1) Do you like horror movies?

(My answers: yes, yes, and yes)
I am a pretty suspicious person and don't open up to just anyone, although if you persist, are not a creep/idiot, and are an interesting person, you might crack my shell. I am intelligent, creative, fairly artistic and interested in many things. I especially enjoy music, reading good books and watching good movies. I practice yoga, knit, crochet, fold origami, write poetry and the occasional short story, and have been known to make collages and dabble in painting/drawing from time to time. I love to dance but don't get to clubs often enough, so my living room is my dance floor. I watch too much television, but I try to include a lot of PBS, so it's not ALL crap. I love cats in particular and animals in general; I find learning about nature and the planet fascinating, and try to be good to Mother Earth whenever I can. I was not raised with any particular religion and I like to pick and choose what I like from different religions/philosophies. I'm a big fan of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism. The "Golden Rule" is universal and you can't go wrong if you try to follow it. I'm an Aries with Scorpio Rising and Pisces moon, with Venus in Taurus and Mars in Aquarius.

I am shy, intelligent, and creative
I quit smoking on May 4, 2013. I smoked for 25 years. This is a huge deal, and it's the hardest thing I've ever done. If you are trying to quit, I'm happy to share my secrets or provide support (I used both the patch and lozenges.) As for dating smokers, I don't know whether it works or not. Haven't tried it yet. Could be a dealbreaker. Could be no problem at all. Who knows?
