Thanks for viewing my profile! To start off, I'm a very honest and straight forward person who tries to make every happy moment count. I enjoy being around my friends, they make me laugh. They say that I have a heart of gold and good sense of humor. I love to sing and dance. I would like to meet someone who likes good conversation, is honest, sincere, thoughtful, passionate, romantic, chivalrous, humorous, fun, active, and is looking to be in a committed/intimate relationship. I enjoy hanging out in the burbs but would also really like to explore Chicago more and definitely open to meeting people there to enjoy what the city has to offer. I like going to concerts, theatre, movies, museums, art fairs, hear live bands, Ravinia, parties, dance clubs, dining out, and all sporting events. I also enjoy boating, snorkeling, golfing, working out, and coffee at Starbucks. I feel that it's important to have a lot in common but at the same time I'm real open to trying new interests. I prefer warm weather but would also enjoy downhill skiing and ice skating. I haven't seen much of the world and would like to start traveling more and be able to share those unique experiences with someone special. I've been separated now for over 3 years, house and all, and my divorce will be final by the end of this year. I have 2 wonderful kids, a daughter who's 19 in college and a son who's 14 starting high school. Looking to make the 2nd part of my life the "best ever"! Please only email me if you're serious about getting off JDate, life is too short and precious to waste time. Hoping you're out there :).
