I was a single mom for years and now that my child has finished college, I'm living on my terms! I take care of myself spiritually (specifically Christianity), physically and emotionally but I don't want to have to do so alone. How does this sound to you?
I am a person that loves to laugh and be adventurous and spontaneous, with childhood abandon. I love to have a smile on my face and can usually make people laugh. I'm at a point in my life where I can be spontaneous. My child is out of the house so I have flexibility that I didn't have as a single mom! I enjoy male companionship starting with friendship. I consider myself a low-maintenance woman. I will watch football (and know what is going on, most of the time). I really appreciate the excitement of starting new relationships. I hope to meet someone who will begin a friendship with me filled with lots of conversations that make me laugh and are thought-provoking, authentic, and intellectually challenging that grows and develops into affection, romance and adventure.
I have no desire to "fuss" like I did when I was younger, *WAIT, Is that being TOO HONEST?* I am reformed and refuse to revert to that style of "communication" again. I feel very uncomfortable if I cannot speak my truth. I make it a point to be respectful & have compassion for other's feelings. Honest doesn't give a license to be RUDE!
Life is too short to play games, especially those where no one really wins or are a battle for control. I don't want to control the man in my life because, if he is in that special relationship with me, he will be loving, caring, open, honest, considerate, respectful, emotionally mature, spiritually grounded and financially stable enough to talk things through without being overbearing, judgmental or stubborn. I do not want to have drama in my life and I won't bring drama to yours!
I will tell you what I like and don't like with respect and courtesy. I can be bold and lady-like at the same time, all with a smile! There won't be any need to battle because if we get to that point, we will be clear about what the other needs, wants and likes and will make every effort to do the things that bring a smile to their face and contentment to their heart. I want to be the one you can come to after a hard day and be yourself and share the good, the bad and the ugly and be accepted lovingly, without judgment. Sometimes talking, sometimes just listening and holding you or massaging your neck to relieve the tension of the day. We can play like children to remove the weight of the stress of our jobs and keep us young and joyful.
I am a good listener (with my ears and my heart). Give and take begins with talking...
My friends will tell you that I am a very supportive person to everyone in my close circle. I have learned to be wise enough to tell when someone takes my kindness as a weakness. I know how I want to be treated and am serious enough about the kind of relationship I want to speak up without criticizing your manhood. I have clear convictions and at the same time can show affection because I know how to express myself as a woman.
I'm a realist so prefer the truth. Lying s a huge turn off!
If you are willing to meet a woman that is not afraid to tell the truth and has a working brain in her head, introduce yourself! It could be fun!
