I'm born and raised in Minneapolis...I have four daughters (two youngest are still at home) and a granddaughter and grandson. I love sports....AAU (I have a daughter that plays AAU/HS ball), high school and college basketball (OHIO STATE BABEEE) and of course I'm a fan of the Vikes (until they start loosing). Please, let's not discuss the Vikes right now. Ugh.
I'm pretty creative with my hands. I love art. Right now, I'm working on some Mosaic pieces...work in progress! I don't drink much. But, I love to cast a line in a lake somewhere with a beer or a glass of a quality white wine after work. Most of the people I know, would say I am a social bee. Love a good conversation! I'm done with the club scene but I will check out a live band somewhere around town. I take care of business as far as home is concerned (own place, career and a beater for a car! LOL). I have this crazy, eclectic taste in music. Tell you what, download Timotha Lanae "Red," or N'dambi "Ode 2Nina" If soul...jazz is your thing? Oh....you will thank me for these recommedations later. lol :) (Just a taste of what i like, music wise). Going back to school is on top of mind right now. I really enjoy my career, but it's time to do something I'm passionate about. MUSIC. I think I'm good at what I know. Yup. :)
What I'm looking for? I've had a few years to figure that out. I've been through some challenges with 2 long relationships that i have learned a lot from. I do realize that there are some great men around. I don't hold my past accountable for meeting new people at all.
They say everyone looks for a 'soul mate.' I wonder if people understand what that means? A person who believes in establishing the most meaningful friendship, shares similarities in interests, morals and values. Ever had someone you just VIBE with? Gaining a meaningful friendship first? Those are some simple traits that seem to be a thing of the past. It's like a picture perfect movie scene that one dreams about. The quote "More that meets the eye..." That's so very true. Of course looks are great. But.... an individual who has morals, some sense, respect, free-thinker, positive, motivated, and lastly, responsible? Almost perfect in my opinion. How about a relationship where both sides never stop trying? That's what I want. Something everlasting. Since i have been single for a few years and i don't mind waiting as long as it takes.
Some facts? I'll give you five. 1, I've worked at two record stores growing up. I am one of those music HEADS. THE best job EVER! Hands down. 2, got a chance to host for Prince at an edit. (I worked for a Post Production House) An experience, for sure! 3, Not really a fan of Golf....but I want to learn how to play...bucket list!!! 4, i was in a "so called" break dance crew in 9th grade (Don't ask me to do that now...i SUCKED at it. LOL!!) Crazy days... 5, I have NEVER been to Vegas! Everyone has been to Vegas but me. Bucket list!
A few things I'm not crazy about? Liars, disrespectful people, braggers, negativity and folks who are obsessed with politics/religion.
I write how I think and sincere of all what's written. I have an exceptional witty personality and extremely comfortable in my skin. My words are meant to start a conversation, not criticism. With all that said, anything negative stays at the door. Please don't waste my time or yours. At this point in my life, I'm willing and open to explore dating, If it goes further, awesome! If not, maybe gained a great friend. My best friend and i always say, with every man we meet, there is a side effect or two. Absolutely, no one is perfect. If you think you are? You are not being honest with me or yourself. Ya know, everyone must realize that 'anyone is not for everyone.' Its OKAY not being compatible with people you meet. That's why we fish, right?
Thank you for taking the time to read through all of this. I know.....i have alot written here. Lol. But, trust me when i say there is SO much more to know. Excited yet? :)) Good luck on your search for "pure bliss." R~
