So here I am! This is all very new to me, and I really don't know what to say or where to begin, but here goes.
I am currently in the process of a surprisingly amicable divorce, which should be finalized in the next month or so (by May definitely!). My friends encouraged me to check out this site as I don't go to bars and, in their opinions, need to meet new people. I very much agree. I am very focused on my profession and on the other people in my life, and I often neglect to make sure I take care of myself in terms of personal needs.
I have a variety of interests and things that I enjoy, including in no particular order: films and movies, and discussions related to such; music of all types; playing acoustic guitar; reading almost anything but especially Stephen King; walks; beaches; watching sports (I am more knowledgeable than the average bear in this department and used to love to listen to Mike and the Mad Dog); swimming (obviously); meeting new people and practical jokes. I have what I consider to be a pretty good sense of humor, I can laugh at myself any time I deserve it, I love to mess with people (if they can handle it) and in general I think life should be fun and that we should laugh as much as possible. Having said all of that, I am more than willing to learn new things and hear different perspectives. I am not looking for my twin!
I have accomplished many things in my professional life, but my personal life definitely needs to catch up! I am a well-educated single mother and I love sharing life with my son. I am looking to meet someone who excites me and who is socially outgoing and independent. I want to find someone who is confident and likes a good laugh, someone who sees the humor in life and doesn't take himself too seriously. I want someone who isn't shallow. If you look at my one lame picture and write me off based upon that, not only are you missing the boat, but you are not interesting to me based upon your superficiality. If I have learned nothing else in my life, it is that sometimes we misjudge and miss out. Most importantly, my Mr. Right needs to respect himself and be a positive influence in my child's life. I am open to just about anything as long as you are a good person who is honest and sincere.
If you are interested in striking up a conversation, please let me know. I check out this site a few times a week, and would be more that willing to chat with you and see what happens. Good luck to all of you, myself included!
