My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a single mom of two teens who live with me half the time. That gives me a lot of time to pursue my own interests. I am not interested in having any more biological children, but it's fine with me if you already have kids.

I am also lucky enough to be in a place in my life where I have the freedom to travel more than normal. I've taken a (paid) sabbatical off work to focus on me. I enjoy road trips, weekend getaways and full exploring new places. Lots can be learned from being in a new culture.

I'm not sure what to make of this online dating experience. We all try and sell ourselves on here, trying to impress the opposite sex. Anyone else feel like we are peacocking? Ha! I believe everyone has good and bad traits, and the key is not to find someone who doesn't, but it's to find someone who meshes with yours.

A pretty significant event changed my view on life about 3 years ago. It forced me to re-evaluate everything and really discern what matters. As a result, I'm now less shallow, and more present day to day. I also choose happiness over things like security. At the very least, I look past most superficial things a lot more than I did before. That said, I am looking for a partner who is equally evolved. Most people won't admit they are shallow, but many are. I was.

What else? Hmmm...I don't eat meat. Or eggs or dairy. Call me crazy but yuck. Yes that makes me vegan. Don't worry, I'm not here to lecture you or shove veggies down your throat. Though if you're a big meat eater, there may be too much of a gap between us. Im not saying we can't date, but if you can't at least go easy on the meat around me, any potential relationship with us might be entirely too much frustration and work. For both of us. I would find it gross and you would find it annoying.

I should mention I'm not in a hurry to find someone. My life is good the way it is. I have my kids, my friends and my dog. Keeping myself busy. If we met, I would want to start out slow, being friends first and getting to know each other for a while to make sure we were, in fact, compatible. Too many times I jump in and realize a few months later that we want different things. This time, I want to try something different. After all, I'm bound to get this relationship stuff right eventually...

I also have 5 tattoos and I cant promise I will not get more. I've been told that some men don't like tattoos and I had 'better put it on my profile' (my tattoos are girly and dainty so I don't see the big deal, but there you have it)

Hmmm... what else? I should also admit that I am not looking for just a pretty face, (though if you are extremely handsome, don't just pass by, say hello for Pete's sake!) I am looking for a cerebral connection as well. I have briefly dated some men in the past, who I have been extremely attracted to physically, but when they spoke, my brain got angry. I'm not looking to do that again.

Please don't send a one liner, which only talks about my physical attributes that you like about me, I will not reply. Save yourself the one minute effort you put forth in contacting me. I think at this point we all should have a very good idea about what we are looking for in order to have a meaningful and fulfilling relationship. I may not be your cup of tea, and you may not be mine. Please don't take that personally.

So there you have it. Good luck to us all on here. May we find what we are looking for. And in the meantime, well, there's always Netflix :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy my free time to it's fullest. I go out with friends, spend time alone, go to concerts and eat out. I have started being a lot more purposeful in my decisions, and that has lead to a much more fulfilling life. I don't worry about what other people think ... anymore. It's been liberating.

I also write. A lot. I write birthday cards, blogs, books... I love to write. In fact, I am far superior at expressing my thoughts and ideas in writing than if put on the spot in person.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Really good at? Hmmm... I don't know. I can spell pretty good. I can even manage to use big words sometimes.
There used to be a time I was okay at playing online poker. Though I haven't played in years so who knows how 'good' I really am now.
And quoting random facts that I once saw in a documentary.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea.
That's because people lie. Nobody in their right mind tells you the truth about this... They would probably say my smile or my eyes... but I bet they're looking at my ass.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You know, I've lived in 4 countries, and moved umpteen times. I have learned new languages and embraced new cultures. If nothing else, I adapt to all situations.
Which means there is nothing that I cannot live without... 'Need' is an illusion.

I WANT my kids and my friends around. Sometimes even my family :) but those are not things...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Holistic nutrition - and how much power we have to heal our bodies from within. I would love to get my Registered Holistic Nutritionist diploma and really do something like that for a living. You know, be passionate about my career rather than 'meh' about it - which I currently feel about my current career in taxes. In fact, I spend a lot of time visualizing myself having my own practice, somewhere off the grid. Ahhh... Who doesn't love a daydream?
I also spend quite a bit of time thinking about different documentaries I've watched, especially my favorite by Gary Yourofsky "The Best Speech You Will Ever Hear" , or 'Forks over Knives' - equally awesome.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's a little twisted that they even put this question in here, hmmm...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have actually read my profile. Yes, I can tell if you haven't.
You are a non smoker and a non drug user. Yes, pot is a drug.
You think taking care of yourself is important.
You give a damn about our planetary companions. It doesn't mean you have to be vegetarian or vegan, but you have compassion for all living things and you are not the type of guy who puts salt on a slug, for example 'just for fun'.
You have at some point entertained the idea of just leaving the big city and build a cabin somewhere and living off the land... not that I think that would ever happen, but hey, it is somewhat of a fantasy of mine and I'd like you to be able to at least imagine it.
Also, I love tattooed men, yes. But if your last tattoo made you bounce your rent cheque, please don't call me. I've already met enough guys (yes, plural!) like that and it's frightening. Can you please have your $hit together?
