According to Tosh.O, do not contact me if we are under an 85% match, but according to me, either T.O or OKCupid's algorithm is whacked.
You get brownie points for being an independent woman of the 21st Century who takes the initiative to write, so please say hello. If I rated you and/or added you as a favorite, I have every intention of saying hello if only there were enough hours in the day! I also try to real world and don't shotgun out hellos to random chicks.
In real life, all the good ones are taken and/or hard to find, so like most, I use OKC for what it is worth. The questions can be helpful, for me at least, so read my responses.
I am: multi-talented (but for musical instruments) – I can tile a floor, change my oil and do my taxes, and I cook, too! I’m gainfully employed in the same job for 7 years, rockin’ it in ’04, normally fairly reserved, resourceful, candid, considerate, kind, easily entertained and amused, protective, passionate, caring, handsome, high-strung/hyper-active (sometimes), emotional, decisive, pragmatic, intelligent, athletic, coordinated, very observant, mechanically inclined, not fully where I would like to be in life (a constant work in progress), willing to compromise on some things and not so much on others.
I am a: great listener and story teller, proud home owner, animal lover, solution provider, giver (not a taker), kayaker, athlete, photographer, good tipper, city boy that loves nature and appreciates the value of the country in the hustle of life.
I pick up trash while I walk my dog and turn off the shower while washing.
I love: generosity, artists, creativity, freaks, costumes, Halloween, Eeyore’s Birthday, Carnival, anything out of the ordinary or unusual, dark creatures, ink (although I do not have any ... yet) scaring the crap out of myself (skiing and my motorcycle usually do the trick ), Hummers (not the big cars, the other kind), the mountains, the ocean, nature, animals, kids (the younger, the better), politics, God (for putting fleas on Earth to remind everyone that the world is a cruel, harsh place – just ask my old dog who cannot scratch that itch anymore), water and rain, muscles and staying fit, good food, Hagen Daz Vanilla Swiss Almond Ice Cream, Ben & Jerry’s, great company, good conversation, a lively debate, change, questioning authority, music, and differences and different cultures.
I will: fight for what I believe in physically and mentally, defend you to the bitter end, provide constructive criticism, receive constructive criticism well, open doors for you, and surprise you with flowers.
I am not: a mooch, a taker, the jealous type (sometimes to a fault), possessive (people are not possessions), ambivalent, giving up my search for the one and only, settling for anything less than what I want and deserve, willing to compromise other things, gullible, overly compassionate to stupid humans or their plights, one for small-talk (unless you are really pretty on the plane, otherwise do not disturb me), so sure everything happens for a reason.
I hate: racism and rednecks, homophobes, greed, waste, litter, cigarette butts, rude behavior, inconsiderate, those that don’t let other merge into traffic, (most) republicans, judgmental folks, religious zealots, lazy and decadent people, trickle-down economics, Hummers (the big cars, not the other kind), drivers who do not use turn signals (I ride a motorcycle), and most material possessions.
I won’t: Lie, Steal or Cheat, talk behind your back, or leave the seat up. And I refuse to settle for anything.
I believe: we control our own fate and destiny, that more people in the world are good than are evil, that some people do not want to help themselves and cannot be reasoned with, that good things come to those that wait, and have patience.
