I am easy-going, kind, and caring. I have often been described as someone who "shines", and though I have had my struggles, I always continue to strive to do just that. I am passionate about my children and they are what I am most proud of in my life. I am also passionate about being a good friend, striving to make a difference, and what is just. I have no interest in men who just want someone they can dominate. I am also not interested in those with passive-aggressive tendencies; I'd rather you just tell me whatever is on your mind and we go from there. Like you, I don't want drama either. I am a beautiful (inside and out), highly intelligent, spirited woman. Though, I truly enjoy being sexy and very pleasurable, I am so much more than that and should be treated as such. I have dreams, desires, goals... I enjoy being an active mother, photography, talking & listening, volunteering, performing in community theatre productions, playing board games (I kill at Boggle), and watching live theatre. I also enjoy traveling and have visited 16 different countries and I studied/lived in London for 6 months (it became my new home town!) I enjoy being adventuresome and having fun, but I also love spending a relaxing evening snuggling and watching a movie on the sofa or bed :) I'm often mistaken for being much younger than I am, not just because I look younger, but because of my youthful essence. However, I still have the life experience and maturity to have a real conversation and to listen with understanding. I believe that friendship and good communication should be the foundation of ANY relationship.
I am new to this and I am open to the various types of arrangements possible ;) I would be able to travel some weekends if you'd like and could do day trips readily. I had given up continuing my education (grad/law degree) to raise my children (who've both been tested/identified as gifted) and at some point within the next couple of years I hope to be able to get back on that path. I have already begun working on my application and researching the schools that I'd be interested in attending. I would like to start saving some money to attain my goals/dreams. Right now as a single parent (my ex lives in another state), I have a very limited income that goes entirely to general living expenses (no extra for extras/fun which I'd like to see change too). I am looking for a mutually beneficial [ ... ] is paramount that we both enjoy the time we spend together.
