Thank you for stopping by to read my profile. I do hope that you take the time to read through it and find something that interests you. I'd love to hear from you.
The reason I joined this site is to meet new friends, explore new places, and learn what fun things there are to do in Santa Cruz and the surrounding areas. I would enjoy meeting someone who shares my enthusiasm for affection, kindness, caring, trustworthiness, honesty, and independence. He would enjoy traveling to his or my favorite close or far off places, or explore new. He would like watching live sports (baseball, hockey, football) and hanging out with me just for fun. He is easy-going, understanding, and non-judgmental. He is content in his life, health conscious, and has similar values and interests.
I believe a healthy relationship involves a balance of my interests, his interests, and our interests; we learn and grow together and we are best friends in the good and bad times.
At the same time, I realize relationships take time to develop. I do not have any timelines for marriage rather only to make a new friend, establish a good foundation and go from there. I would however enjoy being in a stable, loving, caring, strong relationship that might someday become more permanent. I don't have kids and am not opposed to dating someone who has kid(s). I'd love to meet someone that makes me laugh and smile when I see a text from him or when he picks me up for a date.
I live an active life, and spend time with friends and being outdoors. I also work hard and often long hours. It's important to me that we both want to spend the necessary time getting to know each other either in an active, fun setting or more intimately alone.
I'm drama free and expect to be respected and will give same back to a kind gentleman.
I'm not interested in serial dating or players; I'm all grown up and I expect the same mentality from the man I'm dating. At this point in my life I'd just like to meet someone who wants to enjoy life, have fun, and invest the necessary time developing a friendship with me with no expectations but is also ready to someday settle down with the right person.
My friends would say I'm outgoing, adventurous, spontaneous, fun loving, affectionate (I enjoy holding hands and cuddling with the right person), intelligent, and family oriented. I like to laugh, explore new places, hang around people who are funny, witty, silly, intelligent, and enjoy good conversation. You'll find me in flip flops and jeans for the most part but I do clean up well when going out...:-)
I’m a good listener. I’m non-judgmental, responsible, and I don’t take life for granted. I prefer daisies or sunflowers rather than roses because they are practical and last longer; however, receiving flowers is not as important to me as being able to communicate well with my partner.
A few hobbies of mine are hiking, hang gliding, walking, Crossfit, playing on the beach, surfing, slacklining, ziplining, skydiving, camping, dining out, going to the movies, concerts (mostly country), breweries and wineries, festivals, museums, weekend road trips, etc. I would also like to travel abroad or to the east coast someday.
A few things I would like to learn are scuba diving, playing tennis, stained glass, and sculpting.
Alternatively, I enjoy staying home, cooking a healthy dinner, drinking a glass of wine or beer, cuddling on the couch, or watching a movie with a bowl of popcorn, and simply relaxing.
I enjoy being creative and I love to sing. I have an eclectic taste for music genre and there’s not much I don’t enjoy listening to but I do gravitate toward country.
I like any type of food from Japanese, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Greek, German, Thai, etc.
Thank you again for reading my profile. I'm a genuine normal woman seeking a genuine normal man so take a chance at replying or be the first to send a message. If you've gotten this far in my profile what have you got to lose? I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
