"Stop waiting for Prince Charming. Get up and find him. The poor fool may be stuck in a tree or something..."
I don't have a specific type, but in general, I am attracted to tall masculine non-effeminate/non-metro types, but who don't hunt. Cops, military, big trucks, shooting, cowboy hats, flannels, steel-toe boots, lumberjacks. 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 (let's travel instead!). Oh yeah, and who would not take one of those creepy bathroom mirror selfies ; P
I'm a rather playful, spontaneous, optimistic 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 if I like where you live. I work from home, and can live anywhere, so that makes life flexible. Been quite the vagabond lately, and the idea of living different places appeals to me. Would love to live on the east coast (love D.C.!) or in Portland. 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 23 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 (with the exception of COPS marathons at my friend's house). 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 would never find me in IKEA, I have no interest in current pop culture, and I gravitate towards everything 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.
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. 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 (it's fine if you already have them though), is playful and funny, is tall, would not be offended by my non-religious beliefs, and has old-fashioned manners. I'm looking for someone who is willing to try new things like 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, Homeland, American Experience, Ab Fab, Parks & Recreation, Twin Peaks, Northern Exposure, The Muppet Show, Game of Thrones
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
All kinds, but especially The Little Prince, books on Victoriana and history, poetry.
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:
Guys who get their dogs from breeders instead of rescue, are a total turn-off.
What's with 90% of your profiles starting with something like "I'm a pretty laid back/kickback guy"? Is that code for lazy?
I apologize, but I usually don't respond to messages, and these are the reasons why:
1. If you are under 6’. Sorry, 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 didn't make an effort to make your profile interesting, and the pictures are bad selfies or blurry
3. If you want kids for sure (I'm fine with other people's kids though)
4. If you selected "wants to date, but nothing serious"
5. If you hunt
