Hello! I am kind, honest, smart, loyal, compassionate, faithful, responsible, inquisitive, goofy at times, down to earth, have a good head on my shoulders, very caring with a big heart. I am independent and have supported myself for a decade - so I am not looking for someone to support me....only someone to share and grow my life with. Someone to expand my horizons and to try new things with. I am not a woman who is afraid to speak her mind and when I am passionate about something or someone, I'm not afraid to show it! I'm not into games or causing drama... there are too many other things to worry about in life and life is too short anyway!
My family is very important to me, and I hope to meet someone that values and appreciates their family as well. I hope to be blessed with children of my own one day, but until then I am enjoying watching my friends' children grow and celebrating their milestones with them. I have always liked kids, so I am open to dating someone that already has children.
I'm seeking companionship with someone who can go out and have a good time but can also relax at home after a long day at work. Someone capable of intelligent conversation, with a good sense of humor, and values similar to mine. Also, I believe that ANY relationship, whether it be friendly, social, dating, or intimate, must have HONESTY and COMPASSION at its core. If those things don't exist it is always difficult to grow in that relationship. So, to sum it up.... if any of this pertains to or appeals to you - send me a message and we'll take it from there!
****UPDATE**** If the most you can come up with when you message me is "hi" or "how r u" - or even a combination of the two...let's save ourselves the trouble. If that is the case we are not a good fit for each other, so we each might as well spend our time fishing in another part of the lake ;-)
Something low-key, in public, that affords us a chance to talk and get to know each other (I.E. not a movie!). There are many other things to do, but you have to be able to talk first and see if there's even a chance of getting along before all the other stuff! For the "REAL" first date, I would say my ideal would be getting dressed nice and going somewhere for a romantic dinner... followed by a walk or sitting somewhere together watching the sunset.
