I tell people I'm ready to meet my partner in crime. Is this a Bonnie & Clyde or Mickey & Mallory crazy, passionate, "having each other's back" kinda thing? Absolutely! Only without the violence and getting shot at the end part. :-( It also means I'm looking for the person who takes the good with the bad...Someone to be a ridiculously flawed human being with...someone who can laugh at themselves and help me do the same if I ever forget that flawed human part.
I enjoy time with my son, but also enjoy the shared custody arrangement I have with his father. I love taking him to the beach, showing him new places, watching his mind expand every day. In his precise 11 year old words..."Mom, I think it's time you started dating." So, with limited time, here I am. Hoping to meet someone of substance, not just a hook-up.
Being the peace-keeper, a moderator. I tend to be the person who gets people of opposite opinions to come together in the middle. I think it's because I can see all sides of a situation.
Movies...I'm into just about everything, but I prefer either suspenseful, thought provoking movies (I LOVE a twisted ending) or mindless, silly comedy. And then of course there are the classics like The Big Chill and Goonies.
Music...all kinds, depends on my mood. I'm mostly into acoustic, blues, 80's and rock and I like some tribal and techno depending on my mood. Some favorites are jack johnson, dmb, bb king, pearl jam, chili peppers, daughtry, pink, nickelback, dead can dance, matisyahu, depeche mode, bob marley and van morrison. This year's concerts have been The Whalers, Dave Matthews, Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20 and Pink.
Food...I like a variety, Thai, steak, Italian, Mexican. For me food is all about the atmosphere and the company you're enjoying it with.
My friends & family
A sense of purpose
Physical contact with the opposite sex
Without my son...happy hour with friends, cooking out or eating out together, heading out for a weekend road trip or boat trip
Oh yeah...and that "replies selectively" shouldn't keep you from saying "hi". Somehow I don't think messages like "Whatzup" or "Let's hook up babe" deserve a reply.
