I am first a parent of an amazing son that I have a great relationship with. I also have a career I'm dedicated to and I love my job. I try to have a true life/work balance but it takes work. I am faithful and while I make mistakes (and plenty of them), my faith is unbreakable. I am driven, independent and have a strong, fun personality. I am a smaller woman (5'4" and less than 120) and can handle myself most of the time, yet I am looking to find a relationship with someone who has similar interests, will be my best friend, protector and pillar of strength during the 5% of the time I need to be taken care of. Rest assured, when I find that person, he will also be an integral part of my life and I will be his best friend and pillar of strength. A true relationship is one where both individuals give 100%, not 50%.
I do work hard but love to have fun. My definition of fun comes in many ways. I enjoy going out to listen to music (live or DJ), dancing, water activities in the summer, trying new adventures, working out, reading a good book and watching a movie once in awhile. I rarely sit still and lead an active lifestyle. I run, strength train and enjoy other fitness activities. I care deeply about others and try to help those in need, though I know I could improve in this area. I am outgoing, somewhat of a social butterfly and plan to live the rest of my life being "me". I am tolerant, reasonable and understanding. Most of all, I am honest so I'll move on to what I am and am not looking for.
I am interested in meeting someone close to my age (4 or 5 years on either side), that is genuine, energetic, mature, can have an intelligent conversation, wants to lead an active life and is also looking to find a special person they can and will share many things with. I am NOT looking for a revolving door or to be with someone that wants to get to know me just for intimate reasons; that is not who I am. I am seeking a relationship, something that comes through similar interests and time together. If I do find my true match, I will give my heart and soul away. For him, I want to be the last thing he thinks of at night and the first thing he thinks of each morning.
Initial attraction is what begins a conversation, while chemistry runs much deeper. I will not reach out to you unless you have a picture because the initial attraction has to exist. If there is true chemistry, that will come through conversation. If you are truly interested, you can catch my attention with a well written email. An email with a simple "hi" will likely not result in a response (again, just being honest). Although it is easy to hide behind email, you can learn a lot about a person by the way they communicate. Please don't send me an email if you are not interested or don't want to communicate. I don't care for mixed messages or playing games with people. If I send you an email and you aren't interested, just say so. I am a "big girl" and can deal with it :)
FUN..okay, that's one extra but not at the bottom of the list of priorities
