First and foremost-I love hanging out with my friends and family! I love watching hockey-definite Red Wings fan! I enjoy playing poker(Texas Hold'em) although I prefer live games rather than playing online. I like to golf-I am not good, but I enjoy doing it-those who golf with me require extreme patience and the knowledge that if I am enjoying a few drinks, I shouldn't be the one driving the cart. I love going wine tasting or weekend excursions with friends. The club scene isn't my thing, but I do enjoy listening to live music(preferably at a hole in the wall place) - rock or blues would be my choice. I enjoy spending time with my friends kicking back around a campfire or playing cards. I am a scrapbooker/crafter. I'm dabbling with refurbishing furniture. I enjoy working on my books, it is relaxing and a good time to catch up with a few of my friends. As much as I like to get together with my friends, I enjoy kicking back at home catching up on shows piling up on the dvr or reading a good book.
I am not at all opposed to dating someone with kids. I don't want anyone to get the wrong impression when I say I don't want kids. I love kids. If you have them, it's a bonus. Now that I'm 40, I am just not looking at having any babies.
I am looking for someone who is first and foremost - honest. I don't want drama or games. To be specific, if you are still dealing with baggage from a previous relationship, for example, if you are still in one, angry about one, not finished with one, I am not the one for you. I want someone who is confident within themselves and doesn't rely on others to control their happiness. I want to be with a man who is financially secure and can stand on his own. If you rely on others to support you financially, you aren't the right one for me. I am all about anyone with a sense of humor. I laugh at myself pretty easily. I am looking for someone who can balance responsibility and fun. I am looking for a partner - someone who knows a relationship is about give and take. Someone who is willing to work through the ugliness and rough patches that come up in relationships with communication and respect.
I would really like to find someone willing to go to the gym or workout classes with me. I go 4-5 days a week and it would be nice to have someone to go with.
I am happy and confident with my single life, but I think it would be more enhanced by adding someone to walk through life with me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Drinking wine and learning more about each other.
