I'm not paid member, so please don't be offended- I can't read your email and I can't email you back. I may have even winked at you. Yes, I meant it! LOOK closely, read about me... you'll figure it out... I'm kind of shy, you might have to make the first move.
I'm looking for a friend or more to hang out with: dancing, volunteering, hiking, game night, etc. Please find my FACE on that social network. Check out my BOOK of travel photos (loads of photos) as I l-o-v-e to travel and plan on doing much, much more! I have 2 psycho Boston Terriers, CELENA is sweet but hyper, MORGAN is reserved but snuggly. I may have to find another home for them in the future, but they're definitely a big part of my life right at the moment.
I am VERY independent and keep myself busy most of the time, so obviously I'm better suited to planned events.
I am not gorgeous, just handsome, I like to stay in shape and keep things simple & unpretentious. I'm not really girly, I mostly wear scrubs or workout clothes, so I rely on help for fashion from those more talented in that area. I am a mother of a 19 y/o daughter away @ college most of the time, and a 21 y/o daughter almost done with college and doing well out there on her own.
I need to know that the people I care about are there for me, to feel supported and loved but I also need the space and freedom to be the unique person I am.
I like to imagine myself being that lovable pet who comes to you, checking in - making sure all is well... jump onto your lap and cuddle, loves to joyfully play and comically entertain, learns skills quickly (especially when rewards are involved), entertains itself- has it's own routine independent of and without interference to yours, always curious... but try and hold the pet down -force it to behave against it's nature, make it stay put for too long against it's will... that pet will be less likely to return for affection and play... or to return at all. I'm a free spirit, loyal and enjoy making people happy... but will not have my generosity or kindness taken advantage of or taken for that matter...it has to be freely given of my own will. I think this is a basic want and need of most people, but rarely discussed. I know there are some out there who would rather have a friend or mate who is attached to their side at all times, or maybe someone who is more subservient or needy, but I am not interested in being that person nor having that in my life.
I like to volunteer, to enjoy life, I can sway from simple (reading magazines @ the bookstore) to extreme (skydive, scuba, rock climbing, etc., whatever affordable thrill you can throw @ me) in activity level.
I like to eat the pizza out of the box, but possess and demonstrate social graces for the most elegant event... even if it might require more work for me to get girlie-fied than most. I usually wear scrubs for work or athletic clothes...
I was raised as a metro-suburban-hippy in Eugene, Oregon. I enjoy yoga, being active, appreciating the things in life that were hard-earned and that which was generously given without expectations. I enjoy moments to myself for reflection / growth and give space for others to enjoy the same. I will always strive to express kindness to myself and others.
