I'm 42, and feel 32. My son is 20 years old and lives with me again after a brief going into the world on his own journey... I'm happy that he learned a bit and returned a more responsible and appreciative young man. :)
I work a lot of hours, but I really love being there. My screen name came from the type of work I do... I hike a lot, and usually have a couple beers on the trail with my best companion and my music. It's my alone time, and I really find happiness there. Improving myself through my work and hiking gives me purpose and satisfaction in life; I think it keeps me happy and youthful. :)
My family is great, I'm very optimistic, grounded, and when I love it's sweet and true.
I'm practical, but also dreamy at the same time. I'm honest and free of addiction, and I'll hope for the same in return.
So many years of my life have been spent on raising my son and succeeding at my career, but my focus now is balance. I am taking the time to learn what interests me and experience new adventures. It would be nice to find someone to share it with :)))
I hope to find a man who is kind. One who is proud to be a man and who is honored to own those traits. I hope that he will not be shy or standoffish, because confidence is very sexy. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm looking for a love story. Yes, I like to have fun, and I don't believe there are many rigid rules in life. (but, do no harm) But, there is one constant for me... I'm not capable of casual relationships. My heart and mind are the sexiest parts of me... So, if you're looking for the shallow... Please keep looking.
