I love to spend time with my daughter(obviously), with my friends, my extended family, and enjoy conversations with people wherever I go. While I do tend to be chatty, I do love quiet and I am very open to taking long walks or hikes and not saying a word.
I have been single for about a year now. I am still not yet divorced, but it is clear to me there is no going back. I am the kind of person who intentionally goes slow. I find I make better choices this way. I didn't used to be this way, but I have learned from my mistakes.
Although I say this, if I feel safe and if and when it feels right, I tend to be very affectionate. Please feel free to ask me where I am at and my hope is you will be open to the same.
I have come a long way from my youth and feel proud of my ability to grow and change for the better and would seek this in anyone I date seriously. Personal growth is super attractive to me. On the other hand, I think I can laugh at my flaws and if I feel safe with you, you are welcome to laugh at them too.
I have come to enjoy intellectual and philosophical conversations. I want to spend time with people who can teach me and whom I can share my knowledge with. This does not mean I need to be with someone who is formally educated, but it is important that my fella has a passion for learning, enjoys sharing what they know and has an interest hearing my thoughts.
I prefer dating men who feel comfortable in social situations, who have a good sense of humor, who do not drink/do drugs or are very moderate, are nonsmokers (unless on fire... God forbid), are generous and considerate, who I can share good conversation with, cares about their own health, can support themselves, have their own interests and passions, who are affectionate, caring, has the ability to open their heart, introspective and while they are logical, they are open to or have a spiritual path.
I will offer the same to you.
While the person I date doesn't have to be super masculine, I have found it challenging to be with someone who is more feminine than I am. I like to be in my feminine.
Additionally, I am someone and I want to be with someone who fights fair, asks how your day is,, will understand that offspring come first (and yet feels secure enough to know I will make time for you), is doing something good for the world (whether as a vocation or avocation) is compassionate and sees that a relationship is its own entity. It's like a garden. It needs tending to or it dies.
I look forward to hearing from you.
