I have been on and off match for a while. I've met a lot of nice people, but never a connection. Thats what I'm looking for, a strong emotional, physical connection. It is hard to meet people working in a sea of women all day and thats why i've tried match. My friends would tell you that I'm funny, real, smart,fiesty,sarcastic and always doing the right thing (catholic guilt). I also think its hard to write about yourself so I'm just keeping it short. I live in the western suburbs with my two boys, 18 and 11.My 18 year old is down south studying and my 11 year old is the athlete of the family and is busy year round with travel baseball. I work as a stylist in a high end salon in the burbs. My hours allow me to be home more than most single parents. I am one of four kids and the product of good parenting. My brothers and sister live in the area so we are all very close. I am the fourth generation born in Wisconsin, so yes, I am a huge Packer fan. Sorry, its in the blood! My brothers both played college football so I know more about football than most men. I am a girlie girl, but can also bait my own hook. Growing up with 2 brothers, i can certainly hold my own. Looking for someone who will give me a challenge, who's confident, who loves dive bars, and of course whom i have great chemistry with. I have a very good relationship with my ex which is vital to my kids. We share custody so I am not looking for a 'stepdad'. I am very independent and have a full life, and would love to share it with someone. I dont really have a 'type'. But i do know if youre a 10 in looks and are mean or think youre above the wait staff, that brings you right down to a 2. Looks only get you so far.
