Not really planning on using this online dating "service" but what the heck.. here ya go: I am a person who loves to learn about things outside of my own culture. I love to be physical and play, although I need to be coached when it comes to sports. I dig ice skating, totally become addicted to the gym once I get in there, etc. I am a person who will probably say YES to anything as long as it's safe! Except skydiving. I want to do that, but it's not exactly 100% safe. I just like to learn, and love to get outside and have fun! I also LOVE taking care of my home; I feel like my home represents the way I feel about myself and I LOVE making my home look & feel nice & inviting :)
I am interested in a man who is hard-working, who knows how to be funny in a healthy way -without being hurtful, who takes pride in being a provider and is passionate about his hobbies and the people he loves. I am interested in a man who desires to take care of me and our children, and who will let me care for him & his health & who can communicate his needs to me so that I can be the one who makes him happy. I am pretty mature and I find secrecy and tricks very unbecoming and a big turn-off. Life is full of ups and downs so there's no need to ADD drama to life as it already is challenging at times, naturally. I also take down-time very seriously, and I believe that a person who does not take breaks cannot have a truly happy life. I love traveling and I look forward to family trips! Being together for adult fun is wonderful also, once that right person comes along... I wish everyone the best of luck in their search for love!

I'm pretty old fashioned. You can ask me what I would like to do, but I mostly am concerned with WHO I am with and when it's good company we can do pretty much whatever we want. The basic stuff or anything original. This part creeps me out when people say "long walks on a beach or a moonlit anything", hah. Just ridiculous to me after a while of reading a million people saying the same thing. I know how hard it is to express yourself and try not to say things that someone else, or everyone else, has already said. We are all human, right? I just don't think you know someone unless you've been in their presence so internet "connections" are just missing something.. To me.
Most importantly, I like to be treated like a lady, so that I am able to continue to present myself as one. Thank you for taking the time for these little notes...
I have been told that I was born in the wrong time, I don't really fit in with the men/woman my own age, but it is nice to find people who have interests beyond the mainstream, and who can enjoy a theatrical play and music that isn't the top 40's or rap/hip-hop/heavy metal, etc. I LOVE learning, and that includes looking beyond what the radio stations are playing and what the news & media limits us to viewing. Although, that does not mean that I don't enjoy the mainstream stuff as well! I pick & choose to what I enjoy, and if it goes out of style I still like it; even though I'm sensitive to my environment that doesn't mean that I'm all for being molded to what the general public views as pleasant in their own eyes. I like to be original or at least try, even if I'm really not! Usually I can be coerced into something if I feel a genuine trust and compassion in my friendships.
