Who am I? I am the mother of a gorgeous 5 year old who did not go down the traditional path in life but believes there is still the possibility to find a man that has my same values. Those values are to treat others as you want to be treated. If you want another person to be considerate of your feelings consistently and in their every action, then you should do the same. Hopefully this comes natrually to you as it does for me. I am a great mother who thinks it's a shame that I may only have 1 child, but who will focus on the postive aspects of that if that is what is meant to be. On that note, I am an optimist who believes that if you work hard and treat people well, everything will work out OK, even if you only achieve happiness, which really is the most important thing, right? So please do not be someone who chases fleeting superficial goals, thinking the the ego-trip to "success" is the key to a happy life.
I am a very athletic, health minded person, though I am not obsessive as I do enjoy "bad" food sometimes and love my wine. I intend to look and feel good for my age for the rest of my life. I would like to find someone who would be compatible with me in that respect. Trust me, I can enjoy with you each and every "male" interest, except maybe those obsessive sports watching some of you guys have ! I like the ones that get you off the couch. Currently I'm playing softball in the fall, spring and summer, and aside from that I do some group personal training classes and kickboxing.
I am also very financially set, I care for my daughter and home on my own and always have without anyone handing anything to me. I am very responsible and on top of my finances. I have a great career but I do always find it is a constant struggle to get it to a point where I have both good hours and a good environment. I am looking for a guy who is successful in this respect as well, since I believe this is who'd be compatible with me. I like my job most of the time and if I have to I can continue down my career path, however, I see that the grass may be greener on the other side and MAYBE would not mind giving up the career if I could or if the man I was with preferred it that way. I can see the pros and cons of both sides of this way of life.
I enjoy interacting with someone that has a smart sense of humor, who can engage in an ongoing banter that is half serious and can even take it to a ridiculous level. This keeps a relationship exciting. Can you think on your feet? If those at work could see the way I behave at home, they'd be shocked (maybe everyone can say the same thing?).
Also be warned, I am a straight shooter (everyone tells me so and I never was able to define it before). However, unlike some opinionated people, I am mindful of people's feelings if their intentions are good, and I certainly don't care to make an issue of things that have no direct importance on mine and my daughter's life. To each his own.
Anyway, the bottom line is that I believe I have a lot to offer to someone, and I have not and will not settle for less than the same quality. To me it is better to be alone and find happiness that way than to be with someone just for the sake of it, or due to a fear of being alone. It has eluded me to find someone that brings a lot to the table, brings no baggage or drama, and in addition to having that chemisty and attraction between us. Is it impossible to find for me? Perhaps, but I still have hope. Can you be the one?
