update: i have secured a stepping stone living circumstance in fairhaven and am beginning the 3000 mile journey this week. Adventuring a bit along the way. I will be in the area by Nov 1st.

no time to edit further.

If I got a date for every "like" I've gotten here on my profile I might have been rich and in love multiple times over. According to my stats I have hundreds of them. I'd prefer a real message vs a passive click of the star. Say hello for real. I am responsive.

Actively seeking to move west. Yes -- this is a dating site, and I am additionally seeking everyday connections for the Bellingham area. I am creating a new life circumstance, Can you help?

Fall 2015 - This particular profile was authored in 2012/2013. In the fall of 2013 I got involved with someone wonderful and we dated for 18 months. I moved in with him 4 months ago and he has since abruptly ended our relationship. Ouch.

I came back here to start over only to find the profile I thought i had deleted was still live. For now I think I am just going to leave most of it as is. I am still the same person, just a little heartbroken. well, maybe a lot heartbroken.

warning: i have a long profile. i encourage you to read it.

They say I am wonderfully smart, playful, creative, dynamic, sexy, oh and that I mix well (I like that one). They also say that my libido is vibrant. Others say that I am quirky, intense, passionate and attention seeking - all in a good way, of course!! My full, curvy and hirsute figure are specific attributes that appeal to a certain kind of man. I welcome that interest.

scientific american once wrote an article about the eccentricities of the creative mind: “I don’t feel like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. I feel like an octagonal peg with conical appendages.”

while my personal vocabulary is not that robust, the square peg in the round hole says it all

I came to OKCupid inspired by the fairy tale love story of two geeks. The bride and groom are now wed complete with wedding hashtag. She was someone i had just connected with re: social media. There was a huge cover story written about them in some geek magazine in Chicago. I hadn't heard the distinction of geeks in relationship to OKCupid, but something about the article resonated with me. I realized that many geeks are really drawn to me, and that I, in my own way, am equally geeky. While i find this place - this online dating place - really really deplorable at times, occasionally there is a redeeming outreach that acknowledges the geek and/or the romantic in all of us!! It's what keeps me here. I believe in happy endings. Do you?

I am seeking connection and involvement. To me, connection means spending quality time getting to know one another. I desire with every part of me involvement. I like that you have time for me and I value your vested interest. This means seeing each other on a regular basis vs something fleeting or one time.

Anyone can get laid - I am more substantial than that. I don't discount the need for physicality - at all - as a matter of fact, sex is very important to me. I consider sex an integral part of what makes a complete connection work.

What about you? What are you seeking?

A few things: If you are married, have an extreme fetish for hair, or are 20 something, you are NOT interesting to me at all. Please look elsewhere. Men who just want to "chat" may also look elsewhere. I feel chat is a passive communication. I again prefer something intentional. Lastly, if you have no images in your profile, consider uploading some before communicating with me. If you get to look at me, I should be able to look at you. If you speak text and abbreviate your communications - it has me think less of you. use your words. just saying.

re: married. this keeps coming up. i have married men as friends, even a few that have been lovers. i find that in a married/ lover circumstances I am often last in the equation. i try and keep myself open to a variety of experiences and to not take that "i am last thing" personally - yet, the truth is - being last sucks. A few select married men have tried to make it work. For me, a relationship with a married man has to look and feel a certain way. Empathetically - i think of all the unhappy married men and think they need to find their way too. i guess for the sake of conversation dating someone who is married falls into the it's complicated category.

I experience quite a bit of interest from a distance. Thank you. While that is great, it really doesn't move my current ideals forward. Long distance relationship takes patience and tenacity. The reality of long distance also means less time together. Unless someone is planning to fly in or drive in every weekend. My preference is to have you close by. If you are able to seriously manage or cultivate something long distance, let's talk about it. I am open, but please note that actually taking that on takes lots and LOTS of convincing. long distance to me = a commute over 30 minutes.

Do you consider yourself an intentional, attentive, and inquisitive man?? I ask, because those attributes are especially valuable to me...

in case you are not sure what I mean - let me tell you:

Intent: a strong desire to respectfully befriend and get to know me. I will return the intent. Note: a desire to just fuck doesn't count. a desire to meet and "we'll see" also doesn't count. while i get there has to be chemistry and all. the "we'll see" leaves me with a we'll see if she's worth the effort message. i am worth every ounce of effort. try me on.

Attentive: pay attention to me, understand my nuances, see what makes me tick, observe what makes me purr. Pay attention to how I pay attention to you, how I make you feel, how I turn you on. Be mindful to call, email, text, or what I refer to as common courtesy. ( seemingly a lost art and a deal breaker for me. ) Ask me when you can see me again. why? because I really like that ....

Inquisitive: I didn't come to this age without some life experiences to share, please be curious about what makes me who I am and who I continue to become... I assure you that I will have that very same curiosity about you. I like the people around me to have a sense of wonder. Don't you??

If you feel you can answer yes to the above. show me. I mean this - it's a test. not kidding. The above three things are a real barometer for me.

i am a mother of two young adults. they are adventurous, passionate, creative and unique, much like their mom. I raised them to be independent and to strive to be and do what they love. Parenting was that "something in my gut thing" that i trusted with every part of me. loved that. my in the trenches parenting chapter is behind me. I of course will always be a parent. Yet at this moment in time, i am wanting some attention for me. i know for many that family is very very important. I don't discount that. I am interested in the man of that equation. not the man and all that comes with him. Does that make sense? This he and I thing begins with him.

Full disclosure: I have genital herpes. Expressing this detail upfront moves a very difficult conversation forward from the start. I feel my role is to inform. Your role is to get yourself educated and decide what that means for you. Please don't ask me for Herpes 101 lessons. I am allergic to all condom protection. Barriers are not up for discussion either. The reaction to condoms is worse than an outbreak.

I know that stating this detail in my profile is pretty kerplunky. What I also know is that getting to know and like someone, only to tell them and then have that person run, is worse. Herpes does not make or break a person. It is very common, annoying and can mess with someone's head. It took me some time to be with my diagnosis. It took me a longer time to speak it. And it took me an even longer time to post about it openly in a place like this. It's been truly liberating to share about it.

Thank you to those of you who have acknowledged my candor. I wish more people were honest about tough conversations like STD's. I would be rich for all the comments I get that say they have herpes too and yet it's not listed in their profile. Imagine a world with honesty. When was the last time you were tested for STD's?

If you got to the bottom of all of this - wow - that's really cool - i realize it's a bit of a mouthful. thank you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking the next step. Moving West. As a matter of fact I don't live in Bellingham just yet. I will by the end of the year. If you would care to be a resource for me regarding Bellingham - I would welcome that. Ask me how you can help and I will let you know. I have owned and operated my own business for over 20 years. I feel there is a difference between those that have been an employee all of their working career verses what I do as an entrepreneur. I consider myself a self starter and resourceful. I have never been on automatic as far as my work goes, a day to day grind would stifle me. I do find myself tired of the work thing. Working was a part of divorcing, which was part of survival vs my ultimate goal in life. I more aptly imagined myself as someone's life partner - complimenting him, and expressing my creativity along the way. Still think this actually. I am aspiring to create a new work path as a creative. I described myself as an artist wanna be... recently "out of the closet" with my work. It's very exciting. Images shared here in my profile are all self taken. I dream of how to turn my creativity into a profession or a more meaningful work/life expression. These life changes would be especially great with a good man in my life. I am ready!! Perhaps you are seeking someone to compliment your life? Perhaps that someone could be me? Perhaps you seek someone to champion you or stand by your side...I'd welcome that!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

(cooking contributes to hearth and home - it's also a reason to have a lovely gathering, and it tastes good!!)
(i can't even begin to describe how much i adore kissing - it takes me to the moon and back and more. huge expression for me)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my eyes, my hair, my smile and my laugh...and my curves. oh and that i am a bit of a gabber. uh - can you tell?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In the realm of food. I LOVE to cook scratch and organically. Food to me is foreplay and orgasmic. Food seems to be a deal breaker for some. If you appreciate what I've describe, we'll do just fine. If you cook and love food as much as I, we'll do even better.

If you think Olive Garden is THE place to eat out, we won't get along. At all. Ordinary chain eating establishments do not work for me. To some this is a deal breaker.

I realize my food thing might be intimidating to some, I promise I am flexible about it. I just enjoy when someone shares this particular interest at the same level as I do.

My music tastes are eclectic. MANY favorite books, film, and shows. While I enjoy a DVD occasionally - I have not watched television since 1996. I DO NOT watch TV. This includes sports.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
sunshine, kisses, playfulness, intention, my camera and my lap top
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what's next either in my day to day or in my life. and sex - yes, I spend a lot of time thinking about sex. doesn't everybody?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
on a typical friday night I am making something fantastic in my kitchen. perhaps you'd like to make something fantastic with me.
