I am a divorced mom of the two cutest kids on the planet. I have a great career and a wonderful home and family. I'm very content with the life that I have but want to open the door to meeting someone. I have been divorced for a few years; it's time to put myself "out there" again.
I really can't meet men at work; I'm a teacher. If a single guy was just hanging out at school, it really would be creepy. I've gone on the radio to find a date (only to make a jackass out of myself), and I fall asleep before the cool people get to bars, so here I am... hopeful there are more geeks like me. I'm a bit of a ham and I love to laugh, especially at myself. My friends all describe me as loud, but with a heart of gold. I have a hard time talking about myself, so my friend made me write that. :)
By the age of 37 a girl has had plenty of time to figure out what she needs in a man. I've been around the block a few times which has resulted in many opportunities for self-reflection (what the heck happened with that?) and have had time to understand who I am compatible with. (My closest friends think they could all do a much better job of picking a date for me than I can do for myself!) I make silly awkward jokes when I am getting to know people, so please be patient with me.
I want someone in my life that will feel blessed to have my arms around him. I want someone in my life that treats waitresses with respect and won't make them go through the entire list of salad dressings when he really knows that he just wants Ranch. I want someone in my life that will make me laugh; like the belly aching laugh that we just can't get enough of! I want someone that occassionally holds the door open for me but will appreciate it when I hold the door for him! I want a man in my life that appreciates having his own space and gives a girl a little room to breathe. It's been tricky, but I'd really like to meet an honest to goodness "good guy" that plays like a kid, goes to work like a grown up, and makes out like a teenager.
I have kids and I think they are awesome. I am looking to find someone who understands my responsibilities as a parent and knows that they come first. Having said that, I am hoping for someone who can be silly with me, laugh out loud, and still know how to be respectful around the two fantastic little people in my life. I am not looking for someone to step in to be a father to them next week, but I would like to meet someone who would be a positive person in my life and maybe eventually in theirs.
Because I'm a bit of a chicken, you will have to send me the first message!
