I am a single mother by choice, had my daughter using a donor, I LOVE being a mom, it's the best decision I've made - she is so full of laughter and smiles (she's quite the flirt) , everyone says she is the happiest most smiling baby they've ever met. We like to spend time outdoors (when the weather is nice), and when it's not we spend it playing at the house, wandering around the mall, going to play areas (bounce houses and the like).
I enjoy golfing and gardening - though I haven't done it as much with a little one.. :-) I also like going to thrift stores or yard sales, finding great bargains to use or things to re-sell (I have all kinds of "awesome find" stories!). I usually put the money aside to use for trips or special purchases.
Of course I have a job that pays the bills, but I also really enjoy my line of work, it's "the perfect fit" of a job for me and I am very fortunate to have a job I enjoy going to every day and great people to work -- I have focused a lot on my career and am very self-supporting.
I think at this stage in life you have a better idea of what you want/don't want in relationships and I think they definitely take more work than they seemed to when I was younger. I was married for 7 years, separated over 12 years ago but don't have any resentments and really just don't have a lot of negativity in my life and prefer my friends to be the same (e.g. optimists vs. pessimists). Sorry but I am not interested in dating someone that is not financially stable or is just recently out of a relationship looking for an ear to listen to them grumble about their ex. I am looking for someone that would enhance my life, not add drama to in (where none currently exists).
I tend to be attracted to Caucasian and Hispanic men without facial hair, and preferably guys that don't take shirtless photos of themselves, especially in what appears to be a locker room or men's restroom with stalls in the background.. (I think it's odd men take photos of themselves in a men's restroom...). Not sure I understand the photos of people inside their car behind the steering wheel either....
