Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spend most of my day taking care of my kids, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I don't do "conventional"...

09/2014 UPDATE: Right now, I'm not looking for any kind of a relationship past friendship. This account is being left active for two reasons... 1 - in case my wonderful husband starts talking to someone and wants to show her my profile... 2 - in case someone out there wants a friend to talk to that has maybe dealt with some of the same shit they've been through... To that effect, I am leaving the rest of my profile as it stands, because it reflects who I am and what I want out of life. Peace.

Friendship

Anyone wanting to just chat and maybe get a new friend is welcome to hit me up. :) ...I am not on here primarily to find a boyfriend. In fact, I consider the chances of actually finding the right guy for my situation to be very small, if at all. Most of what I'm doing here is looking for new people to talk to and chat with and get to know. If I bullshit with you or flirt with you, do not consider that something to yell at me about if you "just want to be friends". I am like that with all of my friends, it's just part of who I am. It's probably not personal. So, if you are interested in a possible relationship (eventually), please tell me. Otherwise, I will presume we are strictly working toward a new friendship...

Polyamory

My wonderful husband and I have been happily married for three years, and are currently looking into the polyamorous concept. We are looking for an exclusive long-term relationship. This is not to be confused with polygamy, flings, swingers, or other arrangements that are mostly about sex. We would like to find someone with similar interests who can become a close friend, then have things progress from there. This would be a non-discreet relationship so everyone involved would know exactly what's going on and we would all hang out together just for fun as well. Ideally, we would like to find someone open to everyone living together eventually. If you're interested hit me up and we can chat. My husband is straight, so any interested guys must be as well.

Polyamory is not about sex. It is about the belief that it is possible to love more than one person, and the desire to do so. It is the search for an emotional connection and bond that keeps people together even if times are bad. It is about my husband and I finding another person to welcome into our family and share our lives with. Someone who can become a supportive partner in the relationship with me and my husband. Ths is not a separate relationship, but an expansion on it instead. It is not about sex. It is not about some problem between us; there is none. My husband's id is mattgunguy, if you want to look him up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Family

I'm homeschooling my daughters, raising my deaf/autistic son, taking care of my mom, and being my husband's companion. I'm making it through life one day at a time and hoping that it pays off in the long run.

My family is my world. We do everything together: birthdays, anniversaries, movie nights, date nights, etc... If I say "we" are going out for coffee, that means my family, not just me and my husband. This includes me, my husband, our kids (2-3 depending on the day), and probably my mom. That's just how we do things. We get our alone time after the kids are in bed, so do not expect us to bail on them for coffee or a movie just because that sounds good to you...

Homeschooling

Homeschooling is one of my few true passions in life. I devote most of my free time to sorting through and organizing books and curriculum, and trying to find the next best deal at a yard sale/thrift shop. I manage to come up with an educational purpose to damn near anything. It's sort of a talent.

Our daughters love reading, and devote an average of 2-3 hours a day to nothing but that. We have a fairly well stocked library in our basement, and around 2,500 books on our Kindle (mostly free classic literature). Our family is very educationally motivated, and I tend to consider the future of this country to rest on the education and upbringing of the next generation. If you want to talk/learn more about homeschooling, please send me a message.

"Special Needs"

My son is deaf/autistic. He also has very minor cerebral palsy. If you message me to tell me you're sorry or how unfortunate that is, you're likely to get a response thoroughly bitching you out. He is considered our family mascot when it comes to the kids, everyone who takes the time to know him loves him. He is non-verbal, cannot sign, and has failed miserably at picture communication. But he is a master of "unconventional" communication methods. Overall, he is considered the easiest one of our kids to deal with and be around. We wouldn't trade him for the world. Again, if you want to talk about those subjects, feel free to hit me up. Just don't do it with a line of sympathy. We love our baby very much just the way he is. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
keeping my friends company when they're having a bum day and just need someone to be there and listen. Or if they need a really long hug. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My kids are my best feature. I have at least two of them with me at all times during the day. That's how I like it.

Our family has a stuffed animal collection. Our critters will talk to you and wave at you and lick you. That's just how they are. Leopold and Roxie travel most places with us, guarding the car while we go shopping. Super Fluffers is a 4.5' bear on our living room floor. Great for cuddling with.

We have an assortment of skunks, of the plush, ceramic, plastic, and paper varieties. Almost anything depicting skunks becomes a family gem. Our plush collection currently has about a dozen skunks.

I love hugs, but I hate having to ask for them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My kids
- Music
- Literature
- A pen
- The freedom to raise my children however I see fit
- A gun (or two)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
nothing. I try not to think too much about anything in specific, it just leads to problems.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
cruising the town or country-side in our truck. PS - if you see our girls waving out the back of the deuce, you damn well better wave back! It makes them smile. :)

If we're not out in the truck, we're probably at the coffee shop wih my family, or letting the kids stay up late to watch a movie in the living room, or sending the kids to bed and curling up naked on the couch to watch a movie...

We are nudists at heart, so if you know me long enough, I'm sure the topic will come up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I have problems coping with life somedays. Doesn't everyone?... More specifically, I have Borderline Personality Disorder. If you don't know what that is, feel free to look it up. I am an open book, I never (intentionally) hide anything. I have severe attachment issues at times (ask my husband about that). I've been suicidal at times (thank my daughter for pulling me through). And I owe my family for every day that I manage to make it safely to bed at night. I thrive on hugs and fade away at criticism and critiques (even when meant to be positive). I push the envelope every single day and am very passionate about making others aware of those dark little secrets so many people try to bury in their souls. That is most of what I end up writing about. Ironically enough, writing about these things helps me to not focus on them so much... Again, if you want to talk about it, let me know.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You manage to hit the bottom of this page and still want to chat... Please don't just look at my page and decide to let me message you first. Unless you have a really cute critter in your pics, or some awesome tat pics, or a snarky comment I just can't resist, it ain't gonna happen.

You are interested in homeschooling in any format or modality.

You have a loved one who is "outside the box" and you want someone to talk to about it that might understand. Or at the very least, would have an open mind and truly listen.

You want to learn more about my fucked up little world and who I really am somewhere inside of it all.

I am open to chatting with any gender, any race, any age. The above guidelines of gender/age are strictly if you are interested in pursuing a possible relationship past that of friendship. Thank you.

If you message me stating that you are "interested in a relationship", please be aware that traveling or moving out of this area is not an option for us. So, either you must live within an hour or so of us, or you must be willing to do the driving. While we may bitch about being here, and wish like hell most days that we could leave, this is where we are and must be for the forseeable future.
