I'm kind, creative and silly. I am looking for someone who is the same as well as confident, fun loving and knows the importance of being kind and loving. I also like the outdoors as well as relaxing (gardening, projects, hanging on the porch) at home. I love the beauty of NM and I am looking for someone to share exploring more of it.
If I'm not outside I feel like I'm missing something. I was a 'health nut', someone who actually went camping and hiking, when I lived on the east coast. Then I moved out west where the Uber-Athletes live and I'm not one of them but I'm OK with that- I still go hiking and camping but on a 'normal' level. I'm not a morning person so I don't do, say, 10 mile hikes before 9 am at which time I need to be at a volunteer meeting. I can plan to be up and out early but it's usually 10 the earliest otherwise.
I'm an introverted artist (are there any other kind?) and I work full-time with 49 other people, 5 of whom I supervise. We have a ton of 'challenging' questions to answer every day so my 'me' time is very important to me. But I make the schedule so I can take off when ever I want (yeah, right) within reason. I used to draw paint-gave that up for photography-gave that up for gardening and landscaping in the high desert (think blinding intense sun and cement-like dirt) I like the challenge (of finding cactus the wildlife won't eat!-just lost another 2 plants to the brid's stomachs). I do still have 'photo shoot' days if there's something interesting going on: a fall hike, a good snowfall - though I can't be bothered with settings and such - actually I have a block about that. I'm-a-point-and-shoot-and-hope-for-the-best-kinda girl. Of course I feel drawn to paint the mountain lately. It will hang in my bathroom so when I'm in the tub I can pretend I have a larger window with a geat view of said mountain. Is that a proper resaon to do art? I like to write but I don't really think I'm that great (though I'm not supposed to verbalize that) and as soon as I can figure out a way to see the screen on my lap top outside in the sun I will finish my books.
Eating well is important to me: I'd rather spend money on gourmet (better than I can cook), healthy (if you can find it) food than a lot of crap. I drink green drinks all the time and I like them. When someone goes out to dinner with me and our food arrives my dining companion usually says: "That looks GOOD." meaning what I got looks better than theirs. It's your body. And, no, you can't have mine. ha,ha. Though there were times it was good to be part of a couple in similar situations.
I was 'retired', as some people think owning a sailboat is 'all white sandy beaches' - it's really NOT, and traveled for 5 solid years so I feel pretty content right now to be here working and exploring NM. But I have Gypsy blood and there are places I'd like to go someday- I find traveling more fun with someone special.
I am looking for a potentally serious relationship. No one night stands or Serial Daters.
