First, let me say - I love men...I am not a man-hater...I hope that one day I will find "my guy" and live happily ever after. So, I hope that this doesn't come off as hateful as I'm worried it is going to sound...but here it goes.
1) I have grown children who live in a different state. I was a single mother for many years and I know how hard it is to be a parent and my children where absolutely my first thought in everything I did. BUT, now they are grown and I am finally "free" to be Sheila...and not just mom. I enjoy doing the things I want and when I want. And, as much as I totally appreciate and respect men who are still in the trenches raising their children I am past that stage and would not be a good match with someone who still had young children that they were taking care of...sorry.
2) If you are between the ages of 18-35 (?) YOU ARE TOO YOUNG FOR ME!! I appreciate all of the nice compliments and they make this "mature" woman feel very flattered. However, age is not just a number...it is a accumulation of experiences, ups, downs, good, bad...and a lot of lessons. It is ridiculous to think that we would have anything in common. I am sure that you are "talented" in many ways...but no, no, no...I'm not interested...LOL.
3) I am interested in a man who is a GENTLEMAN! I like to be treated like a lady (doors opened for me, flowers once in a while, told that I'm amazing...lol And I would treat you like the gentleman you are...would love to have someone to spoil and cherish). But, the other thing I like is to laugh. Oh my gosh...I love to laugh! A man who can make me laugh can win my heart.
4) Ok, this - for some reason - ticks a lot of men off and I really don't understand why, but I will not, don't want, "ain't gonna", have sex with you unless we end up in a serious relationship. Yes, I put restrictions on sex, but it's ok because I'm a free, over 21 year old, independent woman and I do get to say when, where and who I have sex with...LOL I am not a car, there are no "test drives". I don't need to have sex with you to decide if we are compatible. I will know that by your actions and your character.
So, now that I have written a book - let me wrap it up by saying...I love men, I think for the most part they are wonderful...I just want to find someone that : is past the full-time parenting time of life, is a gentleman who knows how to treat a lady, likes to be spoiled by the woman who loves him, can make me laugh, isn't trying to jump into a physical relationship before he even knows if he likes a woman.
Maybe I am asking for too much. If so, I guess I'm just going to have to be a crazy cat lady..lol. (Well, I have a dog...but I've never heard anyone say they are going to grow old and be the crazy dog lady).
If you have read this far, and are still interested and think you might be a good match for me I would be delighted to get to know you.
Best of luck in your search :)
I know...it's gross, it's just one of my guilty pleasures...don't tell anyone!!
DON'T message me if all you are interested in is talking dirty on the phone or internet, are a scammer looking for someone to loan him cash, or you don't like intelligent, funny, honest women. :D
