I would have to say that I have been avoiding dating sites for a long time, but there really isn't a good place to meet someone now days.
A little bit about me.....
I am a Special Education Teacher working in a Social, Emotional, Behavioral Classroom during the week, and I bartend on Friday nights. I am outgoing, trustworthy, respectful, energetic, laid back, hard working, and drama free. If I am interested in someone I can appear to be shy at first, but once I get to know them I tend to open up more. I am very easy to get along with and I can be sarcastic at times, so a good personality is a plus.
Some things I enjoy are spending time with my family and friends, going on day or weekend trips, watching and going to sporting events, traveling, going to the casino, and playing golf (not mini golf, but actually playing 18). I like to go on a trip at least once a year. I believe that if you work hard, you can take some time to travel and see the world.
I consider myself to be an independent person. I am looking to buy a house soon (still looking for the right one). I would like to meet someone that shares some of my interests and who would like to settle down one day and have a future together. I will admit that I do have a tough time relaxing and usually feel the need to be doing something, but I can stay in and relax on the couch as well. On a typical weekend if the weather is good I would probably play golf early Saturday afternoon and see what was in the works for Saturday night (whether it be go out to dinner, get drinks, or just staying in with good company). Sunday depending on the time of the year could be anything from going to see my niece, watching football, going to the beach, going on a day trip, or just staying in. I am usually up for anything.
I believe that as long as both people in a relationship are honest and trust each other, then everything else should fall into place if you are a good match. So what is it that I am looking for? Well, I consider myself to be an honest person as well as a realist, and I don't think I'm asking for much when I say I would like to meet someone that has not only a job, but a career. I prefer being with someone that knows what they will be doing for work rather than just going from job to job because they don't know what they want to do.
It would be nice to meet someone who does not have issues with trust because of a relationship gone bad in the past....lets remember that I am not a confrontational person at all. Someone who wants to do things together but also does not get upset if we are not together 24/7. Lastly, I am looking for someone who basically can be in a relationship but is also a best friend at the same time.
If any of the above seems to interest you, feel free to let me know.
