A little about me...
I'm originally from RI, moved away in 1997 and came back 2 years ago. I've lived in 6 other states, 3 of which were warm and sunny. I'm not fond of snow, but I came back to be closer to family and friends, and I'm glad I did. I've been divorced for 10 years, and only dated a few times. I haven't met anyone that I've connected with enough to pursue a relationship. I need to feel that spark that excites me and makes me want to get to know someone. That feeling you get when you think you may have found that special someone who's on the same wave length and perfect for you.
Some things that l enjoy are music (preferably rock and blues), The New England Patriots, theatre. ("Wicked" is my all time favorite), movies, traveling, the ocean, playing cards (especially Blackjack and Poker), animals, nature, and children... of all ages.
I have two daughters. My oldest passed away in 2010, and my life was forever changed. I miss her every day, but have learned how to live without her until I see her again. My youngest is happily married and lives in San Antonio, TX. I don't have grandchildren, but I would love to meet someone willing to share theirs!
About the one I'm looking for...
Someone that loves me, flaws and all. Someone that I am comfortable being myself with. He must be honest and loyal, with a positive attitude and a kind heart. He should value his family and enjoy spending time with them if they live close enough. I love to laugh, so a good sense of humor is great. Communication is absolutely necessary in a good relationship, so he needs to be able to share his thoughts and feelings and listen to me when I share mine. He should be able to compromise if need be. Trust is everything and can only be achieved by actions, not words. Liars and cheaters are not welcome in my life. No drama or unfinished business with ex's. If you are co-parenting, it should be respectful, with what's in the best interest of the children as priority.It's just very important to learn from our mistakes and not continue making the same ones. I hope I don't sound like I want too much in a person. It's just that I know who I am, what I need and what I can allow in my heart. I have a lot to offer and am so ready to find someone to make happy. If any of this sounds like you, I would love to meet you.
I'd just like to add...
I truly believe that allowing yourself to be vulnerable is the key to happiness. That takes time and a lot of trust. You really do have to be *all in*.
