"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman." ~ Anais Nin
Hobbies - I like reading - a lot. But would like to get out more now that I'm single. I love going to concerts, baseball games (go Giants!), and anything that peaks my interest. My life has been about being the best Mom I could be in the past few years, and I'm happy with the result. Now, I'd like to still do that and have a little "me" time / fun as well.
Goals / Aspirations - to be happy.... make that HAPPIER. =) It's taken a long time for me to accept who I am "as is" and be okay with the result. And you know what?! I'm frickin' AWESOME!
What makes me unique - all sorts of things that can't be described in a short description. Honestly, it's that I love people very much and want to know and learn as much as I can from them. My friends all come to the same nickname for me - Voice of Reason. =)
Music - rock, classic rock, country, classical, blues, blue grass, etc. I don't like putting this in a box, as it would cut me off to anything wonderful and new. Motown, however, always melts me.
Things I don't like - shopping. Hardly ever. o.O
Things I do like - guys that are comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, as well as a suit (if needed). Not a requirement, but dark hair and dark eyes slay me.
Friends first sounds lovely and about my pace. If there is chemistry, more to come.
ADDED NOTE: I've received some flack that I maintain a civil relationship with my ex-husband for my daughter's sake. If holding onto anger is something that interests you, go ahead and keep fishing. I don't have the energy for it.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Anything involving the consumption of coffee. :-) (it's my only addiction)
