This is the first online dating site I have joined. I swore I would never do it, but after watching a friend at work meet someone online, I thought I'd give it a try.
I'm an educated but laid back and fun woman. I enjoy quiet evenings at home and fun weekends out. I enjoy traveling, playing with kids, reading, time alone, time with family, animals, talking and texting in bed. I'm an urban girl, so while I love to travel to secluded quiet places, the every day me enjoys the city, the local restaurants, and community found in great towns. I truly love talking about social programs, social justice, and the politics surrounding all things, but I am passionate about my liberal beliefs. I have a very 'diverse' family that is also far to the left and thus unless one is willing to accept that part of me, they won't find me as a partner. It's not that I'm not tolerant of others, but what some call sinful, I call family. Outside of that serious side of me, I love to have fun and laugh and would love to enjoy an evening watching TV by the fire with someone special again.
As you can see from my pictures, I have two daughters. One is 26 and is in graduate school at George Washington University and the other is 9 and in the 3rd grade. And, yes, I realize the HUGE age difference. I was way too young when I had my first daughter. I raised her alone, working and going to college. I figured I would never get married or have any more children, but obviously that plan failed...in many ways :-) My daughters are like their mother in many ways. My oldest is studying public health and peace and conflict and wants to one day go back to Africa to save the world. I totally support her desire to save the world and if anybody can do it, she can! My youngest is the mini me version. She's a typical red head so she can challenge the hell out of me, but oh is she funny and cute. She's not the Tom boy I was as a child, but otherwise her rebel, anarchist ways are so me thus we do well together.
I'm back to being a single parent. It's much easier this time though which I'm grateful for.
I'm looking for someone who can compliment my life and NOT complicate it. I work too much and have very limited free time, so. I'm not into playing games. I want a reason to work less, to laugh more, smile more, and enjoy life with someone special. I miss holding hands and just feeling safe.
I don't know what else to say....so if you would like to know more then you will need to email me I guess.
