I’m making great strides in improving my health – 10 weeks now of no gluten, no sugar, no artificial sweeteners. It’s actually been a lot easier than I thought it would be. I’ve also gotten into a serious exercise program – who knew sorting out my foot issues would be the key! I’m very excited to have found shoes that let me exercise as much as I want. As I work on better health and a slimmer body, I’m still struggling with the chicken and egg issue about weight. I don’t love fat bodies, therefore I don’t believe anyone would like mine (self sabotage, anyone?), but I also believe I should be able to love myself as I am and that having that kind of self love would allow others room to love me. I’m working on embracing the paradox and also loving myself and my body enough to treat it well. And maybe that’s the key. I’m constantly challenging myself to expand the boundaries of my comfort zone. Sometimes I sail over the top, and sometimes I crash into the electrified fence.

I'm new to online dating and am not really sure if it's for me. Is it possible to meet "the one" this way? I have a teenager and a busy job, but I need some fun in my life. I'm looking for someone with a good sense of humor who enjoys trying new things, is kind and compassionate, and knows the power of introspection. A deep thinker who also knows how to have a good time!
I'm truly looking for my romantic best friend, my partner in crime. Someone who is emotionally healthy and mature, open to new things, always growing. Kindness is a must. I need someone who enjoys the arts, music, film, food, as well as a stable and healthy home life. I like a balance of going out and staying home. Creative tendencies are a huge plus, even if it's just appreciation of creativity. I have a good stable job, but I love to write and am working hard on the second draft of a screenplay. I have an RTF degree from UT and worked on movies for about 8 years until I became a parent. I love live music and enjoy going to concerts and comedy shows.
I have not dated in a long time. I've been raising my teenage daughter by myself for her whole life, and at first handling being a working single parent took all my energy (and then some). In the past few years I've realized I need to reclaim myself again. One reality I had to face was that I'd put on too much weight. I've lost 50 lbs in the past two years by vastly improving my eating habits, and more recently I have finally started working out again. I am very determined and when I set my mind to something, I stick to it. I was not overweight earlier in life, and I want to get back to a weight I am comfortable with. I understand a lot of guys prefer the skinny girls, as I used to be a skinny girl and I sure got a lot of attention. So I am looking for that rare man out there that is not put off by my work in progress body!
