Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am happy in my life, with a great family and wonderful friends,
but the constancy of a good partner is missing. I have spent the
last several years focusing on being the best parent I could be and
have been rewarded for those efforts with two amazing, competent,
and self-sufficient daughters. Finally, I am in a position to put
my needs into a higher priority.
My ideal match would be a good communicator. He would possess a
keen intelligence that allows us to engage in great conversation
and that would that would allow me to learn and expand my horizons
through his experiences.
He would be someone who understands the value of romance and
passion in a relationship. Open-mindedness and a lack of judgment
would guide him in romance and elsewhere. He would recognize that
keeping those components alive are key to keeping a happy and
He would also value and understand the concept of personal
responsibility, no victim mentalities please :) It is how I live my
life and I value the viewpoint in others.
I have been told that I have a good sense of humor. Maybe my
friends are being too kind, but I know that I love that in a
companion. I hope to laugh -- a lot -- with a partner. I think that
it is so important to keep a light hearted perspective on life,
especially in those areas that one has no control over.
I guess I would consider myself a moderate adventurer. Can't say
that I am ready to embark on a marathon on Antarctica, but I am
pretty likely to pick up and go on a spontaneous trip to a distant
locale if the opportunity arises. I went skydiving for the first
time a couple of months ago. If a potential partner chooses not to
share things like that with me, that is OK, but I hope he can
support me and share my joy in overcoming fears and stretching
For all my love of travel and new experiences, I can also veg out
at home with the best of them. I enjoy cooking and entertaining at
home, movies on the dvd player, and wine and conversation by the
fire. I also like to curl up on a rainy day and read or watch a
favorite TV show.
But, after we have checked off all the compatibilities, in the end,
it is still about that elusive thing called "connection." I would
love to hear from you if you think there might be more worth
pursuing here. Best of luck to you.
