Updated February 2015:
I am full of life, love to meet new people, love to talk and figure out what makes a person tick woman; but most of all I want to connect with people because I rarely meet a stranger. Being outdoors enjoying this wonderful world makes me happy... let's go camping, swimming, biking, walking or to an outdoor concert. My job is great and a blessing after three years pursuing my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I currently work with adoptive families as they make the most of becoming forever families to kids from hard places.
As you see on my profile, I am definitely looking for someone to date regularly and eventually I want to be in a committed relationship with a great man. This guy will be strong yet able to compromise, wise yet not a know-it-all, have structure but also be easy-going, like a schedule but be open to change in the moment if something exciting comes up, adventurous yet stable & trustworthy, and looking for a truly equal partner who values me.
My life is full and drama-free and I would like someone to share it with who would be my equal while we challenge each other to grow!
I have adult children... one who lives in FL with my grandson and one who is my roommate while he finishes college I took about 17 years away from the dating scene to raise my wonderful children. Now that they are both happy and great young adults making a positive impact on their world; I can focus on finding my happy ending.
I have many friends... white friends, black friends, mixed race friends and friends who have color in their family. I love and respect everyone exactly the same and don't discriminate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion or feelings on the subject and can surely date anyone they like but just know that dating me would mean accepting my colorful world.
I'd love to hear more about you! There is so much more to get to know so just ask!! I look forward to meeting you. :-) If you want to meet me, message me so I will know. Let's find out if we have things in common. :-)
Please email me if you'd like to know more. Writing a few paragraphs can really only scratch the surface of who someone is!
I think the answer for this question would be something to discuss with my date but if left totally up to me I would prefer to have a nice dinner together with plans to then "play things by ear" as to whether we go listen to jazz music, take a walk in the moonlight, bowl a few games or just linger over coffee and dessert. Each date and each person is unique so just spending time talking to find out more is great. I prefer that first dates be simple so that neither person feels uncomfortable and can just relax and let their real self shine. What night is good for you? :-)
