Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for. –Lawrence Block
I have a tender heart. I know how to take care of myself and sometime I neglect my own needs; but my genuine interest is in taking care of others. If my friends ever need help or are in trouble, I will extend my arms out to lend a hand and help them so they can get their footing back. I offer them compassion and I go out of my way to be helpful. If they need someone who will listen, I will listen. I am trustworthy and empathetic. I am pretty direct with my friends; when they need advice, I offer it in a straightforward, direct manner, without sugar coating stuff.
I’d like to say I THINK like an artist, but to be more appropriate, I feel as though I SEE like an artist… I have my own original and inventive ways of thinking. I can think in conventional ways but opt for the avant-garde way. I tend to get bored with what everyone else is comfortable with. I know most people like “the familiar”. I feel as though I live life at a fast pace, I tend to push the boundaries of personal and social nature. I love exploring new ideas, new solutions to old problems, to tackle a task in a new direction through uncharted waters! I take risks and for this, my eyes are wider and my breath quicker.
When I go out to accomplish something…whatever it is…I like to know my goals, develop a general plan and then get things done. I believe in intuition as well as organization. I trust impulses as much as strategies and I try and value spontaneity as much as I do efficiency. Just trying to keep it flexible…the best way to reach a goal is not always in a straight line!!
I can stay in control when my emotions are on the verge of chaos, but I can also go into the tangles of emotions when I have a friend to lean on. I am aware of the emotional temperatures and I don’t like to argue. I would rather walk away and cool off before having to approach a disagreement with someone. I adapt to whatever changes in emotion emerge in a conversation and I like to think I cope well with it.
Some days I want to hang out by myself, not answer the phone, and make the world go away. The next day I could call everyone, make a lunch date with a friend, and try to find something to get into for the night. It may be the phases of the moon, or something I ate; some days are just like that. It may reflect something deep in my personality. IDK! I am a great conversationalist and thrive in the wonderful kinds of connections I have with my family and friends. I love coming home to my son; but if no one is home, I can equally enjoy just chillaxin at home by myself.
I am comfortable with almost any group of people I’m around. They could be people that are crunked and wild or calm and laid-back, no matter what I can (usually) adapt cuz I’m me! If I’m talking with someone who isn’t really comfortable with talking first, I am pretty comfortable taking the lead; but if someone else would rather talk, I am pretty laid back and I will let them take charge. I am sometimes outgoing and sometimes reserved, I normally adapt to whatever the state of the circumstances may be. I try to make people comfortable when I am around. If the situation gets outta hand, I can usually chill someone out and distract them from the situation. If I can’t calm them down, I will most likely maintain my cool, and if they get nasty I know how to keep a civil tongue and remain sane.
Wow, I can't believe you made it this far! Guess you may be a little interested then!! I have a 12 year old son, he is my world. So if this bothers you. . .move on! I work part time and go back and forth with full semesters of college. (Sometimes am overwhelmed with school and need a break.) I don't party anymore, every once in a while, maybe go to the bar and have a beer. I don't regret a thing, I just learn lessons. I learn more and more every day. Everything happens for a reason. I try to not let the little things get to me. I realize that life is too short, so you have to live a little. I am an optimistic, always looking for the good in things. I love my friends and they are always there for me. I listen to what’s in my head and try to follow my heart. I am a major joke-ster. I love to laugh and have a good time, but I can also be serious when needed. I contemplate almost everything. I am told that I am honest to a fault. If you have any questions for me, just ask, I'll try not to be shy! I am on here to make friends!! I prefer a Redneck Romeo definitely not into a gangster paradise type of guy. I would love to meet someone and fall in love...blah blah...it doesn't work like that! You have to get to know a person first!
***********If you do decide to write me a message, make it (in a sense) personal. If I feel like you are one of those guys who message many women the same message, I most likely will not reply! If you are looking for an easy girl...I am NOT her! Don't waste your time, nor mine!
