I value honesty even when it hurts, humor in almost everything, intelligence, rationality, and empathy. I love my family, and I'm very close to my son. My friendships are important to me, and I have a wonderful circle of friends. However, I'm missing that 'best friend' aspect that is only filled with the right mate. I am not interested in settling--ever. I've already been married and had a child who is almost full grown now. I've raised him as a single mom with sole custody since he was 3. But I'm almost ready to start living for myself again.
So what would I tell the right guy...? I guess you should know my mind jumps from topic to topic, delving in deeply but ready to run off on a tangent as a thought captures me. If you know the MBTI, I fall into the NT group, mostly as an INTJ/INTP. I know it's not considered reliable in the research world, but I still find the categories useful.
I'm lonely sometimes, but not nearly as much as when with the wrong person. I am waiting for the guy who makes me laugh, surprises me with his thoughts, who will keep up with me mentally and push my boundaries at times--someone who is strong and insightful and who really sees me.
