Here’s the honest-to-God truth: we all know what we want and we know it when we see it. , I’ve seen some pretty rad profiles and love that there's some real potential on here!
Anyways, about me? How the hell am I supposed to fit ME into this box? I'm not a big girl by any means (ha - not even close!), but I have a million things to say at any given time and couldn't possibly cram it into this space! I prefer the process of getting to know someone to be live and direct. But until we meet, here’s me in a ball-busting nutshell. Bottoms up!
Since turning the big 3-0, I feel I've finally hit my stride. I know what I want, am confident in it, and I'm not open to playing games, period. Five years ago I don't think I could have understood what any of that meant, but becoming a mother to a brilliant little boy has forever changed me in the best ways possible! I know the real meaning of responsibility and I embrace the struggles of adulthood for what they are.
If you're looking for a “damsel in distress”, I certainly am not one! That doesn’t mean I don’t like being whisked off my feet every now and then, but I’m very independent and go after what I want once I’ve set my mind to it. And what I've set my mind to is finding a partner who is loving and affectionate, a good listener, and mutually supportive. Relationships are give and take, but one without a foundation is a worthless venture. Mutual respect and admiration is a must, and I refuse to just settle.
My “ideal” man is one who challenges me to be a better person. I absolutely love a well-rounded man who is well-traveled and has a story for everything. I grew up as an only child (I have an older half-brother) and come from a small family, so a man who is very family-oriented is a major plus as it’s something I never really had. Likewise, I am fascinated with close families and the dynamics of siblings. I want to give my son some of his own, so I want a man who shares that sentiment. A single-dad wanting to grow his young family would be fantastic, but not a requirement - I'm open to a man with no kids as well. I'm simply looking for the man who complements the two of us, that being my son and I. ;) (Sidenote: not looking for a father for my son - he has one!)
He must be intelligent, intellectual and most of all, intuitive. What turns me on is a man who can take control of a situation and make it right, a man who is responsible, respectful and honest (ha, yeah right!). ;) Physical looks aren't a priority - I really do find the most random things sexy (chest hair and meaty shoulders, yes please!), and I also admire a man who drives a stick shift, or at least knows how to. A man who can cook on the stove and not in the microwave is a plus, too...and he must be a great BBQ'er! (Who else is gonna' roast my wiener?!)
I treasure spending time with my guy on the weekends but go back to the grind come Monday. There's nothing more enjoyable for me than an overnight getaway. I love spending time together with friends - dinner parties are awesome as well as pub crawls with a group. And traveling farther away is something I also love doing, so my guy must love to expand his horizons and get off the couch (okay, fine! I'll make an exception for Super Bowl!).
Pretty boys need not apply - metrosexual dudes, the same goes for you. If you get manicures, hair waxing of any kind, or any other miscellaneous spa-like stuff done, I am probably not interested. Massages are okay, just as long as I get one, too!
If you've read this far and think you can appreciate my wit, what are you waiting for?;) Let's do this! :)
