I love a sense of humor. I crack myself up sometimes and if you laugh at my cheesy jokes, I'll return the favor. I've worked around guys most of my life and have brothers so I can hang with guys and still act like a dignified lady when it's time. Sometimes I'm a little sarcastic; I can give it as well as take. A little verbal irony is all in good fun when properly placed.
I don't have kids or want my own, but if you have them and they're past the crying, pooping age, that's fine. I'm not the kind of woman who will step in and try to take over their mom's place, or tell you how to raise your kids.
I'm a big animal lover, dogs especially. I am intelligent. My partner would be the same - able to think and analyze and share our opinions. Brains are hot! I've finished Associate in Business this year. Eventually I'll work on my Bachelors in Accounting, but I've reached burnout mode and need a break. The IRS can wait for me!
I am independent, knowing that any relationship deserves time together as well as apart with friends. I own my own home and work full time to support myself. I think it's fair to split the bill on a date. Of course I love the chivalrous things, like getting flowers and having doors opened for me. I will spend time in the garage with you, getting my hands dirty, and still want the chance to put on the pretty dress and get all fancy to go out for the evening.
I'm looking for someone who has and can keep a job and generally wants to better himself. We get one shot at this life so let's go out having done the best we can with it.
Honesty is always a given. Once trust is betrayed I think it's hard to get that back.
My hobbies besides homework are working in my yard or on my house, the usual "outdoors, reading, movies" that most everyone says, doing things with my dogs, going to fairs, cooking, watching football. I love motorcycle rides in the country. Well ok, I don't have one anymore, but maybe you do. I've got curves/junk in da trunk, whatever, but that's not to imply that I'm a couch potato. I love to hike, work out and be active - I'm just a damn good cook! Not into bars all the time, but it's fun to go listen to live music, or to the club. I lean toward R&B/HipHop music but I'm okay with pretty much anything...Ludacris to George Strait - it's all good.
