After all life's lessons, I have learned nothing and more than I ever wanted to know. But a few things I look for in a man . . . Not prone to anger. Sympathetic and giving. Highly intelligent with a proficiency in grammar. (I was an English major back in the day) Hardworking to a fault, yet family oriented. My girls have never had a father, and don't expect one . . .but it would be nice for them to have a mentor. Extremely sensitive to the whole of nature while taking life's battles with a grain of salt. Dark hair, blue eyes has always been my favorite. ;) I'm flexible, but I'm not about to uproot life for someone I'm not attracted to in every way.
As to what I am not looking for: someone to split bills with or a houseman. Please, if you are married or separated, do not message me. Been there, been burned. Cowboys, chest bumping testosterone filled boys - not really gonna have a great chance. Lifetime students or "in the restaurant business" - I'm past that stage and I require job security comparable to my own. I tend to prefer older men, but I'm not ready for 50's bracket, sorry.
As for me, well . . .I've been the good Christian and the black sheep. I've been a musician and an excellent dart player, dabbled in Feng Shui, listened to angry girl music and Country music, played Mozart and written poetry. I'm outspoken, yet quiet: empathetic with a sense of something akin to Entitlement - I am always giving too much of myself, and I desire someone who will finally meet me halfway.
I am passionate about everything, good or bad. More than most, I feel the way everything in life goes hand in hand, and the motion of the journey leaves me in awe.
I am waiting for that moment when a 10 word message leads to a conversation that never ends . . .when every word is a morsel to be devoured, and every thought makes my heart pump. When I am enveloped as a completely human being - nothing less, and nothing more. Loved, yes . . .but also kept.
