The one thing I am passionate about...
I've recently found in my professional life that I have a passion for helping others and making a positive difference in their lives. I've always been this way in my personal life and tend to find people find me very easy to talk to - I often get life stories from people who are essentially strangers! I believe that when you touch someones life, whether for 5 minutes, or 5 years, that touch is forever and it is up to you to make that touch positive or negative.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am very into photography - having fun with it, not into who has the best equipment, biggest lenses and knows more terminology! Mostly outdoor photography. I love anything outdoors (which almost always includes a camera)! Especially geocaching, exploring new places, and definitely love wandering beaches (and some creeks) looking for treasure (beach glass, pottery, lucky stones, just interesting bits that wash up). I love to do things artistic - coloring, photography, zentangle (a specialized type of doodle - google it), creating something out of nothing...
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
Lol! The red hair really is #1! Other than appearance I'd say my dry, snarky, almost British sense of humor and overall quirkiness.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Shada, by Douglas Adams.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family being close and strong in my life.
- Going through hell and coming out stronger
- Beer (can't always be serious!)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Don't assume I don't know I'm weird and tip-toe around it - I embrace my weirdness and excel at it!
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Energetic, Loyal, Sweet
A little more about me
I have a past - not all bad, not all good, but never boring! I have an ex-husband who I still talk to - it was an amicable split. I come with baggage - but who doesn't have at least a small suitcase worth? I do not have, do not want, nor will I have a serious relationship with someone who has kids. I'm looking for friends, maybe benefits, romance, love, and - most important - honesty.**Update - I have found this dating app to be quite useless and don't expect much. I put my money and time into it, so I'll see it through - but I have zero confidence in their "matching magic". I'm counting more on luck!
