I'm pretty agnostic, and super serious about the not knowing who is Richard Dawkins! I left most religious superstition and certainly belief in most of that jazz a long time ago. If you are one of those born-again, walk in/by grace, thank god/Jesus for all, it's seriously not going to work, been there, I promise it's futile! I don't think I can date theists, it just doesn't work! For realsies, please be not religious...at all...I tend to use Jesus Christ as a pejorative...
This a sincere effort at genuine partnership, if I wanted to just get laid, I'd troll the bars, not here.
If you have listed on relationship type dating but nothing serious, I'm going to want some clarification, I'd prefer to not waste my time with a man-child with a case of incurable Peter Pan syndrome. I'm wildly impulsive and whimsical...I'll be the first to have NOT an iota of shame for starting a food fight or telling a dirty joke, but I am structured when needs be and know life is not about the party, but that doesn't mean it cannot be a FAR OUT adventure!
Although I don't get easily attached or believe in love at first sight, I'm not a hollah back girl. I would like to date around compare my options before I settle down.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT I DID NOT SAY SLEEP AROUND!!!
I'm just too effing old for the rando, casual sex games.
I am looking eventually for a committed partner to share in my joys and and to shower with affection. I am upfront in my intentions, settling down doesn't mean we have to fill out the red tape bits or get married. I miss having a special someone to come home to, to dazzle with my culinary skills, and to wake me up in the morning with their warm body next to mine and a neck nuzzle for good measure. I'm a bit of a stubborn woman that believes that a true connection takes time (as in a year or more not a couple months like most horny lonely souls on here) and develops organically and with ease, and that the genesis of love stems from sincerity, honesty, and loyal friendship. I am with out a doubt one-of-a kind and am not ashamed to admit that I am unique and acknowledge my value. I am confident, but I'm not arrogant or narcissistic. I don't believe in being condescending or a classicist. If a challenge scares you, by all means, do not message me. I have no time or patience for game players or jack-holes. I don't jump head first or leave myself very vulnerable initially or with much ease, so please, be patient!

Most important trait in someone is humility and kindness. If you are entitled, superficial, vain, and/or treat people, especially service industry workers like they owe you something or are atrociously rude, I want nothing to do with you. Flashing your net worth will not impress me, I'm not materialistic, I'm quite the opposite. Thoughtful gestures mean everything to me. Jewelry and gifts aren't really needed. Have my tires rotated or remember how I like my cream of wheat, and you might just melt my heart. I'm quite tender, sensitive, and sentimental once I let my guard down.
Sapiophile is someone who is quite attracted to intelligent people. I'm a sucker for a brilliant man! I value reason, logic, and a healthy dose of curiosity and skepticism more so than a pretty smile or chiseled abs. Unless you have deep dimples or are insanely tall and look like Zachary Levy (my personal dose of knee-jellafying kryptonite, tall, floppy mop of curly brown hair and brown eyes and British accents)...jk well, maybe not.
If you think that there is no such thing as evolution, hate reading, or don't know that there are seven continents, we probably won't get along. Yup, I'm also a closet nerdette. I speak fluent French and Spanish and have managed around Rome with my Italian, and on occasion I read Greek, Hebrew and Swedish. I prefer long heated discussions on Karl Marx, existentialism, but not for pretense, astronomy, geography, globe-trotting, world religions, Anarchy, and the crude humor of Zach Galifinakis and Will Ferrel.
I'm a proud Secular Humanist. . I sometimes swear like a sailor but it's only skin deep, I really do have deep rooted principles I live by and teach my child by which to live. Seriously manner and courtesy are super important to me. I never want to come off as pedantic or entitled. I'm so turned off by snobbery. Although intelligence is a must there has to be an innate raw magnetism that is (cough cough, ahem)....carnal...(wee blush) Physical attraction is a fundamental and primal element chemistry and compatibility, n'est-ce pas?
I'm quite whimsical and playful. I'm feminine, but not prissy, AT ALL!!! Chances are if I see sprinklers, I'm running through them. If you're too uptight to join me, that'll probably be our last date. I'm not above getting dirty. I am quite adept at using power-tools. I can start a campfire, and do love being outdoors for a chill fireside cook-out. Hamburger, hot dogs and even steak to do not a BBQ constitute. I am a PROUD TEXAN, I do know my way around a smoker and a grill! I make a mean brisket! I love laughing even though it is an insanely loud outburst kind of a laugh, but I do love humor.
My purest delight, which is the source of most of my laughter and wonderment, is also my greatest masterpiece, my magnum opus...my amazing little girl! Without her, my life would be incomplete and the source of my purest joy would be non-existent. Although we are a package deal, I'm extremely protective of her, and will not introduce anyone to her, unless we've been seeing each other for at least a year. I just don't want her to be introduced to every man with whom I happen to go on a date. To me that's weird and dysfunctional. I want to be a constructive and positive example to her and give her a healthy outlook on what commitment means. I value my daughter's respect and trust in me more than the worth of diamonds. I'd be utterly devastated if she ever witnesses me behaving or conducting myself in a manner that would compromise that respect and faith she has in me. Yes, I am a single parent. I'm proud of the title Mommy, but, I hate that some find that word a pejorative, for me it is my badge of honor. Single motherhood doesn't mean I have excess emotional baggage or had her out of wedlock or some other negative connotations that come out of the phrase "single-mom". I'm not looking to find someone to take care of us financially. I'm not looking for a replacement Daddy, she has a father, and though we do not see eye to eye, he is quite involved, no need to worry. I'm not husband-hungry. It simply is a matter that we married prematurely and for the wrong reasons, but before we realized that, we were already expecting our baby girl, and we grew apart. I'm quite capable of paying my own bills. I like the independence of my own means of res
