********Note:......just so ya know. For the time being I'm only here for the forums*******
It seems that as we "mature", it should get easier shouldn't it? After all we have the benefit of past experiences, we are now more confident, self-assured and hopefully, a little wiser. By now we probably have developed our own perception of love and life....so it should be relatively easy to make a good impression on a dating site without having to re-invent yourself...I have discovered I quite like who I am and, hopefully you will see something in me that pleases you as well.
In many respects, I am a very strong woman, but once you know me you will see that I possess a much softer side as well. I am Metis and embrace all sides of my culture and identity. I may not always attend church but I am still very spiritual. I truly believe there is a higher power, a Creator.
My biological children have all flown the coop but I am lucky in that I still have a 15 year old at home, a foster child that I am in the process of adopting. I am also with the "Foster Parent Plan" and have been a fostering a boy in Guatemala for nearly 5 years.... he is now 10 years old...
I treasure my friendships....and once you know me, you will discover that I am a loyal friend and confidant. I have maintained the same friends since childhood. Sarah Ban Breathnach writes, "Children grow up, parents die and sibings leave but friends are continuous
I am a very passionate person and I will fight for what I believe in. I treat people the way I would like to be treated. I dislike bullies, arrogance, lies and disrespectful people....
I prefer warm breezes and sunshine over those long cold winter nights ...and yet, I continue to live in Canada.... I may complain about the cold, the snow and the shovelling... but there isn't anything more beautiful or magical than to look out the window and discover a white wonderland....the stuff that fairytales are made of.
Although I do love the look of winter and of course opening presents on Christmas morning...autumn is my favourite time of the year....I love the coolness, the colours,the smell, the dancing leaves on a windy day...and those piles of unguarded leaves, I'm always tempted to dive in..(must be the kid in me).....
I love Canada, I love Alberta and I love the city I live in. I can't imagine living anywhere else. I am surrounded by beauty....The Creator did well
My taste in music is a bit eclectic...I'm all over the place from Celtic to blues to good ole rock n roll. I love Cold Play, (Chris Martin has incredible vocals), David Wilcox, Bob Seger, Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and my Canadian cronner, Michael Buble...
Food.....yup, like it, I like it a lot, especially a grilled steak with sauteed mushrooms, um um. I prefer salty to sweet(not much of a chocolate person), popcorn with lots of butter, and if I really, really like you...I might even share.*wink*
I'm not much of a drinker ( hopefully no one from the campsite reads this ..lol) Ok, ok, every once in a while I'll tie one on... I am a very social person and I like hanging out with my friends and my family.
I love the Calgary Flames as well as the Montreal Canadians. Used to watch a lot of sports when my brothers were alive. Now, there's no one to enjoy them with.
I am a tactile person, and I love the feel of cool silk against my skin. I also love wearing skirts and dresses...but I'm not what you would call a girly girl...I can get down and dirty with the best of them...lol But being an Alberta girl, I do appreciate slipping into my warm flannel jammies on a cool winter's night...which hangs on for about 7 months of the year...Those of you from the southern states cannot relate to this haha.
I love the smell of freshly washed hair, certain colognes (CK Or Drakkar) and aftershave....oh, just the scent sometimes makes me hunger for those long, deep passionate kisses that carry on and on....Yes...I miss that. *sigh*
So why am I here, what am I looking for? In the words of the great Sigmund Freud, What does a woman want?....."That is a good question" says Freud,...one to which I have not been able to answer"....
Well maybe I can help.
We all want the perfect relationship as do I and we have our ideas as to how it should look , but in the "real" world there is no such thing. We are all looking for the same thing, someone we can trust, someone to share the good and the not so good. Someone to love and someone who will love us back.
I've thought about all the positives in a relationship, and there are many but what I miss the most is the sharing....and the body contact. I want that again, that's what I hunger for. I want to wake up and see him lying there next to me, I want to watch him breathe, kiss the corner of his mouth... I want to listen to the sound of his heart beating, drink in the smell of him and feel his warm embrace and feel and taste his lips on mine. I want to snuggle in to him, tell him how much I adore him... and then close my eyes and know he feels the same way.
Happy fishing.......¯`·.¸¸ .·´¯`· .¸>÷÷(((°>
