Everyone says that they're "bad at doing this" ... so I'll refrain from repeating the obvious. But, to cover the basics: I'm a single (obviously right?) mother of five (my own basketball team) who works full time in education (obviously, I really like kids).
I have a lot of interests and I'm always willing to learn new things. I tend to be an open, social individual - not much surprises me (though I might be highly amused :) - who likes an easy going pace, no pressure, and can fit into most social situations comfortably: I like to dress up and go out just as well as I like lounging on the couch and watching a movie. I love to laugh - it's the best medicine! ... but sometimes a good cry at a cheesy flick can be just as good. I enjoy camping as much as I can a day at the theater ... with the right sort of company. I thoroughly enjoy holding a conversation with almost anyone ... as long as I have some intellectual return (and don't turn it into a boxing match of opinions). And I believe in things like: respect, manners, and open mind, the good old fashioned giggles, blushing occasionally, random inappropriate jokes, attempting to avoid negativity and a little bit (okay, a lot) of random Geek girl behavior that includes things like video games, movies and comic books.
So drop me a line and see how it goes. I promise I don't bite (hard :)

FYI: as clarification - "does not want children" means I don't want anymore of my own :) I don't mind meeting men that have children themselves ... (it just seemed so vague!)
PS: So I've gotten several questions of "ust what are you looking for?" (because I do want to date, but I don't want the marriage/co-habitation type arrangement ... and I'm also not available for the "booty call") ... so I thought I'd preface the answer here:
I'm not really looking for anything (marriage) serious right now. I'd prefer to keep things simple: messages, chatting, phone calls/texting, friendly hanging out and/or dating ... just keeping to a pretty low key kind of situation. It doesn't mean that I'm closed off to the possibility of a relationship developing in the future (I realize that I can't predict what will happen and you never know - things can and do change!) ... but I am focusing primarily on my family right now and the flexibility and understanding that I need to make it successful. Unfortunately, this does put some limitations on the relationships I can entertain at this time (and it does hamper travel/distance, also, as I tend to keep close to the home fort).
But just because I'm not looking for the settling down type of commitment doesn't mean I will be (or want my partner to be) jumping from person to person, entertaining the attached or married kind (their significant others tend to get kind of upset) or having a casual fling. I'm sorry, but I'm not here for sex folks. So if you are looking for a quick fix ... I'm probably not going to be the right person for you. And please: just remember that in my world, my kids are first and foremost ... so if you can't handle my busy life style and the devotion to the smaller breed that that entails, you may also want to move along ... I can't do high maintenance right now.
