Truth is, I'm just a nice girl (most of the time) who's looking for some fun and companionship (not necessarily in that order). I am new to Wilmington, moved from lower Fairfield County CT at the end of the summer. I love funny guys who can hold me spellbound with a story or make me laugh until I cry. Maybe it's your love of '80s movies, your baseball card collection or the fact that you hiked across Europe with only a back pack -- it doesn't matter. I also love creativity and passion, the right man not only fascinates me but also brings out the best in me. We push each other to be the greatest people we can be. If you're comfortable in your own skin, have a strong sense of self and aren't afraid to expose your flaws, I'm sure we'll get along just fine. But I will say that if you're, are a Jets fan, love to cook and have nice eyes, I'm already melting.
After an 8-year relationshipmarriage, I might be rusty about dating, but I'm not jaded by divorce. It's even clearer to me that there's not just one person out there. And even if you get lucky and meet a winner, there's a mountain of work ahead, no matter what. It's knowing that the work is worth it, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which redeems the institution of marriage. I'm not looking to jump into anything, but I'm a firm believer in chemistry and wouldn't turn my back on someone incredible just because I'm recently single. A perfect relationship is one in which the reality is not that far from your fantasy. As long as you have a realistic fantasy, you are bound to one day find your bliss.
You’re the type of guy who loves his life. If you’ve been on a bumpy road but come out on top, then we’ll have a lot in common! I’ve always been a sucker for guys in t-shirt and jeans. I’m dying to find a companion for wine and beer tasting and traveling. You don’t go along with the crowd. You’ve got an independent mind and love to use it to challenge your friends to think outside the box. I’d love to have a guy who feels like a best friend. You’re passionate about your interests and curious about mine, so we’d always have plenty to talk about and learn from each other.
My Ideal first date doesn't involve a chain restaurant, a roller coaster or a movie. It may involve eating, excitement or entertainment. It definitely involves me, you and a long, drawn-out moment where we don't want to say good night. I smile when I think of you. I walk down the street and I want to buy you that gadget you pointed out but would never get for yourself. You like my daughter and my dogs, you put up with my mom. (She means well; really, she does!) You fawn over me, cook me dinner, massage me before bed and have a highly developed sense of sarcasm. You make fun of me when I can't leave the house without forgetting at least one thing. You act younger than you look because I like mature men who haven't forgotten what it's like to be a boy.
I've learned that It's better to understand than to be understood. Laughter can save a relationship; lack of laughter can kill it. Having kids makes you a better person, but it will also complicate your relationship in ways impossible to understand from the outside. The NY Jets will tear your heart out, but it's fun to have something outside yourself to root for together. Soup can actually be an aphrodisiac if served at the right time of night. And finally, this being-single in a new town ,thing isn't going to be nearly as bad as I thought it might be...
