I hate to post my pic. I don't know why but I do. I guess like most people I'd like someone to read my words and understand me. I have tried that...I received zero emails. So, I will try this again adding my pic and hope that someone likes my face and takes the time to read me.I am passionate about cooking. I think I am passionate about it because it is an accomplishment...the re are verifiable results...and of course if people enjoy it they are most positive...of course everyone enjoys my cooking!I am a news junkie, I admit this. I have learned not to believe what I read yet I still obsessively read the news.I am very passionate about animals and animal rights. I have several furry/feathered friends...they bring me joy...need I say more?I'm bright ...I think, fun...funny. I am passionate about most things. I am successful enough ...to me...I am a loyal person...if I'm in your corner....be happy..I'll back you 100%.I love family....friends... people...even people I don''t like as they at least make life interesting.Okay...a nd when Im stressed...I smoke..I admit it...keep in mind..men do all kinds of things that are unpleasant for women..I wont "notice" them... lets hope that my good qualities out weigh my bad ones..I'm human.I am adding to this....I want someone who is happy, or willing to be. I am. My life is not perfect...I have no expectations of perfection, I do want to have a relationship that is one where we will both commit to making it right for us. I seek long term and marriage ultimately. If you are separated etc...Im not the one for you. Relationships just ending are NOT the time for a new beginning. Take the time to learn and regroup...and yes..that IS all my hair. I have no clue why every guy has to ask that but...there its spelled out. If you're that rigid that you ignore everyone instant messaging you...dont talk to me...sometimes a random IM might be the start of at the very least a great or nice friendship. Please dont be so judgemental.
