okay dudes here's the oversimplified scoop--
i'm a super laid back super nice, super funny, super quirky, super smart, super kind, super passionate, super creative girl. i've resisted boxes my entire life so trying to fit into one now is a challenge. but since i signed up for the game, i'm doing my best to play along-
my super special secret talent is my ability to see the beauty and goodness in others and the world around me. this is what makes me successful at my job (i'm a photographer who travels around the country working with medium format film), and it also makes me pretty good at life (did you like that overly confident general statement? ha).
i believe in kindness and authenticity. i believe there are people in this world carrying around bits of the same soul as you are and when you meet them you'll know it right away.
i believe in getting a world education as well as a formal one. through traveling and experiencing life outside of your comfort zone.
i'm honest and open, accepting and forward. i don't play games and i don't like to waste time, so you might find yourself caught off guard when i say exactly what's on my mind.
i have always prided myself on being different from most girls, well most people if you want the truth. mostly, less dramatic ;) i'm not crazy or thoughtless, but i find myself bucking convention more often than not. i'm looking for someone who is similarly open minded, but who above all, has a good heart, and a sharp mind, rooted in ceativity.
its totes not coming across in my painfully serious sounding write up (note ironic use of the term totes), but my sense of humor is rad, and i'm quick to banter. you'll either get a kick out of my dry wit or not notice it at all which in a way is even funnier. you can bet i will be smiling to myself on the inside.
i'm looking for a best friend. someone i can laugh and get real with. i want a guy who will talk bands, movies and fashion with me. someone who likes to be active and get out in nature, but is also fine spending an evening home, eating good food and drinking wine. integrity is key. i need to know you are a down in your bones good human being with a tender heart and shiny soul. that doesn't mean you need to wear it on your sleeve, but at your core those qualities must be present.
i need to have amazing physical chemistry with my partner. the kind of stuff in love stories that will make you blush.
full disclosure, i do have 3 beautiful children and i'm divorced. my ex is an amazing man and my parenting partner who i split custody 50/50 with so whoever i date must respect that. however, unless we get serious you won't hear much about my babies as i am extremely protective and private with their tender little hearts.
