I just got back from a road trip to AZ and UT, and I'm still in the recovery phase of returning home! I should be back to "normal" by next week!
I also go through phases of activity/inactivity on here. It just all depends on how busy I am, whether I'm in the dating mood, and how burned out I get from lackluster dates! I've been in Cville for around 7 months now, but I'm still learning about and exploring the area. I'm also looking to just meet new people in general, so even if we have no "spark" but it seems like we might have a blast going out for beers or whatever, then that's pretty great too.
So, what is my ideal guy like? Ideally, you're a nice, friendly guy who (in no particular order): tips well, returns shopping carts to their proper return location, likes animals, replies to texts and phone calls within a reasonable time frame... I don't know, most other things are negotiable! If you're someone who would enjoy renting an RV and taking a trip all around Montana, Wyoming etc, then that's a huge plus. :)
I'm a fun, caring person with a positive outlook on life. Personally, I think I'm pretty awesome, but I might be biased. In my core, I'm a care-taker; I tend to do lots for other people and have a hard time being the person they do things for. I think that the purpose of life is to be happy, so I make happiness a priority and try not to dwell on the negatives. When I do get upset about something, I tend to vent really passionately to someone (in this scenario, that would be you) for about 2 to 5 minutes, and then I'm done. You can just be empathetic and say, "Yes, that sucks..." until I am finished. Then, I am usually over it.
I'm an introverted extrovert, a sucker for kids and animals. I'm a novice photographer with aspirations of greatness. I hate blue cheese, black licorice, and olives. I'm outgoing and friendly, and I speak my mind; I'm also sensitive, which is something people don't expect me to be. I give killer back rubs and love getting them too. I'm extremely socially liberal. I'm a cuddler. I am kind of disorganized, so you might have to help me search for my car keys or my coffee cup from time to time. Ok, every day… I am terribly uncoordinated. Putting one foot in front of the other without tripping is really all I can hope for. I know there're all sorts of codes for guys to figure out what girls bodies are really like in online dating profiles, but they are beyond me. I don't know what average or curvy really mean, but I fall somewhere in that range, which means that if you're a boob guy then I might be your type! ;)
I have cats and a guinea pig. (The guinea pig is a long story!) I'd love to get a dog someday, once I have a house with a yard. So, if furry things make you sneeze, I'm probably not the gal for you.
