So, after being on this site before I have concluded that I need to edit the first few paragraphs of my profile so here it goes:
I don't believe in sex before marriage and at this point in my life, although I AM looking for a committed relationship, I am not really sure I ever want to be married again. So, if you're looking for a cute gal to have "that" kind of fun with, sorry but move on!! If you've cheated on your spouse in your past or abandoned your children I'll have difficulty respecting you, so it would be a waste to e-mail me. I also don't enjoy men who get drunk, smoke pot, or abuse any other type of drugs, legal or illegal (that includes steroids!!!) If pictures on your profile include part of another girl (unless of course it's you mother, daughter, sister, or other important relative) or you holding up your own phone in the mirror to take a picture of your naked torso, DON'T EVEN BOTHER "winking" much less messaging me. Lastly, if you send me an e-mail please include more depth than "what's up", otherwise don't expect a reply.
Whew!!!! NOW that all of THAT is out of the way and if you've made the cut this far AND haven't felt the need to click another profile by now, you must be a very brave man!!!! Lol. I invite you to keep reading to find out more about me!!!!
I'm a rather simple gal. On most evenings one would find me at home doing puzzles, reading books, or watching tv with my son. He's my light and the main reason that I try to live my life with purpose. I have vowed to raise a strong man with integrity and strength, yet sensitive to the needs of others. But I, not unlike most single parents, have trouble balancing work and being the perfect mother....
I find beauty in the simplicities of life. The sound of the rain is one of the most beautiful sounds of nature that one could ever hear. The sound of REAL wood in a fire place is a pleasure that brings such warmth to cold dreary days. Sitting in the country and counting the endless number of stars in the sky is UNBELIEVABLE! My son's smile gives me a joy like I never knew I could experience. Hugs from my mother bring me comfort and peace. Of course I'm a girl so I too love to dress up and be charmed with romantic dinners and beautiful gifts. What woman wouldn't love that??!! But truly, when someone sends me a card in the mail or brings me my favorite drink from sonic, I'm pleased to just be remembered.
I have a weird balance of romanticism and skepticism all wrapped up into one. I once believed in the idea of "forever after" now I believe that you should enjoy the time you have today because forever is too far removed to focus on. My friends often can't make sense of me. I've also been told that I keep people on their toes but most like that.
I've been told several times through the years that my smile can light up a room, a comment I blew off and never understood until I had my son. His smile is in fact similar to mine and wow!! He melts my heart entirely. Maybe I do have an okay smile after all! :-)
What I do know for sure is that I'm determined. Once I've made up my mind it's almost impossible to stop me from attaining a goal. This is the attitude that has often created major anxiety in my life and yet pushed me to achieve some major dreams. Someone recently told me that if I made my mind up to move a mountain, I really could do it. It kind of made me laugh but they're right. It's nothing special that only I have within. It's something special that we all possess.
