First and foremost, Please be who you say you are....If you feel you have to fabricate your life to look better or sound more interesting, I'm definitely not the girl for you....You can't build a relationship starting out on a lie, be it small (your height) or your occupation (You don't have to be rich)....Just be honest and everything will fall into place...Also, I'm not looking for a "hook-up", friends with benefits, or someone who is married. Ok..Sorry, had to get that out of the way! I digress.... ;)
I am a confident, educated, loyal, and down-to-earth mother of two wonderful kids (17 & 20). My friends would describe me as funny (I absolutely LOVE to laugh), kind/caring, understanding, trustworthy, patient, independent, successful and empathetic (almost to a fault- I'm always rooting for the underdog). I tend to be a little bit shy at first, but warm up quickly with the right company.
I have a wonderful job that I absolutely love, but have spent entirely too much time focusing on my career up to this point. I have to finally put my personal life first and I'm looking to live life to the fullest. I have a strong desire to try new things. Anyone up for exploring what this world has to offer?
Also, I absolutely love animals, so you must too! I currently have two dogs and two cats. I'm also a "foster parent" at the SPCA and can have a new dog, puppies, or kittens at any time.
What I'm looking for:
My ideal match would be a non-smoker, be easy to talk to and have a focus in life. I am looking for a man who has a sense of humor, a love for children and animals, and a heart of gold. I am looking to start out as friends first, then possibly more if that's the direction we choose to take.
I'm looking to date a caucasian male (sorry, personal preference) who is taller than me. Someone who is willing to give as much as he receives. Someone who is considerate towards others and their feelings. Someone who is willing to put in the effort to make a relationship work.
Also, I have just recently started trying to live a more healthy lifestyle. I would love to find someone who I can be active with (hiking, kayaking, etc).
**UPDATE (9/2013)** I am still recovering from a broken kneecap- Although it happened earlier this year, I am still having some issues. I have just started going back into the gym and working with a personal trainer for knee rehab....
In addition, and just to clarify, I put "not sure" about having more children. That in no way means I wouldn't consider having more kids if the opportunity arose...It would just have to be with the right guy. ;)
There's definitely a lot more to me than what I could possibly write in this profile, so if I've sparked your interest in the least, please don't hesitate to send an email. I've very easy to talk to.... :)
** I have been single for quite some time now ( I'd like to say by choice since I'm not willing to settle, but it's probably more that I haven't really put myself out there to find the man of my dreams) and I feel that I'm finally ready to find the right guy to start a friendship with and see if there is a possibility for me....Message me, what have you got to lose? **
Good luck in finding what you're looking for... :)
