My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My most important personal tenet - always stop for lemonade stands. If you ask kids what they plan to do with their money, 99% of the time the answer is "Um. Save it."

I think it is incredibly amusing that "active" and "laid back" are used synonymously on this site.

I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, and camping. But I don't own any fancy sticks or jerseys, I bring my friend the Noodle along when dog-paddling long distances, and setting up the tent? Will you please do it while I do something else? So I am probably not considered a real "er" or "ist" of any of these things. But I like them and I do them.

I think the most important thing in life is how you treat other people. The second most important should be how we treat the Earth. I don’t think perceived futility should be an excuse for inaction.

Maybe someday I'll get more pictures up, since I know y'all are visual creatures, but this is pretty much my body type... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bq_0LlrCYAEnvlO.png:large

If I could summon an ancient-psychic-tandem-war-elephant my life would be pretty close to perfection.

My Thoughts on Dating/Relationships:

I really dislike online dating. It's like applying for jobs online, but with the added pressure of being judged on whether you are hot or not. I would much prefer meeting people in person, but that does not seem possible in today’s age - no man will ever ask me to the cinema after he “accidentally” brushes my hand while we reach for the same potato in the produce section – so here we are again.

I am on this site to meet men for romantical purposes. I do not want an instant relationship after one date. I have recently realized I need more male friends, so if we meet and end up “just” being friends, that’s totally cool. My ultimate goal is to experience meaningful connection, even if it lasts for just one date.

I am not on the fast-track to marriage. I probably want to be married someday, but it isn’t something I can picture in the near future. However, this doesn’t mean I am seeking men who are totes-commitment-phobes, yo.

Some things about me that might be deal-breakers for you:

1. I don’t live in Minneapolis; I actually live in Stillwater

- I put Minneapolis because I get much better/more matches. I have a car, which I drive, and I have no problem with coming to the cities often. I prefer activities in the cities anyway (museums, shows, galleries, etc)

2. I live with my Mom

- In my current life, saving $500-$800+ every month on rent to spend on travel, save for retirement, go on fun dates with you, or buy delicious Trader Joe’s almonds makes too much sense. Besides, my Mom’s cool. And my work/business is located in Stillwater.

3. I like to travel

- I just returned from a 4-week road-trip out West -South Dakota, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana. I foresee a California or Eastern trip in the near future. Someday, I want to go to New Zealand. I am looking for a travel-buddy. Cool Guys, please apply.

My deal-breaker:

I’m not against smoking pot, (I usually don’t because it makes me feel really sick) but if you smoke every single day to get by -are addicted- it’s not a lifestyle I am comfortable with. Same goes for alcohol.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a horticulturalist. Horticulture is different from botany. I didn't attend a fictional wizarding school, so no, I am not an "herbologist". I do realize growing pot would be a very lucrative career move, and yes I could do it, but I'm not planning on it.

My friend and I own our own gardening business, which is going great. We do the small jobs that bigger landscaping companies wouldn't be interested in (landscaping and gardening are not necessarily the same) - everything from weeding old ladies gardens to completely redoing/redesigning an existing property.

I love what we do, but I have always wanted to be a horticulturalist at a public garden - think the Como Conservatory or the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. But, I don't really like either of those organizations, and since they are MN's only large public gardens... ... leads to a problem in my life that I am trying to figure out (re: traveling).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Choosing/making gifts for people. Paying attention. Remembering. Procrastinating. Baking. Making a mess in the kitchen. Eavesdropping. Talking to kids. Growing plants from seed.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very short. 4'9" is certainly not an understatement (I'm actually 4' 9.25" And yes, ever quarter inch counts.)

In case you were wondering, I am not a "little person" (aka dwarf) - just a short girl by normal genetics. My mom's 4'10" and my dad's about 5'9".

I am always confused/amused when people ask me "So, what's it like to be short? What challenges have you faced?" - as if I am handicapped. Um, sometimes I can't reach things??? This is my normal body and I'm used to it. I don't feel small (except when I hug a tall friend, or need to climb Mt. Grocerystoreshelf to reach the delicious summit of Reese's Puffs).

If a genie popped up and offered me an extra 6 inches I wouldn't turn him down, (that's what she said) but I generally like myself and don't have a problem with my height.

I will say this - If you need to point out how short I am (in a message or in real life, even if it is a pseudo-compliment) we are not a good match. I was not created for your amusement. I don't know if very tall people experience this too, but hey guess what, I know I'm short. It didn't happen yesterday.

I am an equal opportunity dater when it comes to height and size; just because I'm small doesn't mean my counterpart has to be. (As long as you 6' 4'' gentlemen don't mind a lady hoisting herself into your arms on occasion, or getting comfortable in your lap.)

The six things I could never do without

Trying to keep my energy up after the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only admit private things If you ask me about them. If you don't have the "howboutyou?" gene, we are not a good match. *This is very important.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Must Haves

1. You treat everyone you meet with not only respect, but kindness, appreciation, and interest.

2. You are funny. You make other people laugh, you make yourself laugh (these do not have to be mutually exclusive : )

3. You "believe" in dinosaurs. You recycle. Your life's ultimate focus is not your religion/You are not militantly or obstinately atheist (You don't devote your life to the belief that you are right). You don't think being gay means being wrong.

4. You are not addicted to social media. You do not need to post everything that happens to you to make your life legitimate, real, or special.

5. You like sex. You are confident. You are an initiator. You are aggressive. You don't expect or let her do all the work. Giving her pleasure is pleasurable for you. (PLEASE DO NOT message me with “of course I like sex – I’m a guy!” There are plenty of men who cannot be described as above.)

Bonus Points

- You enjoy cooking/cooking for other people
- You are the outdoors-hiker-backpacker-adventurer type
- You are "handy" - the woodworking-building-painting-fixing-creating-making-do it yourself type
- You can teach me something new
- You give a good massage
- You have facial hair
