My self-summary
Well, I am generally lower maintenance (emotionally) and am quick to make fun of a bad situation and find a solution to it. I am energetic, clever, imaginative, witty, independent, adventurous, persuasive, enthusiastic, good at communication, loyal and generous. I adapt quickly to new situations- am fast on my feet, am adept at flirting and very hard to beat in an argument!
I will never turn away when I can help and am fiercely loyal. I never walk when I can run. I favor variety. Life is too short to miss anything!!
What I’m doing with my life
I am eight years post divorce and have a new job that I am enjoying. I have two beautiful, smart, funny boys (19 almost 20 yrs old and 12 yrs old) that I share joint custody of. I have a home- not just a place to light or to exist but an environment to really live and grow. Lanny, my three year old rescue boxer mix has been a welcome, albeit overdue addition to our lives. Now all I need is someone to share it all with. …….. Looking forward to what 2017 will bring
