I'm just a girl looking to make new friends. I've been divorced for several years now and am in a really good place. I am a working professional and love to travel. As a mom of two wonderful boys, though, my "travel" time for now is limited to weekend trips, which I enjoy. I am a woman, a friend, a sister, daughter, and hard-working person with a good heart. I am outgoing, and get along with just about everyone. I don't judge, am accepting, and open-minded. I have it together. Oh, and I LOVE roller coasters and crazy rides, and motorcycles. Someday I'd love to actually ride one. I am also not a girly girl. Don't get me wrong, I am super feminine, but can strap on a tool belt and do a few things around the house, and probably change a flat (though I've never had to do that). I recently replaced my doorbell, whole kit and caboodle, including the transformer, and have been known to mow the lawn. I also love photography, and find myself behind the camera (as well as my camera phone) whenever possible.
I am looking to meet a like-minded, stable guy to hang out with, go to dinner, see a movie, and if he's into photography, go shooting and talk shop with. Someone with the travel bug and free time to go on weekend getaways too would be cool. And if he has a motorcycle, even better. He has to feel comfortable with an independent woman, but also know how to be a gentleman. Manners and respect are important to me. Chivalry earns lots of points in my book. If you think anger = justification for disrespect and name-calling, then we wouldn't be a match. A man who likes romance is a turn-on. Impromptu flowers, in person or sent to work, a card, a hidden note somewhere. I eat that stuff up.
While I am not necessarily seeking a soul mate at this time, I'm not opposed to it. For now, I'd like to find a steady companion and friend with similar interests with whom to spend time, go on dates, have conversations. If he ends up being "the one," I'm all for it. I don't want to rush anything, but don't want to really just date around for the sake of dating, if that makes sense.
And by the way, I'm still a bit of a traditional girl at heart, so I won't likely do much pursuing. I have no problem messaging people I'm interested in, but if they respond with single word/line answers, I will generally move on. It pretty much halts the conversation. If I don't get the feeling that someone is that interested, I'll move on. Why waste his time?
Books: The Dragon Tattoo Series, Savages, The Help, Fifty Shades (yes, I'll admit I've indulged in the series), Gone Girl
Movies: Titanic, Grease, Saturday Night Fever, the Warriors, Magic Mike (for the eye candy - hee hee hee), Sarah's Key, Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Meet the Parents, Paranormal Activity. Many others...
Food: Thai, Italian, Cuban, Chinese and Japanese (though I don't like sushi). I will try anything.
Wait. This says "things." As for people, my kids, hands down.
Also, as flattering as it is, I'm not looking for a casual hook-up with a 21 year old. :-) Actually, with no one...
