I'm funny, smart and love totally 100%. I am kind and considerate and treat people with respect because that's how I want to be treated. I am open minded and keep in mind that we all have our own unique take on the world as we perceive it.
I am a strong person! I have my own opinions and convictions. I stand up for myself. I provide for myself. I need nothing from anyone, but it would be nice to be loved. I have a lot of friends and family that no doubt love me. Some day it would be nice to add a special person to that circle of people. Someone who fills the role of friend and lover. Perhaps this person and I will build a family. Only time will tell!
I seek a person who values honesty, loyalty, respect, hard work and a good life. Someone who thinks I am worth the time and communication to make the relationship work and be long lasting. Someone funny and doesn't take themselves too seriously. I like a man who can be goofy, have fun and roll with the punches of life with some humor.
Do you have a dog? A cat? Both? Whatever! I like that! I love that! I love animals! I have a dog that has been my good buddy since he was 9 weeks old and I adopted him 11 years ago! He's great! I like someone who loves animals. They deserve love and a good life too.
A lot of my free time I spend with friends and family. I don't do the club/bar thing or go to crazy parties. I don't drink really. I might have one or two on occasion, it's a rare. I'm good to be home or someone else's home, bbq or make foods and let the good times roll. I read everything from books to online magazine and news articles. I dig tent camping. Taking it easy.
If you'd like to know anything more, feel free to message me. I'm keeping things Des Moines only. My schedule doesn't allow me to spend a lot of time traveling to anyone out of the area.
I am not looking for 'friends with benefits', 'no strings attached' or any other sort of 'casual' relationship. Please possess enough common sense to know that I am not seeking a marriage proposal from the jump or any other sort of commitment, however I am not here to waste any time by dancing around our intentions and not be on the same page. If you are looking for casual hook ups, I am not her. :-) Best of luck to you!
If you are also hoping to find a long term commitment and are trying to get to know someone first in order to get there and I appeal to you, I would be happy to.
Thank you for checking it out!
