I will do my best to try to avoid sounding cliche..so here goes. I am 40..look in my 30's. I am divorced and have 4 great children, all of whom are over 15. I am a College Graduate. I am compassionate, kind, gentle, truthful and romantic. I have a deep belief that family is the basis of everything valuable in our lives. My values are based on trust, loyalty and honesty. The man I seek would take very good care of himself. I also would wish him to has similar values as myself. I ask that he be truthful and value fidelity. I'm not particular if he has children or not. I am not materialistic, what matters to me more is how I am treated. As I was raised to believe, if you give respect you will get respect. I am an affectionate person and do love a man that is a little protective over his girlfriend. I am not seeking a one night stand..so please do not approach me on that level. I seek a steady, healthy and commited relationship that has a foundation with us starting as friends. Who knows though..perhaps we will have amazing chemistry and fate will bring us together quickly. Only time will tell.
