There is a lot to read here so if you don't like to read, you might wish to try someone else's page. I'm working on a CliffsNotes version...
I like to smile and I like to laugh, but I like to make others laugh even more. I enjoy drinking but I’m not a drunk, honest, it is just the strong Irish blood running through my veins. I’m not overly religious and I have a very open mind about such things, so if you are a religious nut (or just a nut in general) keep fishing.
I am extremely, brutally honest and it has a habit of getting me in trouble. I speak my mind and I do not hold back which some people enjoy and others tend to be repulsed by. I believe that life is too short to go through it with your eyes only half-opened or your life half-lived. If I am your friend I am loyal to the point of insanity, which often turns around to bite me in the ass. I’m very empathetic and caring to those that I love and like and mostly uncaring to those I do not. It is easy to tell my mind set or mood, I do not try to hide it or hide anything about who I am. I have often been told that I have an old soul, a young heart and a stubborn streak a mile wide.
I love art and nature and the outdoors. My idea of camping does not involve a RV, TV and George Foreman grill! Give me a tent, a knife and some Smores.
I love to read. I also love to write. I am a published author and poet, but not very famous. I also love theater and drama. (The stage kind of drama, not the personal kind.) I love scary movies, comic books, RPGs, science fiction shows, astronomy, history, nature and just curling up on a couch and cuddling with someone. I like to think deep thoughts and have deep conversations with someone, sometimes about the most random things! I love to cook, but only foods that I like, and I'm always creating my own recipes. If you ask me to cook you something I will probably do it to be nice, but if I don’t like it I’m not going to eat it. I am sort of a picky eater.
I have a huge heart. It is another one of those things that tends to bite me in the ass. I love animals, especially cats. Loving animals is a must. I do not like being mislead or lied to. I have lived all over the United States, from coast to coast and have recently arrived in Georgia from Colorado and I am still learning my way around.
With all the things that have bitten me in the ass over the years it is a wonder mine does not have a permanent set of teeth marks on it...
Pet Peeves and other facts:
-I hate being interrupted! I do not flap my gums needlessly (most of the time) and I do not interrupt you (usually)! That being said I tend to babble and tumble over my words when I am nervous.
-Saying or believing that you were born (or found your way) into a situation or social caste as an excuse for your actions. The only person stopping you from being whoever or whatever you want to be is you. If you want the stars, reach for them.
-I am chivalrous and a romantic at my core, but my friends will tell you that I also have a bit of a 'Bad Boy' image. Sort of like Sir Galahad meets Johnny Cash. I am a real knight in shining armor, not just a jerk in tin foil.
-Use proper English. If you send me an email filled with “ur 2 cute”, “Omg rofl”, or do not know the difference between “They’re, There or Their” and “To and Too” l will probably not respond. Do not get the wrong idea. I text just as much as the next person, but an email should not be written in text format. I’m not asking for Shakespeare or Chaucer, just English. (Though if you can write me a sonnet I will be impressed)
-I would like to someday make a living by writing as a novelist.
-I am not judgmental and understand that no one is perfect. I appreciate a woman who is bold enough to tell me what she wants.
-I am afraid of spiders, any kind of spider of any size, shape or color. That does not mean I cannot suck it up to slay the little beasties if needed, but it does mean that my first instinct is to scream and point (in a very manly way, mind you).
-I also am afraid of needles. Odd considering that I have and like tattoos, I know. I just dislike having big, fat hospital needles shoved into me.
-I have two small cats that I like better than most people and I will not give them up so you have to be able to accept both myself and my furry little girls.
-I give one hell of a good massage.
P. S. I am a ninja. No, seriously, I am...
What I am looking for:
-Someone who's generally calm and low maintenance, but who can also show spontaneity and go on the occasional adventure when circumstances permit.
-Someone who has goals, dreams, ambitions and a plan to make it all happen.
-Someone who is grounded and has a strong sense of identity, purpose and independence.
-Someone who does not want or need to rely on me for economic security but rather comes to the relationship with existing resources.
-Someone who is ready and able to give me freedom and support for my personal or professional goals.
-Someone who demands respect and makes a good impression on others.
-Redheads get bonus points.
-If you have a natural Irish or British accent you get bonus points.
-If you are independently wealthy you get bonus points, but not as many as if you were a redhead.
-If you are independently wealthy, a redhead and look like Alyson Hannigan or Milla Jovovich then we are getting married.
If you want to know more about me then ask. I do not mind answering questions. I do not like posting pictures of myself on the internet, but I am happy to share/trade to serious inquirers. Also, the IM portion of this website does not work on my computer. Email works best.

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'll try anything once (twice if I like it) but what matters most is getting to know each other. First dates are always a little awkward so I usually prefer a first date to be something low pressure and simple, like sushi or coffee.
If you are reading my profile because you got a message from the 'Meet Me' feature then you should know that I am interested in knowing you. There are thousands of beautiful women on this site, so if I clicked 'yes' it means that I have read over your profile and that I think you have an inner beauty that I would like to know, not because you might have a pretty face.
If any of this sounds like something you'd like, message me. If you're on this site, it is assumed that you are messaging more than one person. It's called 'fishing' for a reason. My feelings will not be hurt if you message me and find out I'm not what you expected. Just be honest. Happy fishing!
