I believe in a higher power, but not the Bible. I believe that if we are judged when we die, it will have much more to do with how we treated each other and the planet than who we slept with or what we ate on Friday. I honestly don't care what you believe (I mean that in the nice way, not the snarky one) as long as you don't try to change me...and I won't try to change you
I think that as long as you effectively communicate your relationship needs and personal boundaries, you should be able to trust your partner(s) to treat you right without making a lot of rules and restrictions...and if you can't trust them to treat you right, perhaps you're with the wrong partner. I have no interest in controlling anyone (unless we're talking about the fun and consensual kind) or being controlled. I don't believe in double standards - ganders and geese have total equality in my universe.
I really belong on the West coast, but won't make it there for at least a few more years, probably to the Bellingham, WA area. I would love to live in an intentional community or household of several adults (and their kids if any) helping each other through life, working together to make life better instead of in competition with each other.
I love the outdoors and adventure, having raised 3 children alone for 20 year's. With the exception of the youngest whom I lost 3 years ago, they are now very open minded and responsible young men, good citizens, and I'm very proud of them. While I am OK being alone, it is often more fun to have a partner in crime and I think we all dream of growing old with somebody. Now that my children are gone, and nursing school is finished, I often find myself with more free time than I know what to do with
If you see me repeatedly stalking your page, I'm probably looking you up on my phone and plan to say something eventually when i'm on a computer....or I didn't recognize the thumbnail on my phone until I clicked it.
I love new experiences, whether we are talking traveling or other and I am thoroughly enjoying my 2nd childhood as I embark on my 2nd career. I am very versatile and enjoy Free Hugs (look it up on Youtube) as much as welding.
We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.
