I enjoy my life and grateful for the experiences and people I’ve been gifted with so far. My personal characteristics would probably be described by those who know me as strong-minded, assertive, open minded, loyal, fair, and I also hear well-balanced. I try to make time for all of the areas of my life that are important. I work hard while at work; I spend a significant amount of time with my children doing typical daily things and trying to create positive and memorable experiences; join in family events and extracurricular activities; and, am getting back to making personal (adult) time for me to do the things that I enjoy whether alone or in company. Maintaining a healthy balance of all these areas is the story of my life.
In a man, I am looking for someone to share and experience life with. I know I have a good foundation with a lot to offer a man who wants similar things in life. I hope to meet someone who has that too...someone that I complement and who complements me...someone I can learn from and someone I can teach...someone to grow with. There are some qualities that I know I want in a mate (honesty and a desire to grow), but I try not to be too narrow with it because I don't know who will be put in my life. I really want to be great friends with my mate, while also feeling madly in love with him and hope that feeling is mutual. Sharing a vision of a future together is important, while continuously adding to or altering the vision as we live and learn together.
I am a very independent, some of which is important for me to maintain. For the greater part, that is a quality that I like about myself. I am not emotionally needy. It is not difficult for me to give someone space in a relationship and, likewise, I need to have a little time for myself. The down side of the independence is that it can be lonely at times, as I do not always quickly let people get to know me. In an ideal relationship, we both would maintain some independence and sense of self, while simultaneously longing to share with one another--that is possible isn’t it?
