Hmmm… How does one describe themselves on an online dating service? You're going to want to read that I'm independent and a hard worker (worked for the same company for 20 years, since I was 19 years old…if you are good at math you know that makes me 39). I love a cocktail on a Friday night in a pair of jeans that fit just right. I love exploring things off the beaten path. You're going to want to hear that I love all music, 80's, 90's, and even a little country. I would be lying if I said that my iPod didn't contain some Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and iCarly or Victorious songs (for my 10 year old daughter, of course) but I’d also be lying if I said that I hated it. You may want to know that I love a good laugh just about as much as anything else. If you think YouTube videos like “Bed Intruder” and “Honey Badger” aren't funny, then we probably aren't a good match because I laugh so hard I cry real tears when I watch those…every time.
If you like kids, then you'll want to hear that I have 1 daughter (age 10) who is a lot tomboy with just a hint of girly in her. I have full custody of her as her dad lives in California so my days are packed between working and being a mom. She is the most important thing in my life and the reason we moved to Colorado so she can attend a great school.
I recently relocated to the area after living my entire life in Southern California. My schedule has made meeting people difficult so I'm making an effort here in the hopes of at least making some friends that may have similar things in common.
What you may not want to hear is that I was married for over 8 years and have been divorced for 4 years. I am very protective of my daughter and our privacy so I tend to like to keep my social life and family life separate…at least at first. I am open to new things in what I am looking for in someone else but, the following are some of the qualities that I feel are most important to me. I respect a man that values his family above all else and understands the sacrifices that sometimes accompany being a parent. I love men who take pride in their careers and feel established. I like a man that that understands that simple, thoughtful gestures beat material gifts every time. And finally, I'm attracted to men that are confident without being cocky which is a fine line.
Hmmm...you may have stopped reading by now.....
