I am a no frills kind of person, and I like to just be me. I do not like to feel like I have to pretend to be someone I am not, and I do not like being around people who feel the need to pretend to be someone they are not. If I am in a healthy relationship with someone I care about, where someone treats me with respect, and treats me like I matter, I will be the most loyal, faithful person ever. I am an active person, I like to be out and do things, although I am not necessarily a social bug....by nature, I tend to be a little on the shy side when first meeting someone, but once I am comfortable, I can have deep conversations, or I can be extremely silly as well.... I have kids, and my kids are very important to me, so I need to meet someone who can embrace the fact that I am a mother. I also love animals of all types: dogs, cats, horses, birds. Once someone is near and dear to my heart, it stays that way , and I would do just about anything for those I love. In fact, I could say that some have taken advantage of my selfless nature.....I was very athletic growing up, and have gotten quite out of shape in the past 2 to 3 years......I would love to meet someone who enjoys exercising and being outdoors. I am looking for companionship with the possibility of a relationship, and I believe in committment....so if you are a player, or looking to "hook up", please do not waste your time on me. You will be doing just that......wasting your time.
