I recently moved back to Ohio, but am a 'born-again' Southern girl! I lived in GA for 11 years but moved back to be near and care for my ailing mother. I eventually plan to move south again one day. I love warm weather and sunny days. I believe in life-long learning and strive to continually grow as a person as well as intellectually. I like to laugh, so my ideal partner would have a good sense of humor and be able to kick back and relax. He would also know when to take life serious. I am a 'straight shooter' and prefer the same from my partner; honest, upfront, & genuine in the way he treats people. I like to be active and would like a partner who also values health and fitness (No couch potatoes!). I would like to live life to the fullest but sometimes get caught up in the rat race of life. I would enjoy being with someone who could help bring this out in me more, someone with a spirit of adventure. As mentioned before, I have two young daughters and an ailing mother, so he should be considerate and respectful of these things- family-oriented. I believe myself to be a nice combination of working woman and domestication. I can (and do) cook well and take care of my house and family. I am definitely a city girl having lived in Atlanta, so I do enjoy going out and having a good time and all that bigger cities have to offer. I really respect people who are motivated and ambitious; those who know what they want and go after it instead of sitting back waiting for it to happen for them. My ideal match would be some one who is looking to spend their life with a best friend having fun and making mistakes and learning about life together, inspiring one another.
