I tend to be a fish out of water here in Wichita, city of my birth, but not where I've always lived...and that's okay. I enjoy being able to think on my own and voicing my opinion. I love my life but I do try to get out whenever possible to enjoy this great big world of ours. I lived in Europe for about 4 years and traveled the continent extensively. I have also been to all but 8 states now. So when I say I love to travel, I mean it!
I tend to live my life a bit contrary to people here, but I have a job that is EXTREMELY rewarding (I teach high school) and rather mainstream. I keep very busy between home/family (my son is a teenager and always has something going on!) and school stuff, but would love to find someone who could share in our lives and us in theirs. I don't need someone with all the same interests, but some of the same would be nice. Nor do I need for someone to live here as long as they are willing to try to make a long-distance thing work long enough to see if a move should occur.
Also, if you are overweight and not ACTIVELY working on changing that; are a "cowboy" with real "cowboy" ways and beliefs; drink more than 2 drinks per day; do drugs of any kind; are closed-minded or are still married - I am so NOT your girl. I wish you all the best, but please don't waste my time or yours...
I am honest, open-minded, and independent.
I love most music...not terribly fond of country and rap, though. I still listen to my 80s alternative...The Smiths, The Smithereens, Green Day, Depêche Mode, Duran Duran (before they were HUGE), etc. I love listening to live music, so hopefully you will, too!
Food? I LOVE food! All kinds of food!!! We tend to eat a LOT of ethnic food...Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, Korean, etc. I love to cook, too...
