People say I am a nice person who values family and life, but who would say otherwise. I try to enjoy all of what life has to give. I have two children , 17 & 11, that I adore and I have a stable job, which I understand is a good quality these days. I speak what is on my mind and most people will tell you I don't hold much back. Honesty ranks very high on my qualities list. I enjoy hiking, I also like walking even if it is just around the neighborhood. I love animals and have two dogs and a rabbit. I like to travel, even if it is just to an amusement park for a long weekend. I like many types of movies, in the theater or curling up on the couch. I also enjoy a few TV series. I am on the computer alot lately but would rather be outside. I like most types of music and what I listen to often reflects the mood I'm in. I am not on medication to behave, however, like most women, I could probably use it once a month. As you can read, I have a sense of humor as well. I enjoy being out with my friends and believe in quiet time. I could go on but if you've read this far and I spark some interest, wink me and we can carry on. I am looking for my next best friend. A great relationship starts with a great friendship and that means someone who can listen as well as hold a conversation. As I said before, honesty is key since that is the basis of trust and a relationship will not last without trust. Someone who values families, likes kids and animals. I am looking for a man who knows how to treat a woman, a gentleman. Someone who opens doors, buys a few flowers once in awhile, or whatever else might strike the mood. I am looking for a romantic who also has a good sense of humor and someone who can associate with all walks of life (down to earth w/ some class.) Someone who likes to have fun. I do not want someone who uses alcohol or any other drug to live or ease his pain. If you feel the need to abuse things to make you feel better about yourself, don't bother to respond. I know this may sound harsh but I am just being upfront.
