I'm intelligent, independent, I have a great sense of humor. I love dogs more than I like most people. Humanity disappoints me more than it makes me glad to be part of it. I have wide and varied interests. I'm a for real person...what you see is what you get. I have been a loner most of my life, therefore, I have difficulty conversing. I'm a greenie. Not 100%, but I'm probably 75% green. I am old school, old fashioned. I was brought up with morals, values, ethics, and still live that way. I live in the days of family values tv shows, or even family values. I cherish family, friends, friendships. I still believe in the art of talking problems out instead of using fists or guns to solve problems. I still believe that honesty is the best policy. I love politics, but not the kinds of politics we have today. I love a good debate...not arguing, debating, and if I know I'm right, I will debate until you think you can prove me wrong. I love gardening, cooking. I'm a vegan of just two years, so I'm always looking for new recipes, new products, because I still don't know of a lot of products on the market for veganism. I believe in hard work, I believe in working for what you NEED, then if you have extra finances, I believe in getting what you want. I don't believe in handouts. I've lived by doing goodwill for people. I'm a card sender, a gift giver, "just because". I love surprises, and I love to surprise. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I find it sexy and romantic that a man also wears his heart on his sleeve. I believe it is also sexy that a man can have those soft sentiments, like crying for whatever reason, or getting that "look" if I give him a card, or unexpected gift, or flowers just because I wanted to. I want a man who enjoys doing nothing if that's what I feel like doing. I've been a homebody most of my life, so I'm not used to going out just to be going out. I definitely believe in being true to yourself. I'm a jeans and polo shirt kinda girl when I go out for whatever reason, and a sweats and lounge wear kinda girl when I stay in. I'm still a hippie at heart. I run to the beat of a different drummer. I have never been one to live my life like society says I should.
