That being said, and never-the-less, for both my amusement and yours. Analyze and interpret as you will;
I'm mainly here because I'm interested in new friendships. I have a lot to offer, and am quite valuable in terms of overall quality If you are someone who is looking for a unique, interesting, intelligent, fun, honest, witty, and warm person to experience at least portions of your life with. So, if you are single and strictly monogamous, don't write me off if you think we may click! Having standards of my own, naturally, I would also prefer intelligent, interesting, and at least relatively well adjusted people in my life.
I grew up in the Greater Boston area. I've traveled a lot. Most recently, I spent 3.5 years living in N. Yorkshire, England. I moved back to the States late February 2013. I haven't lived in New England for the greater part of the past 20 years. I consider myself to be a Floridian more than a local.
I'm generally a positive person with a healthy heart and a good attitude towards life. I'm very thoughtful of others, and probably more honest than most. Often I think that what I consider to be assertive, many perceive as too abrasive. I often think this could be a result of skepticism and a general misunderstanding of my drives and intentions. I'm generally not brash, at all, really... At least I don't think I am (I'll accept the possibility I could at times be kidding myself). I typically consider myself to be very patient and kind. It's not difficult for me to see the good in people . I find that practicing compassion and making thoughtful choices works well for me, and so does surrounding myself with people who usually make wise choices. During more challenging times I can be stoic and cynical, but my sarcastic sense of humor, perseverance, and neurotic tendencies do tend to get me through relatively unscathed.
I'm a force to be reckoned with when it comes to things that matter most to me, but I choose my battles carefully. I'm open and honest, but with discretion unless I urgently feel the need to be otherwise. I'm often the one who sits quietly, listening to you talk and making observations. It doesn't seem like I have much to say as I smile and ask a question at random, but I'm just thinking, really. After a while I open my mouth with a "crazy" thought or idea, it comes out of nowhere. You think to yourself "that actually makes perfect sense" ,or, "that just might work!" You're welcome! I'm a thinker, analyzer, and interpreter. This is a skill that I'm awesome at, it is not a weird personality flaw intended for the purpose of exhausting you, nor am I intentionally trying challenge your thinking capacity.
I have my battle wounds. I am better (never broken) because of them, and it would be great to meet someone with their own. I may very well be one of the strongest women you ever meet, and have a lot of great stories to share. I often get bored with those who I may consider to have lived a sheltered life and/or those who have become complacent. Kittens are awfully cute and all, but I'm not your kind of girl if you are looking for someone to embroider them onto our family tapestry. For your amusement;
And, I'd definitely say I much more resemble the former than the latter here :-) ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS37SNYjg8w
I know that by now you're probably wondering how I could possibly be more awesome (and humble, needless to say), so here you here you have it;
I'm a woman who is very much interested in living in a peaceful world, so I genuinely do my best to play my part in trying to make that happen. I actually really care about people, nature, and the planet, so I honestly do my best to make thoughtful choices. I'm a bit of an activist at times, and have been known to protest inequality in it's many forms and through several outlets. As of lately, most of my activism revolves around advocating peaceful and non-violent parenting. If you are someone who has ever said or believes "I was hit as a child and I turned out just fine".... Well no, no you didn't. I believe in "Being the change" I wish to see in the world, but by no means physically resemble Mahatma Gandhi. Simply put; I try my best to learn from and embrace my mistakes. I'm a very kind, optimistic, hopeful, and yet realistic person. Plus, I have just enough curves in all of the traditional and primitively aesthetically pleasing places .
