My self-summary
I'm a mom. I do mom stuff.

Having said that, I don't think that should be the only thing that defines me for the next 10 years. I'd like to be able to talk to someone else other than my second-grader! He's funny and witty and all, but still...! Not to mention, I'm free most every weekend :)

I have no problem getting to know people - I'm pretty forward and very direct actually. It just takes some time, and I don't have all the time in the world that I'd like to commit to getting to know new people (which is one of my favorite things to do....that and people watching. Interesting fact: I'm a pretty good lip reader. Combine that with people watching, and you have hours of entertainment!)

So here's a good summary: I'm funny, goofy, sassy, logical, sarcastic, respectful, handy (I call myself "Bobette Vila"), classy, intelligent, self-sufficient, sometimes spontaneous, respected and liked (but disliked too...I'm not afraid to admit it.) I LOVE being outdoors and active when it's warm outside. (Winter is honestly something I can't stand and try to avoid!) I'm also an old soul.

These are my "would-love's" for you: Outgoing, funny, sarcastic, gainfully employed....Just have a job and be able to take care of yourself, compassionate, considerate & generous (but not overly...I don't like doormats), forward, willing to defend yourself, willing to accept the fact that I can't always give all my time to you because I first have a duty as a mother. Finally, you've gotta have thick skin.

Please understand that if I visited you, I saw something that I liked, but I may not always reach out to you if I didn't get a lot from your profile. A lot of times guys don't even fill out their profiles, which completely baffles me! What the hell are we here for? Talk to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working in Operations and living the single-parent life. I like who I am. Just looking to hang out with someone who's like-minded and also comfortable with where they are.
I’m really good at
Cooking & baking; making people feel comfortable quickly; smartassery; gaining trust; giving you a laugh; kissing; being the one to take a social risk; developing a process; daydreaming; socializing; playing Euchre; learning new things; winning over kids. I'm also great with a paint brush, drill, miter saw/table saw/hand saw, etc. You want help constructing something, you let me know! I'm in!!
The first things people usually notice about me
At first glance? The curls and the glasses. They're unavoidable. I've also heard people say my mouth. To me it's just a mouth! People who observe for more than a moment have told me they notice how personable I am and that I smile a lot. I have a fire in my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Dan Brown's Inferno is my current read (Seriously I'm not gonna paint myself as some avid reader. Books gather dust at times.) I heart him...he's pretty stinkin good.

I'm also currently reading about how I can be a human lie detector. Be careful ;)

Movies: Gone in 60 Seconds, A-Team, Harry Potter (You can judge. Go ahead!) The Transporter, Transporter II (most all Jason Statham goodness), Transformers, Step Brothers, Bridesmaids. Sappy movies really aren't my thing. If you want me to commit to sitting that long, it needs to be action packed or really hilarious.

Music. Rock, Pop, R&B, Classical. Not really into Grunge.

Food? Well, I absolutely love to cook. And I try not to cook the same thing twice. I'm very open to trying anything once, but not *quite* to the extent of Andrew Zimmern - he's an animal!
The six things I could never do without
My son
My freedom
My car
Honestly speaking for utilitarian purposes - Money. I actually really can't stand money.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can make my current situation better. It's a fault, truly, and I'll openly admit it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the Friday. Girls' Night? (I'm over the clubbing, but enjoy drinks and conversation.) Movies at home. In the summer time I LOVE being at my best friend's rustic (extremely rustic) lake property in Jackson county.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm stubborn. As much as I say I can do everything on my own without the help of another, I do need people.
You should message me if
You're capable of introducing yourself and initiating coversation without a sexual proposition; you're not a jerk; you're really, truly single; you're honest; you don't mind a lady that's not overly girly but who can rock some heels and nail polish at the same time; you don't need to spend more time than me in the bathroom getting ready; you'll respect my role as being a parent first; you don't mind laughing and can make others laugh; you have a good, stable job ---> which really means you don't need financial assistance from me; you don't have any secrets that you're not willing to divulge; you care more about others more than yourself.

Yes, that's a lot...but I owe it to myself to be picky.
