Let me be upfront. I'm not "easy". Sadly I have to say that due to trolls. :P
I have a mind, heart and soul. I'm an artist, mom, and a freelancer looking for work in the Tampa Bay area. I am BUSY.
My kids' dad lives in PA, so this isn't a "Drop the kids off with their dad so mom gets a one night stand" sort of deal. I'm a full time mom, and my kids will always come first.
I am more then welcoming of friend requests - especially from other creative types. <3 Love my people. ;)
I'd LOVE to find "art buddies". As I uprooted from NJ most of my friends are up there, so I'm rather floating free. As a bit of a social butterfly, I need friends. ^.^ It doesn't matter if you craft, write, sing, paint, dance, etc...
To be sure when I get my own place (as I'm staying with my sis right now), I'll host some nightly "art jams". But this will be sometime in the future.
Art is life.
Can you tell I'm tired of the trolls? I'm far too complex an individual, with too many layers. I'm too old and world-wise for the petty high school games. Sex doesn't equal love. Sex is the icing on the cake, in my personal opinion. It's the sugar that makes the coffee sweet. The gold at the end of the rainbow, so to speak.
And yes.... I like sex. BUT, I prefer it safe and sane. Thanks.
I'm interested in making new friends mostly. I've lost touch with a lot of my old friends from moving, them moving, or such.
The relationship with my kids' dad left me in an emotional limbo. After being rescued by my sister, and being dragged to Florida, I've finally gotten my head together (mostly).
Could I seriously date someone if I wanted to? Sure.
Am I interested in it at this time? Not really. We can see just where things go as things progress.
Could it happen? Perhaps. Attraction is what it is, and does what it does - the heart has funny ways about it.
Push it in the initial stages and I don't care how truly awesome you really are, I will ban/block you.
Now that I've gotten that clear, feel free to read on. It's long, so if you message me with a tl;dr attitude our conversation will be short at best. :?
If you can't tell at this point....... I am rather verbose, usually.
Honesty and openness is best no matter what in which type of relationship one finds oneself involved. This is something of a mantra I carry around with me all the time. I don't care for the "white lies to make someone feel good" thing. If my hair looks bad, for the love of pete tell me so I can fix it! If you smell bad, I will tell you, so you can fix it. ;)
However, this means I can hurt feelings when I don't mean to, even with a side joke or witty remark. If you don't have "thick skin" or are not at peace with yourself, this may mean bad feelings for us both. Just to be warned, I honestly do not mean to be "mean".
I also have an odd sense of dark humor. I laugh at things that may not be appropriate Again I know this isn't exactly kosher, so I try to limit it. Heh. ^.^
I went to art school and have a BS in Computer Animation. I want to go back for a teaching degree and/or finish my studies in Environmental Science. Yes... Yes Olivia, I am a nerd. An artist nerd.
Oh and I'm a German-phile. And a StG nut with a dash of Klingon. Fantasy. I like to write - but really have horrible grammar. No really. I write like I talk. ;) The list goes on.
I don't trust easily, but for those who have earned it, they have also earned a loyal friend for life. I have various "circles" of friends, and some of them are closer to me then my own family.
I have a passion for life and all things in it, for good or for bad.
I'm a gamer. No Cujo, not JUST a video gamer gamer... I like board games, card games, table top rpgs, some video games.... it's entertaining. :)
Playing pool. Seriously when I go to the bar and they don't have a pool table, I leave. Simple.
I'm also a member of the SCA. Look it up. :)
I <3 dragons and wolves. I <3 Werewolves of all kinds, but prefer the feral "more wolf like" rather then the monstrous "ugly" type.
I love the outdoors, but due to my increasing asthmatic condition I'm not in the shape I need to do even light hiking (although my heart is in it!) I do need to get out of the house more, though. :)
I am an eclectic spiritualist.
I am tolerant to a certain degree, expect for stupid people. If you make my brain bleed from the level of moronic and self-destructive ways.., yeah don't bother me. Thanks.
I am drug free. Let me repeat.. drug free. I tolerant weed smokers to an extent, but really I don't need that kind of stuff in my life. My family was a family of addicts and I watched them all crash and burn. Why live like that? It only causes suffering. *SMH*
Also, for the weight-conscious, I am a bit on the overweight side. 5'8" and was at 230lbs. Mostly all baby-weight gain after having my daughter about a year ago.
I -will- eventually shed it back to 140 or 150lbs. *shakes a fist in determination*
Fine my art on my Fan Page "Drakenhart Studios" on Facebook.
