Ok, difficult to put yourself in a little box, but I will try. I am so not high maintenance or drama, however a little neurotic. I have a few extra pounds on me, but I am in great shape and can keep up with whatever. I am happy with my life, but would like to have that special someone added in to snuggle with and do all the things you can't do alone (or are at least are more fun with someone). I have two dogs who are my four legged children (lost one last year). I have twin sisters who are important and special people in my life, and I have a group of very close friends (I've known them for 25+ yrs.) who I can count on for anything and vice versa. I also have a niece and three nephews who I adore wholeheartedly. Children are amazing spirits. We could learn a lot from them about how to love, play and live in the moment. I love the beach even when it's raining, been traveling to Capitola a lot the past couple of years; I love to go to car shows, races, etc. I have to admit I am over camping and fishing, did that when I was younger when my back bounced back more easily. I do love the outdoors but now, much more into relaxing on the beach and then sleeping in a nice place with a mattress!. I love to laugh so hard I almost pee my pants, and I love people. I am a Massage Therapist and I deal with peoples pain physically and emotionally, daily. It is the most rewarding thing I can think of doing. I left a high paying, corporate job 12 years ago to pursue something I am passionate about, and never looked back. I am liberal, but not a tree hugger, however, more likely to hug a tree than agree with a conservative. I love and connect to music in a deep way. My music taste is very eclectic, from alternative rock, heavy metal, funk, old school Dean M., Etta J., etc., not into country though - it just doesn't inspire me. I have a good life with the regular stresses. I've been hurt and have done a lot of healing and learning from those experiences. The past few years I have been on a path of higher consciousness, connection, and spirituality to improve my relationship with myself and others. I am doing this through things like Buddhism classes, Meditation and Guitar lessons, who knows what is next?! Life is an amazing journey if we can remain present in the now of it, good or not so good the lessons and gifts are abundant. There is more, but I am tired of talking about myself. Ask me anything and you are likely to get an honest answer. Also, I am not looking for a serial dater, I am looking for a relationship, starting with a friendship first, of course. So, I am looking for someone who is connected and present in the relationship, dares to communicate, loves to laugh, and does what he says. I know you are out there, yes? One more thing; I am not interested in trading massages with you cuz I don't know ya and I am not looking for clientele on a dating site, just sayin! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and maybe say "Hi".
