So, the basics...I'm a hard worker with strong work ethics. Work is play to some extent, but I make time for fun as well. That fun includes hiking, kayaking, drives in the mountains, a night downtown and a trip to the gym.
I'm a kind person with a big heart and would do anything for those close to me. I'm small town bred, and come with those values.
We all have things we're looking for, and things that are our deal breakers.
What I'm looking for: someone else with strong work ethics, who isn't intimidated by a strong woman. Someone compassionate with a kind heart. Someone that can carry on a good conversation. Who understands that I am shy at first but opens up, accepts that I can be opinionated, and understands that everyone my age comes with some sort of baggage. You have to be strong enough to help me unpack it. Oh, and you have to love the outdoors. Hiking is fun to me, so you need to be able to get to the top of a mountain. And that means a 14er. I would like someone who enjoys camping, kayaking, etc.
So some deal breakers: Kids are great, I'm a mom myself. But, my girl is grown, and I'm not looking to have another go-around with young kids. Anything less than double digits, I wouldn't be right for you.
And I don't care about amendment 64, I am drug free and you would need to be too.
A few things that I wont respond to: the shirtless pics in the bathroom mirror (c'mon, I'm not 20 and have more class-good for you if you're in that kind of shape, save it for someone you care about). The one who says they're tired of the bar scene, yet every pic is of them in a bar holding a beer. If you have more pics of the mountains/dogs than of yourself....I can sit on my couch and see the mountains. And with todays technology and ease of uploading photos, keep the ones of your ex to yourself. Us ladies can still see the hair and know what a cropped photo looks like :) also, if you message me by calling me honey or beautiful, I won't respond. Its not flattering in a first message.
