Im not looking for someone to make me happy...just happier. Ending a relationship is never easy and at 44 I never thought I would have to start over after 12 years. I want to find someone that can enjoy life and not sweat the small stuff. Save your energy for the stuff that really matters! I have a 20 yr old son and a 18 yr old daughter who are my life! They are my everything. Im looking for someone who is successful and is able to travel. My friends think Im too organized for my own good...but its what makes my life function. Im very clean and everything has a place. I take pride in myself and like to look good. I would appreciate the same in a partner. I love my sweats and my hair up and a glass of wine after a long day. But love to dress up and have a nice dinner out too. Im a planner, but would like someone who is a little spontaneous to get me to live a little. Of course I love to laugh and i love to make people laugh. Im looking for someone who has time. Ive spent many years "waiting around" and I want to start living my life with someone who wants to have quiet evenings at home on the couch together drinking wine in our sweats making out. The simple things that are important in life. Someone who wants to be together on the weekends and not so busy that im last on the list. I will make you a priority and respect the same in return. I am a very independant and strong woman and can hold my own. Just want someone who can handle that. I want someone who is a family man and respects his mother. Someone who knows how to treat a lady and can be kind to strangers. Is a animal lover even if they dont have any. Be trustworthy, and can be trusted. I feel I am all these things and can offer a guy love, respect and loyalty. If we cant be friends first, nothing can follow. I want to spend the rest of my days with my best friend.
