I am confident that we can have a great easygoing date. The key is to just be yourself, 100%, and if the chemistry exists, it will be evident. There will be a natural gravitational pull - you should want to touch that other person, have thoughts of hugging/kissing that person, lil' things such as your pheromones will also come into play - that is how you know. If not, we enjoy a short meeting and be honest and move on. I will not lead anyone on and do not want to waste anyone's time, especially MY OWN. If the ZING factor isn't there - time to move on. More often than not, i find that i am not feeling it; It is most definitely hard to find a special chemistry, and i would prefer to be alone than ever settle.
I am NOT interested in anything casual. I want to meet somebody who, if we click, will invest the time needed in really getting to know each other, building on that, and hopefully blossom into more. I am not wired for short-term. I want a best friend and long-term partner, ideally not ever having to return here! I am rare, but if i can find a great match, someone to enjoy the next 40 years with - i would be such a happy girl :) If you KNOW that you are only seeking something in the interim - I am not for you.
My "wish list", whether it be realistic or not, here it is as a starting point (chill, none are necessarily deal-breakers):
*Mike Holmes Junior is 100% MY type, with Chris Evans and Adam Busby in 2nd and 3rd. ;)*
NON SMOKER (anything)
NON SNORER - buy a breathing device or be okay with a separate bed, i need quiet from about 11-7 :)
DRUG FREE (prescriptions) - perhaps i am evil and insanely picky - but if you need a little happy pill(s) everyday to keep your mood in check - i have an issue with it - sorry
6 feet tall +
200 + lbs (i am NOT a small girl, would be nice if your legs weren't skinnier than mine :0)
Hair on head, but not tons on body (after having met a few super soft naturally smooth-backed men - i will never go back to furry! :0)
Love pretty eyes - in preference order - blue, grey, green, hazel
Please SMILE - if you don't in any of your pics, i am definitely going to question WHY
Can have fun without alcohol. I very rarely drink, and if i do - it is one or two.
Have a solid grasp of the english language (primary language please) >>> you enjoy DINNING? that better be loud sounds and NOT food that you are talk'n about, basic grammar - it's the difference between knowing your sh*t & knowing you're shit!
Live within a 30 minute radius of me easily accessible by Toronto public transit/GO train - realistically i have about 10 kid-free evenings (incl 4 full days) per month at best and traveling a far distance is not optimal for really getting to know somebody - that said, the kids are getting older and more independent by the day, so eventually i will have a lot more availability and the hope is to become best friends with somebody and build on that, grow old together :)
Moderately Fit BUT somebody who will indulge in my home baked desserts and not count the calories, (also - if you are concerned about peanuts or dairy or gluten, this could be an issue)
Can laugh at themselves, is easygoing, laid back, crazy sarcastic and would prefer a pub over a classy restaurant, a hoodie and jeans over a suit and tie - i honestly would have no clue how to distinguish a Rolex from a Dollar Store watch - why? because i could care less.......material things don't impress me in the least. The simpler, the better! Always. I can almost guarantee that i own less articles of clothing and pairs of shoes than YOU do! Functionality and comfort is all i want and need :)
Loves to be outdoors, appreciates nature and animals and the warmth of the sun :), i speak squirrel fluently :)
>>> I will always choose being outdoors over cleaning my house ANYDAY! :) The dustbunnies can wait. I don't ever stress about that stuff.
Someone who is open and willing to date a woman with children but does not want any (more) of their own as i am done with making babies :)
If you do have kids, preferably ages 10 and up.
>>> clearly, you would have to be open to the idea of eventually being around children if we were to click, if you aren't (and they are not for everyone!), please save you and ME time and don't connect, thank you
* other plusses include > having a full-time job and having/owning your OWN place (or at least having a goal to achieve that in the near future would be preferred) * as i have both - i get the whole money-strapped gett'n back on your feet thing, but after a year or two - commmmmmme on - move out of the relative's/friend's place *
**** and lastly, if you have EVER been unfaithful to a partner, then please don't message me, my tolerance for that is ZERO regardless of the excuses please****
