I'm not willing to settle this time around. I was married to the wrong person for 11 years (can't say I didn't give it an honest shot). I'm in a good place right now, I don't "need" to find someone. I'm enjoying life and taking it in stride. I am a relationship type of girl, dating is foreign to me. However, I love meeting people and making new friends. So, if we have a lot in common and we become friends, maybe we'll find the connection of a lifetime. Ultimately I'm looking for a very rare type of connection. I'm sure there's a ton of people on here who are good enough and we'd live happily ever after. I want more than that. I want true happiness, a connection that makes your soul dance, and I'm willing to stay single until I find it.
I can easily fit into any situation (like a chameleon). I have a lot to say but I will not fight for the floor unless it's important. I love observing people. I see the world slightly different than everyone else. My whole life I've been told I'm an old soul, often by complete strangers. I choose to find the positive side of people or bad situations. In the last few years I've dealt with more loss than I hope most people will encounter in their whole lives. It has made me appreciate life even more though and I'm constantly very aware that life is short and we need to appreciate the people in our lives as much as possible.
So, here's the deal, I'm pretty awesome, really it's true! :) I'm a fabulous combination of brains, wit, curiosity, friendliness, optimism, sarcasm, physical mental strength. I am fairly lighthearted, but I am also very serious when needed. I'm strong under pressure, I'm the person you want next to you in an emergency. I'm the person friends and family turn to for advice. I have an analytical brain. I am extremely honest, probably too honest at times. I can candy coat things if needed but I don't have it in me to lie. I take very good care of the people in my life, way better than most. I even give my co-workers shoulder massages.
I can hold a conversation with almost anyone about nearly anything. If you have a subject that I'm totally clueless about, I'll be eager to learn something new.
I've started doing a lot of the things that I've always wanted to do but never made the time for. I joined the outrigger canoe clue (love it! great workout on the water), I started riding my fancy road bike again and work out on the regular basis. I've always spent so much time looking after everyone else that I left nothing for me. I've learned to take time for myself now and I'm much happier. I've had my eye on indoor rock climbing, I think that will be my next challenge.
I'm not a girly-girl (feminine yes), you won't find 50 pairs of shoes in my closet and 100 purses. I have what I need to look nice. Although, I do like getting pedicures, so maybe I'm a little girly, just not in the annoying ways. I know my way around a garage and car (more than the average girl at least). I love old cars, car shows make me happy! I'm also a bit of a techy.
The type of people I invite into my life.....Positive, good energy, goal oriented, fun, healthy lifestyle.
I have all types of friends, but I have removed people who are always negative. Wise people have always said you become like the people you surround yourself with, so choose carefully....
Side thought: The body type question has me puzzled. I'm curvy (hour glass shape) but curvy to me sounds fat, so I didn't choose it. I'm athletic but not toned like a body builder. Thus the reason I chose "average" body type.
