So... this may end up being a little long winded, but I'm going to do my best to be open and honest about what I'm looking for, and hopefully that fits with someone who genuinely wants the same things. Preferably between the ages of 40- 60 years. Please take no offense, but I'm not really into dating someone less than that, that's just kind of weird for me.
I'm looking for something real, and long term. I don't have the energy, or time really, for games or just dating around. I'm looking for 1 person, who hopefully will be my forever. So please, if you respond to this, be looking for the same thing as me.
Some things about me:
I'm 36, and a single mom. I have a kid I'm not looking for someone with expectations of being "taken care of. In my free time, I like to be outside, doing almost anything. Hiking, kayaking, driving for a day, traveling, etc. I enjoy reading, music, crochet, painting/drawing, and pretty much anything crafty. I volunteer for a few different organizations as well. i love kids
Some things about me as a partner; I will be your best friend, hopefully someone you feel like you can share anything and everything with. I will always do my best to lift you up, and be on your side. I don't like fighting, and will sincerely do my best to talk any issues through without resorting to raised voices between us.
Some things I'm looking for in a partner:
-Please have kids, or at least be 100% willing to be part of a family that will include my kid, and one day treat as your own. I know that this can be a difficult thing to accept for someone who doesn't have kids.
-Please have a job/career. I'm not asking you to take care of me, and likewise, . I need a partner in life, so please have a good work ethic, and goals for life..
-Please be willing to be friends first., I believe this needs to be built on friendship first. so that we get to know each other better
-Please love your family. How you feel about and treat your family, close or extended, is a good preview into how you'll one day treat mine. My family is very open and loving, and will generally accept people almost immediately until they're given reason not to.
-Please be as supportive of me as I'll be with you. I'm not looking to change you at all, nor do I want to feel like someone wants me to change.
All this being said, I'm just genuinely hoping to find someone who just, clicks with me. After some time and talking, I'm sure we'll know it when it happens. So if you've made it this far, and all of this sounds like something you'd be interested in talking about, write me back with your favorite hobby as the subject, and a picture.
