I've read a few profiles and it seems more common to put your best foot forward in these ads. I'm gonna keep it real and give u a bit of good & bad just so u have an idea of what you might be getting yourself into. Im Caucasian & Japanese..(aka American Ninja warrior but not in a physically fit kind of way, more like fat & sassy, lol). Im a little on the shy side and embarrass easily at first but Im very friendly. Im not good at small talk but will think of something to say to avoid uncomfortable silence, even at the risk of sounding like a moron (which I often do). Im young at heart (at times people say immature, whoops). I am a happy person (no,Im not on meds), curious, open minded, independent, not overly sensitive, a little goofy, a bit clumsy and can be brutally honest (yikes).
I enjoy staying busy with various activities, traveling, day trips, amusement parks, camping and family/friend get togethers and always up for trying new things (anything that gets me out of the house & away from having to clean it). I also enjoy quiet time at home cooking, cuddling & watching movies or not so quiet time at home doing whatever makes it not quiet.
I have been divorced a few years.(How much time does it take before "few" turns to "many"??). I have been focused on being a full time single mom & raising two wonderful respectful young gentlemen, now ages 19 & 15. I work full-time and also take care of my mother. I "Live & Strive not just Live to Survive" so making & achieving goals is important to me. It's funny, I have white water rafted down the S.Fork American River, climbed waterfalls in Jamaica, zip lined in the forests of Okinawa, swam with sharks, skydived and even spent the night in a Tijuana jail cell (voluntarily,of course :)) Ok...swimming with the sharks was at Disney World so maybe that doesn't count. Anyways..I have no problem doing things like that but online dating terrifies me. Does anyone else feel like that? I do miss being in the embrace of a man, having someone special to share life's adventures/experiences/obstacles/challenges/chores. (did I really just say chores?). I have realized he's not going to fall out of the sky into my lap so it's time to step out of the comfort zone. I might need a nudge (can you help with that?).
Im looking for someone around my age to enjoy simple friendship/companionship, taking our time to get to know each other & see where it leads.Someone who understands that relationships take patience & work. I believe communication, respect & compromise are key. A man's character is much more appealing to me than physical appearance.. although I do require a man with good hygiene :-). I enjoy my simple lifestyle and hoping to meet someone who is...well...doesnt have to be on the same page but in the same chapter would be nice or at very least in the same book, lol.
I am ultimately looking for a healthy exclusive LTR to hold hands & grow old together, explore the world, lift each other up to be the best we can be & have a home where family & friends can gather and have fun. So c'mon let's laugh, love & live together (was that over the top corny?)
Well thats all I've got to say for now. If I have peaked your interest, please shoot me an email..lets talk..meet...and.... (tbd)
First meet-n-greet? Let's just keep it short & simple to get the awkward meeting for the first time out of the way. Perhaps meet for a drink..coffee, tea, jamba juice, happy hour. Or we could meet for a walk or we could even make it really simple & meet for a quick glimpse of each other at the market...who doesn't need to run to the market for something? First date...well depending on our first meet & greet, if it were just a glimpse then we could step it up to a drink or groupon has lots of ideas or there's always dinner. And I am good with going dutch, you just gotta ask me out :-)
