Hi all :) I'll try not to be long winded here but for those of you who actually read profiles, here ya go ;) I'm not the type of person to fall in love easily but I have a big heart and care deeply about my friends and family. I value positive attitudes and people who work to be a part of the solution versus someone who likes to complain about problems with no intention of trying to better the situation. I've been in serious long term relationships but for one reason or another they ran their course. I'm 38 and have never been married... I've come close but I'd rather be happy and single than with the wrong person. I'm blessed to love what I do for a living and couldn't be happier about the company I work for. I pay the mortgage on my own home, drive a Jeep that is paid off (awesome!!!) and know my own mind (don't worry though, I love listening to other points of view and am happy to concede if you have the more convincing argument). To most people I believe I come across as a strong, independent female but those closest to me know I have a very traditional side. I can and have laid hardwood floors and hung dry wall but I can also bake cupcakes like it's nobody's business. I love to get dressed up be treated like a lady but will have a blast jumping fire and crawling through mud (pick any local mud run). While I believe I've accomplished a lot and have experienced some pretty cool things, there's so much more that I'd like to do and see and I'd like someone to share that with. I'm ready to have a family and be a part of something bigger than just me. I'm very sure about my desire to have children and hope we can respect each other's time if this is not what you want. As you probably noticed from my pictures, I keep very active but that's only one side. I do my best to be healthy in both mind and body. We all have room to do better, be better and learn more.
Who I'm looking for: I'm keeping an open mind in regards to the details (I don't care what hair or eye color you have) but the fundamentals need to be there. No one wants to date a dishonest person with a poor moral compass... and I'm no exception. I expect you to say what you mean and mean what you say. Love is a big word and it should not be used lightly. Self confidence, a kind heart, a strong sense of honor, a mind for fairness and a healthy respect for opposing opinions are all character traits I value in my significant other. If you love to stay active and don't view people who run for hours as "crazy" then we'll probably get along :) Someone self aware, who knows what he wants and does a good job of communicating that would be just lovely also.
