I would like to think I'm an honest person. My friends have qualities very much like my own and each bring something different and unique to make them special. Trustworthy, kind, considerate, open, "not quite balanced", great listeners, talkers, and generally great laughs. I've moved around alot (my father was a military engineer)so, I consider my friends my extended family. I would be looking for these same qualities in a partner. I'm stubborn at times, like my space, and have no tollerance for clingy people. I'm working on my faults. . . . really! I see myself as faithful, kind, courteous and I think I have a good sense of humor. And I can cook too! Wow, multi-talented or what!? It has been awhile since I've had a sincere relationship and would like to meet someone who doesn't judge a book by it's cover. Believe it or not, I'm far from perfect. . . . close. . . but not perfect. . . yet. I would love to say that appearance doesn't matter but. . . . . it does help. Sorry, but, it's a sad fact of being human. I'm working on my own weight (yikes!) and I've always been attracted to tall, trim men. Ok, I've said it! Don't you hate reading that stuff. Sometimes reality bites. But the sad fact is. . . . are you ready. . . . . I'm very curvy. My father was in the military so, I have a very good understanding of this type of life. I enjoyed it and actually miss moving around. I've been in the Ottawa area (mostly Gatineau)for the last 10 years (at least) but, since I don't drive I'm a little clueless as to where everything is. I've only lived in Ottawa for 4 years. I went back to church about a year ago. The death of my father hit me very hard. But with the support of my family and friends, I'm finally seeing the light again. The church I found has been a blessing and has brought me great peace. Well, how's that for an intro! Would love to hear from you. Cheers!
