I am just a gal just thought I would try out match.com and check out the dating scene. I am a bit shy at first but open up slowly later. I am friendly out going and down to earth. My ideal date would be someone who will accept me for who I am. I don't want to be played on or used/abused. I would describe myself as friendly, caring, and respectful. I do have morals and have self respect. I prefer my date to hold similiar expectations, values, and morals as me, and of course they need to like kids. I have a 11year old daughter. My life is pretty much a full time mom. I am a single parent. I had also recently bought a new house. I also like to go out and do things and to be a social butterfly now and then. I am going to finish college and hope to graduate with my degree by spring or fall 2013.
