I work like crazy because I love my job so much sometimes it doesn't feel like work.
not a traditional American female. couldn't care less about my shoes as long as i'm comfortable, or makeup, (except lipstick). i don't have time to work hard on what I look like. i pay attention but don't obsess. i DO work hard to stay healthy through my diet and physical activity. workout regularly and love every second of it. i quit smoking a few months ago and am doing great but i really don't want to hang out with smokers for a while, sorry.
do tai chi regularly as moving meditation since my body doesn't like the lotus position and my mind has a lot of difficulty being empty. just had back surgery in November so I'm getting back to normal over the next few months. the tai chi is great for my recovery.
beer over wine but am comfortable with either. LOVE to play pool and am very good when given the time to play. haven't had that for many years but still have the skills, just not a consistent game.
i get along with just about anyone and everyone and have always had a really diverse group of friends; diverse in interest, lifestyle, nationality, etc. can be kind of quiet until I get to know you but am more introverted than shy. also keep a close circle of friends who would never describe me as shy. i'm an eternal optimist and try not to spend too much time, if any, with people who act like "Debbie Downer." we're here to live, not complain. get over it!
a few guys have asked why I'm on here since it "should be easy for me to find a date" and well, I'm not looking for easy. don't get out much and I don't like guys trying to pick me up in bars. Thank you for the compliment but raising two teenagers takes most of my time and taking care of myself takes a lot of it too, so "looking for" a man has been low priority for a long time.
Meeting new people would be awesome and I'm hoping okcupid can help with that. as far as a relationship; taking it slow because I don't have time for anything more. I don't go out on week nights because it disrupts my balance in health mentioned above.
guys who take care of their health are incredibly sexy, especially the ones who are humble about it. I'm not talking about posting pics of your six-pack and telling me how much you can bench. i mean taking care of the inside and out.
I'm between 5'9" and 5' 10" and really prefer men taller than me ... but I'll keep an open mind if there is a true connection.
