My life right now is pretty complicated. For financial reasons and ease of co-parenting, my son's father and I co-house despite being broken up for nearly two years. It's far from ideal, but since our break up is mutual and we can live amicably, for the time being it works. And hey, it's free babysitting!
The demands of raising my son don't leave me with endless amounts of time or energy to meet new people and date, but I've been feeling increasingly lonelier and am ready to start exploring who's out there. My sexuality has been evolving/fluctuating for some time and while I have more experience with men, I do have some with women and that is definitely the direction I am going right now. With that being said, I am primarily looking to date women, or those who identify as a woman. I am open to casual dating with the possibility of a longer term relationship if the energy and chemistry are right. I'm not looking for casual hook-ups, though there's a gaping lack of intimacy in my life right now so if I met the right person, I would be very open to sharing some physical intimacy.
Just to clarify in my details where it says I have a child and don't want anymore...it means I don't want any more of my own. I am perfectly comfortable dating somebody else who already has children. In fact, it might even be preferable. Also, while I live in Chicopee, I spend most of my social time in Northampton. Most of my friends live there and hopefully within the next year or two I will be able to move there. Chicopee is just not for me.
