A little about me...
I have lots of "sides": I am active and like to participate in and watch many sports; I like to read, travel and watch movies; I was raised on a farm and enjoy space, nature, snow, green things; I am loyal and trustworthy and committed to what I do. I am generally a positive upbeat energetic person . I value tradition but also look for new experiences. I love Kansas State altho' I didn't go to school there.
I like blue grass, the blues, Irish music, and ballads and am open to other styles.
About the one I'm looking for...
I value honesty and someone who is up front; I would hope that my partner would value health and financial stability; I feel I have lots of "types" just not the hard-partying kind. I would really appreciate someone who looks for the best in others and things, not a "negative nancy".
I need someone: who can explain the back story to LOTR for me when I watch the films; who wants to go to Juneau and/or Honolulu w/ me as I am trying to run in all the capitals and those are among the 12 I have left; who will go to a drag show w/ me or a roller derby competition (things I've never done!) and other things that are maybe-only-do-once events;
I'd just like to add...
I try to admit when I just "don't know" and then try to find the answer or find out more about myself. I feel I am a work in progress even at this age. As a high school teacher I get my eyes opened all the time which helps me keep thinking forward altho' I joke I am "amish going on mennonite" when it comes to adopting technology, etc. I think differences can help grow a relationship, as long as they are the right kind - like jig saw pieces that complete each other, complement.

My Top Interests:
And Sports: I work out several times a week - have more time some seasons than others. But I like sports in general - I participated in high school and college, and coach currently. I like watching kids develop, and learn to love the same activities I do. I like to participate as well as spectate. H.S., College, Pro, Olympic - doesn't matter. Not a big fan of the "noisy" sports though (motorized). Winter is no problem - I like seasons!
I do see a lot of movies - I usually rent or get from Library and watch in comfort of home at convenient time. Haven't succumbed to Netflix yet. I keep a list of the ones recommended by reviewers and friends - not so much horror but about everything else, including foreign language. Some are duds - most are entertaining, interesting and sometimes educational.
Nature and Outdoors
I work at a summer camp in Michigan - live within inches of mother nature. I like seasons, travel, I'm trying to run in all the state capitals; I like history, cities, parks, off-the-beaten path stuff, festivals. I want to bike tour Italy sometime (might be too hilly) so perhaps the Netherlands! Just realized a year or so ago that I'm never going to get around to doing all the things I want to do...that is sobering. Dang bucket lists...
