A great friend of mine told me that the attention span of most men is 5 sentences and I just wasted one. I have a very strong, conflicting personality. I always have a great time and find something positive. I am grateful for my life and feel so blessed for everything; sometimes my gratitude for the simplest things seems weird but my life experiences have given me great perspective on life. I love getting lost and finding new places. I ran long so if you’re still interested and can continue reading; brownie points for you.
What you should know first and foremost; I do not have the time or attention to do the online dating thing properly. I have been bombarded with messages from people who I don’t consider realistic matches. Sometimes, I can’t bear to look at a message notification because it’s been depressing getting many messages from people who are nothing like what I say I’m looking for or am attracted to.
I’m looking to meet new people; not rush into anything. I used to say I was looking for a relationship. I’m not sure that approach works for me, is what I’m capable of right now but one day I hope to have a long-term, committed relationship….. I’m not there right now or haven’t met someone who makes me want to it give up my single woman status.
I am attracted to intelligent, witty people. I respect hard work, those with focused goals, and an ability to dream. I am athletic and find fitness, competitiveness, and playfulness very attractive. I like old fashioned men and values. While I am a very strong, independent woman; I’m looking for a man who is more of a man then I’ve had to be. I am a chameleon and can usually blend in anywhere. That being said, I prefer a drink at a dive bar over wine tasting or dinner at a pretentious restaurant. I can play the part at either and both are comfortable to me. A guy who can go from a suit to jeans, a tee and flip flops to his running gear is the most attractive thing to me.
Everyone tells me I’m single by design. I believe I have taken my time to raise my kids, work hard, enjoy my friends, and now it’s my time. Road trips, hikes, golfing, eating out alone, and cooking for one might be more fun with the right person.
Please, contact me if you are a happy, grateful person, who enjoys staying busy, are capable of doing physical activities, and don’t need someone but feel the right person could make your life better. Because I am somewhat old-fashioned, I do not generally make the first move. Thank you for taking the time to read my novel.
