I moved to Southwest Florida less than a year ago. I have yet to be impressed. It was for a big girl job. But I will do my time here. Experiences are better when shared, so I'd like to have someone to have experiences with. I've realized taking things slow is best. Having the friend base is key. Then if the romantic connection is there too, even better.
I drink copious amounts of coffee and am really into the outdoors, but not in a dirty hippie kind of way. At any moment I'd rather be outdoors backpacking, hiking, camping, kayaking, chasing bears, running through sprinklers, or really just outside in any capacity. I enjoy distance running. I would rather be in the mountains or desert than at the beach. Then why do I live in Florida, you ask? I have bad karma, apparently.
I like craft beer and I've hitchhiked before. I'm good at fixing things with duct tape. I'm quiet at first, but I open up and at that point I am rather silly. I don't have a microwave. I'm a pretty decent cook. I make an attractive omelet.
I grew up in Northern Mexico and went to college in Seattle, WA, and again in Philadelphia, PA. I miss the mountains, and seasons. I try not to worry about things I have no control over, which is mostly everything. I adapt quickly to my surroundings. I like adventures, no matter how big or small. I like exploring new places and doing new things. I live my life through a series of contradictions. For example, I'm a huge planner even though I'm extremely spontaneous. I'm responsible, but not serious. I am a hopeful cynic. I'm salty on the outside, but sweet on the inside. I am a violent pacifist. I'm the most apathetic caring person you'll ever meet. I'm pretentious, but not entitled. I'm an excellent Scrabble player, but I'm a terrible speller. I like shoes, but I don't like wearing them.
I like people who are sincere, and who are passionate and ambitious. I'm looking for someone who is going places in life. I am looking for someone who is smart, educated, responsible and attractive. I have no interest in people who smoke or do drugs. Someone with a good sense of humor, who is a little weird, but knows how to act normal. Finally, someone outdoorsy. I am looking for someone extraordinary, and who smells like rich mahogany. I want to find love, but I would rather be alone than settle.
Oh, and if you initiate an email and just say hi, or hi, how are you, or something equally ridiculous that doesn't facilitate a response, I will not respond.
