Caution! You are about to read the ramblings of a real woman. I may scare you because I'm straightforward, confident, happy and have my life more together than not. No, I'm not perfect by any means, but I am happy. I'm carefree and unattached, no kids and my crazy ex-husband lives several states away. So if you are up for a giggle read on.
I'm funny, outgoing, caring, independent, and a great friend. At least this is how my friends would describe me to you if they were trying to set us up. I love to people watch, so going to bars is always fun... Seeing live music, at local bars or big venues, fishing, I used to bowl all the time, (I have my own gear) but I am not very good at it. I like outdoorsy stuff too. Love to get dressed up pin up style and hit the town or just hang out around the house in my pjs watching movies cuddling on the couch. One of the reasons I'm the perfect girlfriend (#13 of 50) is I can go from bum to pinup in 30 minutes or less. It started off as a joke, but then I made a real list. I think everyone needs to sit down and make a list of why they would make the best SO. It's fun to put down why you're awesome on paper! Try it. I'm pretty laid back, try to live a drama free life. My match would need to be mostly drama free too.
Goals: I've got lots of these! I'm pretty happy about where I'm at in my career right now, but I would love to get a masters degree. The only problem is the payback on the investment, it's nonexistent. I would do it if I got a grant or scholarship though, but I'm not going into deeper debt to not financially improve my career. My second goal is to be debt free by 35, (I've got a plan!) except for my mortgage of course. I'd like to start a family by 35 as well, but if it doesn't happen I won't be heartbroken. I kinda roll with the punches, I'd make an excellent step mother. IJS
Now the real question: what am I hoping to find here? I'd like an honest guy. I like disciplined men, but fun ones as well. I grew up in Jacksonville, so I am really attracted to Navy guys, so if you are in the military it won't scare me off, it's actually a bonus for you. I like the clean cut look a lot. Let me qualify this with I am not looking for someone to take care of me or a good benefits package. My job has an awesome benefits package. (Reason #3: I've got mine, so I don't want yours.) I just really don't want a guy that doesn't have his life together for the most part. I mean you need to be working, have a place to live, hopefully a car. It might seem superficial, but I spent a good portion of a decade working while my ex wasn't. It caused a lot of unnecessary stress and I'm not down for repeating history again. But again, if I don't find what I'm looking for, I'm not going to cry.
Now, what would my ideal match look like? Hmmm.... let me think. I prefer white males 6'2 or taller, clean cut, but if your a little shorter it's cool, I'm really tall and I love heels, so if this bothers you, you probably need to keep moving. It's a preference, nothing against you, just like you might prefer athletic, petite blondes. If you put that in your profile, then I wouldn't message you. I've seen quite a few of your profiles that say you don't like thicker girls (usually not worded quite as nicely), so I don't even bother reading further. So if you're shorter than the national average (5'9 in case you didn't know), don't bother, no offense... Also, I'm not a cougar yet, or even a cougar in training, so I like men who are close to my age or older. Actually I find men between 30 and 38 to be the sexiest men out there. Always have. Maybe when I'm 60 I'll be a cougar chasing men half my age!
Everything you just read hopefully had some entertainment value for you, there is some useful information and all of it is true. If you found me even the least bit charming, don't be hesitant and just send a message. What's the worst that can happen? I'm never rude or mean, I promise!
