I enjoy the outdoors, love music (live or otherwise), and cherish time spent with good friends/family. Our pop-up is our favorite way to 'princess camp'. I love to laugh, enjoy the simple pleasures in life, and value family most of all! I've never felt like there's going to be one big payoff that will make all the difference in life; all the little moments are my payday! I'm down to earth and not afraid to be without makeup. I enjoy going out on the town from time to time... love to feel sassy! It's good for a girl (; I'd like to think I find a good balance and create a warm, soft place to land.
I'd like to meet a charming, down to earth man with a healthy dose of wit. I'd like that he values what I bring to the table. He's honest and comes with a generous amount of integrity. A sense of humor goes a LONG way in my book (: I think someone who can laugh at themselves is truly attractive. Most of all, he's comfortable in his own skin, confident in the man he is. Sexy is so much more than just the way he looks!
We try to spend lots of time in and around the water. I guess I've been drawn to it since I was a kid and spent hours on the lake in our boats/seadoos. Hanging out with my daughter is very important to me, so if she's into it, typically so am I (within reason, haha!). She and I are quite alike! (: If you have been unable to care for and become involved (when the time is right) in the life of "another man's child", please save me the effort I might put forth, because I will see it and it's not what I'm looking for. Just keepin' it real (; My daughter has rarely (twice) met someone I was dating. I don't believe in bringing just anyone into her life, so meeting her is only when I feel the relationship has real potential.
I'm fairly straightforward, confident in who I am and not looking for someone to "take care" of me, so to speak. That being said, I do believe in traditional male/female roles. I'm not a woman with a domineering personality, but I do have my own thoughts, opinions desires. Sharing them with you shouldn't be discouraged, judged, or controlled. You know the old saying, "the sexiest part of a man to a woman is his ears". :D Healthy communication is the cornerstone of any great relationship.
I'm pretty shy and traditional. I know, you might say, "you're on a dating sight - shy and traditional!?" Well, I mean, take a chance and send me a message - I might be wondering when you will. Taking a chance is risky business, haha! (; I have to be straightforward about a few things... if you are into Harleys and all, I'm very sorry, but it's just NOT my thing. Also, I'm not the type to sit around and message forever, but for my own safety, please know that I will want to start with emailing. I have to genuinely know we have a connection and I have to feel SAFE. If you find you can't hang with the process, it's okay, but please understand when I back off. I also feel that photos are truly non-negotiable. If there's no photo, it's unlikely I'll respond. On that note, I try not to "exclude" anyone per se, but if you have a photo of you in front of a mirror half naked, my first impression is going to be that we probably won't be a good fit. It's really great that you're fit, but those pics aren't my thing.
I hope I've given you a sense of who I am and the qualities I hope to find in someone. I'm an eternal optimist with a healthy dose of realism. Take a chance? (; Here's a little quote I think is cool (from a TV show I haven't even seen, lol!): "I don't think it matters if there is a God or not. I've met people who believe in God that are good and that are bad. And, I've met people who don't believe in God that are good and that are bad. So, just be good. I'm good. Not 'cos I think I'll go to heaven, but because when I do something bad, I feel bad. And when I do something good, I feel good." Please don't take this to mean I don't believe in God - I very much do. Point is, I do good because it feels good.
