I am a complex person, with simple values. I believe that each person is made up of many pieces, craeted by their upbringing and experiences. Each characteristic is a piece, that when combined together, creates a unique person.
The person who would get along best with me would be an easy going, animal lover, accepting of others. As long as the foundation is there, all else can be worked out as we go along.
I am living in the City of Rochester. I got here one step at a time, but am still a little in shock that I am actually living in the City. It is convenient, so I am enjoying that aspect of my environment.
I was raised in the mountains of California, where I know all of the plants and animals. I also lived in the California flatlands, far from town. Until moving here, this is what I knew. I did not realize how much I would miss living out in the middle of nowhere. I have learned that the plants here are different and growing anything is far more challenging. I have an extensive vegetable garden, but that is the extent of it here in the city.
I moved to NY to attempt to make my then husband happy and ended up living in the City and on my own. That is now in the past.
I have decided to give NY a chance. God's Plan seems to include NY for some as yet undiscovered part of his Plan, and I am not fighting that.
My father was raised on a farm. I was raised with his simple values. I do not fit in here in the city and sometimes feel like a fish out of water. I cannot see myself living in the City forever and plan to relocate at some point. It is fine for now. I have a good life and am happy, because I choose to be happy. But, it still feels strange.
There is something missing, which, if found would make my life fuller and even happier.
Everyone says I seem younger than my years. When I try to meet someone in the real world, he is often too young for me. I would prefer someone close to my own age. I live a healthy lifestyle. I do not smoke. I will have a glass of wine or a beer occasionally, but am not much of a drinker. I am a morning person, up before light. I can stay up late if there is something that requires it, but I am not generally a night owl. I like to go to Public Market and cook and can what I purchase there. I am a good cook.
I have traditional values and have a positive outlook. I am independent, because I have to be. It is in my nature to be a partner to a man, and I am often alongside, lending a hand, if needed. I am not a tomboy, but do not mind getting my hands or fingernails dirty if that is what needs to happen.
I work full time for a Veterinarian. I love dogs, cats and other animals. I have weekends off and do not mind what others may consider a long-distance relationship (at least to start).
I am willing to try new things and can always learn something new. I go to the gym and am actively working on improving my body type - Almost "there". I am always trying to improve myself, while also accepting the way that I am right now.
I am looking for an easy going man with a good heart, who, if the chemistry is right,is willing to put effort into a relationship to make it work.
Friends first and see where it goes. I am working on developing friendships here in NY while hoping to find that special person, and am willing to accept that I may find a good just friend, the love of my life or anything in between.
