I am an active and busy high school biology teacher, and I'm the luckiest mom in the world! I have three beautiful children (two daughters who are 9 and 5, and a son who is 4). I am spontaneous and open to trying new things, however, with three young children, being spontaneous often takes on a slightly different meaning... I'm also extremely organized and probably more comfortable when I have a plan... is that a strength or something to work on?! :-)
I love to travel. Some of my greatest experiences include my research in South Africa and exploring Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, and Italy. I hope to someday visit Alaska, Costa Rica, Morocco, and Dubai... perhaps you'd like to join me!
I enjoy a very active lifestyle... running, hiking, biking, swimming, golfing, snowshoeing, etc. I also like to cook and entertain... formal dinners and holiday gatherings as well as more casual events like drinks and appetizers or back yard barbeques. I try to eat as healthy as possible as often as possible, although I love to try new foods and new restaurants, and I always have dessert- in fact, I try to laugh and eat chocolate every single day!
I am looking for an active, energetic, and positive man who is honest and sincere. I respect people who are driven to be successful both professionally and personally. I hope to find someone who already enjoys some of the same things as me, but who is also eager and willing to try new things, and teach me a few things along the way, too! I want to be with someone who thinks, "Wow - I can't believe I get to be with her!" (and someone who makes me think, "Wow - I can't believe I get to be with him!")
Most people say I smile and laugh easily... and often... One of the things I always try to do is to make sure people feel good about themselves when they are with me. I think people are drawn to those who are positive and affirming, and I want to be that kind of person!
Basically, I'm just a normal girl looking for a normal guy. I am generous and kind, and although I may not be quick to commit, when I do I am fiercely loyal. I am not in a huge rush, but when I find the right person, I would love to spend the rest of my life with him- and you don't have to be perfect (and please don't expect me to be perfect either because I'm definitely not)!
I have a friendly and cooperative relationship with my former husband. He takes full financial responsibility for his children without question or hesitation. We communicate almost daily and attend their lessons, practices, games, school functions and events, etc. together, so I am not looking for a dad or a benefactor for my children. I will add, however, that if you cannot see yourself eventually being part of a family with children, I am not the woman for you. I am very open to being with someone who has children, but I do not anticipate introducing anyone to my children until the relationship is very well established. I am also very traditional (old-fashioned?) and I am not looking for casual hook-ups or anything like that.
I believe happiness is a choice you make every single day! I have a great life, and I am looking for someone to share it with. I'm relatively new to internet dating (and it's just about the last thing I ever thought I would be doing in my life), and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I mean, we can all say whatever we want online, but when it comes to people and relationships, I feel like you really have to just hang out with people... look them in the eye, and get a sense for who they are and what they're all about... so, even though I am not sure about all of this, I am encouraged by the thought that I only have to be right once! :-)
so, if any of this sounds interesting to you, I'd love to hear from you, and either way, I wish you the best of luck with your search!
