NEW DISCLAIMER: YES I LIVE IN COSTA RICA. POF FORCES ME TO PROVIDE A US CITY ON MY PROFILE. YES POF EXISTS HERE BUT HAS PROVEN FRUITLESS THUS FAR. I AM OPEN TO GET TO KNOW PEOPLE IN THE STATES BUT I AM NOT OFFERING UP MY COUCH OR BODY FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION!!!!! I KNOW THIS MAY NOT SEEM LIKE THERE ARE A LOT OF OPTIONS BUT IF YOU ARE AN INTERESTING, INTELLIGENT FREE SPIRIT AND WE CONNECT…WHO KNOWS? ALSO SEND A MESSAGE FELLAS. YOU CAN WRITE, CORRECT? I THINK THE 'MEET ME' FEATURE IS GETTING ABUSED ON HERE!
THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION. BACK TO THE PROFILE…
so this "online dating" thing takes a certain amount of faith and a good sense of humor to navigate. It seems as though we at least have that in common. Hmm, but to attempt to describe myself in a content window on POF…here goes…
I am a Northern Cali girl through and through. Yes I distinguish Nor Cal from So Cal, no offense So Cal-ians. I grew up in the true Nor Cal too. That's right all the way up there in the Redwood trees. About 15 years ago I moved to the valley (hate that label), Sacramento to be more precise, for school and to get out of Dodge. I had a wonderful experience my 14 years in Sacramento. Some experiences brought challenge and perspective and some where just simply great. All in all I managed to start a business, then transition to a very successful sales career and much much more importantly foster amazing friendships with people that I hold near and dear to my heart. But when I found myself longing for an adventure, a new perspective, challenge, healthy living and a tropical breeze, I decided to pick up and relocate to the Central Coast of Costa Rica. Some thought I was crazy for walking away from my career. Those that knew me best rooted me on. I'm glad I took the leap and have been taking part in this life experience like no other for just over a year now. I expected to miss my friends and family like crazy by moving to Costa Rica. I have. But I have gained so much too that I could never regret my decision to move here. I've also seen a healthy dose of visitors which helps- perhaps a result of living somewhere that is on everyones bucket list and being fortunate to be loved as I am.
The move to Costa Rica was much more of a running toward something, not at all running away from something. But I am still deciphering what is to come of this decision. I believe it is best to take life a day at a time for the moment. And although I am a very goal oriented person I am hanging up my 5 and 10 year plans for a chance to smell the roses for a bit. With that said there are a few must haves that are still in my scope…to start a family and another business. These are not small feats, I know. But to know me is to know that I will accomplish whatever I set my mind to. I'm so blessed in that way. By the way I do work and take care of all of my needs.
I love horseback riding and can often be found running my horse up my local beach or traipsing through the rainforest deep in the mountains.
I take my two dogs to the beach every morning for a walk/run.
I juice everyday, eat healthy, believe my body is my temple, feed my soul with love and goodness and am comfortable in my own skin.
Although I believe in healthy eating I am not so strict that I can't enjoy delicacies. And when I say delicacies I mean everything from foi gras to frankfurter at a ball game; local beer to Islay scotch; street food to interesting fusion. I am a foodie for sure.
I love to cook, really love it- not shocking given my last testimonial.
Laughter is one of the greatest gifts we are given. I don't take myself too serious and promise to do something incredibly embarrassing (unplanned) at some point that will make you laugh- it's how I roll.
Nature is my favorite form of art but I can appreciate almost any message of interpretation of beauty.
Good conversation is one of my absolute fav's.
I am at times a bit forgetful but have honed in on my list-making skills to compensate.
I would never do anything to intentionally hurt or disrespect another person or property BUT I do like feeling just a bit mischievous and will seek out a bit of "innocent trouble" to quench my thirst from time to time.
I think life should have a soundtrack and therefore love to listen to music all the time. I also like a broad spectrum of music.
When my favorite tunes are playing I am not above belting out the lyrics to them while in the car or shower- just feels right.
'Nuff about me. Onto you…
Please don't be an undercover smoker. No judgement but me no likey and I have a nose like a bloodhound.
At the risk of sounding intense don't bring any B.S. my way. The force is strong with me Luke and therefore my B.S. radar will pick up on your nonsense quickly.
Intelligence is sexy!
Be a gentleman. This means so much more than opening doors. Frankly the independent girl in me still struggles with allowing someone to do this for me silly as it may seem. A gentleman is also respectful, interested in what makes a woman tick, modest, caring and so much more. To sum it up I believe that a real man knows that if he takes care of a woman (a real woman of course) she will more than take care of him.
Physically I ask that you care about your health and body without being obsessed. Meaning of obsessed to me: you probably have a pic taken with your phone of you lifting your shirt to show your abs in front of your bathroom mirror. If this sounds like you, please leave my profile, we aren't a match my friend. But I do like someone that cares for themselves. Oh and I do find myself more attracted to taller men.
There's more of course but if you like what you have read so far then send me a message. And please say something other than "hi". This may come as a shocker to some but that is not considered an intriguing or original greeting to most women.
Otherwise happy fishing fellas...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
coffee, walk or something simple like sloth petting, mango hunting or macaw calling...
