This part is the hardest. Trying find the write words to describe myself and my ideal is hard to put in words, so here I go! :)
I am very honest and try to enjoy to the little things in my life. I am laid back and try not to sweat the small things. Life is too short! I haven't traveled much. I've been to NYC, Miami, Phoenix and Fort Myers. I want to see more! Every year I say that I'm going to take a couple weeks off to fly somewhere. Well, that's going on year 3 now. If you're into traveling, that is a definite plus! My friends and family are my solid ground. I am and blessed to have 2 nieces and a nephew. I love being an aunt and will run through fire for them.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I love the outdoors. I have to be honest, it has been almost 4 years since I have been camping and am dying to go this summer. It would be awesome to find someone that is into camping. It's great to get away and enjoy the outdoors and relax by a campfire. My favorite area to camp so far is anywhere on the North Shore. I am not much for fishing, but being on a boat in the middle of a lake is heaven to me. I love the water and can just soak in it forever. Almost every other day, I am cycling. Don't confuse me with the bright colored spandex wearing crowd that bikes 70 miles. So far I do about 23 miles and enjoy every minute of it, unless the wind gets the best of me.
I do like to go out have a couple drinks and greasy foods, but am not the clubbing type. It is fun to dress up and go to nice restaurant and have steak or sushi, but I also love going to a hole-in-the-wall joint and have a good burger. I also like to lay back and enjoy a great movie. No horror films though!
I also have 3 dogs. Don't worry, I won't be getting a 4th dog. Last year, I adopted a 11 year lab from the Humane Society because I thought it would be great to give him a good home the last couple years of his life. Needless to say, I won't be stopping at an animal shelter anytime soon! But it has been a blast having them and would not trade them for the world.
So I have all this great stuff going on and am missing that ideal man. As for what I am looking for, it's easier to list them out. Don't get all caught up if you don't fit all of them:
-Be honest. Yes many people say that but for good reasons. Trust is the base of any relationship and that can't happen if the relationship is based on lies. I want my ideal guy to be himself just as I want to feel comfortable being myself around him.
-Must like dogs. (since I have 3!)
-Don't be a champion complainer. That is a rule I apply to myself and others. I want to be able to enjoy life and not let anybody take a awesome moment and complain about how the moment is not good enough. Just enjoy what is there and appreciate what you have.
-Must take care of yourself and at least be somewhat active.
-Please have a picture of yourself on your profile and not of just your pets and landscapes! :)
-Know how to deal with problems when they come and be able to reach out to those around you. I have met many people that shut out from everybody when something happens. Life throws curveballs at you a lot.
-No strange body piercings (other than ears). I take this with a grain of salt. :)
-Be able to carry a conversation. The best conversations are two way ones!
-Have a sense of humor
