My self-summary
Caring, quirky, stylish, dynamic ISFP girl seeks partner for adventure, exercise, deep talks, funny banter, and silent nights watching a fire or listening to the crickets....
What I’m doing with my life
My life includes
- lots of kid time. I have my kid half of the time and half of every weekend. We are buddies but I am also definitely the 'parent' too :)
- lots of dog time. I don't live with my dog so I try to see him every weekend and we go on walks and hikes, or hang out on a sunny patio
- exercising at the gym 2 - 3 times a week
- family time (close family, 1 of 3 siblings and we get together about every other week)
- spending time with grandma usually running errands for her!
- eating well! Both at home (cooking) and at restaurants
- working furiously Monday - Friday and being very chill on the weekends
- late nights reading Huffington Post and going into a wiki wormhole

I'm also pretty competitive... Perfect partner would also be competitive (tennis, card games, Mah Jong, running, anything) and be able to laugh at how serious and goofy they are.
I’m really good at
Making a commitment and sticking to it, working out problems. Making time for those I love and those that need me.
The first things people usually notice about me
When I laugh, I really laugh!! Very focused, passionate about my values, but also allowing others to have theirs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read Fiction -- just finished "Love May Fail" by Matthew Quick and loved it. Other favorite fiction are Bel Canto and No Way To Treat A First Lady. I also read Time magazine and fashion mags, People :)

For TV/Netflix, I like Aziz Ansari, both his standup stuff and Master of None. Generally like competitive cooking shows and reality shows (Mygrations and WAGS). But I don't really watch TV except when I travel (not much to do in a hotel room) and when I'm stuck at someone's house for a play date :)

As for sports, I love the Warriors and can get into soccer and tennis matches, but generally not a sports enthusiast. I'd rather be outside enjoying the sushine or rain, too.

Love music:

70's - Smokey Robinson, Earth Wind and Fire, Gap band

80's - Hall n Oates, New Order, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Prince

90's - Smashing Pumpkins, R&B, The Pixies, Mariah, Celine

Now - Alabama Shakes, Justin Beiber, EDM, Top 40, Rihanna

Movies - Romance and comedies are like chicken soup, also liked Clash of the Titans reboot, Friends with Kids, Crazy stupid love, Zootopia (watch a fair amount of kids/family movies out of necessity). While I like going out to the movies, I'm more of an outdoors person. At night, like to be cozy at home with a DVD or on-demand movie.

I like all kinds of food, healthy/greasy, ethnic, and fine dining. BBQ, fried anything, and pie are always welcome :) Daily though it's more like cereal, salad, and salmon for dinner.
The six things I could never do without
Dogs, jeans, boots, coffee, sunroof, radio.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Challenges of discipline and guidance (parenting)
- Self growth - being more patient, slowing down a bit
- Those happy, long term relationships that just last and last --- how do they do it??!!??
On a typical Friday night I am
Currently, doing the single girl thing of reading in bed, watching Netflix, and doing laundry :) ha ha :) Weekends are filled with outings and cuddle sessions with my dog and kid and shopping and hiking with my sisters :) But I think this question is about what Id like to do on a date (right??!! And not necessarily Friday) ...When I have a free night, I would love to get coffee/eat dinner out and walk around in the night air and enjoy each other's company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My dream is to just have a little house, with a close knit nuclear family, a yard, and a dog. Don't need to see the world or climb Everest. Just want a partner that is my best friend and we can plan our lives together.
You should message me if
You are also adventurous, optimistic, expressive, and love dogs and kids.
And you share these dating values generally:
- monogamy is necessary for more than kissing/cuddling.
- relationships take time and work and regular open communication
