(4/30/13 update - I'll be moving to Austin mid-May, so went ahead and changed my location. Bye, bye New Mexico!)
I am ready for the next chapter in life - are you ready to join me?
I could start with the required "I am not good about writing about myself" but that is too cliche. So instead... I like to have fun. I try to be low maintenance, but am not always successful. I want someone to accept me for who I am, but challenge me to be better. II'm originally from California but don't miss it for several reasons. I've lived in NM for almost 8 years and have grown to really like Los Alamos, despite all its small-town-ness and quirks. But I doubt I will live here forever either.
I love to cook and entertain. I'm a pretty good cook. I like the outdoors enough. I can camp (but any more than a night or two and I start to get grumpy for a shower and indoor plumbing). I ski (but not when it's super cold because I'm a cold weather wimp). I love the beach. I love water. I've traveled a ton and have a list of places I'd like to see still or go back to someday. But I like my couch and I'm a bit of a reality tv junkie (but would not impose this flaw onto you - at least not tomorrow).
I think I have a good sense of humor. I am usually outgoing, but can be a bit shy (nervous) meeting people for the first time. And I can pretty much get along with anyone.
I've had a couple "chapters" in my life. They have made me who I am today, and for that reason, I don't have any regrets. I know myself well. I know what I like. And life is too short for a dress rehearsal. I want to meet someone who likes me for me, who wants me to like him for him, and who doesn't make life harder than it needs to be.
This portion of my profile has been brought to you by the letter "I".....
You? Well, you are who you are... And if we are a good match, then that's a bonus.
Don't wink at me. I think it's lame.
Don't send me an email that says "hi" or "you're cute". That's a reflection on your lack of creativity and thoughtfulness.
But if you like what you've read, and want to know more, you know the drill.....
