Hi, my name is Kris and I have been told that I am a bit abrasive on more than one occasion. I am experienced, zany, and spontaneous. I have a great job that I love and am comfortable in my own skin. I do not have a partner but I would like to meet someone. Maybe here, maybe elsewhere. We’ll see... I like all kinds of music except hip hop, fat girl music, most rap, elevator music/grocery store rock. I have 3 kids who have lives of their own. Don’t get me wrong, I love them all very much, I just happen to have a life of my own, as well. I have a Master’s in Business and I like to read. I watch a lot of TV, mostly educational stuff but I have a weakness for Pawn Stars and mindless sitcoms. I sit in front of 2 monitors all day long at work so when I am not at work, I am not on the PC. I, also, am not P.C. I enjoy movies of all types: Foreign, Documentary, Comedy, Westerns, and Mysteries. I do not watch horror flicks. The world can be scary enough at times without adding the anxiety of Hollywood. I enjoy fishing, kayaking, photography, long drives, quiet nights on the couch. I don’t drink or use drugs. I have been sober a little over 13 years and have all of the things that go along with that.
Have kids or not. You either drink socially or not at all and don't use recreational drugs. You are intelligent enough to carry on a conversation for more than five minutes and on more than one topic. You can read, write, and spell. You know when to use to, two, too and your/you’re as well as there, their, and they’re. You are looking for a monogamous relationship. You know what a monogamous relationship is. You are kind, patient, loving, and tolerant. You know peace and are as comfortable alone as you are with a companion. You are a female human being between the ages of 30 and 45. You are shorter than 5’10” and are thin. Call me shallow.
My philosophy and a little more...
It has been said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I believe, as a student in life, that this statement is, for the most part, true. I have also been referred to as the class clown on more than one occasion. That was a long time ago, though, and I think that I have changed, some. I still do not manage my time as wisely as some think I should. I do not always play well with others, and, I probably could be doing much better if I applied myself...
I am selective in my endeavours. I have a few charitable causes I work for which consume a lot of my free time. I find them to be more healthy habits than chasing skirts. I leave those activities to those who are better suited for it; those who are younger, better looking, and more energetic than I am. I am by no means worn out, I just do not burn energy foolishly as I once did.
I enjoy the company of almost everyone I meet. Since birds of a feather flock together, I don't encounter too many people who would be deemed as questionable as far as character goes. A few that have slipped thru the cracks have been quickly flushed out and then down. I also enjoy watching people in their environments but do not slow down on the freeway to gawk at accidents or police who may be writing tickets. Generally, I frown upon those who get enjoyment from others' misfortunes. I try to stay focused on the task at hand, keep my eyes on the prize, and my hands to myself (when appropriate). To the best of my knowledge I have never been referred to as "shady", although, I like the term for someone who really is shady.
Some people say, the glass is half full. Others' say that the glass is half empty... I say to hell with those people, they just cannot see that the glass is, clearly, twice as big as it needs to be.
I think positively, most of the time. I try to look and feel my best, most of the time. I treat those around me with kindness, love, patience, and tolerance, most of the time. I am, however, just a lowly mortal and I do drop the ball, occasionally. Okay, frequently... When that happens, I am quick to admit my mistake, as soon as I realize that I have made one, and try to right any wrongs immediately.
I am far from perfect. I do not drink for reasons I may share with you after I know you. That being said, I will leave our fate in your capable hands.
Thanks for your time. I will see you in the funnies!
