Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am grateful for every little thing.
I moved to Tacoma with my "open relationship" boyfriend. He will
never marry me and he doesn't care if I leave him because his jam
bands are more important than someone who has stood by him and
shown nothing but loyalty, honesty and actually waaaaayyyyy too
much patience. So now I'm here renewing my already quite cynical
idea that there might be someone out there who wouldn't mind having
a real friend. At the very least, a very passionate and animated
I am also looking forward to going on my dream date of sushi on a
sailboat on the sea at sunset. Ha! Shelly dreams of sushi on a
sailboat on the sea at sunset!
I am a very sensually passionate person who enjoys sharing touch
and intimacy in all facets of a deep and meaningful relationship.
Holding hands while walking together is nice....
Dancing is one of my biggest passions. Can you show me a new step?
Are you a good lead? Can you use a good follower?
I have a grown son who's the joy of my life but lives too far, and
an 10 year old Pug who still lives with me. My Pug is permanent in
my life, so if you don't like dogs I won't date you.
I want to be in love. I believe in love. I want a best friend and
partner in love. I want to laugh with my love, sing with my love,
dance with/for my love, cry with my love...take sunset beach
strolls, and take long hot bubble baths with my love.... cook great
food, drink yummy wine, make love divine... I want to share joy,
share sorrow, share pain, share tomorrow with my love... Wake up
with the sunrise to the lovin touch of my love....
I have tried the polyamory thing. I'm not being fulfilled by it. I
feel more confused emotionally, and feel more alone and empty than
I did before. Maybe it's just that I tried it with someone who
can't share their emotions verbally? I am open to learning more,
but it will take time to gain my trust. The more communication, the
more trust. I do believe there are people out there that know how
to, and WANT to help make someone feel connected, safe, and WANTED
emotionally, physically and mentally in a relationship. Want to
turn me on? Be GENUINELY interested in me as a person first. I know
I have great tits, and cute dimples. I would try to do me too, if I
met me in a coffee shop and we made eye contact and if I got a
smile. Still, guys, we really do want to be liked before we're
"loved"...most of us anyway. I absolutely guarantee it! hahaha! And
try not to use pretty words unless you mean it. I don't like to
hear insincerity in a compliment, or passionate words used in
passionate encounter. Don't tell me some line and think I haven't
heard it in a song long before I met you trying that on me. I been
singing the blues a long time, and I'm done with it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm recovering from double, total hip replacement
surgeries last summer. I'm also studying to add small animal
massage to my certifications in massage modalities. I want to
specialize in helping humans get closer with their pets to help
with preventive healthcare.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking, dancing, massage, survival, and helping people. Control and
surrender; getting people to feel comfortable with the gift of
healing touch; being a friend, being loyal, honest and loving. I'm
also good at communicating and expressing my feelings; listening to
other people's feelings; and talking about uncomfortable things
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cute dimples! Or my unique hair color/style. I'm not other
people, and I don't usually ask what they notice about me first, so
I can only go with what I see, and those are the first things I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading anything from Music Composition, Learning to Play
Piano, Bass or Singing books; to fiction like Laurell K. Hamilton,
Dean Koontz, Stephen Kings Dark Tower Series; all kinds of
metaphysical and spiritual books, cookbooks; books on sailing,
living aboard sailboats; books on how to best take care of my Pug,
and poetry. I don't watch a lot of TV because I'd rather play
music, dance or go to a music show. When I watch TV it's usually
John Stewart and The Corbert Report, a movie with LOTS of
explosions, scary events, comedy or thriller, or the music
channels. I love reggae, jazz, blues, bluegrass, some country from
the dust bowl era to about the 1970's. I also love funk, soul,
hiphop, and some rap. I sing a lot of jazz and some blues/rock.
Love and music are my religion.
*As far as food and drink go, I LOVE SUSHI!, Indian food, Asian
food of all kinds, GOOD Mexican, Italian, Greek, trying New cheeses
and just all around GOOD food lover. I appreciate a good Porter or
Stout beer, and a nice juicy glass of Red Wine very much. I also
love a good whiskey and brandy. Being back in Seattle for almost
three years, I've gained an appreciation for cocktails and happy
hour as well. Watch your girlfriends if I'm drinkin tequila...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Loving sensuality, healing touch, creative expression, Prissy the
Love Pug (I could live without her when she dies, but I'll miss
her!), music and air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I'm gonna get my sailboat. Whether or not there is actually
someone special out there for me. Why people emotionally manipulate
someone for their own pleasure even when they know it hurts the
other person. Why another human can watch someone they say they
care about suffer, yet help and reach out to humans who are
disrespectful to that person who is suffering. If there will ever
be world peace. The next time I get to have Sushi, go sailing,
dance, sing, laugh, cry, feel...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for the next opportunity to get on a sailboat, go dancing,
play music with friends or just chill.... There is, never has been
and never will be a typical anything for me.... I have accepted
that and am over it already...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a reincarnation of myself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to take me out for Sushi and Dirty Gin Martinis. You think
we could have some fun together, and be friends first. You want to
teach or learn with me how to make Sushi, be a better Sailor, Salsa
dance, make me laugh (I could use a good laugh), give me a massage
(strictly therapeutic), or you want a massage from me. You should
message me if you would like to get together and play music, write
songs together and encourage creative expression.
Also, if you rated me highly, message me because I am not going to
upgrade my account so I can contact you. I am here to look for
love, so if you are too, maybe taking a chance on messaging me
would be a good thing.
