Of course, I could write all sorts of things about how wonderful I am. These facts are probably all true. Of course, because I am prefect in every way. HEHEHE.
I know, I know. Bad joke.
Seriously now, who am I and what am I looking for on this site.
Who am I?
This is me in early May 2016. I am someone who is going through a lot of changes right now. I got laid off in March 2016 and just this past week I have sold my house. I am looking forward to a new adventure. I don't know where I am going, and I don't know how I am going to get there. But I will figure it out. I have always been very fortunate, and beautiful things happen to me, even though it may not always seem that way at the time. So I am going on an adventure and should happen to meet someone who is willing and able to join me, I would be happy. If not, I also will be happy to go on the adventure alone.
Here is what I am looking for.
I want someone who has a sense of fun and doesn't take herself overly seriously. It is my hope that she can see the humour in many things and together I want someone to laugh with. I want someone that is interested in others; is able and willing to compromise; is warm and caring; and is willing to talk openly about her needs and/or our differences of opinion in an environment of equality and mutual respect. The same will be returned.
If that interests and describes you - let's talk. Maybe even plan to meet.
Now I just need to figure out what the picture will look like. Then make it happen.
Life has been very good to me. I cannot complain (well, I suppose I could, but who is listening and for that matter most people don't care). It is scary sometimes, but under it all, I have an incredible sense of peace and calm. I know that wherever I end up, it will be an incredible place. If the universe finds someone amazing who can assist in painting the canvass, I will find room for her to join me in the voyage.
I have no idea what I am really good at, as I just do what needs to be done to the best of my abilities and go from there.
After that, they usually notice my eyes and smile and often come across as being somewhat shy and take a while to open up at first meeting, because as you would know, superheros try to blend in with their surroundings until needed.
People often find I am easy to talk to and it is probably because I genuinely like other people and their company.
I am not a big TV or movie type person maybe because I never converted my tv to digital or cable from rabbit ears when it went that way last summer - so I currently do not have tv right now. I enjoy dramas, crime and human interest and biographically-based stories. The TV shows I watch, when I watch, tend to be similar to the movies.
I very much enjoy music of all genres. Quite fond of classical, operas (on Saturday afternoons - it is an old tradition for me), jazz, classic rock, alternative, folk, blues - new music, old music to everything in between. My music interests are very, very (did I say very) broad. I am not particularly fond of mainstream top 40 country - and only allow myself to indulge in that genre during Stampede Week - because it is a losing cause to fight that battle.
Food? Yes please!!! I will try everything once, and more often than not more than once. If you put food in front of me I will eat it. I enjoy a wide assortment of world cuisine, and would like to know how to make some of it. I have a fantastic kitchen that is definitely under-utilized, but I only use it when I have time to do so.
This is a tough one, because there should be more than six things on this list. However, we are resilient people and we can do without a lot of things we think we could not do without. I want to be surrounded by beauty, respect, tolerance, good health, good food, friends and family. Oh and whirled peas.
Oh and I am trying to figure out new ways to create whirled peas!! (I feel like I am in a Miss Universe pageant, just typing these two words out)
Oh and I guess I could add another thing, I wonder why this goofy site and all their analytics think that I am not very romantic. Obviously, I haven't answered the right questions, or they are just blowing smoke.
