Hello :-) Thanks for checking me out..
I will be BRUTALLY honest in my comments here!!
I have been on this (and other) dating sites for longer than I care to admit. Are there decent people on these sites? Yes! Absolutely! But, like most things in life it is becoming very hard to weed out the bad from the good and vice versa.
I started out with a sugary sweet summary on here and that attracted the con artists and the married men just looking for a hook up. Then I did the "bitter-I-challenge-you-to-prove-me-wrong-about-all-men" summary.. Yeah, that got me nowhere and REALLY is not me at all!!
So, here I am again--- Just Julie.
Looking for perfection-- nope! Looking for someone who is as sane as I am-- yep! Hung up on past experiences? Nope, we learn from our past & look forward to the future.
I have been off the dating scene for quite a while as I have hidden myself in my career and my business. But now I am really looking to start getting out and enjoying life again.
My children are older (21 yr old son in the Navy & 16 yr old daughter) and are great kids- so I have no excess drama with kids. Yep, I became a widow unexpectedly at the age of 40- so I have no x-husband drama.
I have an amazing career and also a super successful business, so you will never hear my whining about my electric or phone being shut off.
I am just looking to find someone not looking for ANY sort of games who wants to EVENTUALLY be in a relationship.
Another reality is-- I am not a size 2 model. I am 42 years old, have had 2 children, and have dealt with all life has thrown at me. I think I look pretty decent all things considered and I am not a small girl- but still take care of myself. I do prefer guys in that same situation as well :-)
And my last 'super-bad' flaw is- yes, I smoke. I have absolutely great teeth and wonderful hygiene. My life does not revolve around the smoking- it was a nasty habit I picked up again a few years ago and I am very courteous around non-smokers. If this is an issue, just keep going as it is still something I am working on.
Are you the guy who says "I am tired of being screwed over by women!"? If so, yes-- there are still great women out there!! Best of luck on your search!!
