I can't see meet me, send me a message :).
I'm an intelligent, low-maintenance, low-drama, passionate, fun-loving yet hard working, normal, small-town Michigan girl who is looking for someone who enjoys life. I enjoy spending time with friends, theater, music, movies, and traveling. Looking for someone who enjoys simple things in life, as well as some adventure! I make healthy lifestyle choices, like working out every day, (combination of orangetheory and barre), clean eating, and getting out and enjoying the outdoors in California. I've learned it's all a must in my 40's and results take way longer than they used to....but I'm addicted to how good it makes me feel. I will always have curves, but they're shrinking every day. :)
I'm definitely able to laugh at myself, and enjoy people who can do the same. My sense of humor tends to run to the sarcastic/smartass side, yet, that being said, I don't like people who aren't kind to others. I'm pretty open-minded, realizing that my opinions are just that, and differences are what make life exciting. I'm easy going and down-to-earth. I'm often told I'm the most normal/genuine girl they've met, lol (I'm hoping that doesn't mean boring). I believe life is too short not to jump in, go after what you want and enjoy it! I'm looking for someone honest and real, who is okay with being silly. I think the small things in life define a lot of who you are. Friendships for me are long lasting; my closest friends are from elementary school. I work hard, but I want to balance that with spending my free time with friends and people who make me laugh.
I wholeheartedly believe in romance and passion. I'm looking for a partner in life, someone with their own interests as well as some that are shared. I'd like someone that I enjoy hanging out with and has time to get together, that doesn't bring drama into my life, a little romance, and great chemistry. I make friends and talk to new people easily, so I'm not afraid to go with you to a dinner or a party where I don't know anyone ;) One thing I've learned through this process is that I must not be very photogenic, as I'm constantly told I look better in person, LOL.
I've been lucky enough to travel quite a lot for work, but I still have many places I'd love to see or to explore the ones I've visited with someone special. I love long weekends anywhere, and I can pack a bag in 10 minutes or less! I'm comfortable in jeans and flip flops at a backyard barbecue, as well as in a fancy dress with a fancy updo :) I can be showered and out the door in 15 minutes with a ponytail ;) (The fancy dress may take a little longer). I enjoy cooking and curling up to watch a movie or tv at home, as well as heading out to dinner or a movie/theater. I enjoy a funky dive bar with great music.
At the end of it all, I'm just a normal girl looking for a normal guy. Someone who isn't afraid to take a chance and open to the possibility of making a connection. I've found if we're not within an hour of each other, it's just tough to get to know each other. I value honesty and communication, even when it's tough. Basically, I try to live life as "why not?!"
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I like a casual meeting after a couple of phone conversations. Sangria is a plus :)
