Entitled folks need not apply. If you have a compliment, own it, say it, but don't think I owe you more than thank you. If you have a comment or question, ask like someone worthy of respect and you will get it in return. Act like a generic comment means I owe you something, and should I choose to respond, you will not like what I have to say. If you wouldn't walk up to me in person and say that, don't funk up my inbox with your social ineptitude. If you want to know more about me, have your questions ready because there's enough info on here to help you with those questions; I am not going to pry them out of you. Not ready to handle a conversation like an adult? Rest assured, you will find me insulting.
I am an animal welfare advocate (not to be mistaken for an animal rights advocate. I don't throw theatrical fits in public because someone chooses to wear fur for the sake of drawing negative attention to my cause. I chose not to wear the skin of an animal I won't eat, thereby not contributing to something I personally find distasteful.)
I am educated as a veterinary assistant and as a massage therapist and work as a volunteer activity coordinator for an equine humane society. I've learned over the last few years that for as 'under the radar' as this all sounds, all one has to do is appear on the local and national news and BAM! Instant rockstar: more news cameras, interviews, social media hype, visits from law enforcement (and lawyers), stalkers and all.
For fun, I occasionally appear undead in public. And no, the month of October is not a prerequisite for me to do this, however I did just play a zombie extra in a live production of Night of the Living Dead. Twas so much fun I predict a repeat performance in the future.
Other things...I have no interest in organized religion. If you do, that's great, leave me out. If you indicate a religion of any kind that you take seriously, don't write me. We are not likely to get along even in text.
I do not have children. If you do, that's wonderful. I have no interest in meeting them on a first date, nor hearing about them as if they are your sole interest or identity, just as I'm sure most folks wouldn't want to hear me go on ad nauseum about my horse or my dog.
Oh, and if you have pics of children in your profile, don't write me. I have no desire to speak with or meet single parents that use their children's image on an adult dating site. If you can't figure out what's wrong with that, no amount of conversation with me is going to help you.
