A little about me...
Where do I start?! :-) I'm interested in meeting a good man, someone who's the right fit for me, so I'm giving internet dating a try. I'm looking for a great companion and friend first, and if it develops mutually into something more, that would be great as well!
About me~ real/genuine; enjoy communication~ talking/listening/writing; quite intelligent (but not Ms Einstein); adventurous/spontaneous/outgoing, (not always checking my watch); quick wit/sense of humor; mentally together (no head games, not a drama queen); honest/responsible/morals; love children/animals/nature; love to travel/explore; great cook; artistic/creative; patient/laid back; organized; attractive; loyal/unassuming; try my best to be kind/compassionate/thoughtful/understanding; loving/affectionate; sociable/energetic; & spiritual w/conservative values! :-)
I also have a wonderful, 23 year old son that I've raised as a single mom. He's currently a college senior, on the Dean's List :-) and has been the light of my life. He's wise beyond his years, and I'm very proud of the fine young man he has grown into! It would be great to find a man who would ultimately appreciate and welcome him into their life as well!
About the one I'm looking for...
In the real world, there is no such thing as a perfect person, none of us are so lucky! However, if I could choose my ideal man, he would: believe in the Golden Rule~ treat others as he would like to be treated; be real/genuine; be intelligent/informed...(someone who can carry on an interesting conversation with a reasonable amount of knowledge); strive to have good communication with others~ be it talking or listening; genuinely witty...meaning someone who enjoys the humorous side of life instead of being terminally serious (boring!); be emotionally healthy at this point in their life; have no unreasonable jealousy issues; be honest and strong enough to do the right thing; attempt to handle life's frustrations/setbacks with patience; work to mutually resolve arguments/conflicts; comfortable giving/receiving affection; know/believe in himself; love children & animals; be reasonably good looking; care about the way he looks/dresses without being overly vain/obsessed with his physical appearance; have no need for unhealthy addictions/crutches; self confident overall; doesn't feel the need to brag or name drop; responsible...strives for financial security; has a true spiritual side~ follows God's laws as he understands Him.
I'd just like to add...
OK...that's my wish list...hope it's not unreasonable at this point in my life, and I hope you're out there! :-) Again, although I'm certainly not perfect either, I do have a lot to offer the right man, and would hope that he would do the same for me! Honestly, we shouldn't have to settle at this point in our lives! We all have "baggage", but no one says we have to drag it around with us!
Thanks for stopping by and viewing my profile, and good luck in your search! :-)
Footnote...Just want to mention, if someone chooses not to add a (current) photo(s) to their profile, or feel the need to give any information about themselves, just "send me a message", I will not respond. And, for those of you so inclined...and you know who you are: I'm really not interested in having a meaningful one night relationship, nor am I only interested in a friend-with-benefits. ;-)

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
It's what life is all about... Having someone to love is a family. Having somewhere to go is a home. Having both is a blessing! Happiness is making new memories each year with family and friends, And most importantly, thanking God for all I have...priceless!
Nature and Outdoors
I love observing animals in their natural habitat; watching a vegetable garden grow; walking in the country after a rain; camping near a clean, mountain stream; dining in Palm Desert in the late afternoon in the spring; shopping at a farmer's market for local, organic produce; heading for Vegas on a warm, summer evening; a great outdoor concert...the list goes on and on! :-)
I like going to various car racing events (nascar, nhra, cruise nights, car club runs, etc); prof basketball, boxing matches, pro football games, and some baseball. I enjoy attending most events/games, including kids team/league sports...especially outdoors on a day when the weather is beautiful!
