Was diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer five years ago - having gone through that has given me perspective. The little stuff I used to stress out about? Kicked to the curb... Not to say that I'm completely carefree - I do have baggage. Well...not really baggage. Carry-on maybe? Accessories? It's all in how we deal: check it, toss it, keep the valuable content...
Speaking of baggage...like 99% of everyone else on dating websites, I like to travel. Favorite destination? Hawaii... I once traveled to the islands with a 3-month-old in a Baby Bjorn and a two-year-old in tow, hauled a double stroller with a cooler full of tamales and burritos (my brother misses the food). Now that the kids are older, traveling is oh-so-much easier. I got my own personal porters! Sshhh, don't tell 'em...
Not too big on the bar/club scene...unless it's a gay bar/club - no wait for the women's restroom! And if a man compliments me on my get-up, he means it...I KNOW I got it going on if my outfit is gay-approved! But, if the occasion calls for it, I will go to a "straight" club. Begrudgingly. At first. And then I'll probably have a good time gettin' my groove on...
Who am I looking for? I'm not looking for someone to be my kids' dad - one baby daddy is enough! I am looking for someone who will be a friend to them, and can empathize with the life of a single parent. Someone I simply enjoy BEING with. Someone honest...stable...kind...loving...in general good health...who possesses a wicked sense of humor...and can tolerate my snoring. ;-)
