I am a stable, sane woman who is seeking a relationship after taking a break from the dating world for an extended period of time. I have no baggage, drama or desire for any. I am divorced several years now, and while I am very independant and happy enough being on my own, getting to point where happy enough isn't enough.
Looking for a man who has his perverbial $*!t together. Someone who has a place to live and pays their bills and can get around. I take care of myself in all of those aspects and I would like someone to grow with rather than someone to save. I don't need saving. I am a kind, funny, generous, tough, just a smidge OCD, dog-lover, fairly active (excercise 3-5x a week), smart, outspoken, strong-willed REAL woman. I have curves and I have some balls, as well. I always want things to be fair. I am a Phillies fan. I have red hair and blue eyes and wear a size 10 dress and stand 5'4". I work retail hours and my days off are during the week. I love seafood and Italian food. Pet peeves include spelling and grammer mistakes, animals dressed as humans and people who act stupid on purpose. Sometimes I can be blunt and my friends will tell you that I am not their nice friend, I'm their honest one.
I would be most attracted to a tall, confident man, who is funny and likes to do some of the fun things I like: kayaking, beachwalking, bicycling, baseball games, concerts, great meals and good conversations. I am not a barfly (hence trying alternative methods of meeting people) but do love a day or night on a deck somewhere with good friends and a couple beers or glass of wine. I am fairly intelligent and would appreciate the like. I read books and sometimes take classes for the heck of it, so I need a man who can hold a conversation on almost any subject. Must love dogs and 4-tu-O ok. I am most attracted to men near my age. I am very affectionate when the chemistry is there. I am looking for a man who doesn't mind taking some time to get to really know another person.
I am a sexual person, but I am not interested in a casual sex scenario. I am seeking a real connection with a real man. I have a beautiful soul and would love someone to share it with.
So, I am curious to see if anyone can relate to this. I just spent, I don't know, at least 4-5 minutes drafting this. Replies with little to no effort will recieve the same in kind. I like to be spontaneous sometimes, so someone local would be preferred.
Do any smart, funny, cute men actually read these things? If you've come this far, perhaps you will go a little further...
