I'm somewhat of a homebody, but enjoy a good concert (delta blues/rock/reggae), theater show, or eating out. It may be cliche, but I've discovered that life is indeed too short. We must count all our blessings, and enjoy all of life's little pleasures. Like that first sip of coffee in the morning; the smell of lilacs in the Spring or freshly cut grass in the Summer; the taste of warm apple pie; hearing a song you haven't heard in forever and enthusiastically singing along on your commute despite any looks from other commuters, or passengers...I could go on, but you get the idea.
Traditionally, I have been attracted to out-going, confident, independent, self-assured women. I also prefer to be around people who have a good sense of humor, and who don't take life's little stresses too seriously. Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely empathetic, compassionate, and sensitive; particularly to those I'm closest to. I also prefer those who take care of themselves (moderation in all things, no smokers), but not necessarily fanatics about it. OK, I do believe I may be rambling. If you're interested, let's see if you'll "get me" and if there might be a connection.
