I'm going to try to keep this simple. Non negotiables: I am looking for a relationship. If we meet and you are "not sure" or "not interested", please just let me know that. I want kids. I will not date a smoker (or at least someone who isn't trying to quit. I'm very sensitive to the smoke and it tends to make me ill when I'm around it for more than a few minutes).
That's my very short list of must haves, now a bit about me:
I can be a contradiction walking. I love the stage, but hate being the center of attention. I love to travel and see new places, but enjoy a quiet night in more often than not. Little shocks me, but I'm amazed by the simple things in life like a cotton field in October or sunlight streaming through the trees. Shiny objects distract me, but they don't impress me.
I'm willing to try just about anything. I talk when I'm nervous, but tend to be slow to reveal too much until I get to know someone a little better. Humor is something I try to find in any situation. Being active is essential for both my own well being and sense of self, so I would hope for a partner interested in being active with me.
I classify myself as a "social drinker", but I'm not one that drinks in most social situations. I might have a couple drinks every few months, but it actually shocks my friends when I order something other than a water!
I am new-ish to Savannah, having lived here for under a year. I moved because my life wasn't moving forward. I needed some new scenery, so I chucked a perfectly good full time management position with benefits and a retirement plan to take a chance on a new adventure. I had visited Savannah, and thought this would be as good (and beautiful!) a place as any to take a chance on. It was scary at first - I found a job that paid the bills, but didn't excite me. Luckily, that's changed, and I was able to find a job that not only paid the bills, but gets me revved to go to every day. I can say at the end of a typical day that I accomplished something meaningful.
Now, I'm looking to round out my life. Find that someone that shares some of the same interests and is also looking at moving forward, taking that next step, and starting a family. I'm don't want to rush anything though. Call me a little old fashioned, but I'd like to actually date for awhile. Get to know one another. Build that solid relationship that makes making a lifelong commitment seem like the next logical step and not some life altering decision.
I'm here because I'm not into the bar scene. I've also found that as I've gotten older, it's harder to weed out the "singles" from the "marrieds". I've tried other sites, but they have been less than fruitful with truthful prospects looking for true relationships, so I figured if we're paying to meet others, that's a good sign we might be reading from the same book.
