My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The name is Ashley; I suppose I would describe myself as imaginative, genuine, and animated.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have my masters degree in art therapy and counselling. I am a registered art therapist and a license practicing counselor. I'm currently studying for my LCPC. I'm currently working doing mental health assessment and case managing for clients with developmental disabilities.

I like to think of myself as an active artist; though sometimes the stress of my job can keep me from completing art. I got my BA in photograph and graphic design, but lately have been doing more process mixed media art work. I am heavily engaged in participating in renisance faires. The main faire I attend is Bristol in Kenosha, however I go to some smaller faires in the area as well. I consider my costume making for renissance faires as a form of wearable art and performance. I absolutely love that I can embody my art and become an integrative performance piece with wonderful people of many backgrounds and personalities. This defiantly does not need to be something I expect my partner to be interested in, but it is something they need to respect it... It would also be nice if they came once as they may just enjoy it too.

I have my own home and life with my pet rat Penelope. Yeah, a pet rat. I would like to adopt a doggie soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being quirky...I don't know if that is a strength because it can be a weakness at times as well. I love my quirkiness though; it allows me to overcome high stress work situations, make others laugh, morph into fun persona, and make light of situations to ease others. Sometimes I forget the setting I'm in though and made goofy voices or animated expressions... :/

I am a highly empathetic person; one of the main reasons I went into counseling. I am able to really feel things for others. Which, is a blessing and a curse. I can, at times, take on too much for my clients (or friends)...but that I also what makes me work well with children and individuals who can't identify their feelings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I appear sensitive. I used to take that as a really negative way when people called me sensitive; but as I've gotten older and developed myself I realize the my ability to feel deeply for others, and for circumstances is a gift not all people have. I feel that my sensitivity to my surroundings really connects me to others and to myself.

I think people also notice that I am a helper. I want to be there for the people I care for; show them support, comfort, and affection. This does not mean I can be taken advantage of; I've grown within myself to notice that and will not accept it in my life.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The ideals and convictions I hold on how to be a positive person.
2) Expressive resources (art/ rene fair/ etc)
3) My Family (many are non biological. Good family friends)
4) Affection...Hugs...Kisses (giving and getting)
5) Phone (how pathetic, but true)
6) Laughs over silly things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stupid stuff...I get really bad anxiety sometimes...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on the Friday.

I often spend Friday as a night to stay in, relax, and reenergizing, but if there is a fun event going on, or an opportunity to spend time with friends or family, I am probably doing that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am hesitant to come back onto this site. I was on it for a long time and over the last year have not been very active in using this profile. I am currently debating if it is worth doing it again.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am looking for a real relationship; I am not looking for hook ups or some weekend fun. I am looking for someone I genuinely connect with. A person once told me that you need to be compatible with your partner in different ways: Emotionally, intellectually, and intimately. I'm still in search of someone who is a great fit for me.
I'm genuine and want someone who is the same. I'm looking for something to come naturally, start up a bit casual and progress from there. I'm just looking for someone I have that really great
chemistry with; I don't want things to feel forced.

I suppose if you are looking for the same thing...that would be a good place to start.
