Date a soulmate from El Portal, United States. I would be described as friendly, sensitive, a good sport, hermit, loyal to family, friends, co-workers. I love music of most kinds, sorry, no polka, and am not into egos or power trips. I love to garden and wish I could do it more. Looking for someone who wants to go places, hike, movies, cook, concerts, snort some fresh pine-scented air. Must have an intellect to support a decent sense of humor, doesn't always have to be "on and entertaining" and can laugh and sometimes tear up with me. Prefer strong, outdoorsy, but knows how to get around in a kitchen or even a vacuum cleaner. I am actually quite content to live where I am so am taking things super cautiously-don't take my hesitation personal! Too, I feel relationships are best grown out of a strong friendship, over time, so I pursue this route with major hesitation but remain hopeful. I'm not perfect, but a decent person and am on here, so you must be too? Plz don't bother contacting me if you're in your 50's or 60's & have said you're looking for women 30 on up! Sometimes I love to talk a lot, sometimes I just want to be quiet. Have taught English & French and currently working with pre-schoolers, loving it!My own children are more important to me than anything & if they thought I should cancel this account, I'd do it in a heartbeat, but they want their mom to be as happily ever after as possible...so here I go!
