Our rules are pretty basic - you be honest with us and we'll be honest with you; and my husband reserves the right to meet any new people first and has veto power (no questions asked!). If you're not OK with that, just move on. Also, if you're married/otherwise partnered (and they're not on here as well), I do insist on confirming with them that everything's kosher; I don't condone cheating.
Life is pretty busy these days, with three kids and full time jobs and dog and a new kitty cat. When we do have free time, we like to hang out with friends and family in low-key get-togethers. Sitting around a fire with an adult beverage in hand, BSing and laughing our heads off is always good. When the weather doesn't cooperate, we like board games, movies, and trivia. Camping and associated activities (such as drinking around a fire and canoeing) are thoroughly enjoyed when we can get a sitter for the weekend, which is very rare.
I have ADHD, so watching movies can be a chore, but I like outrageously funny stuff that doesn't require deep thoughts to enjoy. My husband and I met at a Rocky Horror Picture Show cast party, and used to be Brad and Janet together, while we were engaged in real life. Is that cute or what?? Movies I like: Wedding Crashers, The Hangover, Anchorman, Something About Mary, any Monty Python movie, Harry Potter, and we LOVED "This is 40".
I'm a fan of funny and light-hearted shows - Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, Doctor Who, 30 Rock, and Mythubusters are in heavy rotation at our house. We have binged watched both seasons of Orange is the New Black (almost time for season 3!) and are enjoying Unbreakable Kimmy Schmit. And what suburban mom doesn't love house porn shows? Rehab Addict, Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, and we can't wait for more Two Chicks and a Hammer.
Dave Matthews Band is an old favorite of mine. We try to go every summer, but things like having babies and going to the Police reunion tour get in the way some times. Some artists I like off the top of my head: Sting, The Police, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Grateful Dead, Beatles, Harry Connick Jr., James Taylor, Metallica (old stuff, please), Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Santana, The Doors, Eric Clapton, Michael Buble, Adele, Katy Perry, No Doubt, Jimi Hendrix, Lily Allen, and that one Eminem song from the movie "8 Mile". I gotta jam to that one! I was recently introduced to Mumford and Sons by a coworker, and now I'm hooked. It's one of my favorite Pandora stations.
Food-wise, I'm pretty open to most cuisines. However, I do NOT like fish (yes this includes sushi!), mushrooms, raw onions, or super spicy food. Mexican, Thai, Italian, Greek, Japanese (yes there is Japanese food that's cooked), Cajun/Creole a la Yats, good ol' Midwestern comfort food ... so long as it's got good flavor and none of the above ingredients, I'm game. I'm interested in trying new cuisines, so if you know of a great ethnic place, let me know and I might be interested.
My glasses, (without them I am blind as a bat)
Our fantastic 46" LCD Hi-def smart TV
Fresh cold water to drink (nothing is more refreshing)
My memory foam mattress pillow (I take it with me if I have to stay overnight somewhere)
And laughter (not just a giggle or a chuckle, but the overwhelming belly laugh with tears running down your face that leaves you breathless and then comes back again until you're worn out)
I don't generally reply to anyone who's less than a 70% match (previous history) or has spelling / grammar errors on their profile, and will not reply to "hey i think ur hot r u dtf?" Does that shit EVER work?! And you need to have some sort of profile filled out ... give me something to go off of.
And please be local. I don't have time to drive an hour to see / meet people.
