My self-summary
Originally from Southern California, I have been a single parent (no ex drama, and I had full custody) of my 21 y.o.son, who is out on his own! Been divorced 13+ years. I am more concerned with what is right or wrong, not with who is right or wrong. I don't hold grudges, as they are too heavy. Patience, and forgiveness are standards that I practice in my life. I am rarely bored. Calm under pressure. Some of the 'spices' of life I enjoy are cooking, baseball, staying fit, horses, learning languages (working on medical Spanish right now), oceans, rivers, and lakes, the outdoors, and other stuff and things. I try to have a grateful attitude in all things, a balanced life, and have a servant's heart. Adaptable and easy to get along with, too. I have a moral compass and am loyal and don't run at the 1st or 3rd sign of trouble. I am not impressed by the size of your house, car, or bra, but with the size of your heart.
I'm D&DF, no tats, either. Just sayin'.
What I’m doing with my life
Always trying to make a positive difference and being a good role model for my son. I've done volunteer work in the past, and currently give time to the county's MVDR program. Working on the side to become a professional mariner. Trying to figure out how to make a good espresso/cappuccino with my espresso machine. My other coffee-making skills are well-grounded. Haha.
I’m really good at
picking up on or making connections to random pop-culture references, making people feel comfortable. Also, anticipating and identifying the needs of others, but am not a mind-reader. Finding the humor in most things. Bringing out the best in people without being intrusive or overbearing. Remembering dates and anniversaries. I connect well with most fellow humans. When it comes to relationships, I do not sit around and think, "What do I expect from a partner," I think more along the lines of, "What can I offer the relationship?" Really.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably is my sense of humor. Maybe. I never asked anyone this question before, but I have been told that I have good manners.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hmmm...I usually have several books going at any one time. I looove Mexican food, American, Persian, Indian, vegetarian, Italian, Tex-Mex, most cuisines. Spicy is usually a plus. I am on an endless hunt for the perfect breakfast--which of course, can be eaten at any time of the day! NY style pizza over Chicago, but it's all good. Being in Yosemite is like music and food combined--it's one of my favorite places on earth, but I do need ocean and the plains and desert as well. Like anything else, I like some of most genres of music. My favorite music is whatever I am in the mood for at the moment!
The six things I could never do without
Faith, fresh air, books, strong coffee, friends, aikido.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
doing the right thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
typically glad the typical week is almost over.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
to won't be here, but I'll 'fess up a lot to your face.

Ok, after deep consideration, I offer the online dating world this tidbit: I like Vegemite.
You should message me if
any of this resonates with you, or if you feel like it. Also, I am most attracted to those who lead balanced lives, have a great sense of humor, are loyal, have kind hearts, and don't hold grudges. You take care of your body and are reasonably healthy--emotionally and physically, and don't have serious personality disorders (or multiple personalities). I don't live in my past and neither should you. Your success in life does not threaten me. Please expose me to something new! Be able to give and receive affection freely.

*NOTE: If you don't have a pic on your profile when sending me a msg, I won't respond; that's like wearing a bag over your head when meeting someone! I'll assume you're afraid someone will recognize you and tell your SO! Either that or you're hiding something. If your profile is empty, I probably won't reply to you. I took the time to reveal some of myself. If you are here, then you should, too.
