A little about me...
So, the first thing that most people say about me is that I absolutely love children! I am the oldest of six, from an Irish-Greek-Catholic (yes, you read correctly!) family. I have five children of my own, all close in age and out of college: three daughters and two sons! In addition, I was an English teacher and I am now a middle school administrator. I do love my career but as my own children have grown up, I find myself coming home to an almost empty house. (my youngest lives at home, is seeking his career,and is hardly ever at home!) I do have a fiesty beagle named Tucker, that I got two years ago, as I needed something "else" in my life. Honestly, I had about given up on searching for a "soulmate," but came across this site quite by accident. Hmmm; it looks intriquing.
Going hand-in-hand with the children theme, family is very important to me. Birthday celebrations, basketball games, hockey tournaments, visiting my daughters in New York City and North Carolina, dining out, making pizza with my sons....all of those things are important to me.
About the one I'm looking for...
In looking for a partner, I am looking for someone who is a good listener and has a positive attitude toward life. We are all in this together! My ideal partner would be just as comfortable with me at a restaurant, a ballgame, a movie or sitting at a family holiday dinner! (with his children included, of course!) His personality would complement mine; I am easy-going about most things, but can be quite animated and passionate other times. People sometimes mistake my patience for passivity, however that is not the case at all. I am looking for a relationship that begins as a friendship and blooms into something much more.
I'd just like to add...
I'd just like to add: Celebrating moments of quiet joy by reading a book, watching a movie, taking a walk are ways that I spend my time. I also love watching college basketball (Syracuse is my favorite), going to movies, concerts, plays and picnicking near a lake or the ocean. I am a good listener and consider myself energetic and positive. I talk alot when I am passionate about a subject, which usually involves education and children. I raised my five children alone, and consider myself an independent person. The right man would have to be very special indeed.
