My brain is fiscally conservative but my heart is liberal. I believe in REI, Trader Joes and recycling. I love living in the country and the vibe of Berkeley and Nevada City. Since I commute to my job in Sacramento only 5 times per month I will have great flexibility in where I live when my son leaves for college. I clean up nicely but prefer hanging out with authentic people in shorts and sandals or boots and jeans versus dressing up in a suit and tie to impress someone. I am equally comfortable in a saddle or in a drum circle :) Substance, simplicity and humor is enough for me. That being said, no I don't wear the pink panties to work, really.
I think meeting people online is a wonderful tool. It is not a panacea for finding that special person but most people are interesting in their own way. If I want to meet you it is because I don't believe in trying to get a true feel for someone through a pile of emails. I believe you learn much more about your compatability in 15 minutes of face to face interaction. I am easy to talk to and meeting shouldn't be scary or difficult. It is just an opportunity to introduce yourself to someone who probably has some interesting things to share.
I don't know who would want my photos but stranger things have happened so:
