6/2014 Under construction. My profile is in serious need of an update. Will get to it when I am able. For now here's the basics....
I'm a student and working (I work with teens who have autism and other developmental disabilities as well as with the elderly) mother of 2 boys, 19 and 12. I AM SEPARATED... have been for almost 3 years now and am almost divorced. YAY! (That sounds horrible but getting divorced in California has been a pain in the a***.) I'm a pretty laid back person, introverted, may seem a bit shy at first, but once you get to know me I'm pretty fun. I can also be straight forward, strong willed independent gal but am not a b****. LOL People are intimidated by that about women sometimes but they shouldn't be. It's a good thing... honestly. I know how to meet people halfway. Basically, what you see is what you get. All these things, to some, may seem like "drama"... it's just life. In a perfect world everything would be peachy keen (for the most part they are) but anyone with kids knows this isn't always so. I try to live my life as stress free as possible when possible and that's all we can do really.
I am not able to escape, from the world, on a whim but can still take the time to go out and have fun when I need to… with an advance notice of course. I am a busy mom and obviously that's a priority for me. Just keepin' it real folks. Of course for the right person I would make the time to spend time. Moms need a life too so don’t hold that against me.
A little bit of what I'm looking for:
Well I'm looking for someone to be friends with first. (I am also not opposed to making new friends too. New friends/amigos/ homies/road Dawgs/whatever you want to call them are welcome.) Get to know know each other and just see where it goes from there. I'm in no hurry to rush into anything, but am ultimately looking for a monogomous relationship. I'm not looking to move in with someone or get married... at least not any time in the near future. In other words you should have your own life (hobbies, friends, etc.) Not that those are things that can't be combined in time. Please don't misinterpret that. Once you get that point then all that will fall into place. People get scared of the word relationship for some reason. What people don't realize is that we make relationships with people everyday. Even with strangers we just met. Relationship has many different meanings so no need to get all scurred about it.=P Please refer to Depeche Mode's song "Somebody". That's what I'm looking for. =) Oh and please for the love of all that is holy... know how to communicate. I don't just mean expressing your feelings but also be able to have/carry an actual conversation about something other than... you know what. (Rhymes with text)
NOTE (I've been forced to write this note due to the messages I've received): I am ultimately looking for a relationship. I'm not a serial dater nor do I want one night stands or hook-up. When you start seeing someone "that" is something that will obviously come with getting close to someone. It's like the fine print on a contract... you don't really see it but know it's there. So please let's not throw "it" in each others faces. We're grown ups.
