Hi! I’ve been out of the dating scene for 12 years. I’m not looking for marriage but also not looking for a hookup. A companion, partner, “my person” is what I hope for. I am energetic, passionate and an “all in” type emotionally. I’m very analytical but also super emotional. I care deeply, and I’m extremely loyal. I’m a straight shooter and know myself very well, so you won’t have much difficulty reading me or knowing how I’m feeling. I have an attitude of gratitude in my daily life. I dislike whiners and am attracted to “doers” not “talkers.” My parents raised me with the old-fashioned work ethic which means I work hard, I do what needs to be done, I am curious, I learn things on my own, I accomplish and I take pride in that. I am the type who doesn’t need many people in life.. just my kids, my parents, my man and a close friend. I’m strong and financially independent and looking for the same. I like someone who is intellectual, hard-working, mature, and highly relational. I have two kids ages 7&8 (half the week). Please don't expect a response if you don't have pics or if you’re only wearing sunglasses or hats. This is online dating so it’s only fair to clearly know who you’re talking to. To show me that you read my entire profile, message me what kind of dog I have.
