's messages for one these reasons:
1. If you are under 6’ (I apologize in advance for that too. I’ve tried, but I just don’t feel as feminine in my beloved heels when I am towering over my man, and I like traditional masculine and feminine roles. I'm between 5'11" and 6'1" in my heels)
2. If you clearly have not read my profile
3. If you have creepy ab or lonely bathroom mirror pictures, and/or have only written a bland brief description
4. If you want kids for sure
5. If you are not seeking a real relationship.
