My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome to my short essay. Feast your eyes, and send me a message if ya like it!

In a nutshell, I'm someone you want on your team. Any kind of team on any occasion. Even if I am failing miserably it would at least be entertaining. Board games or board meetings, I can mind shift like that.

I find my own happiness in just about anything I am experiencing, including things that are unpleasant. Take for example the raccoon that just ate one of my chickens and severely wounded another, sad situation I agree, but now I get to use this crossbow! See, silver lining! [ This happened a few weeks ago, no raccoons have been murdered. Raccoon 1.5 ; me 0 ]

Here is a list of positive attributes I possess: charisma, charm, cuteness, intelligence, fascination, and probably one of the most reasonable people you could ever meet. Don't take my word for it though, you can find out for yourself.

For those of you who care, ENFP. I have no idea what that means or what you would do with it, but there you go.

I'm perfect-

Ok, fine! It's not true! but I have a lot of great things to offer. I'm told I have "the look" that makes hearts flip upside down, I've never seen it myself, but thats the word on the street. I can change a tire, take out the trash, balance the books, feel bad ass when I use power tools, cook, clean, garden, study, go to work, be a mom, be silly or sophisticated whichever the moment requires, look cutebeautiful&sexy all at once. I have other talents but why pull out all my tricks now? (Ok just one thing -Foot rub skills)

I drop the 't' sound with some words ending in t. More like a glottal stop but definitely no distinct 't'

Words like:
out
don't won't can't shouldn't etc.
boat
tart and all words which rhyme with it

However words that end in 'st' get the t sound: most, toast

Could be a deal breaker.

I'm 5'9 barefoot so if you're tall you won't break your back trying to kiss me, that has to be worth something.

I'm totally kidding about being a retired millionaire.

I'm actually a bazillionaire!

I love life -- and laughing out loud, and camping and hiking and photography and art and food and dancing, and having a good time, you know, all those things that make me a complete Portland automaton. Yes I said it!

Did someone just say organic beer and live band in one sentence? Like OMG! I totally love that!

I'm just like everyone else here in the PNW, unless you really think these are unique qualities…. then I'm super awesome!

Just sayin'.

If we are a good match my personality will come out like sunshine in summer. I have a lot of interests and conversation can be about almost anything.

My energy level, I have found, is really dependent on how I feel about whom I am with and how we play together. Maybe it is a fault of mine that my spirit matches that of the person I am spending time with. Some people bring out the best in me just by being themselves and others have snuffed out my flame. I don't have time in life for people like the latter anymore and I won't try to make it work anymore either. I am a happy, silly, friendly person looking for the same.

I've had one darn interesting life, I'm not kidding and I am grateful for all of it, the good the bad and the ugly. Really, and I love to share the stories just not with everyone.

Show me what you love, talk to me/teach me what you know, take me with you. I have an endless sense of wonder and amazement.

I am typically a serial dater. Dating many people at once makes me feel a little uncomfortable, especially if I have a preference for one, it feels unfair. This dating thing is a balancing act and I really am not fond of it. Hearts are bound to rejoice and be broken, including my own.

What the heck is this Oxford comma I keep reading about, and why is it so special? Explanations?

Best answer so far:
Ma'am,
An Oxford comma is a device for starting discussions, arguments, and once, back in 1978, an actual knife fight in a phone booth (no one died) between people who refuse to accept the concept of "first world problems."
I copied that from Merriam-Webster. Troof.
Informatively Yours,
Daniel R. Smith
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, in my last year of college at Eastern Oregon University. Bachelors degree in Business Administration. Finding cool hikes and camping and rocks not too far out from the Portland Area. Loving documentaries, and books that make me go hmmmm. Ready to mingle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
*Being a mom
*Everything I put my mind to.
*being sweet and silly
*being an iron fist in a velvet glove
*laughing
*laughing at myself
*referencing google and wikipedia
*conversing
*learning new things
*defeating ninjas
*hugs, snuggles and kisses
*looking at rocks, trees and rivers while walking on uneven terrain.
*drinking coffee
*wanting to talk about cool things you've learned or I've learned or want to learn together.
*making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
*saying "I don't know, what do you want to do?" because a Libra with a choice becomes a battle between pros and cons, good and evil, life and death. It is exhausting. You should see me pick out a candy bar. That would go under the 'I'm really bad at' section.
*Saving the Planet. You're still here aren't you?
* making people feel special and important.

Do you really care? Isn't this profile already boring the crap out of you?

I love my vagina so much!

Just seeing if you're awake!

Now that I have your full attention again, let's proceed shall we?

I love a lot of books, mostly non fiction. Too many to begin to list. I have loved some fantasy sci fi authors like Mercedes Lackey, Eddings, Anne McCaffery, I also liked Anne Rice and CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, Diana Gabaldon.

I'm not a movie buff but there are some that always stand out like The Princess Bride, Goonies, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Game, Harry Potter (don't hate), The Secret, Of mice and Men, In the Name of the Father, Moulin Rouge, Kundun. The most recent movies I watched were Maleficent and Lincoln.

If I had a TV that wasn't in my attic and cable I'd geek out on all the nerd programs like The discovery channel, and history channel, and Forensics stuff.

Pretty eclectic music taste, not into gangsta rap, but I like some hip hop, bluegrass and just about anything with a rockin' banjo.If you can combine hip hop and a rockin' banjo you might be onto something! I like folk, indie, flamenco, instrumentals, ambient, classical. I like rock, classic rock, alternative rock, I like 80's, pop, dance, TRANCE and just about anything that doesn't sound like crap. My favorite radio station is 94.7.

Food, I'm not a vegetarian anymore but still don't go heavy on the meat. I love mediterranean, middle eastern, indian, chinese, japanese, italian, french, American, German foods. Maybe it's better for me to list what I don't like: dried out lima beans, garbonzo beans that aren't made into hummus, raw onions and I think that does it for me. If I think of more later I'll add it.

So there you have it. Psychoanalysis may begin.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
*My 9 year old son- is sweet, smart, funny and a real joy to be around. I really hit the kid lottery when I had him.
*My car- between being a student and a mom my life would be infinitely more difficult without one.
*Friends/good times- self explanatory.
*Self respect- now that I know what it is. This is not to say that making a fool of myself is beneath me, I do that just fine, I just don't try so hard to get other people's approval anymore.
*Music.
*Freedom to be me and however I need to express that. I have never been arrested so just know being me doesn't violate others being themselves.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am home with my son and family but my parenting time is changing soon as my ex is taking our son 3 weekends a month for a while. This means I have more freedom to date and so that's what I'm fixing to do. I am really ready to meet someone special now.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm looking for someone on dating sites…. everything else is relative to how close we get.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is where I might come off strong… but I am, so no surprises.

There has to be a certain level of intelligence. You can be the hottest guy on the block but if you can't turn my mind on the body is not following. I'm not talking geniuses or completely cerebral people here. I need inter & intra personal intelligence, and emotional intelligence just to name a few.

Everyone loves someone who can make them laugh, I am no different.

I appreciate all of the messages I get and I am really flattered most of the time. If I don't respond, it is just my way of saying thank you but I don't think we can go further.
