My screen name does not mean that I prefer black men. Cocoa was a dog. PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME UNLESS YOU ARE RELATIVELY LOCAL TO PITTSBURGH. Also, if you have any addictions, gambling, smoking, chewing, drinking, etc., please pass me by. I do NOT have an extended profile.
I've had dating as my primary goal on this site for quite some time but, after giving it a lot of thought, I have come to realize that really isn't what I want any more. I very much want to find someone with whom I can have a serious relationship though I realize that no relationship begins that way. I am absolutely not the FWB type so if that is what you seek, please move on. I'd like to find a man that genuinely likes women and doesn't just want one around for the "obvious" reasons...LOL. I am intelligent, strong and independent but very compassionate. I think and communicate deeply, on every level, and won't settle for someone who doesn't have the ability to do the same.
My true passion is the outdoors and anything that gets me there. I love meeting new people and getting to know them. I don't think that having things in common with a prospective partner is necessarily the best thing. I prefer that we have different interests so that we can introduce each other to new things and broaden our horizons together. I can be a great friend, fun companion, excellent partner and a passionate lover. Just once in my life, I'd like to be in love with a man who wasn't a selfish lover so I could see how that felt. I would like to find someone who loves to explore. I have lots of hidden places and I want the right person to know them. I want to find his. I love to be spontaneous, to just pick up and go when someone has a good idea for a way to have some fun or excitement. I can't wait to share the things I love and to discover new passions. Maybe you are the right person to come along with me. Let's find out.
For those of you who want to know...YES I DO LIKE MOTORCYCLES :-)
If you don't have a true love for the outdoors, nature and animals, there is really no point in contacting me as those things are non-negotiable. Sorry but a girl's gotta have her standards :-)
I love Pittsburgh but I am not a fixture here and I would have no problem relocating to another area if I found the right gentleman.
If you consider yourself a work-a-holic, please do not contact me. I am looking for a partner...someone who wants to spend a lot of time with me...not money on me. I am not looking for someone who has to "fit me into" their busy schedule.
If ANYONE has ever told you that you are selfish, please pass me by. I utterly LOATHE selfish people and I DO NOT want them in my life.
If you show up at our first date with bad breath, there will NOT be a second (hard to believe that this needs to be stated but it's happened more than once so I am just trying to put halitosis out of my life for good...LOL.) I promise you that I will NOT have bad breath either...LOL.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I am really an outdoors girl which you may have surmised from my profile. AFTER A SUCCESSFUL FIRST MEETING, this is my idea of a nice first date. I would like to meet up early in the day and get some breakfast together. Then drive up 79 to McConnell's Mills and hike along the water all day. I would pack a picnic lunch in case we got hungry and we could eat it sitting on one of the huge rocks that line the creek in the sun. Then some more hiking. In winter there is nothing I enjoy more than walking through the woods, snow crunching under my feet while being able to see each others breath. That is actually my idea of heaven. After that, home for a quick shower and out for a nice dinner. What do you think?
