I am a thirty-year-old woman who is tired of the typical dating scene; bars and clubs have not proven to be the greatest place to land a long-term man. I just want to find someone who is looking for the same thing I am, a long-term relationship. I just want to find someone who is looking for the same types of things I am looking for: a person to have fun with and be treated right. I would like to find someone to spend time with and have fun; and, maybe, in the future, get married and have a family. I do have some requirements though, but nothing too crazy.
I need to be treated with respect, compassion, and understanding. In return, you will get the same from me. I believe that you get back what you put in to a relationship. I am shy at first but after a little while, I will get more comfortable. I am not an overbearing control freak who has to have everything my way but I am also not a doormat. I will always stand up for and defend myself, my family, my friends, etc. if I believe that they are in need of a helping hand.
My ideal mate must want a family and pets. I don't care if you already have children or not, family is family and that is the way that they will always be treated but I would also like to have children of my own as well. In addition to giving birth to children, I would also like the opportunity to foster/adopt children in need of a good home; I have always had a desire to adopt a family of children who would normally be split up amongst several foster homes. I have always wanted a big family and look forward to having one someday.
I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for the last fourteen years. Because of the education and experience that I have accumulated, I would like to be at home for my children while they are young and then work during school hours as they get older. I believe that I could give my children the education and experiences that will help start their young lives with a love for life. I want to be the kind of parent that is home for the kids after school to help with homework, cook dinner, and be there to get to know my growing children and their friends.
In order to be the kind of Mom I want to be, I need a man who can be the husband and father that we need him to be. This means that he will need to be able to hold down a good job and be okay with sacrificing some luxuries like expensive meals and vacations while our family is still young. On the other hand, I will do everything in my power to make sure that when he returns home from work, Daddy is the center of our world; I want to have family game nights and dinners together. After the kids go to bed, I want to spend one-on-one time with the man that I fell in love with; I want to maintain a feeling of love and lust between us on both a sexual and emotional level.
I feel like I have rambled on long enough and exposed more of myself than what is really needed but hopefully this gives you an insight of who I am and what I want. If you have made it this far and are still reading, I hope that it means that I have said something that interests you. If you are in a similar mindset as me and would like to see if we connect, please send me a message. I do have one request though; please give your message some substance. I will ignore messages that just say something like "Hey beautiful. How are you?" or "What's up?' or "y r u still singl' Please take a few extra minutes and tell me something about yourself or ask questions that show that you actually read my profile.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I do not think that I am a difficult person when it comes to dating. A dinner and maybe a movie, mini golf, bowling, or a walk around the lake just talking sounds like a great time to me. I just want to have fun, get to know you, and maybe end the night right: plans for a second date.
