Okay..hang on..before the whole 'this is who I am' part, let me say this; honesty is an important part of life. So if you say you're 5'10" and we meet and you're like - my height.. Or if you sort of wiggle it in during conversation that you're - "ha ha - funny story I'm actually - still, kinda married!" - well, that's actually not super funny.
Life is to be shared. I believe in keeping good, sincere, thoughtful communication and have found that it's the key to a solid relationship. I've had some experience in the opposite and - nope - it doesn't work.
There's a theory that you can tell a lot about a person by how they handle themselves in three situations: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas lights. It's good to show someone what you like to do in life, but there's also something to say about experiencing new things together. I think it shows you a great perspective about who someone really is and how they handle whatever comes their way. I'm looking for someone confident and optimistic. Someone who likes to be active and who takes care of themself and had a good sense of humor (I'm bilingual in sarcasm - you too?!) In this day . . if we can't laugh - we're in serious trouble.
I've been in Arizona almost 15 years - whew, times flies! The wide blue skies and gorgeous mountains of Colorado will always be home in my heart but Arizona is home to stay. I'd really like to see what else this desert oasis has to offer besides traffic and haboobs. Is that how you spell it? Where's Tombstone? Is that still a thing? Festivals, carnivals, local events - I love all that stuff! You?
Most of all... I want to find someone to laugh with, have "those melting looks" with, those inside jokes, and to be serious with when needed. Someone to kiss, love, to rely on and to be there for. To explore all that life has to offer. How about you? What do you want from life?
I'm not looking for a substitute dad for my kids; they have one and he's a good dad. There's no "ex drama" - the divorce was final many years ago.
Good luck to us all.. everyone deserves to find whatever makes their heart happy.
*. . oh yeah.. Here are the must haves / can't take: I'm looking for someone else with kids who understands parenting schedules and demands, someone who doesn't smoke, someone else who likes to be active and go do things, someone around my age, and someone who's optimistic about life and love. It IS possible ~ I'm pretty sure. (it's these fine print details that are important).
The less "interview-ish" the better when you first meet someone. Movies are no good because you can't talk, can't see each other, and movie popcorn stuck between your teeth is not exactly attractive. Maybe..a dog park? A local farmers market of some kind, a bookstore and coffee? Hike? Throw stuff off the bridge...
