Periodically people comment about not being ready to date and how they think they aren''t ready and that they wouldn''t date themselves so for the record and apologies for my momentary lack of humility but I would date me!!!!!!! I think I''m pretty awesome. I''m a good and loyal friend. I''m in great shape, well educated with a good job, lots of hobbies, intellectually curious and I don''t need to be handheld through life or emotionally propped up by someone else. Now if I could just find a guy who''s the same ....

HEll yeah Cayc. I feel the same damn way. I just never say anything because I don't want to look conceded. But, I am glad I am not the only one that feels this way.

Hell, I am beautiful, pretty fit, I tell truth, You can look at anything of mine because I don't hide anything. I love to cook and I love to cook with the mans help. I love who I am, I love my big heart and that I don't take shit anymore from NO ONE, I have a good job, I am loyal, I don't talk or try to judge anyone. I am independent, I like a challenge (working on things in house, car, ect), And I love to have fun... I love to laugh

I agree with AMA, but I have to add: if you find that guy, make sure he has a brother for me!

And a younger brother for fun would it be to be sister-in-laws with you lovely ladies. You'd be the best in laws ever.

Love this. I have a window decal that a friend gave me that says that very thing. Haven't had the courage to put it on my car! But, heck it might be a good way to meet people

Just heard this encouragement the other night from a dating coach regarding finding someone terrific: "If you exist, he exists"

Pfffft, please! I WISH I could find the male me! I would date him/me so fast. I'd marry him. And I'm NEVER getting married again!
I'm not conceited either. But hell, if my husband had had half the integrity and honor (well then he never would have cheated right) that I have, I could live with that half forever.
If he were as generous, fiercely protective and loyal, yep, that would be a real catch!
You rock cayc! Don't let his brokenness allow you to forget it either!
