***MUST LIVE IN METRO ATLANTA***
Thank you for stopping by. Let me say this is by no means all of who I am but at the least, it will allow you to get some idea “if/when we speak.” Sure, most people can type but the proof comes after you have spent time in that persons presence. I would describe myself as a confident and sociable person so meeting people isn't an issue for me. I have a 6 year old little girl who is the love of my life next to God. Although work and parenting keeps me busy, I still desire to spend time with a nice gentleman. I believe you need to have balance in all areas of your life. Online dating is so out of the box especially on a free site. I am going to try this for a little bit longer; however this time I am going to have to be more specific. Hopefully I can bypass all the junk mail. POF offers a lot of quantity but lacks quality. From time to time, I have the opportunity to enjoy good conversation. Where is the follow through though? Do people really want to send messages back and forth all day? If that's you, please pass me up.
First and foremost, establishing friendship with someone is important to me. If a connection is made in the interim, wonderful and if not I am totally okay. The right situation will not have to be rushed. Things will just blossom organically. Experience is the best teacher sometimes. Throughout life I can say it has taught me that communication, honesty and respect for each other is a critical to any relationship. I am at a happy place in my life right now. I have the love of the Lord, I have no drama/stress in my life, I am healthy, my career is on track and I am surrounded by a family that loves me. Whomever God blesses me with will emulate that and some. Meeting someone who is secure with himself is key for me. My independence is a part of who I am; however I still want my man to "be the man." As a man likes to feel he's needed, a woman likes to feel safe and secure in his presence. I believe that a relationship is a partnership and we should both have each other’s back. When I am into someone, I am totally committed him.
My Attraction ---- I am attracted to a man that is groomed and knows how to put himself together for any occasion. I can appreciate a man that is classy but has that edge as well. I love a man who stimulates me mentally and can discuss any topic. A man who not only professes he loves God but you know God is in his life by his behavior. I am attracted to a man who is consistent in all areas of his life. If you have children and are in their lives or raising them on your own, that is a plus for me. It means you can understand & appreciate the hard work of a single parent. I love a family oriented man as family is most important to me. I am not a homebody and enjoy fun things out with my man but I can also chill and have a quiet evening with him. I enjoy taking trips near and far. Hopefully the person I meet has an active passport because I enjoy traveling. I've been to a lot of places but it would be nice to meet someone who can turn me on to somewhere new. I always welcome new experiences as long as they are positive ones. I love all types of live music, the beach, sporting events and working out together. Lastly, we all have a love language. If you’ve ever read the best seller “The Five Love Languages,” I will share that I am more of language #2 & a strong #5. Hmmm, you’re probably wondering huh? Anyway, let’s see what happens. All the best and thanks for stopping by.
My New Disclaimer - After reading the first line below if it's clear this doesn't apply to you, just skip it. I am sorry this has to be said and by no means am I attempting to tear anyone down. This MUST be said in order to get different results. No judgments please. I see men who do this all the time.
Please come with only good intentions. I am responsive to men that speak well and know how to at least put nouns and verbs together. I am responsive to men who take good care of their bodies. Sure, we all have something that we may want to work on, I get that. Some women are okay with short men. I am not that woman. Some women are fine with heavy men or the ones that checked "a few extra pounds.” I am just not one of them and I probably won’t reply. Again, we all have preferences. My desire isn’t to have someone eventually grow on me. Missing teeth, gold teeth and neck tattoos kill it for me. Can you tell I am over it by now? I could add more but I think I more than drove my point home. Again, this is a free website so I may be asking a bit much.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something nice yet simple for the first date. If we are feeling the vibe, we can go from there.
