My self-summary
I have been nicknamed variously Web (short for Webster), Netters, Nate, Onate, Alpha, Augie, Shoe Diva, Foxy (not why you'd think), A-squared, San Diego, Yoda and Double A...which lead to "Battery". I am not sure why I have accumulated such a string of names, but I will chalk it up to having many facets, at least that's what I tell myself. That may be delusional but I am sticking to it.

I am an INFJ personality type, and find that I am very attracted to, and blend well with INTJ's. While I am inherently shy, I will open up fairly quickly once I get to know you. I really like people, and my sister says that I am the queen of "chitchat" in a social situation. I do not like head games and far prefer to deal openly, honestly and courteously (if at all possible) in all circumstances. A personal philosophy is that you can tell a lot about someone by the way they treat wait staff, receptionists, cab drivers, and phone customer service representatives. Sort of a variation on the "kids and dogs" maxim.

I am passionate about many things including my family (both genetic and found), my pets, my job, and my protective universe. But nothing on the exterior has the power to make me content or happy, and I am generally both. It is a much easier life to live when you are happy, don't you think? I have reached the point in my life that that I mostly like who I am, (there's always room for improvement), and I am seeking someone comfortable in their own skin that can accept me without trying to change me. I fully expect to reciprocate that respect.

That all being said, thank you for taking the time to read this far. If you are still interested I look forward to striking up a conversation.

Interesting that I find it necessary to post this, but here are some deal breakers:
1) Intolerance of others' sexual lifestyles. I am straight but have many friends in same sex relationships, several with children within the relationships.
2) Drug use. Whether casual or not, it is not something that will fit into my life
3) Dislike of animals. I understand many times pets do not fit into someone's life, but if you actually do not like animals, you are not a good match for me.
4) BDSM and/or multiples OR married. Good for you that you have found something you enjoy, but it is NOT for me. (And puh-leez!!! If you don't know what BDSM is, try Google. I know that you have a computer). I just recently had to clarify this statement because I guess it is not clear enough....for me it is NO to these sexual lifestyle choices.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it.
I’m really good at
Many things.....if they don't require a sense of direction, I was born without one.
The first things people usually notice about me
Short, short grey hair, green eyes and a huge smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I LOVE food. A favorite thing to do is go on a food tour that allows small bites of all new tastes. It is easier to go through the very short list of foods that I don't like rather than what I do like. I attempt to eat healthily, predominately organic food and try to avoid preservatives, premade and fast food. Well, Rubio's Fish Tacos are a major love in my life (bonus points if you know what I am talking about).
Avid watcher of live theater. I really enjoy going to the movies, and adore the kind of movie that compels me to think about it days later. But mindless, sheer fun, action adventure or stupid laughs also draw me to purchase a ticket. The only type of movie I won't go to are horror flicks. Nope, not for me.
The six things I could never do without
Hot showers

And my iPhone, didn't want one, but now I am addicted and electronically tethered.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

How is it possible that a car stopped on the shoulder of I5 can almost stop traffic and thereby affect so many people? It had me thinking about the ripple effect of actions and how one small thing can affect so many others. Made me want to be kinder. And to appreciate the small good things

Love this- "if you read the words fat-free or low-fat, think......chemical shit storm"

Is it just me or does it seem like people never look up from their phones to interact with humans anymore?
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on what the preceding week was like....but I am open to suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for tattoos.
You should message me if
If you feel like it.
Just know that "hey" or "how r u" or something of that ilk is not likely to get me to answer.
