Update 10/13- if you truly "want to meet" then actually MESSAGE me ... Follow up with a text.... Set up a date.... Then perhaps show up. It's not rocket science. Sorry for the rant.
So what keeps bringing me back to the on-line dating thing? I have asked myself that same question many times. I'm seriously having doubts if this is the right venue for me. However, for those of you single parents out there in the 'dating world', I think we would all agree that at this stage in our lives... dating is not easy. As a single mom of 2 awesome kids (11 year old girl & 9 year old boy) they are my focus. But as most divorced parents, I have a split custody schedule that allows for free time. My career in teaching doesn't allow me to meet too many men... and the bar scene.... well... need I say more. I am fortunate that I can keep myself busy with my community, family, and friends. Most evenings you will find me hanging with my neighbors, by the pool or out front of my house ... serving as the 'hub' for the kids of my neighborhood. My own kids volleyball & football also keep me active along with the extra hours I dedicate to my kindergarten class.
However I do see the importance of "ME" time, so that's why I'm giving this on-line dating thing a try again. It has been frustrating. I guess timing has a lot to do with meeting someone you connect to and I mean more than just that physical attraction. I am at a point in my life that I am tired of the 'dating' scene. By no means do I want to rush into a relationship, but I am ready to find that someone special and see where it takes me.
I enjoy a wide variety of things most of them pertaining to things that take place outdoors. I grew up going camping and water-skiing/wake-boarding every summer at the river with my family. I still carry on this tradition with my own kids. Playing Co-Ed softball is also a real passion of mine. Other sports I enjoy... snow-skiing, volleyball, tennis and bowling (I haven't ever really concluded if bowling is really a sport). Oh and I play a pretty mean game of ping-pong too.
I have been an elementary school teacher for 20 years and I'm currently teaching Kindergarten. I am blessed to say that I have never once questioned my choice in my career. I truly love what I do.
My faith in Jesus Christ is a big part of my life. I do go to church every Weekend and meeting someone with that in common is important to me.
As far as new interests go, don't be afraid to ask me to try something new... I have been known to be a bit of a dare-devil. That's probably why my own mom could never go in the boat all the times I would attempt bare-foot water-skiing at the river with my dad. Hair up in a ponytail, out on the ball field, or playing on the river is what I like best. But don't you fret... I may like to get down and dirty with all the boys, but this here girl knows how to clean up and look like a lady. :-)
Starting off with coffee, conversation, and good music... maybe a night of dinner and dancing... maybe peanuts and beer at an Angel's Baseball game. I'm pretty flexible and I have a lot of interests. If you're a nice, tall, guy, with a bit of an edge... all the better. Let's be real... the chemistry must be there and if a romance comes from all of this... BONUS! :-)
