Beyond my children and family, I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, mountaintops, waterfalls, great views and cozy cabins. I'm a single mom of two fantastic girls ages 8 and 11 looking for a man of integrity to date. I'm seeking chemistry and a connection beyond a friend with benefits.
I enjoy fall and winter, especially pursuing seasonal fun like apple picking or snow tubing. I love the wind rustling the leaves, sunshine on my face and a crispness to the air. A wintry landscape covered in snow melts my heart.
Hoping to find a guy who feels the same about the outdoors and wants to explore with me on my free weekends.
I love football and root for the Texans along with my Houston Cougars. I'll try to be respectful of whatever silly team you support. :-) I decorate like crazy for holidays, prefer country or classic rock music, like to read and am suspicious of all electronic gadgets because they often like to baffle me. I grew up in Texas and still miss my Lone Star State.
I am blessed with a great family I am very close to, amazing children, close friends, a good job and the opportunity to live in this wonderful country. I believe strongly in being kind to others and being responsible for your own happiness.
I attend church regularly (though not radically) and say a few prayers every day. My love language is physical touch followed by acts of service. What's yours?
I hope you'll say hi if you have similar interests, are sincere, reliable and comfortable with a single mom. I love kids, so if you have them too, that's great. Honesty and integrity are very high on my list of requirements. Chemistry is as well. I'm NOT seeking just a platonic pal.
You should know that I'm a heavy girl, but I'm also fit. I work out five days a week and enjoy being active.
I'm a writer. If you can communicate only in sentence fragments or if a whole bunch of words on the screen freaks you out, you should move on.
Quick note: If you send me a message with only "hey there" and no other dialogue, I probably won't answer unless you're Channing Tatum or Dwayne Johnson, and I think they're already taken. Not trying to be mean. I just appreciate men who make an effort.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
The meet-and-greet at Starbucks comes before a first date. Let's keep it casual--no stress or worries the first time we meet. If it works, we'll move on from there. Remember: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
