I am loyal, genuine, hard-working and compassionate. I deeply value my family and close friendships, believe strongly in "giving back" to community through time and leadership and support political causes consistent with my values. I love animals (especially dogs and cats) and a variety of sports (both as a participant and a spectator) but I am not into "extreme sports" or extreme workouts (roller blading is a favorite for exercise and relaxation). Since I grew up in Wisconsin, I am, naturally a devoted Packer fan, however, I don't seek an equal passion for the Packers! I have a 12 year old son from my former marriage who lives with me primarily. I understand that disclosing I have a child of this age in my profile may be an impediment to some potential matches, however, I value honesty and my son is also an important part of my life. I am seeking a relationship where I can give and receive true friendship, energy, acceptance and an opportunity to build a life together. I always try to give my best and my decisions and actions in simple terms are guided by whether I can sleep at night.
