After spending seven of the last eight years as a High School teacher (and recently retired college basketball coach) in Florida, I've decided to take a leap of faith and return home to CNY to be closer to family ....and to enjoy the outdoors/four seasons. While the what (job) still needs to be worked out (I can always sub), I have realized that the who (family) and where (CNY) are more important.
So thats the update, I switched my Ok profile to CNY when I came home for summer vacation ...but now that I've decided to stay I really would love to find that special someone.
So, about me...
I would describe myself as a "Passionate Explorer". I am inquisitive and love to discover new things and seek out new experiences--in both my personal and professional life.
Words to describe me: Genuine, Optimistic, Funny, Down to Earth, Caring, Upstate New Yorker, Dog-lover, Teacher, Coach, Honest, Easy-Going, Libra, Good Listener, Affectionate, Goofy (in a good way), Dependable, Passionate, Perceptive, Rambler....and the list goes on.
What I am looking for...
A woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go for it; a woman who likes her man to be a man but still able to show his emotions. Balance is important to her; she is a hard worker but doesn't let her job consume all of her energy or focus. She enjoys nice things, but is down to earth and not overly materialistic . She wants a man in her life, but doesn't need one. She knows that she and her man will be worth more together than apart. She enjoys the simple things in life but can also be spontaneous. She enjoys new experiences and likes to explore far-off places, as well as those close by. She likes the outdoors and nature but she also likes the hustle and bustle of a busy city. This balance and contrast is the essence of who she is. She is smart and loves dogs. She is both centered and content, but being with people she cares about is very important to her. She is kind and considerate, she is naturally caring with those who have earned her trust. She wants a man who understands her--one she doesn't need to tell what she wants, but who just knows. A man who can be the closest person to her, to help her make decisions, and to always be there and offer her strength when she needs it.
If you are interested let me know.
