Im a mess. :) A whole bunch of contradictions rolled into one. My two favorite activities are sitting quietly and reading while listening to classical music, and dressing up in costumes and running around the woods hitting people with foam weapons. I love the outdoors, as long as there is a hotel to sleep in. Im a dreamer, I cook (well, mind you) and am crazy about how my clothes are folded.
I'm looking for a true partner. Someone that compliments me, can motivate and push me, and who loves to cuddle. I need a man who is stable enough to care for me, but who will let me take care of him, too. I don't need, or want, someone with whom I have everything in common, but I would like someone with an open mind, who is as interested in learning about the things I love as I am in learning about his.
I have a daughter, she is 5, and I loved her, however, I gave her up for adoption when she was born. I onew it was the right thing to do for her...it was not a good situation for me, and I could not have cared for her at the time. Her parents, however, have let my family be a part of her life. Any partner I have will need to understand this, amd be willing to know her. She doesnt live close, and I usually see her about once every 3 months. She is kind-of fantastic, tho. I also dont mind a partner that has kids, but I have no interest in being a mother.
I have been hurt deeply, and am still healing, so I need things to progress very slowly. But I want to go out and have fun. I'll go for a drink, but am not interested in the club or bar scene. I've been there, done that. I love adventures, and things that make me laugh.
I just moved back to the area, and do not know too many people, so I am looking for new friends. Friendship, to me, is a key part of any lasting relationship.
Im also re-vamping my life. I have just lost 47 pounds, and am half way to my goal. I have discoveted I don't hate exercise as much as I thought. Im interested in trying new things, going new places, and eating new foods. Just no eggs. Lol.
