A little about me...
I see many profiles with walls already up, generic descriptions, truly lousy pictures, and nothing real about the person. Why? This is a chance to reveal something of yourself that might either attract someone or be a turn off. Who Are You? So here I go. Money is handy, but the pursuit of it can mean cold cash instead of a warm heart. Apart from your own soul searching, what's more important than finding the right person to be by your side? Not money. Friends and family is important. Career? Well...its good to like what you do. I'm definitely type B. I took a personality test years ago and I was INTP and ouch, I read a new description and it may be true or relevant to anyone considering me. I'm inquisitive by nature, and I love nature. I love living near mountains and waters. I prefer a few close friends to a lot of shallower relationships but so many are gone or too busy these days. I love to read, kayak around a lake, camp on a full moon, walk with my lady. In the past maybe romantic comedies had me looking for "her" but isn't that what you think when you feel the magic? I live in a not very populated area so this is a challenge! I do seek a local connection but also welcome a good chat no matter the distance. Serendipity?
About the one I'm looking for...
What attracts me is intellect, humor, and compassion. Humor is crucial, even if its cynical or sarcastic at times. For the genuine conversations I enjoy, intellect is important, and cruelty is never attractive. Physically? Attraction is instinctive. Gut feeling, subconscious, like art or music. This also means to feel insulted if someone doesn't find you attractive is silly, though we've probably all felt it. I'm not sure about opposites attracting each other for the long term. Maybe fun initially but possibly conflictive eventually, We don't want a clone of ourselves either or we will never grow and learn. My partner would like holding hands and watching old movies, and of course being patient when I'm being a jerk as it Will pass. And that goes both ways! Not brassy and loud but not dainty and naive. She doesn't need to be the center of attention, or a real Type A. Cute Librarian over Cheerleader every time!!!! I dislike labels but prefer sensible politics to hate politics so more blue than red. Someone who Loves being out in nature. Much more bright, funny, best friend girl next door than fashionista status seeker. Philosophical. Not a religious fanatic. Did I mention humor? Yeah, seriously! A sense of humor saves your life!
I'd just like to add...
I might as well continue.... we are here to reach out and maybe connect, so don't send a flirt, actually use words and actually say something of worth...... I like rock and roll mostly and blues, jazz, classical. Not much into Country, just too simplistic for me, and I think Rap is crappy poetry to worse music even if it does have a beat. I love animals but my last dog died and that was very tough. Still is. 14 1/2 years is a long time. I'm out of shape but want it back. I enjoy pool, cards and games, I used to love walking on the beach when I lived in Oregon. Biking, fishing but not hunting, outdoor sports w/ some restrictions (joints), so more camping than backpacking now. Walks, kayak/canoe, drives, antique/second hand stores, photography, and open to what my lady likes as well so we can grow together as a couple. I don't like slasher films, I like sci fi and comedy and drama and foreign films. Considering all the dating sites online these days, we know there are a lot of lonely people, or people who feel incomplete, in matters of the heart. Good luck to one and all and may you find what's best for you and makes you happier than you even hoped. As we get older we see time moving faster, so may you find love sooner than late

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I live in the mountains for a reason.... nature is crucial to me and my well being. I need to be near water, and moonlight is much better than neon for romance. The sound of wind in the trees, water in motion, beats planes and traffic.... I did love walking the beaches of Oregon and Washington when living and visiting there.
Music is in my head and soul much of the time... better than voices though, right? If only I could play an instrument! Rock, Jazz, Classical, Blues.... more imaginative than formulaic, but I am learning some new stuff too! No rap and not much country though.
This is really a combination choice... I try to continue to educate myself and have interests in many of the other choices listed here as areas to educate myself in! News, politics, religion, history, tech.... and how can one not choose family and friends? Restaurants? Arts? Movies? Creating? Some sports? Games? All pieces of the puzzle.
