You're men, and so far in my experience most men care about the way a woman looks more than anything else in the first steps of dating. So I am going to be straight up and say that the two full-body photos are a couple of years old and I have gained a lot of weight since then. 2015 has been a difficult year for me and I won't bore you with details here. It will suffice to say that a long recovery after surgery has taken it's toll.
And on to the more interesting stuff:
I am a nerdy, geeky, intelligent and quirky lady. Not in a magical unicorn kind of way. In a sci-fi loving, puzzle addicted, bibliophilic, colourful personality, perverted, creative, ambiverted kind of way. I have a fantastic group of supportive and geeky friends and so I can get super social, but I also have a fiercely independent streak in me where I need my space and quiet time alone.
Lately my main focus is getting my health and strength back. So I am enjoying plenty of time at the gym. I play minecraft, read, watch Netflix, socialise, sing, clean, sleep, and all the rest of the normal boring daily stuff. I like a lot of hobbies and activities. Some I rarely ever do, like drawing, others I would do more if opportunities were abundant like travel and go to events. I love journeys, especially by car or boat.
I have a few ambitions in life and most of them are modest and attainable. I want a row boat and a caravan. I want to upgrade from my borettslag leilighet to a lonely little enebolig. I want to live just close enough to civilisation that I can drive to town in 20 minutes but just far away enough that I can hang out in my garden naked and sing as loud as I like without any people around. I want to ride an air balloon, parachute from a plane, go on road trips (Europe, USA, Norway, UK, Australia), live some of my fantasies, visit The New York City Public Library, learn archery and learn more languages.
My immediate future plan is to study next year so I can change my career to something that I will find more fulfilling, but I don't want to talk about that stuff. Unless your career defines you as a person then it is of no interest, and even if it does it might still be of no interest!
I like dogs (cats are okay too) and I am looking forward to getting a puppy. I miss my German Shepherd. He loved to learn and I loved to train him. My dog was my baby in a way, although I despise people who literally treat their dogs like human babies. If you love your dog, you will respect his needs as a canine.
I have no children and I will never be able to conceive. I have some mixed feelings about this, but overall I do not want to be a mother. It's nice to spend time with other people's children and not have the responsibility and stress. I am okay with the idea of dating a man who has children, whether or not he has full custody.
I dislike cooking, but I like good food so I tolerate it and I almost enjoy it if I get the chance to show off my efforts. Who doesn't love a bit of praise for a job well done? Actually that principle applies to most dreary tasks.
To be honest I think you need to talk with me to really get to know me. You can ask me anything and feel free to write in Norwegian if it makes you feel more comfortable. I am not easily offended. I do not expect you to be psychic; I will tell you if I find the question inappropriate and so long as my boundaries are respected you can move on to the next question.
