Hey there... looking to start out rather slow and see what happens. The last thing I want to do is rush into a whirlwind romance or see each other 24/7 right away. Nothing wrong with seeing someone once a week (or thereabouts) and looking forward to the next time you see the person you "click" with. I am looking to meet relationship minded people though. I'm on here to meet someone special that could eventually turn into something lasting... not to waste time with people unwilling to ever choose what they want because there's just too many options. Aah, the beauty of OC sometimes, huh? :-) And I know, I know... women are just as guilty of the " bigger-better-deal" syndrome as men are, but I'm not here to date women, so I'm referring to men that do it. LOL
The first thing that comes to mind to tell you about me is that I'm an idealist. I truly want to make the world a better place. I am passionate about environmental causes and climate change and would like to find someone whose at least open-minded to these subjects. I'm not saying that you have to go chain yourself to anything or march in rallies with me on the weekends (smirk... I don't march in rallies), but someone who has a ton of apathy toward our planet and what is happening with the environment may not be well suited for me. And please, no email telling me climate change is a farse please. I totally get that you feel that way... but I'm past pulling pigtails and kicking me in the shins to get attention. haha. If you are strongly on the right, we are probably not a match. I've probably just ruled out 70% of Orange County men. :-) I'm very much into Green Living but you don't have to be. I don't shove my opinions down anyone's throat (although I used too, ha ha).
I am extremely honest and open about everything. The most important thing to me is being able to communicate well with someone. To understand and be understood.
I have a serious side and a free-spirited playful side. I have a dry quick wit and I love a guy with a great sense of humor. Especially in those moments when I'm taking myself a bit too seriously... someone who can throw me back into the shallow end of the pool once in awhile, is an asset. I would describe my personality as being a bit of a homebody. When I'm out in public, I'm very outgoing and social, but I prefer one on one moments or very small groups of people to a crowd scene any day.
I want someone who is passionate about life. I don't care if your passionate about your underwater basketweaving class, as long as your passionate about something, and you make me feel it too. It seems like I come across a lot of people who have lost their passion. Have we really lost the ability to "feel" things deeply? My idealistic side sure hopes not. I think passionate people are far and few between in this world. We could use a few more.
Also, I hate to say this but I have to. Please don't send me messages about your huge house on the beach and your lucrative businesses that you own. It is NOT my thing (and yes, I have to say this because I get those types of transparent messages). I'll take a poor guy with a heart of gold over a rich one who is jaded ANY day. I try not to judge... but keeping up with the Joneses and the materialistic mentality that is so prevalant in this county holds ZERO interest for me. If you find that money and "things" have become extremely important to you, maybe there are other girls out there better suited for you than me. I want to meet someone who is GENUINE, enjoys the simple things in life and has a good heart, so if you've managed to hold onto these things on your way up the ladder, then great, maybe we'll get along. If not well... I wish you luck in your search :
