Hello Seattle singles!
First and foremost, I want to be very forthcoming about where I'm at it life. I am a mother to the most beautiful six year old girl on this earth. No, I am not biased. Motherhood has shown me love I didn't know existed. I like to think I handled becoming a mother at a very young age with a fair amount grace, maturity, and determination. Since finishing college, I work very very hard at a job I love to support my daughter and live a life I enjoy. Though I'm only 24, I am at a much different place in life than most of my 24 year old friends. My Friday nights hardly consist of going out to the bars. I have reached a point where life is steady, and now I'm ready for a serious relationship, marriage, and more kids. So here I am on Match, because between work and family life I don't get out enough to meet new people.
For those of you who haven't hit the back arrow yet, here is a bit more about me. I'm a little shy, love to laugh, and try to surround myself with outgoing, spirited people to bring me out of my shell. When my kids are grown, I have a very strong desire to travel the world with my hubby. Ireland, Switzerland, UK, Australia, Scotland, South Africa, and Europe in general are at the top of my list. I am a self proclaimed foodie and food snob. Yes, I mainly shop at Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Central Market, PCC etc. Along with this comes my strong belief in the Paleo/Primal way of eating. I am very career driven and family driven, which I try to balance as best as I can. I have a strong belief and commitment to the ancient Orthodox faith, so finding a man with strong Christian values is very important. I am a very laid back person, except when it comes to my home. I'll admit I'm a little OCD, but I need and maintain a very neat, clean home. I am perfectly content with some good, light hearted, conservation during a walk in the evening, over a glass of wine and dessert, or while skimming the beach for seaglass. Netflix marathons on a Friday night with an ice cold beer after a long work week sounds about as good as it gets. Though I am simple, a little old fashioned, and moderately conservative, I do love my iPhone and all things Mac. I realize how blunt and almost unwelcoming this all sounds, but in reality I think my closest friends and family would describe me as extremely warm, sweet and without a mean bone in my body. I'm simply at a point in life where my expectations are outlooks are clear.
I am looking for someone to live a full, satisfying life with me. I want to meet a man who is big hearted, fun, sets goals, giving, funny, dependable, loving, and wants to cherish his family. Must must must be a hard worker. You can easily charm me with simple old fashioned gestures and a humble disposition.
Ultimately, I cannot wait to find someone to join me on this journey of life - filled with joy, hardships, love, sacrifice, and cherishing the many blessings. I have a lot of love to give.
