This week, we have two singles who love to be active and revel in the great outdoors. See? You already have something in common. Don’t be shy, guys. If you like them, reach out at [email protected] and tell us about yourself. Maybe you and our single can go on a raging river-rafting, spear-throwing, mountain lion-fighting outdoor adventure together. Maybe you will get caught in a rainstorm and have to survive by body heat. That sounds pretty passionate to us.
If you want to be featured or know somebody who is single and ready for romance, hit us up.
Occupation: Program coordinator for an environmental nonprofit
Sign: Taurus (“That shit is irrelevant to me.”)
Why are you putting yourself out there?I think this concept is hilarious and I don’t actually expect anything to come of it. That would be really weird if it did, but I’m open to it also. I fly by the seat of my pants.
Why are you still single?I am not really all that interested in the Durango dating scene. It doesn’t seem to offer what I’m looking for, so I really haven’t put too much effort into looking for it. I’m also very picky and very independent, and I’m not willing to waste my time on anybody who doesn’t seem worth it.
Have you ever been ghosted, or has someone ghosted you?I am sure I have. I have probably been ghosted. I’ve probably ghosted. Oops! I don’t really cling on to those sorts of memories. But generally I am more the type of person to go out on a date with a guy to tell him that I’m not interested in dating in person, because I just don’t want to do it over the phone or even through text message. I’m a very open, honest communicator.
What qualities do you look for in a person?Adventurous comes to mind, but probably more important is (someone who is) willing to let me do my own thing and be cool with having an independent woman in their life. Honesty is also big. Someone who is not your one-dimensional Durango male. I need somebody who can take me country dancing at a dive bar and also go out to nice restaurants, go backpacking, and do extreme shit…. and also read books. Things like that.
What is something about you that’s different?I’m a really excellent parallel parker and I’m from Montana. Nobody from Montana is good at parallel parking because there is no reason to do that. But actually being from Montana, that’s something I identify strongly with. That’s why I’m independent and won’t settle. Montanans have a strong identity.
Why did your last relationship end? We were both in the seasonal jobs and that took us to different places.
What is your favorite thing to cook for others? I am really good at baking scones. I used to make some really good apricot/ginger scones. I do a pumpkin/chocolate chip/walnut in the winter. Strawberry and rosemary is one of my favorite combinations.
