Please read my profile and don't just look at my pictures. There's a lot more to me than what you see :) I'm a real lady looking for a special connection with an attractive, physically fit, intelligent man. A genuine person who believes in honesty and commitment; a compassionate person. I'm looking for a true match based on who I am at this point in my life. Not a trophy wife. I look and feel much younger than my age. However, I have a very young child who comes first, and that is unusual at my age and not what some are seeking. Someone my child will look up to and respect with my same values is of utmost importance. I'm fun loving, intelligent, in great physical shape, sexy, and easy to talk to; I'm quite the conversationalist. Being on the same intellectual level is important. I'm a true romantic and a little on the sensitive side. I can be silly :) I'm divorced and blessed with a beautiful child who means everything to me. I am a partner person and enjoy being in a committed relationship. I'm a professional with a satisfying career and have a supportive family and awesome friends. I'd love to spend time with my significant other enjoying all this life has to offer and creating special memories and family traditions together. I love holidays and tend to go all out creating a festive home....carving pumkins, the leaves in the fall, traveling to see Christmas lights.... if you don't like hanging Christmas lights you might want to hide from me! LOL! At times I do act more like a kid :) I entertain great friends several times a year in my home. I enjoy college football, gardening, cooking, traveling, trips to the mountains, romantic/fun dinners at home and out at "our" special place, grilling out on the patio, live music, picnics, biking, going to the gym, renting movies at home with a glass of wine and a cozy fire, or just sitting and talking. My young child is a priority so I do LOTS of family activities. Picnics in the park, Monkey Joes, Johnny G's, the Aquarium, the bookstore....you name it we are there! If this kind of thing doesn't appeal to you then you won't be happy hanging out with me! (hint, hint). I love children so if that special someone has kids of their own its all good! I am a loyal person who takes a while to get to know but then forms lifelong friendships. I'm financially responsible and must have the same in a partner. I'm on the conservative side politically and having a Christian partner is important to me but I am very open minded and tolerant of others. I don't like intolerance. I respect people, even if they aren't "my match". Deal breakers are men who anger easily aren't patient. I'm not interested in talking to anyone who is impatient, will get offended if you don't match my values, wants me to jump right into dating, or wants me to bring my child into the picture too quickly. I don't have a lot of time for dating and I move very slowly. I have everything in my life except that one special man to share a family with....... a family oriented man who loves children and puts God and family first. I'm not in any hurry and not willing to try to "make" something work if it's just not right. When we meet and we are crazy about each other, we will both know it! If not then we made a new friend! If you can make me melt with your kiss, are a caring and compassionate man, and most importantly- make me laugh, we may have a connection. Please have a real photo without sunglasses and hats, lol....wink ;) Good luck on our adventure!
