That said, here's info about me:
I enjoy spending time with others but need downtime alone. The week is spent with teaching teens with their energy, crises, and learning, so afterwards, I expend a lot of energy to be social whether for a night out dancing,playing games, or watching movies with friends. I can be very talkative but it takes time for me to open up enough to share myself. I do not trust people easily and it is even harder for my trust to be rebuilt once broken. Analyzing other people's actions and inactions as they relate to what I am doing or trying to do tends to affect me more than I should allow.
I am looking for a relationship - not a hookup. I am looking to actually develop something meaningful. I truly miss the process of dating and building attraction.
I am looking for someone I can trust and believe in. Someone who has similar interests and takes pleasure in a variety of activities. Someone who enjoys being out socializing with friends, camping on clear starry nights, and cuddling at home watching movies. If I am worth the effort to know and love, I expect someone who is also worth the effort I am willing to put forth.
For many hobbies, I am involved with the Society of Creative Anachronism. I am loving it! Medieval life, arts, crafts, fighting, and more are at my disposal. I also enjoy RPG and tabletop games so I can be found at a local game store having fun too.
Dating is an adventure and I have been in monogamous relationships with both women and men - they are equally confusing. Monogamy is my preference so gender is not what I worry about first when dating; it is attraction.
