Just back from two fantastic trips: Antarctica (after NYE in Buenos Aires) and Jordan & Israel. 2014 was a big travel year without much time for dating. This year, I'll be home more, so let's get something started!
I'm a fun, smart, funny, cool, interesting, active, sexy (or so I'm told), rather hedonistic, redhead. I have an insane kitten, new puppy, pair of turtles and a white dove, but they can't go to movies or plays or dinner with me, and their conversation skills are limited to meows, coos and whatever sound turtles make. Therefore, I'm looking for a nice, (fairly) normal guy to do things like [movies], [cooking], [wine tasting], and [camping]. I'd eventually like a boyfriend, someone to "go steady" with, or some similar intimate relationship that includes regular dates and frequent nookie.
I know most of you want a Barbie. Well, so I'm not that. But I walk at least two miles a day several days a week, do water aerobics, kayak, zumba, line dance, ride a bike, and am very bendy. So, there. Nobody's perfect. I won't rule you out for not being an ideal physical specimen. Goes both ways.
I am smart, sassy and sensual.
I went to the Galapagos Islands. I had iguanas on my shoulders. So cool. Amsterdam, Belgium and Luxembourg. Great time. Egypt, Indiia, Ireland, Cambodia, Italy, Spsin....So many places to go!
I do make an impression when I walk into a room and I've been told I'm hard to miss, hard to forget, and an all around hoot.
My favorite movies are Shrek and Princess Bride but I have a zillion other favorites; I LOVE LOVE LOVE movies. I go to a lot of theater ( "Addams Family," "Animal Crackers", "The Cabinet," "The Ring Cycle"), opera and ballet (but I don't expect everyone to go with me; I have girlfriends for that.) I enjoy twisted cartoons ([Adult Swim,] Invader Zim, Family Guy, South Park and ESPECIALLY [Archer], which is hysterical), comedy (Big Bang Theory & 30 Rock]; [Monty Python] always), sci-fi and good horror [Anerican Horror Story]; need to see more [Walking Dead]. Craig Ferguson and Letterman are my late night guys. Can't wait for Game of Thrones!
I love camping, kayaking (I have my own), biking, bowling (badly), gardening, and ESPECIALLY travel. I've been to Scandinavia (5 countries in 17 days - whew!), Egypt, Greece and Turkey, India, Asia, Europe and. South America, among others. I have diverse taste in music, from alternative when I'm walking, like Vampire Weekend, Fun, Foster The People, to Offspring, Weezer, Eminem and NIN when I'm driving, world music when I'm working, classical when I'm reading, and bluegrass and western swing, like Chris Isaak and Punch Brothers. Loving Mumford and Sons. I don't care much for most rap or twangy country-western, although Hank Williams Sr. is classic.
[Ethnic food] is almost all yummy, especially Thai and Indian. Sushi. And Mexican. And pizza, duh.
You can always spot the Stan Lee cameo in every Marvel movie. And it delights you.
You are looking for an actual relationship. I'm not saying we have to get married, or stay together forever, although don't most people want someone to be with long-term? I want an actual boyfriend. That's all. I'm not that demanding.
Can I just mention here that when I say "boyfriend" it's not a life sentence? :) A couple guys have said they think I'm looking for something super serious and restrictive or something. I'm not sure what they think a "boyfriend" is, but it's just a word for someone to be with and date...not someone joined at the hip! Just sayin'. Relax, everybody! Aren't we all here looking for someone special in our lives?
You don't just want to comment on my boobs. Tacky.
You are a fairly attractive guy (not holding out for George Clooney but won't settle for Quasimodo....) with a sense of humor, a job, and lots of brains, who likes equally to go out and do stuff, and stay in and smooch in front of a fire (preferably in a fireplace). And you know the difference between "your" and "you're" and you occasionally use punctuation.
Not having any babies myself, but am great with kids if you have some.
NO cigarette smokers (open minded on other smokables) or heavy drinkers (if you EVER drive drunk, move along), please. And thanks everyone from out of state/country, but unless you're planning to move to Chicago, it's probably not in the stars for us.
Oh, and speaking of stars, if you really believe in astrology, or are really religious, or think creationism has any validity whatsoever, or that the Earth is bigger than the sun, we're not a match. I'm an agnostic atheist, ethical humanist, and skeptic, and very serious about it.
