I am an energetic 40-year-old teacher. I am almost always in a good mood,and I love to laugh. I enjoy meeting new people, but won't keep a person around just to feel wanted. In other words, I am not a game player. I am very secure with myself and am fine being alone. BUT, I would love to meet someone special. I don't mean to sound rude, but I'm not interested in meeting someone who is only visiting Vegas. I'm not that kind of girl :) I am looking for someone who is honest, funny and loyal. He must also be family and friend orientated. I prefer guys who are laid back, and don't get angry very often. I tend to let things roll off my back and appreciate someone who does the same thing. This doesn't mean that he shouldn't stand up for what he believes in (he should also respect someone who has a difference of opinion- we're all cut from a different cloth and that's what makes the world interesting). I also appreciate a great sense of humor!!! I'm a big smart alec and find it hard to enjoy very serious people.I know when to be serious and can discuss real world issues when desired, but life is too stressful to be serious all the time. I'm a communicator and feel that clear and honest communication is the key to a successful relationship. I don't understand secretive and reserved people and honestly they creep me out a little:) I have nothing to hide and can't relate to people that do. Be proud of who you are and embrace it. Everything happens for a reason and the undesirable events in your life have shaped and molded you into the person you are today.
A lot of people ask me why I'm still single at 40?? Because, I'm willing to wait for the right one. I'm not unrealistic, I just believe in "The One." I was raised by an amazing family who showed me how to treat people and how to be treated. I don't expect anything out of a relationship that I'm not willing to give in return. Morals, ethics and respect mean a lot!!!! My dad was a Marine and I hold many of these values in my heart to this day. When I was younger I thought that my perfect man would share all of the same ideals and values that I held in my heart. I now realize that I have no idea who my perfect man will be, and that is the excitement and joy that I look forward to discovering. I believe God will let me know when I have found him and we will support and change each other for the better.I'm not looking for someone to agree with everything I have to say, but isn't going to judge me for it either. Maybe he will be the one to open my mind to other opinions and vice versa. I'm not always right and neither is he.
Ultimately, I'm looking to find someone that I can build a solid, loving and respectful relationships with. Eventually marry and have a couple of kids with. I know this sounds a little presumptuous, but that is my ultimate goal.I've waited this long and refuse to create something from nothing- but I'm hopeful. Chemistry is the biggest thing between two people! It's either there, or it's not! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and good luck in your search!!
