I am very much the down to earth, girl next door type……a little shy
at first, but very passionate, committed and devoted to the people
and things that I love. In all of my relationships I am open,
honest, affectionate and loving….. I hope to meet someone who
possesses these traits. I like men who are thinkers and doers, who
use their intellect and can impress me with their minds as well
their humor and charm…..to me that is very attractive.
For me, besides being happy and content with myself, my life and
being a great mom, the most important thing in life is to be in a
committed, mutually satisfying loving relationship, with someone
who shares some of my passions and interests. I like the idea of
sharing whatever we can together. Still, I am independent and have
my own life. Part of my lifestyle comes from eating healthy and
working out. I am not a health fanatic … I just like being in good
shape and exercise makes me feel good.
I am a total romantic! I am into flowers, love notes & kisses,
hugs and affection….little romantic things and I love to give it
all back. The phrase “It’s the little things” kind of describes my
outlook in life. I like to shower my man with love and praise, to
hear his thoughts and hopes and dreams and whatever he wants to
share……even if it’s something that you don’t think I want to hear,
I want to hear it!
What I’m doing with my life
I try to make a positive difference in my corner of the world
through my job & my role as a parent. I enjoy my work....I am a
devoted parent......My family and friends are important to me and I
love my weekends!
I’m really good at
Making people feel good inside, considering all points of view,
figuring out what makes people "tick", making order out of chaos,
making chaos out of order, identifying wild flowers & quite a
few trees, interpreting what I read, making kids laugh and feel
comfortable, making grouchy people feel better, getting immersed in
something I like to do, making lemonade out of lemons (lots of
sugar)......making icecream with rock salt & milk, imagining
just about anything in 3D color, getting lost in my thoughts, going
off on tangents....

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about books how to improve things in my world, how to
accomplish things in an effective manner, my kids, books or
articles I have read, the questions or problems or issues presented
in the content. I think about what I need to do at work and what I
need to do at home and what I want to do on the weekend and where I
want to travel.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am sooooo not going to talk about that here! But my feeling is
that private things are for private relationships, that's part of
what makes it special when you find someone you connect with,
