I want to experience all that I can - the good and the bad...., life is too short not to! OK - I'm mostly looking for the good part since I've had some of the bad and......enough already! Realistically, I know no one ever "gets it all" but, hey, it's the journey and not the destination, right? I like hiking, try to work out at least 3 times a week,time with friends and family. I try my best best to eat a healthy diet but every once in a while, well...I just need some chocolate!! I like travelling (by motorcycle or a car, if I have to), relaxing, working out, hi energy, low energy - both ends of the spectrum I like hanging in a crowd,listening to music and watching people or challenging myself on a local hiking trail. Love to dance (although I will admit, it's been a while) - love to meet people - like to do adventurous things - even if it's just once ('cause if I don't like it - I'm probably not gonna do it again! LOL).
I like weekend trips to exciting cities or just to the mountains to relax in front of a fire in a cabin in the woods. I enjoy doing things that make me happy, including volunteering for things I think are important in life. A lot of my time is spent doing community service and giving back to those that have given so much. So, really, it's not just about me. I believe in the freedoms that people have fought and died for, free enterprise, working hard, playing hard....good karma. There are some issues that I'm very passionate about....I am a conservative...so if you're a liberal, we can be friends and agree to disagree... but I've found that it is important to have similar views on the world when looking for a long term relationship.
To describe the type of man that I'm looking for would be impossible because I have found that I am attracted to different people for different reasons. There are many qualities to which I'm attracted....qualities like openness, honesty, self-reflection, soulfullness, humility, compassion, a sense of honor and ethic. Of course, chemistry is important along with physical attraction and an intellectual connection. So I try not to limit myself ....I'm looking for a number of things ....friendship, the chance to grow personally and emotionally ....just maybe a soul mate.
I live my life by doing. I'm not usually sitting around waiting for things to happen. I work 2 jobs, volunteer a lot in my community and so I stay busy. I've been contacted by some that think I'm too busy for a relationship. Well, when I find one, I don't think that will be the case. But if you're looking for someone who waits for the world to come to her, I'm probably not your gal! There may be some timing issues, but if it's meant to be, it will be.
In retrospect...I like where I've been....looking ahead, I'm excited about where I'm going.

OUR TROOPS ROCK
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Just a relaxed meeting - restaurant or sittin' on a barstool, hike a local trail or go to a local event. Looking for commonality and like-mindedness. And if it's just the start of a great friendship....awesome!
