New to Abbotsford.
Not looking to be taken care of but would welcome being cared for and eventually loved. Yes, I said the "L" word..if that's scary for you...please stop reading now. Wanting to meet someone to do things with, I love my life and am tired of living it alone. My girlfriends are all in relationships and I'm always the proverbial "fifth wheel"...so I opt out of functions and work instead...too much I might add. It's time to get balance back in my life...work to live, not live to work as they say.
I'm independent yet don't want to go it alone. It would be nice to share my life with someone. To know I have a strong shoulder to lean on, someone I can depend on, at those times when things get overwhelming and I don't know which way to turn. Occasionally I just need a hug, and the reassurance that everything will be alright, as much as I love my Dad, it's just not the same as if it were coming from "my man". :). Would love to meet someone who wants what I do. Not looking to move in together or get married after the first date thank you but do want to share my free time with a significant other with the hope that the relationship will develop into something long term. You should like (or even better love) dogs as I have two and we are a package deal (no different than you guys with kids still at home but I can send my "kids" off to boarding camp when I want to go away on a trip, I hope you have that flexibility too). You're a little bit old school, and know how to treat a woman, you're a romantic at heart. You enjoy travel to warm tropical places when it's cold in BC, exploring our beautiful province in the spring and summer months, fishing, going for long walks/hikes (with the dogs), dining in or out, reading, playing board/card games, music (extra points if you favor R&B of the 60's, 70's, 80's), the occasional movie, preferably at home, curled up on the couch with a beverage and appies readily available. You relish the thought of sleeping until 9:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning...lol.
I am complicated in an uncomplicated way and I live a simple life. I believe in karma and paying it forward. Yes, I have my faults, but if you can't deal with me when I'm at my worst, you'll certainly not be able to handle me at my best. I give as good as I get. I am fortunate to have been blessed with both brains and beauty (so I've been told). I can be wild and crazy, calm and demure, sophisticated and classy, down and dirty, a little girl, a mature woman. I can be athletic or lazy, conservative or liberal, silly or serious. I'm hard to define and perhaps best described as a predictably, unpredictable, multi-faceted enigma.
Love your life, like I do, and be looking for some one to complement it, not complicate it.
When I look back over my life, I don't want to be one of those people who says "I wish I had", I want to be someone who says "I'm glad I did". ~ Me
I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.” - Anaïs Nin
As long as it's legal, doesn't hurt me or anyone else or involve being outdoors in really cold, rainy, dismal, dark, windy, I can't stand it anymore, I need to get out of the lower mainland weather.........I'm in :)
