My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm mainly here because I'm interested in new friendships. If you are someone who is single and strictly monogamous, don't write me off if we seem to click well or until we get to know one another. I prefer intelligent, interesting, and well adjusted people in my life. I'm new to the area, sort of. Honestly, my boyfriend knows I'm here. He knows I may arrange plans to go out (gender doesn't matter). We are open to exploration in other areas either as a couple or independently, that is so long as boundaries are respected and communication remain open and honest. That's how this is meant to work if there is to be any "dating". I'm not typically impulsive, and I believe all meaningful relationships begin with friendship. I make for a good one, and have proven myself to be thoughtful and resourceful. Something I'd have to show you by example.

That being said;

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, probably more honest than most, and generally 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 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 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, and I am better (never broken) because of them. I may very well be one of the strongest women you ever meet. It would be great to meet someone with their own. I often get bored with those who I may consider to have lived a sheltered life and/or those who have become complacent.

I'm a woman who is very much interested in living in a peaceful world, so I do my best to play my part in trying to make that happen. I care about people, nature, and the planet, so I 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. I believe in "Being the change" I wish to see in the world. I try my best to learn from and embrace my mistakes. I'm a very optimistic, hopeful, and yet realistic person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend a lot of time seizing the day at the moment and taking care of my health (*note* no std's and nothing communicable, just ask me and I'll tell you). Writing is a hobby, so is taking pictures, and I dabble in some painting as of recently. I can get a bit artsy at times in other ways as well, so I could be considered creative I suppose. Mainly, I enjoy writing.

Again, my transition from the UK back to the states has me in search of new friends, which is mostly why I'm here. I'm currently a stay at home mom though with relatively nerdy hobbies, for now. My work history typically revolves around Business and Marketing in the tourism and hospitality industries (think Orlando theme parks), but it wasn't where my passion lay. Former Business Management student at UCF; However; the plan for the not too distant future would be to finish up a degree in Biochemistry, Molecular, and Cellular Biology.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a decent cook. Fairly good writer. Amazing mother.. I'm really good at; thinking critically and outside the box. I'm articulate and highly skilled in communication. I'm very good at being attentive and observant. Making statements and being heard. Puzzles. Riddles. Making a difference. Being present. Facing challenges head on and with confidence. Not allowing my fears to control how I behave. Embracing life. Introspection. Usually, I'm also fairly good at living an example of kindness, compassion, love, and patience.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That depends on which direction you approach me from ;)

Actually, it's more likely my long red hair or glasses.

I've been told recently that I come off as very centered, as well as easy and fun to talk to. Also that I have really nice white teeth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- I mostly prefer non-fiction to say the least. I tend to find myself reading articles of various sorts, also medical journal entries, and research studies. Judge me all you want, I don't mind.

-My favorite movies are typically pretty bizarre and often indie or foreign. Gael Garcia Bernal is among my favorite actors. I love most of Kubriks movies. Alejandro Jodorowsky is a freak, and I love him for it..

-I barely ever watch TV (I'm not judging you). There are some shows that I like, but usually there is a lot more I'd rather be doing. That being said, I am a bit of a sucker for documentaries. It's been a while since I've been into any particular show though. Maybe you could recommend some good ones? I also enjoy a bit of NPR from time to time, and there are a few podcasts I enjoy listening to when I have the chance.

-Theatre is good. I love the arts, live shows and concerts are great. Museums could be considered shows, no?

-I'm a bit of a music junky with a particular fondness for folk, blues, delta blues, bluegrass, and 60'& 70's rock (oh yes, bring on the trivia night). Music is very much a mood thing for me, different genres for different activities too. I could talk a lot about it, my knowledge is pretty well-rounded. I also enjoy singing and do so when I'm happy. I'm not amazing, but I don't suck... I think. Best vocals in the shower of course.

- I'm pretty much a vegetarian, though I do still occasionally eat poultry. I hold no ill will towards the carnivorous, it's simply a personal choice.. I like Thai food a lot, and learned a bit about Indian cuisine in England. I enjoy cooking.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music. Laughter. Curiosity. Nature. Mistakes. Opportunities. (People are not things)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The best means of achieving the goals I set for myself. How bizarre it is that I have this extremely rare chance to be a part of life. New places I'd love to explore. The countless things I've yet to learn about. My desire to one day be able to pick up a guitar and play everything I've always wanted to. The garden I one day want to grow. How things work. The dynamics of interpersonal relationships. Life, the Universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are usually no more significant for me than any other day or night (I'm a mom). I am able to go out with friends or on date for an evening now and then, but that typically requires notice. Otherwise I like to read, create art of one kind or another, play games (words with friends, you will be ashamed), or watch movies during downtime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nearly every time I hear someone use the words "conversate" or "irregardless"; I see red, blackout, and then can't seem to recall why I suddenly have blood on my hands when I regain consciousness.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
*Important* If you skipped over most of my profile, you should probably read this part.

I'm looking for educated and intelligent human beings (this means friendship primarily) who know what they want out of life, and are actively doing the necessary things to make it happen. Someone who is motivated and shares many of the same core values as I. If you are a musician or music junky and want to talk anything, that's great too, I'm always up for a friendly conversation. If you like science, art, nature, animals, or traveling, we may have even more in common. If you know that relatively speaking, you know nothing. If you can appreciate that we are living on a tiny pale blue dot in a universe that is much larger than you can possibly imagine and you'd like to tell me what that means to you, I'd be interested in hearing that. If you have something to teach me, or want to learn things together. If you have some really good stories you'd like to share.

*Disclaimer* Yes, sex is somewhat important overall, but I'm not interested in rushing into anything that even remotely resembles casual or meaningless sex. Sex is great, just not my priority right now. Most healthy relationships begin as friendships (to varying degrees of course), and scientific research supports this.

Lastly, and most important; Perhaps you shouldn't message me if you have issues dating/befriending someone with children. My 2 cubs are pretty amazing. I talk to them and treat them with respect. They are great kids, both compassionate and intelligent. They are my pride and my everything, so if this is not OK with you, it would seem pointless to try and engage me.

Talking nearly anything science, music, or philosophy could be a good place to start with me.. Bonus points for nerdiness, "crazy" ideas, making me laugh, or a passion for things interestingly absurd or odd.

Also, I'm not always the best at introductions, so better if you start things off. Chances are I won't really have anything to say if there isn't at least some effort put into beginning a conversation. I don't typically reply to "Hi. How are you?". Or, if I do, it will likely only be to point this paragraph out to you. I'm looking for someone who cares enough to pay attention to detail. Those who don't seem to have that capacity are usually the first to get weeded out.

Also, "liking" me is not enough to let me know if you're interested. I'm not paying for that privilege if I'm not even certain I want to be here any longer. You'll need to write, or I probably won't know.
