I'm a RN Supervisor in Winston-Salem for a retirement community. I thoroughly enjoy my job, and feel that nursing is what I was meant to do in my life. My friends would describe me as charismatic, energetic, loyal, trustworthy, and loving. I'm the only child of divorced parents who are still good friends. I've had the same set of best friends since I was in kindergarten, and have added more to that list over the years. I'm originally from a small town in the Triad where everyone knows everyone and everyone's business. I definitely enjoy living in Winston mainly because of the size of it and the things to do in and around the city.
I'm tired of the club scene. I did that in college. Going out every once in a while is cool, but not every night. I'm looking for someone who's slightly a homebody, but does enjoy going out and doing things. I despise liars and cheaters. I have been lied to (many times) and cheated on, and it's a deal breaker. I love when someone can make me laugh, REALLY laugh. From the toes. That's always a plus.
I enjoy hiking, "day-cations" to the beach or the mountains, going to the gym or just getting outside, staying in and cooking for my family, and curling up with a good book and a glass of wine. I have a new "niece" (my best friend's daughter), and I spend as much time with her as possible when I'm not working. I've never snowboarded, kayaked, or white water rafted, and I would LOVE to.
I'm a BIG advocate for gay rights, and I'm a member of PFLAGG. I believe that gay people are still people. Period. I don't want to be discriminated against because of my eye color or my religion, so why should they be discriminated against because of who they love?
Ok, off that soapbox...
I've lost 3 grandparents to various long-term illnesses. I'm very close to my family. I talk to both of my parents almost daily, and I talk to my grandmother about 4-5 times a week. They are more than just family, they're friends. I talk to them about almost everything.
If you're interested in knowing more, just send me a message or a wink. I can't promise I'll get right back to you (I try to send messages from my computer instead of my phone... I end up making too many typos from my phone, and incorrect grammar is one of my big pet peeves), but I will get back to you. :)
