I often tell people that my Mr. Right is out there but he's lost and refuses to stop and ask for directions! A comment I recently got in response to that was that while Mr. Right was out there driving around, I had probably turned the lights off in the store where he needs to get directions. I work for the government/military and have done so for the last 15 years. I really enjoy my job and have loved the opportunities it has provided me. I'm currently working on my Doctoral dissertation and am hoping to be finished by the end of October. I'm looking for someone who can make me laugh and help me enjoy all the wonderful things in life. I have two large, very active dogs so he must like dogs and spending time outdoors. Would like someone who values spending time together but also understands the importance of individual time and space. I am in no urgent hurry to be in a permanent relationship so I'll enjoy taking time to get to know other people.
