I am... A divorced, suburban mom. A reader and thinker with a dark side. Well educated and well read. Politically liberal, personally traditional. INFJ. A dog lover. Somewhat of a homebody. Devoted first to my kids. Amicable with the ex and share custody. Not a big drinker or party person. Affectionate, physical, a communicator. A beach girl. A words person. A believer that helping others is the essence of life. Interested in psychology and what makes people tick. Not very materialistic. I work out regularly and enjoy it, but it's not my life.
You are...probably a father (I tend to have more to talk about with fellow parents, although not having kids is not a deal breaker). Well educated. Relatively fit but not obsessive about working out. Reflective and not arrogant. Witty and unself-conscious enough to be silly. Not under 30 and looking for Mrs. Robinson. Not easily intimidated by a woman who speaks her mind. Passionate about doing something that in some way brings good to others. Understanding of the juggling act that is parenting/working/dating (on a limited budget). A grown-up who does not play games. Ultimately looking for a long term relationship but patient with this process.
In my view, the most important factor in making a relationship successful is shared laughter, and potential for this is nearly impossible to determine via OKC. Therefore, I prefer to meet and chat over a drink rather than endlessly scour online profiles.
