So this is all about me! Finally! Ok, well, for starters, I've got a full-time job and a part-time job. Some one said to me recently, that doesn't leave a lot of time for dating. True. But what would I do if I quit my part-time job? I'd go stir-crazy waiting for you! Bottom line, I'll make time for my man when he comes along.
I grew up in the country, but live in the burbs now. I think cooking and doing the dishes and other chores are things that a couple could do together. I've been on my own long enough and think I miss those times the most. I have kids. They are teens now. I do not have primary custody. I'll tell you right now, it's not because I'm a bad mom, it's because he can provide better for them. I didn't lose custody, I agreed to this arrangement. I love my kids more than anything and would do anything for them. I do see them very often and am very involved in their lives.
I'm honest, I have nothing to hide. I've been through a lot though, just like I'm sure you have. Understand that and we'll get along great. I have been known to go to the local bar to socialize with friends, but I don't drink a lot and I don't go very often. I quit smoking last year, so understand that I have gained some weight. The extra weight does not define who I am. I am a member of a gym, but I haven't been going as much as I should. My 30th high school reunion is next year and I plan to knock this extra weight off long before that.
I own my own house. It's a little fixer upper. Well actually, it's a little house, but a big fixer upper. It keeps me busy. No, I'm not afraid of power tools at all! This year I remodeled my bathroom - all by myself! I did, really!!! I layed tile, I installed a new vanity, drywall, popcorn ceiling, paint, chair rail, wainscot (the real stuff, not the paneling) and built a cabinet around the electrical box - yes the electrical box in my bathroom. It came out beautiful!
I also sew, not clothes, but I can make curtains really good! Several years ago I made a quilt for myself and one each for my kids.
I follow SU Basketball. GO SU!!!
I've been alone a long time, by choice. I spent this time getting to know myself again and to focus on my kids. I honestly have no clue what a single man might think of me. I hope you would see me as a fun and energetic, strong yet vulnerable woman who is striving to live a meaningful and comfortable life within my means. I am who I am. I'm independent and have made a pretty good life for myself these past several years, but something is missing, the void in my heart that is waiting for you to fill it.
I would love to join you over dinner, drinks, coffee, what ever is comfortable for you. :)
