My focus and energy is directed towards creating the conditons for things to thrive.
I am an avid motorcyclist, BUT NOT A "BIKER".
I have ridden in a few countries, and I'm pretty picky about who I ride with. To ride with me, you must be helmeted, sensibly attired, and not ride an obnoxious, loud Harley.
I have zero interest in large group rides or Harley style poker runs, Goldwings, or big fat baggers. If you are a rider, I'd love to go on trips where we discover new places together. I am self employed and work a lot, but this affords me a certain amount of freedom if I plan ahead.
My ideal man would be part McGiver, part mechanic, part explorer. They might have a stable of bikes, dirt bikes, vintage models, touring, and dual sport models. Maybe there is a musical instument lashed to the back, but there is certainly a cookstove in the dry bag. C'mon, you know who your are. You've been on the road a long time by yourself or with a wingman, and now you are ready for a female companion who's presence brings comfort to your campsite.
I favor those with genuine intellectual curiosity, and critical thinking skills. I think I could be just as excited about a bicycle trip as a motorcycle trip. I love to move through the landscape any which way.
I am all about having life be a quality experience. Hopefully you share my discriminating palate by rejecting fast food, and you consistantly choose the quality option, whether its a meal,a bike, or a pair of shoes.
The truth is, I am a bit of an introvert. While I am lively in conversation, some part of me keeps me from being fully engaged in crowds.
I have always felt myself to be on the outside of everything, looking in. I am not one for loud self promotion, and I suppose you could say I am a bit reticent in some social situations.
I want to focus my attention on one individual, and create a history of memories that could only have occured with the combination of the two of us.
You are trustworthy and your words and actions are consistent.
I like creative people, who are motivated, disciplined, and do their work whatever it is, with integrity and pride.
Btw, I am not much of a "believer", and have little interest in GOD or organized religion. If I see mention of religion in your profile, you probably will not be hearing from me. I dont just believe religion is the opiate of the masses, I believe it causes more woe than benefit to mankind overall.
That doesnt mean I am amoral or immoral, it simply means that my sense of right and wrong is not dictated by conventional norms.
Update: recently I have come to the conclusion that I am not the city girl I thought I was. Living in the city has left me feeling vulnerable and exposed. I am looking for a new home, beyond the city, beyond the suburbs.
I find I need some open space and nature around me. I like putting out birdfeeders in the winter and seeing who comes to visit. Being able to experience the fullness of the seasons is a priority.
I don't know why this is such a simple thrill, but it is.
I don't like hearing traffic at night, and I'd rather feel isolated than put upon. So much for my recent foray into urban living.
