Much to my mother's suprise ("when are you going to find a nice boy and settle down?") I've managed to live my single adult life successfully and even happily. School and my career have been my priorities up to this point, and my job as a nurse has allowed me to live in different cities and learn a great deal about myself and what's important to me. I don't feel that I need a partner to complete me, but I would love to find someone to share all the amazing things this world has to offer. I've played all the relationship games only to find that there's no winner. I'm looking for someone who is real, and flawed, and who wants to face life together laughing hysterically through most of it.
I work crazy hours in a crazy environment so I like my downtime to be relaxing, fun, and drama free. I enjoy camping, kayaking, live music, wine tasting, and random adventures. I am incredibly blessed to have amazing people in my life and I try to spend as much time surrounded by friends as I can. I love to entertain and I prefer my guest rooms to be full instead of empty. I love kissing and holidays and seasons and all weather except wind and sunsets and coffee and music and campfires and meaningful silence and suprises and secret smiles and laughing until tears are running down my face. I can't stand the sound that styrofoam makes and I am afraid of clowns. I love the sound of a football/baseball/basketball game on TV when I cook in the kitchen (it reminds me of my dad who is one of the best people on earth). My dogs are spoiled rotten and always will be.
I have an incredibly sarcastic and twisted sense of humor (my idea of a good time is an unstable unpredictable ER patient who makes me want to cry/laugh/call the police all in the same moment) so I am looking for someone who loves to laugh and doesn't take life too seriously. I've been accused of being independent, so I need a partner who wants to maintain his own interests, allow me the space to maintain mine, who can learn when to pull me close and when to step back... I'm not that girl who will freak out over a boy's night out or a bachelor party in Vegas, and if your best friend since second grade happens to be a woman then great! I hope to be her friend too. I understand that everyone has a past and I'm not here to judge you on your baggage, nor do I plan on bringing mine into a new relationship.
I wish you the best in all that you do and I hope that you find what you're looking for. Keep well and be blessed.
