My self-summary
I am looking for someone I can be friends with. Someone to laugh with and have adventures with. Looking for a match to my strong confidant , in charge, but gentle when needed.
I am passionate about being true to myself. Honesty is a must.
My family is small, but very important to me. I love to go out and engage in witty conversation whether the venue is a cafe or a dance club, but I can be a couch potato at times too : )
I am greatful for my health and clarity in all things and realize I am continually growing as a person.
I have a new love in my life and its riding my bike. I'm no Lance Armstrong, I just have peace when I can peddle by the Bay or ocean.
What I’m doing with my life
How time flies.... Been in the Bay Area now for two years. Doing a " do over" with my life. I have a small band of friends here, most are back in L.A. as well as all of my family 'cept my brother.
Working in my field, doing a job I am both proud of and passionate about and I am VERY aware how fortunate I am for that.
In some ways I am still finding my groove. Exploring new hobbies and embracing old ones. I am ready for the next chapter as they say. Ever optimistic and wearing my heart on my sleeve. I miss my family back in L. A., but everytime I look out towards the Bay, I know I am home.
I’m really good at
I am really good at being spontaneous! I go with the flow and love to see where the day will take me. I have an easy going, adventurous side!
I can rock 4" heels and truly be a girlie-girl, but am most comfortable in one of my many pairs of Chucks and prefer to be a natural (no makeup kinda gal).
If we were to go camping, I would not only help load the car, but I can set the tent up too ;)
I am also really good at my friendships. I have a great group of friends, most of which have over a 25 year history : )
** I am really good at being super afraid of spiders, but will handle almost anything else thats creepy crawly - save the slaying a dragon for the girls locked in a tower - "save me" from a spider and I'm yours **
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told it's my smile... cheese ; ) and good humor.
Recent true story: One of my 5 yr old students recently said "I see your butt"
Shocked, I replied," yep, thats my butt"
Taking another blatant look, he then gave me two thumbs up and said," Good Booty!" ...... So, its up to you what you'll notice first LOL
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music! Music! Music! I grew up in a household where there was always music playing. I am really into Reggae, but love everything from Mariachi to classical, dance to R&B, country and rap (just not too twangy or gangsta), 40's to disco and the list goes on...
I am a girl, so in terms of movies, I love a good "chick flick" but promise not to force them on anyone. I love thrillers but not scary movies (I can explain the difference later!) I am an adventurous eater, just not spicy; I know it goes against the stereotype, but I have reasons : )
I haven't kept up on my reading like I would like to. But try and flip flop my books between what I want to read and what I think I should read - mainly the classics I skipped in high school!
Six things I could never do without
the ocean
...there are more, but that's what getting to know someone is all about!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Designing this new chapter of my life, i am trying to live into the life I want.
Also, how to navigate both the time and geography as mom is not getting any younger.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with my friends or binge watching on Netflix cozied up on the sofa with my puppy on my lap.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well if I admit it here... then it's not really private now is it? Some things are worth the wait! :-)
You should message me if
The things I mentioned in here ring true for you too. If you want a friend first and honesty always...
*** important *** I am NOT looking to waste anyone's - including mine, time. I am not looking to hook up, I am really the person you see in the pictures. I am genuine and kind, and that is to be respected, like I will you.
I don't want someone to spend lots of money to impress me, I want someone who will INVEST himself in me.
Lets see what happens...
The two of us
