Funny thing how time flies, as I'm now 9 years single and never realized how lonely it is until now. Actually I don't think I was ready the past years to be serious about dating. too much too prove to myself, too much focus on my kids and keeping them on the straight and narrow and involved with sports and other club activities. They are 20 and 14 now, independent and not wanting Mom around too much anymore.
As for me, by background heritage is Ukrainian but truly I'm just an Albertan, who grew up on a mixed farm and still has a lot of my parents old fashion morals and values installed in me. I came to the area to raise my own children and have made home in the sandy pine areas of the Tawatinaw valley.
I am surprised by the many comments about scary women on this site, perhaps I am just too naïve to think there are so many evil ones out there. I'm not perfect, my worst is the belly jelly that contributes to the few extra pounds, but there are some underlying conditions I'm fighting against which means I have to work harder at exercise and diet, and I do have BB - an NO this is not an open call to all you BB fetishes out there. But for the one who can steal my heart, having someone to work extra harder for, and sharing the one exercise needed most, we be my ultimate motivator.
I am normal, outgoing, private and most often very shy around people I do not know, although put me in front of a crowd facilitating or singing Karaoke, you would never know that. I think I am a good judge of character, am slow to trust which is why I have a lot of acquaintances but a few I call good friends. I have a good stable career, which is not location dependant, so I could relocate if I needed to, but prefer to keep my roots out here in the country. I have no idea how city dwellers can handle neighbors 8' away on either side, just saying.
Truth be told, I would prefer meeting someone who does not have an ex-spouse in the background, kids are ok. I'm not competitive, so if your ex and older kids still have grip on you, I will just gravitate to the shadows - so I'm saying out front, if you can't focus on us - as I would be, we are probably not meant for one another.
FYI - I do not have internet at home - can't reach a tower, and cell service is crap 80% of the time - so I'm not usually tied to a computer or my cell phone - and that means I am slow to respond. If I feel it's right I will share my number with you so we can talk or text - but if you don't have a picture to share - it's a no go. I am also blown away about vehicle references on some profiles - just so we are clear - I do not have a car - I drive a truck! F150
I really want to find my next partner for life. Life is short enough to waste it alone. Once bitten twice shy - but we all deserve second chances.
So here it goes, gonna play paintball...we'll set a course up in the back forty for my son and his friends - not a cheap investment, but I made sure i bought a marker for me too. I can still emember the first time i ever played - that was ions ago - well - cheers to the welts!!
Going to get inked, first timer, just a little tribute to my kids.....keep tellin myself - Don't Back Down!
coffee, walk, movie, karaoke, golf, football or baseball game. Camping, fishing, boating....
