I'm looking for fun. I like to try that new restaurant or head to the city for a day of exploring. I work hard all week and I like to relax during the weekend. I don't usually have the kids on the weekends so that leaves me with some free time to enjoy someone else's company. I will admit I'm a litte gun shy about the possibility of a second marriage, but I won't rule it out for the right person. I need to take my time and I won't be in any rush for you to meet my kids. Let's see where this leads and enjoy our time together.
I have found that most men on this site are either not ready to move on, not in a good place in their life for a relationship let alone dating or have had their heart broken so badly they just can't believe I am what I say I am ;-) I've been divorced for awhile, finally feel settled in to my life and secure on where I am. I'm not looking for a father for my kids; they have one already, but if you plan to be part of my life at some point then you should be pretty comfortable with kids. I do have the time to spend with someone special and would like to find someone that truly enjoys even the simplest of things. I am the gal that you can take out for a nice dinner, but I'm also the girl that will sit in the couch (or bar stool or even stadium seat!) and watch the Giants (woohoo!) or Warriors (we'll see how Coach Kerr does)). I love to go to games!
You: I'm not looking for prince charming (o.k., maybe a little part of me is, but I am also a realist (can you be a romantic at heart and a realist too?). I hope you like music, dining out, dining in (maybe even cook for me or vice versa), walks on the beach, drive to the coast, movies in or out, hike/picnic in the woods, holding hands......and much more. I believe love has to grow from friendship and takes time. I know as we get older we may feel like we don't have time to wait, but I will not settle. I deserve better and more from my partner then I have had in the past. Even after everything I have been through in life I truly believe there is someone out there that will love me for me. And not in some overwhelming way, but I believe a true partner can make all the difference and I want to learn and grow; I'm not done yet and I am not ready to hang up my hat ;) I'm pretty easy to talk with and although I may not have the Harvard degree I can hold my own and still be sarcastic and goofy at the same time. I know when to be a young lady and when to put my feet up and relax. I'm ready to have a good time and would love to make new friends and finally enjoy all that this beautiful area I now call home has to offer. I am a Monterey Bay native, but have lived in the Silocon Valley, North Bay, Washington State, Hawaii, and even Alaska.
I'm pretty outgoing and outspoken. If you don't like a woman that speaks her mind then I'm definitely not for you! I have a bit of a sarcastic side and love to laugh. I really enjoy music, especially live concerts....anywhere from rock, to country, to something nice like acoustic guitar under the stars on a summer night. I love a good movie out or in by the fire snuggling on the couch. I'm up for a weekend getaway to the coast or Tahoe. How about a Giants game? Or Or a Sharks game even? Prefer that over sitting on the couch all Sunday long watching football. I love to sit and talk or be there for you when you've had a tough day. I love a man that cooks for me; so sexy. I will cook my lasagna for you and maybe later on down the road you'll get a chance to taste my French Toast for breakfast.I'm not afraid of public display of affection and I am all about hugs and kisses, stolen moments, glances across the table or the room, that quick text to let me know you were thinking of me, and yet we each have our own lives and own interests. I hope that you will share in some of what I am passionate about and I am willing to try just about anything once.
The standard seems to be coffee or drinks.....what about a Giants or Warriors game? If you can handle me cheering or yelling during the game you can handle just about anything ;) or a nice walk around Spring Lake or Anadel? Or a picnic? Public places are always good, you'll know I'm not a pyscho chic and I'll know you're not an axe murder :)
