About Me
*UPDATED 10/11/09*

40 year old, professional, honest, spontaneous, loveable, and lonely! I would love to meet someone who will become my best friend. I enjoy talking and getting to know someone.

I offer good, old-fashioned romance with lots of passion and spontaneity. I love big hugs, hand-holding, and PDA! I think a man who cooks is sexy, and a man who tinkers in his "man cave" AND cooks is irresistible!

I have been married once, and divorced for ten years. Simply put, I am ready to meet the love of my life.

I have a decent job, and I'm not looking for a sugar daddy. I am looking for a gentleman who appreciates and respects my independence and my vulnerabilities. Yes, a modern-day, independent, do-it-all Superwoman does have fears and weaknesses she hides from most of the world...*smiles*

I enjoy a variety of interests and activities...tail-gating and fine dining, movies and live theatre, politics and camping. I have a 12 year old daughter who lives with me and visits her dad regularly. One of my goals with her is to visit all 50 states before she graduates from high school.

I know men and women need different things, although I don't pretend to understand why the Good Lord made us that way...LOL! I also believe that when it can take your breath away, scare the hell out of you, and make you crave more all at the same time.

Guys...I'm so confused...some of your profiles say, "If you are more than 20 lbs overweight, you have more than a few extra lbs." I am more than 20 lbs overweight, so I list myself as BBW. Problem with that is, many of you just view and never make contact...or don't even read the message I send before deleting it. But then when I do meet a guy, he says, "You are not a are beautiful!"...see what I mean? LOL...I have lost 70 lbs this year, but I'll never be HWP...LOL. I am soft and curvy, and very comfortable in my own skin. I don't make any apologies or excuses for being the woman God made me. I feel SEXY and BEAUTIFUL just the way I am. I just try to take care of what I have and enjoy looking good for myself and my fella!

I don't want to turn you off by listing all of my "dislikes". I really don't have very many, but I do have my standards. I truly try to respond to every message I receive, but this is what I look for when I am talking to someone:

1. I am financially independent. I really would prefer that you be financially independent too. I don't want you to take care of me, and I have my hands full with a kiddo.

2. My idea of a nice first, second, or even third date does not include me cooking dinner...especially if I really like you. My cooking will not impress you, and I want to impress you. :-)

3. The center of my world is my daughter. If you have kiddos, I know you understand. If you don't have kiddos, no problem..but please understand that kiddos require time, attention, tolerance, and patience. I have to make decisions that not only affect my life, but also hers. And nobody likes being reminded about our weaknesess as parents. We all spoil our kids, and we all give in at times, and we all feel guilty because we can't be perfect.

4. I am divorced. That means I don't have to ask you to be patient while I work through emotions, finances, custody agreements, attorney visits. I also won't look to you to be a rebound relationship. "Separated" means that you are still working through issues in a marriage. I would love to talk to you once you get those issues resolved.

5. And last but not least...just because I don't fall into bed on the first date does not mean I am frigid. Chemistry is evident way before moving to the bedroom, and anticipation is an amazing aphrodisiac. :-)

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
MMMMMMMmmm...a first date...I ask that it be in a public place, preferably in the afternoon...just until we get to know each other. Beyond that...surprise me!
