I am originally from New Hampshire, but moved to California 16 years ago – just packed up and moved here!
I'm generally happy, shy at first, but once I get to know you...it's all over! I tend to be in a good mood and am pretty laid back.
I like to canoe/kayak on lakes and go camping but can't really do those alone - so if you are a bit of an adventurous spirit, that would be nice. I also ride a recumbent tricycle. I enjoy museums and the beach. I would like to try geocaching.
I have a positive outlook on life and don't stress about the small stuff. Working with kids is a passion (former math teacher, current middle school vice principal) and I spend much of my free time doing extra things at school. I could really use a reason to be there less :) I am very honest, but always in a positive and diplomatic way. I like to learn from others about their interests and backgrounds - so someone who is willing to share their knowledge with me is a must. I secretly like puzzles - logic and otherwise...so I have a dorky side.
For a smart person, I do some silly (blonde) things - like burning my chest while ironing my shirt when it is still on! I am always good for a laugh at my own expense! I also have a silly side that comes through more often than it probably should!
I have the best friends that any person deserves, they are truly wonderful and I am very lucky to have them. I know this, and as such I am fiercely loyal to them.
Short chubby happy fun left-handed smart blonde :). What else could you ask for in a companion?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Starbucks or Peet's...that way if it is awkward it only lasts until the beverage is gone, and if it is great, you can get a refill or sip slowly.
