After recently getting to know my brother and his fiance better, I'd like a relationship like they have. On the surface, they have a lot of differences, but it helps them to learn, grow and become better people. When you dig a little deeper, they have the same core - they are both considerate, affectionate, candid, honest, secure and thoughtful.
I like just about any kind of music or movies. I'll try anything once (as you can see I went skydiving recently - what an experience I got to share with my oldest). My youngest daughter and I have started baking the recipes she's been learning in school - the banana chocolate chip muffins are my favorite so far. I've moved into an engineering management role recently, because at this point in my career I would like to have an impact on people's careers. I volunteer once a week to help folks with GED math. I've traveled all over the world and would like to do more for fun, not just for my job.
I'd like to meet someone who I have a lot in common with, can be best friends with and develop a relationship that is based on respect, open communication and friendship and can make me say "where have you been all my life?" Until then, I'm enjoying meeting some nice folks. This dating thing is so much easier than when we were in high school - no need for games!
I have 3 kids, one who has graduated from college, one in high school and one in middle school. The two younger kids are with me 50% of the time. My oldest comes over about 25% of the time.
Thanks for reading!
By the way, if anyone is willing to share advice on this whole "co-parenting" thing based on your experience, I'd appreciate it!
