Divorced 5 years, mom of two teenage boys, and loving my place in life. Not necessarily looking for my soul mate but open to it if it happens. In the meantime, I would like to meet that special someone who I look forward to seeing, feels the same, has time, and is available. I'm tired of games (been there, done that) and just want stability. I am absolutely NOT looking for a hook-up nor serial daters. I'm into photography, weekend getaways, planned and spontaneous dates if we suddenly have free time. I love a night on the town as much as staying in to watch a great flick, wine and snuggles, especially if it feels right.
I realize that everyone approaches online dating differently, so I figured I'd outline how it works for me. If there is interest, I like to correspond on site at first, get to know a little more about each other this way. Then if we are feeling it, switch to email, and eventually texting/phone. If I get one word or very short messages as we correspond, and don't see an interest in moving things along (ie planning our "meet n greet") I'll assume you are too busy or not that interested and will let you be and move on. Hint: I am a traditional girl at heart in some things and generally don't do the asking out. But I'll definitely show my interest so you can take it from there. ;)
Books: The Girl on the Train, The Dragon Tattoo Series, Savages, The Help, Fifty Shades (yes, I'll admit I've indulged in the series), Gone Girl, Grit
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...
