I have a goofy side and have a sarcastic sense of humor. I can also be a bit "Type A" which means I'm responsible but fun. I'm very close to my family. I love to run and try to get out 4-5x's a week. I'd like to find someone to share that with. I grew up as a military brat, so have lived all over the world. I've always loved to travel and try to take trips as often as possible. I make time with my friends/sisters/family a priority and enjoy having girls nights out. I think it's important for couples to have interests outside of their relationship and to enjoy time away from each other occassionally. But on the other hand, a relationship should always come first and will be my #1 priority!! I'm very responsible financially and would like to find someone who is too! When it comes to spending my money, I prefer to spend it DOING things rather than material things. I like going out for nice dinners, taking overnight trips and vacations. I don't need designer clothes, fancy cars or the biggest house. I'm very low maintenance- don't spend a lot of money on clothes, hair, nails, etc, but consider myself stylish and attractive. I enjoy getting dressed up and having a fun night out on the town, but also want a guy I can be comfortable with lounging around in my pj's all day w/ no make-up on.
I'm looking for someone who is fun, confident, will take charge (but also be able to bend), A good sense of humor is very important!! He should NOT be jealous or controlling. I want someone who is happy in his own life, knows what he wants and doesn't need another person to build him up to have self worth. He should be kind, considerate, willing to help others (help that person struggling w/ a suitcase open the door, or the lady w/ the stroller, etc). I'm pretty independant and don't expect to be treated like a china doll. I don't necessarily need doors opened for me, but I do appreciate a guy who treats me well and makes me a priority (walk me to my car, call to make sure I got home, etc). I like to enjoy a glass of wine/beer/cocktail (or more) w/ dinner, but I'm definitely not interested in someone who drinks too much!!
I do have two kids, so that's part of the package. They are both great boys who are a lot of fun and very sweet. They are in pre-school and 3rd grade. I'm not really interested in having more kids of my own, but would be open to meeting someone with his own children from a previous relationship. Also, my ex and I make the kids our #1 priority and are still on very friendly terms. We will sometimes have dinner as a family and do things together for special occassions. Whoever I end up with needs to be able to accept that he is still a part of my life (though it's strictly for the sake of the kids!).
I'm excited to go on this adventure that is Match.com!! If I sound like someone you could have fun with, I'd love to hear from you!!
