The one thing I am passionate about...
I feel that being respectful, happy, trustworthy, honest, faithful, compassionate, adventurous, and spontaneous are the basis of a fulfilling and lasting relationship. I am interested in finding someone who wants and believes in the same. I am always there for family and friends through any situation. I am passionate about caring and putting a significant others opinions and feelings into decisions that are made in a relationship.
I typically spend my leisure time
Given the opportunity, I would be most happy jumping on a motorcycle, riding a few hours and finding a great spot to do some fishing. Otherwise, being in a boat on a lake, small or large, fishing in the sunshine or the rain is a great day for me. Snowmobiling up north is a perfect winter alternative. Anything outdoors is a plus.Dancing-country, swing, and ballroom have become a great and enjoyable activity. Close friendships & healthy exercise have been gained through this.It's hard to pick one specific thing because I like so many activities-camping, socializing with friends, walks, cooking/baking, bowling, running/lifting.
The most influential person in my life has been
Integrity is very important. A lot of who a person is can be shared by the type of integrity they have. Honesty and core values are important to me since I try to live my life by the golden rule. I think the true and lasting qualities of a relationship are mutual respect, trust, and unconditional love. My profile tells a lot about who I am and what I love. I am looking for someone who is ready for a genuinely enthusiastic life and ready to give it in return.
The first thing people notice about me
The most noticable thing is my ability to talk to a new person as if we have known each other for years. My smile, laughter, and sparkling eyes seem to make people feel comfortable around me. Even though I can talk to any new person instantly, I also have a very quiet side. I am just as comfortable in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt as I am in a formal dress.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I seem to only have time for the newspaper and mail. New vehicle manual-does that count?
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Close friends and my kids. All are respectful, honest, supportive, fun, and like to live life to the fullest.
- I am a happy, silver lining to every grey cloud, glass is half full person.
- The ability to think outside the box and see people for whom they really are even at this point in life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I have a very soft, quiet, sensitive side.
Friends Describe me as
Happy, Intelligent, Loyal, Outgoing
A little more about me
I grew up in WA state & moved to MN in 1985.I have an eng degree and love to have intelligent conversations but also love life and all it has to offer on the fun side. My favorite movie is Tombstone and I love how the lead actress has such a zest for life as I do. Golf(occasionally), horseback riding, dancing in the moonlight, travel, couch time with someone, and wine by the fire watching a snowstorm in a cabin up north are some of my favorites.
