Back in the Bay Area. I've been on this website for a long time, but not active on it. It's nice to be able to spend time with someone that can make me smile, not try to change each other, but just enjoy each other. I've lived in many places because I am an excavator, if it doesn't work, don't smash on it to work. I love to go on road trips and see new and different things. I love to go to the beach in the cold, build a fire and lose track of time. A gentleman that knows how to treat a lady is a major turn on to me, I don't mind dating someone older than me, it's quite nice when the connection is right. I just moved back from the east coast, would love to rediscover the area with someone, show me something new!
On the road, again... need to update this profile. DC wasn't the place for me, stuffed suits and no emotions. Moving to PA June 30, I've been in town for the last month and found that there are such things as social people on the east coast (only take offense if you are a DC lover). The rest of this profile is pretty much dead on, I just want a great man to treat me like the great woman that I am.
Born and raised in California, like totally. A bay area woman that loves to see the world. I want to date and feel close with someone special again,
I moved from California to DC in January to work in a studio here, I make glass and show the curious people the fiery side of my art. It's a fantastic medium. I've not really made a lot of friends here, I'm going to let you in on a little secret about this place: people are really high strung here. I don't want to talk about politics, really. I choose to remain out of the loop of that world, it's a good feeling, I dare you to try it out.
I rent a little house here and find myself doing odd chores a lot. I cannot tell you how much I value a good parking spot now, I think that has so much to do with why people are in such a rush and so gruff in passing. I have perfected the perfect morning cup of tea or coffee- boring? I don't think so, I'm taking the time to treat myself right from the time I wake up, you should try it out. I go to bikram yoga and really love how it's just about me and the woman staring back at me in the mirror, she a fox! I'm loving the fact that I am loving me more on a daily basis. Is that a narcissists mantra? It shouldn't be, doing for others is my instinct, one often forgets oneself in that action.
I lived in Europe for five years, Japan for two (I was in Japan for the earthquake and tsunami) and wound up absorbing a lot of the languages and ultimately just realizing the world is larger than the horizon I can see in front of me. I decided to take the time to really observe and participate with different cultures, customs, holidays, festivals, cuisines, attitudes, perspectives, perceptions, routes, dialects, treatment of the elderly as well as children, approaches to everyday common things right down to light switches, shopping carts and claw machines at carnivals; noticing how we all borrow and lend to the world. I wound up going to several art schools and eventually graduated from the best glassblowing school on the planet. It wasn't something that I planned, it just played out that way.
I am simplifying my life- more time for tea, catching up with old as well as making new friends, perfecting my fireplace appreciation skills- these things are important to me. I've found myself interested in finding someone to enjoy these things with me. Someone that is a sort of a Dudley Do Right, but there's an edge of a dark side- I have those qualities in me as well. I am looking for someone that will introduce me to another approach in life, I tend to do everything for myself, that gets mundane. I'm just looking for a good person...you know who you are.
Country music makes my ears bleed…really.
No religious nut jobs, thanks.
I'm not into sending off nude pics when starting to get to know each other, I can't believe I have to point that out.
I can't really be put into one category; I'm short and round, a girlish tomboy. One thing that can be said is that I am a balanced woman - I got me some yin in my yang.
