recovering Californian. 9 years clean with mild relapses around the

trips. Crabbing. Boating. Park days. Frisbee. Bocce. Fishing.

I am a bit more on the homebody side, than on the party girl side.
I don't need to go out every Friday/Saturday nights. Although, I do
spend Sundays at the bar watching football. If you go out to
bars/clubs all the time, we probably are not a match. Just
I love watching sports but I don't really play. I am a huge Raiders
and Timbers fan.
In a perfect world, I'd soon meet someone I could spend many
years-the rest of my life with. If that happens on here, great. If
not, I will be happy to have met new, fun people who enjoy the same
things as I do. But ultimately I am looking for something long
the same name**

Googling stuff. Not littering. Eating all the browines. Remembering
my dreams. Wearing sunglasses all year round. Not remembering
really funny jokes I have been told. Making not very good

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I could be at, or watching a sporting event.
I could be at a beer theater.
I could be playing board/card/backyard games with friends.
I could be out camping, kayaking or fishing.
I could be out dancing to a fun band or at some dive bar drinking
I could be hanging out at home, watching a movie, hanging in my
backyard, reading, or having a solo dance party.
Hanging out at home is probably the most likely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't like pie.
I use an umbrella. (blasphemy, I know!)
