My confession: I don't like dating. Not because I'm in a rush to settle down, but because I'm a pretty logical person and there's much of dating that defies reason. I don't enjoy having to sift through who's genuine and who's not. However, I do like feeling connected with someone, looking forward to talking to or seeing him, and sharing experiences with him. And I recognize that's not something that comes without some patience.
I am intelligent, motivated, somewhat sarcastic, someone that believes in doing the right thing just because it's right, and loyal sometimes to a fault. I'm very easy going, until I'm pushed one too many times :) On the surface, I may come across as reserved, but what you really see is a woman taking things in. I'm no shrinking wallflower, nor am I by any means conceited. I'm just someone that uses discernment. I recognize that I have something special, and I'm saving it for someone that can appreciate it an offer the same. At this stage in my life, I'm where I hoped to be in many ways. I have two beautiful children, I have some wonderful friends that can make me laugh down to my core, I have a job where my opinion is truly appreciated, I make a difference, I get to interact with so many different kinds of people, I'm respected and I get to put my best assets to use. But I'm not finished yet. There's still plenty I want to do, and it would be nice to have someone special be a part of that.
I'm in no rush, but I'd be interested in someone that is willing to take the time to see if we have a real connection and understands what it's like to juggle multiple priorities. As a professional woman, I prefer someone that has similar ambitions. Someone that I can talk to about those tough days at work and be able to reciprocate. I like a man with a quick wit, a kind heart, who is confident, attractive, and puts thought into the way he presents himself. That's the kind of man that makes me enjoy dating.
I've met some interesting people so far, and I tend to fare well when faced with a challenge, so I look forward to the possibilities.
