My friends usually describe me as quiet until I get to know them. I'm very devoted to my children making their lives the best I can and providing them a positive and strong role model.
I have been described as not your typical girl. I don't own a ton of shoes or purses and I rarely wear jewerly unless the mood strikes me. I grew up in the country in a farming community so I'm not afraid of actual "work". I'd rather jump in and help then sit back and watch. I've taken my part in the past in home remodeling by helping with things from drywall to roofing. There is nothing more rewarding the taking pride in something you did. When it comes to games etc, i don't ever want to have a guy take it easy just because I'm a girl, challenge me. But just as a typical girl I do enjoy getting dressed up nice, going out, and being romanced.
I like to tell the story about being on vacation in TN with my boyfriend and another couple. We were hiking thru the hills of TN which required a bit of work using the trees and rocks to make your way up and down since the grade was so steep. I had no troubles making my way. Then I realized the other girl in our group had both guys tending to her needs, helping her climb. So did I loose out cause I wasn't the needy girl or was it better to be me?
I have a very satisfying and challenging career. It's a field that is primarily dominated by men, so I've had my challenges proving my capibilites to those I've encountered. As they would tell me, I'm not what they expected when being told an engineer would be out to work. I don't fit the stereotype. I used to do a lot of traveling, but I have taken a step back in a position that doesn't require travel giving me more time home for my kids.
However I miss having someone special in my life to share the events of everyday, whether it's just hanging out with a friend or having someone special.
Yet if you just want to hang out and have fun, nothing more that's great too.
