Having a plan but being flexible enough to change it is helpful in having a good life. My plan was to be so special that guys walking down the street would just know I was fantastic and hurtle bike racks to ask me out. Since this hasn’t worked, I have to change tactics and use dating websites. I also wanted to be perfect so that I’d attract a perfect guy. Instead, I have to admit to my fair share of flaws. I’d be pretty boring if I didn’t have any growing or learning left to do, and vice versa. If you’re reading this, then maybe you’re the guy who can be patient and kind and have a sense of humor as I change and who wants a cheerleader on your side for when you hit any rough spots in life.
I’ve learned that most things are negotiable, but we all have our wish lists and our deal-breakers. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. I'll tell you a little about myself, though. I need to be outside often, even if it's just sitting on my front porch. That's why I'm in Colorado and I've loved exploring this beautiful place that I now call home. My tiny town is perfect to me. I moved here from Phoenix (even though I grew up as a good mid-western girl) and I don't miss the city at all. There is so much to do here! I hike and ski, but don’t mountain bike and I think that cross-country skiing is closer to torture than to a sport. Traveling is a passion of mine. I am just as happy with a small-group tour as I am to jet off by myself to a foreign country with a Lonely Planet and a camera. I enjoy meeting people and experiencing new cultures and I've found that there are fantastic folks on every continent. Dancing at Phat Thai on First Friday is one of my favorite things to do and I would really like to meet a guy who can dance with me. I think that common interests are important to a healthy relationship, but it’s always fun to learn new things from a partner as well. I'm down-to-earth, I hate drama, and I'm caring but still a little too blunt. Even after 12 years in Alabama, I never really learned the Southern art of sugar-coating things. I'm looking for a guy to share life with. I want a travel partner and movie-night snuggle buddy and someone to hold hands with at an outdoor concert. I need someone who can be thoughtful and who can occasionally pick a daisy on the side of the bike path for me. I also realize that everyone needs their own space, so I won't even make you call me every hour on the hour to check in. If there’s anything else you’d like to know, just ask. I know I won’t be the right girl for everyone, but that’s a good thing since I’m not really big on polygamy.
I’ve tried lots of things in my life and most things have turned out great. Here’s hoping that this will too. Let the adventure begin!
