My friends say I am a bit quiet and reserved yet opinionated, candid at times and direct. I smile almost all the time but smile the most when caught off guard. I am most proud of my daughter and most grateful for true friendships. My social life is balanced and I am hoping to attract the same. I enjoy life's paths and laugh out loud most times as I stumble along them. Life is a journey and we are meant to stumble upon and over each other periodically otherwise how would we meet? Stumbling is meant to convey the unexpected twists and turns all of us face in life.
Straight Talk: Desirable Deal breakersI
Desirable: A gentleman who is classy, charming, chivalrous with impeccable behaviors and mannerisms (especially in public). Being able to communicate peacefully through talking over coffee, hot chocolate or bourbon/coke...etc, point being talk, not yell. Treating his partner like a lady and respectfully. Communication is a very important necessity in personal relationships.
Deal breakers: Men who are separated, taking a break, or looking for a fling; insecure, controlling, needy, creates drama to aggravate. I don’t care about your previous relationships and I am not them, so if you are not over/processed/dealt with your anger/bitterness from them, please do not contact me. Cutting with words and tormenting are not acceptable behaviors. Heavy drinkers, partiers, swingers, sarcastic condescending words or actions, obnoxious, over the top and finally loud men or the like are not good matches for me. Mind gamers and manipulating men are not for me either. Flaunting your body will not impress me. Physical attraction is important, however, I am interested more in your mind and intelligent conversation. Actions speak louder than words thus I compare the two and I am very intuitive, so I can tell when you are not being sincere. I will always treat you with respect, thus my expectation is the same of you of me. I am not interested in your wallet or your materialistic toys; this is a partnership, not a competition. Finally, competing with my daughter for my attention. A real man realizes raising children is a sacrifice that if done right is temporary, fully understanding that true partnerships stand the test of time. If you are the right person for me, accepting my daughter and understanding my responsibilities to her should be understood. Also, to the "want kids" question, I personally do not wish to deliver anymore children.
More about me: First and foremost, I am a single mother (sole custody) and my daughter is very important to me. I take that responsibility seriously. Second, I am secure and confident with my appearance and body. I make time for myself, as it is important to stay grounded and remember who I am. Participating in yoga, reading and running are my outlets. I am driven and always reach my goals. I am a kind, compassionate empathetic and an overly helpful person almost to a flaw. I strive to know as much as possible, learning something new everyday. I enjoy sports and wear sweats, jerseys and ball caps to games just like everyone else; my favorite college football team is the Michigan Wolverines. I love walking on the beach and visit the mountains in the winter months; I find them food for my soul. Speaking of food, my favorites are Italian and Mexican, however I am open to trying all types of cuisine.
My hope is that you will find this informative and able to get a good sense of the person I am as to make an informed and sincere choice. I realize this appears ridged and serious however as mentioned previously, I know what I am looking for and don’t wish to waste my time or yours.
