I am an old-fashioned, hopeless romantic who puts 100% into my relationships; I am devoted to the person I am with and want nothing more than to make him happy. I am fun, charming, flirty, affectionate, classy, adventurous, loyal, and have a great sense of humor. I am hoping for a longterm relationship with a companion who likes to have fun and enjoy each other's company, both exploring new places and cuddled up at home.
I'm quite the typical "girly-girl," who is most at ease in dresses and high-heels, but I love watching football on Sunday with my dad and a cold beer and I've yet to meet a DIY project I couldn't tackle myself with a screwdriver and some directions. Just because I prefer to dress with femininity doesn't mean I don't know when heels aren't appropriate, don't know how to work hard, or that I'm not comfortable in jeans. For me, it means I take pride in my appearance and always make an effort to look beautiful for my guy.
My friends describe me as a warm, loving, compassionate person--I am the one everyone else comes to with a problem because I am a great listener and always offer unwavering support. I am a caring person who enjoys taking care of my friends and family. Family is important to me and I like spending time with my parents and extended family.
I am also a mother to a beautiful daughter who keeps a smile on my face at all times. I've raised her on my own since she was six weeks old; I stopped worrying a long time ago about how I was going to do it, and just started doing it! I am so proud of the well-behaved, polite, bright, sweet little girl she has become. If you are worried about meeting someone with a "brat," this is definitely NOT the case here! Just know that I can compartmentalize the two aspects of my life: when I'm with my daughter, I'm 'Mommy,' but when I'm with my guy, I'm just like any other woman who wants to let loose and have fun! Sometimes a man's profile will say he isn't interested in a woman who has been married or who has children and I respect that, but we're not all horrible, lol; you might be pleasantly surprised if you take a chance!
I am looking for a loving, affectionate, and caring man with a great sense of humor. I definitely prefer men who open doors for women and who have nice manners--a man whose mother raised him right, lol! I give everything of myself in a relationship, so I would hope my partner will meet me at least half way and make an equal effort. I do like a man who is comfortable taking the lead in a relationship (I am fairly traditional), but I always make sure my guy knows how much he is appreciated; nothing is taken for granted here. I am very tactile and openly affectionate, and I'd love to meet a man who is the same. I am committed to doing the small things to let you know you're special, as well as surprising you with the grand gestures that tell you you are wanted. Someone who is honest and family oriented is ideal. I am open to building or blending a family with the right person. Bonus points if you're into working out and can help keep me motivated in my own exercise habits; I'd like to be a little less 'average' and a little more 'slender,' lol.
I'm open to individuals from all over, and while close proximity does make it easier to meet, I'm not about to limit my search for someone special to "within 25 miles" of my hometown. I would hope the right person will take a chance on the distance, as well.
I've never added a disclaimer before, but after a few odd experiences via Match, I am now: please be sure you are ready for a relationship! I.e. you have the time to devote to developing one, and please make sure you really are over your ex!
