I'm usually somewhat shy or even awkward right out if the gate but its just a defense mechanism that disappears quite quickly as I get to know you. I'm very open and honest about myself, my past and my present even though I wish some of it wasn't my past or present ;). I expect the same of you, minus the nerdy/quiet part - that's not required but it's understandable and acceptable - lol.
I'm seeing lately a lot of paradoxes in my life that aren't me but ARE part of me. I'm very methodical but often scatter-brained. I'm very patient but often want things NOW. ;) I'm very opinionated but also accepting of contrary viewpoints. I think I NEED a lot things that are really just things I want that I hope will make me happy YET..... I know happiness is object-based and usually fleeting whereas peace and joy tend to stick but are a purely internal job.
I have a close relationship with a God of my own understanding - making me quite spiritual but not very religious at all. I'm more interested in what's really happening and what I'm/we're doing about it than what "should be happening" based upon something we read in a book one time.
I've been a very avid and active golf nut but over the past couple years mountain and road bicycling has been my passion. I typically ride 3 a 7x per week summer and winter.
It would be great if you have similar interests but MOST importantly - you need to be your own woman. If its my job or roll to complete you or fix you, I'm not your guy.
I've been divorced since 2005 and I have no kids but I dig 'em (i have a super cool dog too). It's totally cool if you do have children.
