I'm a bit of a workaholic, but I make time to meet people and get to know them. To be honest, I'm tired of "dating." Ideally, I want something meaningful, lasting. But, in order to get to the lasting, I have to take a chance, and open myself up. So that's what I do.
I am open about my feelings and i'm not ashamed to be myself.
Other things about me that you might find important to know:
I try to take care of myself and eat healthy, but if i could find a guy to motivate me to do a better job at that, it'd be a plus. I enjoy running when i have someone to run with, so if you're a runner and interested in me, that's a plus :P (however, i'm super slow. lol just a warning) But, along these lines, I expect everyone to take care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually- what ever that happens to mean to you.
I have a passion for the arts and will try to convert you.
I like my coffee and alcohol strong and straight! It's always good to meet friends for either, or both even. hehe
I'm a great person to talk to when you need someone to listen!

I cheated on tests in 5th grade... I thought i was helping a friend when i'd give him the answers to questions he didn't know. The teacher explained that he had to learn on his own, that i was actually jeopardizing his future if he didn't learn to do things on his own.
let's see- what else...
In middle school i had a pretend girlfriend. Ask me that story sometime- it involves Nevada, couch pillows, older men and magical color changing hair.
When i was 8, i was determined to one day be a Power Ranger- The blue ranger of course. I was so determined that i shared my dream at "Show and Tell" one day in second grade.
And one more serious one:
Even though I've learned a lot about myself and mistakes I made in past relationships, I'm still afraid I'm going to repeat some of them. And along those lines, I'm still afraid that I won't be an adequate lover with my partner.
You are a person who would respect me.
You want to know more about me.
You are not afraid to be who you are.
I look forward to hearing from you :-)
