I am a social person. I like being out and about but also like being home as well. I want someone who compliments that. I like an "Alpha" male. I can do 50/50, but I don't want to be the man in the relationship.I like a guy's guy. People say I am quick witted and have a contagious smile. I like easy going people who can play and have fun but know when it's time to be serious as well. I want someone who can let me be me and just roll with life! I am wanting that "it" factor--I see relationships/family like a team. I want confidence, trust and consistency in a relationship. Just knowing you have that one person that has your back and to make life fun and entertaining along the way :).
I do have an eight year old son. I have him 2/3s of the time an he is my #1 priority. When the time comes, the person I am with will need to be a great role model and involved just as if my son were there own. I saw a quote once that said "Never settle for a man you wouldn't want your son to be like." So, those are my standards. With this said, I want to meet someone and develop our relationship first, then Mason (my son) will come in. I don't have men running in and out of his life.
Some things my friends have told me (and I would tend to agree with) that I need in a person is someone with a big personality and/or that can handle a little bit of sassiness. I also don't want a doormat. I need to be told no on occasion. Not in a bad way, just a man that can stand firm in his choices and just not leave it up to me all the time (again back to the alpha reference). With that said I am a nurturer by nature. If a man is good to me I will treat him like a king. I am not a bar fly, girly girl. I am independent and happy with my life. I am just ready to share it and do things with a male other half. I am extremely affectionate. If we are together, people will know I am with you. I want my man to be proud of me as I am of them and I don't want that to fade as time goes on. I believe you have to work hard at maintaining relationships but that is where the fun comes in. I want to find that genuine connection that will be the same year after year. I have been divorced for over five years. Ive dated, done things on my own, gone back to school, and really know who I am. Now it is time to move on to the next new beginning.
