Hi there! I'm Maureen. I'm new to this online dating thing. I've been divorced for a couple of years now. I have two great kids and love being with them! I own my own business and have the opportunity to see the world. I have a fascination with Asia and the third world countries. There is something inexplicable about stepping off a plane in a third world country and seeing how so many people around the world live! I didn't realize just how much I took for granted as an American until I made my first trip! Anyway, I love to travel for business and pleasure. My idea of a good vacation is seeing all the back road spots. What it's really like to live there. I love to laugh and have a great sense of humor, I'm told. I almost always have a story to tell...or at least a bad joke! lol I think I have a rather dry sense of humor and have a gift for double entendre. I studied psychology as an undergrad at Notre Dame de Namur Universtity in Belmont, California. I am a real people lover. I'm a good guage of people. My sense is rarely wrong. I see everything and hear more than what is said, despite my incessant chatter. At the end of the day, I want a husband to come to. I have a happy life. I don't need a man to take care of me or complete me. I want a partner in life! One of the greatest joys one can have is to be witness to another's life. I want to be there to remember all the details of my man's life. I think it has more meaning when shared with someone else. I am extremely affectionate. Love to kiss and cuddle. Holding hands on a walk is one of my favorite things. So simple! One of the things I'm looking for in a partner is being able to share the simplest of things together and truly enjoy it. Sitting together at a little dive sharing a coke and just talking and laughing... dreaming about the future. Watching the kids play and sneaking those special looks and kisses when they aren't looking. I'm a true romantic at heart! I am intelligent and get bored and irritable quickly with people who aren't as intelligent as I am, though I love to be silly and just play and laugh. I need a man who is a good balance of intelligence/philosophy and light hearted. For some nitty gritty... I tend to over think things and not be spontaneous, so I'm looking for a man who has a good dose of spontenaity to offer. Since I lead with my head a lot, I want you to lead with your heart! As a woman in love, I give my all. I want the same in my man. So, if you think you can sweep me off my feet, PLEASE say hello! And, I prefer an email to a wink... make the extra effort... I'm worth it!!!!
