I teach fitness classes as a hobby, in addition to working a full-time job. Teaching is a huge part of my life. I get a charge out of helping members meet their fitness goals, as well as overcome other obstacles in their lives through fitness. They remind me that fitness isn't always about what you see improving on the outside, but how it feeds the soul and mind. I am honored that they allow me to be a part of their journey, and realize I learn as much from them as they do from me.
I'm also a single mom to 14-year-old twins. I have been down some rough roads with my kids over the years (my son is high-functioning autistic), but things are finally where they need to be, and both of my kids are thriving. I try to be involved in my kids' lives as much as possible, and am very proud of who they have become. I am grateful beyond words for the life that I have now. Lately, between work and home, I have taken too much time for others, and not enough for myself. I feel that I can relax now, open my heart, and allow someone in.
I'm reserved at first, but open up as I get to know and trust you. My home and work life require me to take on a fairly dominant role (raising kids alone and being the boss at work), so I am looking for a man who is willing to allow me to be soft in a more traditional female way. I know what I want from a relationship (and what I don't want), and am willing to wait for the right guy, so I'm not going to latch on to you, or waste your time just for the sake of having someone to spend time with. I've been described as affectionate, loyal, and light-hearted. I believe physical closeness is as important as emotional closeness. I also believe that couples need time apart to recharge, and to allow each person to maintain their identity.
You are strong, yet soft with me, confident but not arrogant, are set in your career, and have a heart ready to explore the possibility of something amazing. You are funny, serious when you need to be, and won't hesitate to make it clear to me when we need to talk about important matters (I don't always pick up on that stuff). Know that if something is important to you, it is important to me. You are not jealous, you trust me, as I will never give you a reason not to, and you know that I need you as much as you need me. Together we find balance. I'm looking for the real deal. I know it's a tall order, but it's what I need, and I am ready.
I am getting ready to buy some land and build a home in the Los Gatos Mountains.....hoping for a log cabin. My idea of a perfect Saturday morning is sitting out on the front porch with a cup of coffee listening to the birds, with my dog by my feet. Ideally - you would be there too :-)
Let's start slow, have fun, and allow a friendship to build while an amazing romance unfolds. I believe that relationships take work and communication, and the best ones are those that are built over time.
