I am passionate, dynamic, inquisitive, and resilient, at least that is what others tell me. They also say that I am playful, enthusiastic and curious.. I seek LOCAL involvement - not interested in something long distance. There is a reason for this. Ask me about it. Not up for a one night stand or something fleeting either.
I love that you have time for me. ( i can't stress the importance of this )
geographically i edited my profile zip code because i was getting too much interest from canada. dating canadiens is NOT an option for me. it's a passport/canada issue, not a you are a canadien thing. please don't take it personally.
I live in Everson, WA which is about 35 minutes from Bellingham
I know what i am seeking in a man. I don't know how to articulate all that is of value to me without sounding like i am ordering a pizza with extra mushrooms. a man is not a pizza. i get that. just like i am not a hot fudge sundae with a cherry on top. i am what i am. I don't expect perfect. I do expect effort. I promise to meet that effort more than half way. I know i value and desire the good company of a man in my life. what that looks like remains to be seen. this is why i am here. what brings you here??
I utilize my online dating profile as a sorting tool. In past relationships I've tried to let certain red flags slide, my thinking was that being accepting is part of being a good person. truth is - red flags are there for a reason. While my sorting might seem like I am perhaps very particular. It does not make me unapproachable. It just helps me sort. perhaps you can respect that.
I realize that certain issues are a past of things gone wrong. this does NOT mean that men in my past ruin things for the next man in my life. i really don't focus there. Instead I like to focus on the list of what works, what i love about a man, what attracts me to a man and so on.
the details i've written here? they matter.
preparing food is meditative for me, foreplay actually, and very very important to my day to day and my expression. foodies are welcome - especially if you don't mind occasionally doing the dishes.
I loathe TV, sports, and fast food. these things are deal breakers for me, as are smokers and those of religious zeal.
kisses. lots and lots of...kisses
my kids and friends
i am herpes positive. i prefer not to give herpes 101 lessons.

i speak of it here and upfront because you then get to proceed in communicating with me - informed - rather than get wigged out about it when i tell you in person later. I am allergic to all condoms.
