I'm a successful career woman, mother of one great teenager and I'm new to match.com. I've resisted this online dating business for over a year now, but I've watched many friends develop enduring friendships and successful relationships, so I was finally talked into giving it a try. It didn't hurt that my daughter initially posted a profile for me. I'm an out doors kind of person, I like to take long walks, hike, go boating, toss a frisbee, play a game of softball or attempt a flip on a trampoline. I like canoeing, white water rafting, camping and am willing to try most other outdoor activities. Though I have to say, I'm not into fishing and I couldn't shoot Bambi.However, I have been shark fishing, tht was pretty exciting. I really enjoy live music and attending outdoor events, festivals, concerts...I like scenic places so its always my goal to make my yard my little oasis. I love gardening and grilling outside in the evening. I like exploring new places, experiencing new foods, cultures and learning.
My health is important to me. I like to stay in shape and I'm not fanatical, but conscious about what I eat. I like trying new recipes and when I dine out, I like ordering more healthy options on the menu. I like a bold red wine and appreciate a stout beer. My only addiction is the requirement for a strong cup of coffee upon wakening each morning.
I'm looking for a man with similar interest, but I like the idea of learning new things, so differences to me can be attractive. I'm interested in finding a guy that is both intellectually stimulating and down to earth. Its important that he have a successful career and goals for his future. I'm looking for a fellow who knows how to treat a lady, but who is not so caught up in role stereotypes that he never learned to prepare a meal or clean a house. I appreciate a man who can be comfortable in jeans or a nice suit, and I have to admit, I'm a sucker for the scent of a nice cologne. I like a man who doesn't take himself too seriously and who has a good sense of humor. I'm pretty intolerant of bigotry, prejudices, and dishonesty. I would like to do more traveling in the near future, and hope to find someone who has the flexibility to do the same. I think I would have more in common with someone who has experienced marriage in the past. Yes, please dont email me if your still married :) Im looking for a confident man. Ideally he should believe in God or at least be open to the idea.
