My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**update...my current job has a heavy travel schedule, so I'll get back to you if you message me or have done so. It will likely be delayed, and then, at that time, you can tell me that I was too slow and missed out on the most amazing woman.**

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”

- Bob Marley

I'm part confident, part shy, part active, and part chilled-out. I'm a walking contradiction, like most...guess it's part of the human condition. I really truly like people. I like learning what gets them excited and I love to make people laugh. I lived in Europe for awhile. I speak a bit of German, un poco Español, and fumble constantly with my native English. I like traveling to new lands when I can afford it, love to swim in the ocean and lakes, and prefer a trail over a treadmill any day. Exercise and eating healthy are a regular part of my life. I try to have fun with whatever I'm doing and to appreciate the little things. I want to relax, discover, learn, dream and laugh. I'm not into self-righteous, overly-clever people who lack compassion. I like charm and wit, both subtle and broad.

I've lived abroad, been married, and came out the other side with better self awareness and a passion for personal growth. Not so shy these days, but when I'm tired, I'm quiet.

I can't remember a joke for the life of me, but can be pretty witty with the flow of conversation.

I've realized I'm pretty good at going into solution mode, as opposed to panic mode, when the shit hits the fan. Even better these days on not letting shit get to the fan.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open, kind, and can laugh at yourself, and at, with, near, and around me. You prefer to laugh and learn from mistakes in life rather than dwell. I don't necessarily need to meet someone with the same interests as myself, but we should definitely spark one another's curiousity.

Note: I know I'm on the shorter side and I tend to date those near and shorter. I've dated much taller women and some have gone well and others not. It sometimes had to do with our height difference in one of our heads or bodies. Most of the time it was because we weren't right for one another. I don't care what we look like walking down the street to others. If it's right, then let's enjoy it.
