My friends would describe me as both intense and silly. I’m introspective, always reaching for a deeper understanding of the world and my place in it. I'm also a romantic at heart, and I genuinely treat other people the way I would like to be treated.
I adore animals of every stripe and they are drawn to me as well. My Mom loves to tell the story of the morning she woke up to five year old me out on the back porch at sunrise with as many bowls, cups and saucers I could find, ALL the neighborhood's cats and the last of our milk.
My last pet was a beautiful budgie who kept me company for more than ten years. I can’t keep something in a cage so he flew all around and sat on my shoulder at my drafting table for most of his life.
I’m looking for a friend and lover. Someone bright and comfortable with herself. Someone to pal around with, discuss the crazy world we share and most importantly, laugh with. Someone equally passionate and physical. I stay in shape, like to run and hike, and do so as much as time allows.
I’m not conventional. I’m a progressive liberal, with a deep curiosity about almost all things (except country western celebrities and reality TV!). I recognize that might narrow the focus uncomfortably, but I cook so hopefully now I’m back in the black :).
I like nights out at nice restaurants. Candlelight. Wine. Or I like beer and bowling, shooting pool, comedy clubs. I love to dance but hate the club scene. Too damn crowded.
I am financially responsible and just had my best year ever, but I do prioritize personal creative goals and quality of life over material gain.
I have great friends and like to host game nights and dinner parties. I’m fairly well read and very studied at storytelling itself. If you like a good story, we might really hit it off!
Oh, and I want to take swing dance and salsa classes. Who's in?
And then I'm completely floored by this.
Might have to sit through damnable commercials but they're worth it.
Lastly, it seems some of you question the veracity of my profile, but I assure you I am true.
