I've experienced enough of life, love, and loss to know what I really want in a relationship. I've learned from my past and found myself to be grounded because of it. I can be candid in my opinions and upfront, but I find that way my partner doesn't have to guess what I'm thinking or feeling. Currently in the divorce process, I expect it to be finalized in April or May.
Traveling abroad to amazing places like Hawaii has always been a treat. Even abroad, I've been to places like Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Mexico and Canada. The one thing I've been missing is that special lady to share it with. At home, my kids take priority when they're with me, and I'd need to find someone who has the patience needed to raise children.
The woman I'm looking for has her life already in place. I have a chaotic schedule in my line of work, so when I have free time, I want us to spend it with her. She's accepting of me and willing to make me a priority in her life too. Just as I will support her, I want someone who will recognize my goals for the future and work with me in achieving them.
She has to love the outdoors and not be afraid to be taken care of. Ideally someone who is independent enough and capable of caring for herself but knows that she doesn't have to go at it all on her own. I need a strong partner who is willing to be my friend, companion, and lover while being able to be my strongest cheerleader and occasionally my toughest critic.
