***I've been separated for a year and a half, not divorced yet for insurance purposes while I've worked on upgrading my career- almost done! Things are drama free and amicable at this point, and we've learned how to keep it that way - whew! lol!***
Are you the Gatekeeper? lol, jk. Watched Ghostbusters before Halloween with the kids - it's still awesome! :)
Oh, and btw, my Sun is Cancer, Moon is Scorpio, and Rising is Virgo...for what that's worth to anyone. Anyone... ... ... ? ;)
I'm really quite busy with home/school/work/kids during most of the week and don't have a lot of time to invest in a full relationship, but I do get 2 nights a week to myself (1 weekend night, and Mon nights), and would like to find a mutually attracted friend with common interests to spend this free time with! If things naturally developed into a relationship down the road a bit, I wouldn't complain, but I feel beginning as friends is a good approach.
Do we have common interests? I listed quite a few things in my "Interests" box, but the interests I'm the most passionate about outside of my kids are music (making it with my piano - playing along with my iPod in my own unique style, or listening to it, especially LIVE!), walking the city and taking architectural photographs (really enjoy night walking, too, but the photos never work out!), and getting my fitness level back up where it needs to be so I can play volleyball with my daughters next summer (used to play competitively into my 30s until injuries took their toll. LOVE that game!! :)).
My musical tastes: Varied. Classic rock and harder rock, but not modern metal. I have a soft spot for Old Skool Metallica and some 80s "metal" with their big, fluffy hair, killer makeup, sexy spandex pants, codpieces and ripped tanks, and their crazy-masculine high-pitched harmonies, lol! Yes, I'm entirely kidding - wth were we all thinking?!?! - but some of the music is fun to revisit occasionally, right? C'mon, when's the last time you listened to Cinderella?? You know you love(d) 'em :D), blues, funk, hippie jams, R n B, singer/songwriter, Indie, reggae, really anything with a good groove and positive vibe, and classical (even though it is rarely groovy).
List of words to describe me: Open-minded, Optimistic, Fun-lovin', People-lovin', Sensual, Artistic, Musical (piano/vocal), Creative, Thrifty, Lighthearted, Curious, Active, Athletic, Adaptable, Imaginative, Passionate, Playful, Easy-to-Please, Pleaser, Hard-working, and above all Mother of Four (17, 15 and 4 yr old girls at home)...with some inner Wild Child in the mix to keep things spicy!! (haha, consider yourself warned - but don't be afraid; the cautious Cancerian in me will need a little time to become comfortable with you before it lets HER come out ;) )
Things I value in a relationship: Honesty, integrity, communication, respect, compassion, responsibility, humor and good chemistry.
Things I value in a man: A KIND heart and mindset, gentle soul, and passionate and adventurous spirit!! Musicality or music lover; one, the other, or both! Night Owlism - or at least a tolerance of mine. Height (see below), strength, and a healthy level of testosterone. (What?! Is that wrong to say out loud? lol)
So that's why I'm here, what I'm looking for, and a sneak peek into my world. :) Please say hello if you're curious, and I'll respond if I'm curious back. Thanks for reading, best of luck on here, and keep it classy SL! :D
"A happy man marries the woman he loves; a happier man loves the woman he married." (and vice versa - just my philosophy on love and marriage, as I happen to be an unconditional lover ;) )
**PLEASE READ** I need to state that I do have one condition, shallow as it is, which is that my guy be TALLER than me, and I'm 5'10. Sorry bout that, but it is what it is! Honestly, I've tried it and it just feels off-balance somehow.**reiteration because it's still happening** PLEASE DON'T MESSAGE ME IF YOU AREN'T AT LEAST 5'10! (I'm SO sorry, that sounds so cold, but it's simply a matter of time management - I'm a typical Busy Mom!)
