I'm married to a wonderful man (AverageJoe33), I'm bi. We firmly believe that a person is capable of having feelings for more than one person. We practice that lifestyle, with caution, and have had few problems. Our secret is communication. We tell each other everything. I think communication is important... no... necessary, for any relationship to work. Coupled with complete, and some times brutal, honesty, we have become the strongest, happiest, healthiest couple I've ever known.
I want someone with whom I share common interests. I have three kids, so you must like children. I also have 3 cats and a very intrusive dog, so you must like animals, as well. I play video games, watch movies, go on nerdy adventures, read a lot, cuddle a lot, play with the kids, am an avid runner, am an exercise junkie, am a coffee addict, collect weird shit, love thrift shopping, love DIY, am a cheapskate, and so many other things that I love to share. Ideally, you are relatively close to my age range, NOT lazy, take care of yourself, have ambition and share some of these interests. What you look like isn't as important as your personality. I know, you're calling bullshit. That's fine. I won't lie, I DO care how you look. I just have the opinion that everyone's looks will fade and you have to eventually have a conversation. So, I want someone I can connect with as well as someone who can make my girl parts all a-twitter.
**Note that you DO NOT have to be with both of us. We date separately. Many people assume that because I'm married and bi and poly that we're looking for that illusive "unicorn." Not true. We are, of course, open to dating the same person. But it's certainly NOT a requirement. It's not a package deal.**
About me...I am a mental health professional, physically active, a mom, a lover of coffee and live music, educated, slightly less than romantic but I make up for it with my die-hard friendship. I'm brutally honest, excitable, fun, have an amazing work ethic, and am not at all shy. I can make anyone comfortable. My mother tells me I know no strangers. It's true, I'm comfortable in a room full of strangers and I'll leave with friends. I talk a lot, and fast, to anyone who will listen. I love people! I love making people laugh. Now, most people stop here, sharing only the most awesome things about themselves. I won't insult you with false images. I have plenty of flaws. I like perfection, I get bitchy if I'm going to be late (ask my husband, he is routinely 15 minute behind), I smell AWFUL when I sweat, I do not procrastination and will get snippy if I see it. I have a habit of cutting people off mid-sentence. It's not because I want to be rude. I'm so excited about my thought I don't want to lose it. I am slightly compulsive and annoying with my fitness thing.
UPDATE 8/1/12 - I (we've) been seeing someone (Sola25Kandi).
I'm not really looking for any romantic relationships right now. Friends are fine, though. We'll see what happens!
