My passion for life is catching, and so is my optimism. My laugh is distinct. I bet I can teach you something new. I sing and write songs. I bike and lift weights; I ran my first Tough Mudder this year and am going to do another one. I am frequently told I look 7-10 years younger than I really am, and I think that is partly because of my attitude and partly because I keep myself in good shape. I've been told I look even prettier in person than in my photos :)
I let my Mensa membership expire a long time ago. Sometimes I take myself a little too seriously, but I can see the humor in that too.
Music is super important to me; I would love to find a fellow musician on here. My music tastes run the gambit, but lately have been listening to metal/stoner rock (Clutch, Down) and also singer/songwriter music (Peter Bradley Adams, Damien Jurado). In the past I've been more into EDM, world music, and jazz. I have a CD of original music, and have done some tracks with other bands.
I have an 11 year old son, who is my ray of light. His father and I co-parent amicably and are friends. I am not looking for a surrogate father. Nor am I looking for a husband. I listed that I am looking for a relationship, but that's a long term goal. I'm particular about who I meet. I believe in taking things slow; I am not rushing into anything.
I like to keep a first date short (a drink or a cup of coffee) to give us a chance to meet each other, talk and see if we click. No pressure, no strings. If we like each other we can always schedule a second date!
