I was born and raised in Bloomington Indiana, but have been in New York and North Carolina for about the past decade. I grew up very active in sports, spent nearly all of my free time on top of a horse, played volleyball in college, and spent about seven years in the Army. I am back home again in Indiana (A if you recognize the pun there) and am finally getting settled down from being on the move for what feels like forever! Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling and seeing new things, but there is nothing like having everything you own right where you want it to be, so that come Saturday afternoon you have nothing to do than jump in the car to see if you can’t get lost. On the traveling front, my passport is pretty well rounded. The most notable places include Jamaica (just because of red stripe, sunshine and I swear you can hear Bob Marley resonating off the clear-blue water), Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia. I’ve also been nearly all over Europe, but have dreams of going to Bora Bora and Australia for at a minimum 10 days each (dream big, right)?
I cry during nearly all sad/dramatic/motivational movies and pretend like I'm not weeping by biting the heck out of my tongue. For example, the baby Clydesdale commercial on the Super Bowl, I cried like a baby! In contrast, I'm in a career field that requires me to be strong and forthright. I will say that it makes for an interesting dynamic in a relationship, with my being emotionally inclined but also being very independent. I have the clipboard and whistle gene, but also like to be able to take a back seat and let my manfriend lead the way.
I was in a relationship of which my son was born for about three and a half years, which unfortunately didn’t work out. That failed relationship helped me learn about myself and what I want from a relationship, so for that I am grateful. I also got the best gift I could have every dreamed of in the way of a healthy, happy, bouncing baby boy. I understand that dating a single mother is much more complex than a single woman, so no hard feelings at all if it’s not what you’re looking for.
Which I guess leads me to what I am looking for in a friend, date, partner, et cetera. Of course I want someone who is comfortable eventually being a part of a little boy’s life that isn’t his biological child. But I would love to meet someone who is a hard worker and appreciates that trait in their significant other. The other traits that I find important that are pretty much clich?d at this point are (in no particular order) intelligent, trustworthy, trusting, spontaneous to some extent, funny and active. I think it’s pretty hard to put buzz words to what you’re looking for, but essentially what I would love to find on here is someone who loves his mother but doesn’t feel the need to sleep on her couch for the rest of his life. Someone who values his friendships and someone who most of those friends would say he is, “a really good dude.” Someone who has had some adventures in their life and would like to find someone to have more adventures with. Someone who can throw on work pants and get dirty outside hiking or camping or working and then scrub fingernails, lather up and look like shiny new penny to go out for dinner and drinks.
