I'm a head-in-the-clouds, down-to-earth, come from the country, live in the city kind of girl. I like a man with an IQ in the triple digits that isn't a smart-ass, who likes to monkey around but isn't a total ape, who's old enough to not have to babysit, yet young enough to not be my surrogate dad. Someone who understands that in any relationship, respect, trust and communication are most important. Friendship is the basis in which I begin all relationships. I like to spend a fair amount of time together but keep my own life as well. I have a 12yr old son, who is my heart walking around in this world. I can only hope to meet someone who can not only be my best friend, but a good role model for my son as well, since he needs to learn respect, honesty and good values from the people in his life. If a man doesn't exemplify the traits I want my son to have as a grown man, then he wouldn't be the right one for us.
I love to have fun and relax. Love singing and goofing around. Like getting out to new places and trying new things. My friends say I have 2 modes: Chill and Go. I'm either relaxing or doing 3 things at the same time (so you can either jump in and help or stay the hell outta my way). I love conversations about any and all things, although I do tend to be a little wordy when it's a topic I'm really interested in. I'm a very physical person: snuggling, pda, holding hands, backrubs, lots of sugars, etc. I'm usually in a good mood and joking around, unless I'm really busy with something, then I get focused and quiet. I have a sarcastic, somewhat dark sense of humor and am pretty direct but I try not to hurt any feelings. I'm a DIY kind of woman...working on my own car, plumbing, fixing appliances, building things and yardwork (you can hand me the tools, lol). I'm not a very political person but I do believe in equal rights and am a strong advocate for environmental issues (reduse, reuse, recycle, repurpose) and for adopting shelter animals (who needs a puppy mill designer dog anyway?). I'm a giver/doer not a lazy taker and have tried to rid my life of soul-sucking kinds of people (that never call unless they need something). I always help people in need but can't stand people who take advantage of that side of me.
If you're someone who hates "the gays", thinks women belong in the kitchen, cares far too much about working out, hitting the clubs, hunting for sport, your vehicle or your large cache of firearms, it would be a waste of time for us to meet. My life doesn't include hate for anyone or material preoccupations. I like men who say what they mean, do what they promise to, who aren't ignorant to the the world around them, love kids (or at least mine...lol), and are somewhat old fashioned in their values. Mostly, that they are mature enough to be past all the bs games that we all played at some point in our past and know that relationships take work and commitment. My life is fine without a man, but I would really like to have someone in it that I can truly love and be loved by...
A long walk on the beach, candelit dinner or dancing in the moonlight...gag. These are movie-script, fantasy things that nobody in the real world ever does. I would much rather enjoy something based in reality, like enjoying a restaurant, pub or hole in the wall place that neither of us have ever been to. No home-court advantages for either of us ;)
