Howdy~ Ok, so this profile-writing stuff is for the birds. I'm sure you can relate. But, having grown up in Texas, "Howdy" seemed like a good way to pull in a new reader. About me: I moved to Denver in 1998. Been here ever since with the exception of my 1 year stint living in my van and parking in various parts of the country. I don't think I'd call myself a hippie; just like to get outta dodge here and there. Most of my fam is all back in TX but I have a great network of friends here in CO. I'd say that I'm truly open to most new experiences. I have a weak stomach these days, but oddly, I think I would skydive. People who've done it tell me that it's more like floating than falling. But maybe they're just saying that because they have sick senses of humor and want to put me through the same hell that they experienced. I'm hoping its not the latter.
I work in the field of developmental disabilities. I've worked in many different roles w/ this population and I really love it. I venture into other things from time to time (writing, made some short films that hopefully are not garbage, etc) and I stay open to new opportunities as they appear. Never know what's around the corner. I can't stand doing the same exact job for very long. Variety is a necessity for me.
I read a ton, at least half of which one might find in the "self-help" or "personal growth" section of the bookstore. I imagine you're now thinking "crap, what a total flake," so let me qualify that. It keeps me honest - understanding myself and how I fit into the world (and how my actions affect others) are concepts that are very important to me. Now you must be thinking "my God, she is incredibly deep and wise beyond her short years on this earth. Not to mention very attractive." You are right on both counts (ha).
I'm looking for a guy who really likes being around other people; he is not afraid to be himself even when he comes off as an idiot. Not an insult, by the way. I totally appreciate someone who's willing to make a fool of himself, though I hope he doesn't do it by taking his pants off in public. Sure, a naked man in public is really funny, as long as he's not my date.
Of course, I'm hoping you are attractive, intelligent, laugh at my jokes, have a career/job you enjoy, like to learn, and dig being monogamous.
Don't be shy-
