I've been told that it says I "respond selectively". That is untrue. I try to respond to every thoughtful and meaningful message I receive. Unfortunately, I get a ton of "spam" in the form of : Hello . I love your profile (note, no details about what is actually in my profile that he loves). You have a beautiful smile (what woman doesn't love hearing this). I will (sic) like to get to know you. From this point there is an offer to chat - usually asking for my email and phone. They are usually from some other state. Usually we are a 10% match. They have a single (gorgeous) photo. Usually their accounts are deleted within 1-2 days.
Please note - the number of these I get makes it LOOK like I reply selectively. If you write something real and have taken the time to answer questions (which will hopefully give us more than 10% match), I'll answer. I will most likely not answer 1 line questions that say nothing about why you are writing. Now, on to my profile.
Help!!! I'm a mischievous 8 year old trapped in a curvy woman's body! I have a wonderful life. Lots of great friends, 2 fantastic grown girls, a job I love, a cozy home (mine). I'm fun, spontaneous, even tempered, excitable (I often define my mood as exuberant) and grounded. I've discovered that when i open my eyes and my heart to the universe, I'm granted the opportunity to learn new things all the time. I'm convinced that when the time is right, I will meet a wonderful man to share with me in this amazing life. One who doesn't need me, but wants me. It will be mutual. We don't complete each other; we compliment each other since we are both already complete. You feel proud and joyful to be with a competent, happy, independent woman who adores you.
To this partnership, I'll bring optimism, affection, appreciation, support, wisdom, mindfullness, thoughtfulness, love, passion, intimacy in all its forms (emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual), empathy, kindness, a healthy libido and lots of humor.
What I hope to receive from you is optimism, touch, a listening ear (that sometimes gives advice), acceptance, protection from the scary things in the world, support, love, openness and intimacy, presence, kindness, empathy and humor (please bring your libido too). You also are adventurous, wherever needed. You'll also help me clean my gutters once/year :-) We will always have each other's back, treat one another with respect and feel amazingly lucky to have found one another. If you love massage (giving and getting) - bonus points.
If we are able to bring the above to each other, I believe everything else will fall into place. We'll find the way to bridge our differences, our need for time/space and anything else that comes up.
I love sports, especially hiking and biking. Do you?
I value health and am committed to staying fit and healthy. I try hard to live mindfully and consciously treating people with empathy and compassion.
