I'm a positive, happy person. I've spent the last five years years becoming self sufficient by working and going to school to give my children a stable life in Tucson near my parents. I have my kids full time, except twice a year for a couple weeks. I'm in a good place in my life, and now want someone to share it with and I have a little more time and flexibility to devote to a committed relationship . I have my master's in Special education, severe and multiple disabilities, and teach kids with autism. I'm so grateful to do something rewarding for me while supporting my family.
I also love music, theatre, and art, and watching sports. I play the piano, sing, sometimes act and dance. I sew to make gifts and sometimes sell homemade thing to make extra money. I love frozen yogurt and custard. I am very active, muscular and still curvy. So if you aren't attracted to curves, it just wasn't meant to be with me. I'm also a huge Star Wars fan.
In relationships, I don't expect perfection, but look for a few traits and deal-breakers.
Must haves: intelligence, honesty, sincerity, kindness, ability to commit to one woman, tolerance and compassion towards others, enough time to develop trust, humor, humility towards God, financial responsibility, ability to have fun, a healthy lifestyle, ability to express emotions in a healthy way. He has to be able to support himself and be responsible. And I need someone really attracted to me who wants physical intimacy...do I need to spell that out? I hope not.
Can't stand: addictions, bad temper, negative temperament, laziness, sedentary lifestyle, controlling behavior.
I love children. All children. If you think children have to be perfect, we will clash, because mine are amazing but not perfect. If you don't have kids or don't feel comfortable or confident with kids, that's ok as long as you can respect and support my efforts.
Gospel- I'm not one who lives in an LDS bubble where every conversation happens to include a church reference, but I've had such life learning experiences, and my spiritual side runs deep and strong. I've been tested and challenged and I know I'm never leaving the church, and that's why I'm here now.
Finally, if you read all this, tell me...during what activities does your personality really show through, and what would I learn from you and about you?
