I am fun loving and adventurous but am also thoughtful, a good listener and am not afraid to express myself. I am dedicated to my career but balance it well with my family. I am self-sufficient but would love to have someone to share daily experiences with. I am looking for someone who is confident in themselves and their abilities and proud of their accomplishments but is able to see the value of having a loving partnership with someone. I love good food, music and travel but need quiet days at home with family as well.
So the above is me in a nutshell which I wrote upon first joining. It is a good synopsis but there is more to me than that.
I love being outdoors - boating or just being by the water is first & foremost, taking a walk comes in a close second (whether it is a leisurely walk or hiking), and like working in the garden/yard (favorite job was one I had as a teenager working on a golf course). I love going to the movies. I love going to museums, historical sites, aquariums, and amusement parks. My favorite vacations are ones that are relaxing and not too planned but offer ways to learn about the area & it's history. I am involved in the local VFW (my dad is a WWII veteran) and have a great appreciation/admiration for those who serve our country and their families.
I have two amazing kids; a 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. I share custody with their dad who is a great father. We live in the same school district so they are able to spend two days a week with me and every other weekend.
I am looking for someone who can make me laugh (my sense of humor is kinda goofy, often sarcastic, a little edgy and a tad dirty); someone who can challenge me to think outside of my own opinion during conversations (not confrontational but enlightening), someone to cook with (it's the experience not necessarily how great the food turns out...but I can make some good dishes!), someone that knows how to conduct themself in a professional/mature setting but is equally at home at the local pub or other casual atmosphere. Essentially, I am looking for someone to enhance my life and to grow with and to provide the same things to that person...experiencing things together and enjoying every moment of it.
