Characteristics in people that are important to me are that they are confident, aim to be healthy and fit, can make me laugh, are intellectual, and are respectful of others, If you have children, it is a given to me that you value your role as their father, just as I value my role as a mother...it is unspoken, does not need explanation, it just is. Being a parent, you understand.
I am currently separated, not yet divorced, because my job as a government contractor does not provide benefits and my ex and I have reached amicable agreements, one of which is that he will carry me under his health insurance plan until I am able to obtain health insurance through my employer. I have gotten questions about my status as being separated so I feel it is worth explanation on here.
I have an alternating weekend schedule for my children with their father and some free times during the week. I feel as though I have a lot to offer someone who respects me, who connects with me on the same levels as I connect with them. I truly care about people, I see the good in people and I recognize and cherish those things about them.
