The basic info: I’m a friendly, cuddly, flirtatious extrovert, and decidedly not monogamous (but ethical about it, thanks).
I have two college degrees, two teenaged boys and one big one (26!!)
I’m a card-carrying IT Technician, which career is completely unrelated to the aforementioned college degrees.
I was married for 19-1/2 years to my high school sweetheart, and am grateful to be free today (also grateful to have made it through the divorce still keeping a moderately friendly working relationship with my kids’ dad)
The good: I'm "pretty bright" as a truly brilliant friend told me recently. (Mind you, that’s “pretty bright” in comparison to him, to the unwashed masses I’m 99th %-ile smart, by golly.)
Sometimes I'm pretty funny. I definitely like to laugh, and it's really easy to make me do it.
I'm a good friend, loyal, supportive, and accepting.
I try to always tell the truth, even when it complicates life* . .and sometimes it REALLY does. As a corollary to this, I hate insincerity, mind games and B.S.
The challenges: I've got ADHD which helps explain why I tend not to "live up to my potential."
*Like I said above, I try to always tell the truth. I’ve learned over the last year though, that sometimes I'm too honest and open, and very easily I shoot myself in the foot.
NOTE: about my username. There is NOT a person named Kindred and I'm not his or her girl. I used to be in a wonderful alt-country/bluegrass/folk band, and we are called The Kindreds. I was the only "girl" in the band. Hence the name.
