This is my first crack at online dating. I don't really believe you can find love with a checklist, but here I go.
I'm looking for a partner to "entertain me" through life, while I vow to return the service. Sounds silly, but think about it . . You don't want to just open up to someone who you find boring. You want someone who invigorates you and maybe even aggravates you sometimes, but you love him to death and trust him with your feelings.
Sure, you need some common interests and you want a man with direction in life, but it's really about the chemistry and compatibility, and we'll figure out if we have that with time.
Here's some checklist material girls: I am divorced with an 11 y.o. daughter. She lives with my ex, but I see her every week and she means the world to me. If our dating leads to something more, I would like for us all to enjoy our time together. She fits the category of being "entertaining" herself.
I'm open to different situations regarding children: partner who either has a child, wants to have a baby, or does not want to have one but is willing to share time with my girl.
My Golden Retriever is part of the package too. She is the sweetest dog in the world!!!!!, but she does shed and has stinky breath :(
