(The big, tall guys in the pic with me are my "baby" brothers) I am 5' 8" so you can figure they aren't short!
Photo was taken May 2012.
I have lived in different areas of NE Ohio over the last nine years. I grew up in Brunswick Ohio. I am now in Wooster Ohio going on 3 years. I have 2 daughters in Wooster with 3 grand children here, and a son, recently moved to Wooster who has 4 children (Two are in FL, one in OH, and one in SC ). I have been divorced over 10 yrs now. (Was married 25 yrs.) I am 5' 8", have green/blue eyes and my hair is a dark blond. Size 16. I am intelligent and love deep, thinking, conversations. My health is good, with very few issues.
If you have kids still growing up, or you may have grandchildren you are raising, that is fine.
I love animals, but I have no pets at this time. I do know what I am looking for and don’t expect to find too many on any dating site that could be a match. Even if they are an initial match doesn't mean they will be the one for a lifetime. So, now you know I am not being naive on here. But, I'm still very hopeful!
I enjoy the out-of-doors and love watching and being with people. I like doing things and going places, but also like the peace and quiet of being home. I enjoy cooking, reading, watching a good movie (not all “chick-flicks” by any means either! I love Science fiction and adventure movies, and a good western too).
I think out of the box. I really am not your normal, average woman. But along the normal, average things I love a bargain, thus I love discount stores, flea markets, garage sales and auctions resale shops and antique stores. I love the woods, hiking, fishing and nature and the like. I love flowers and gardening. Read my interests in the "Interest" section for more about who I am and some of my interests.(Interests doesn't mean I do all those things. No one has that much time!)
I can landscape (I miss my flower beds!), paint a house, sew up a suit, hang wall-paper, preserve the food I can grow. I can trim trees, mow lawns, to mention only a few things I can do to run a household, besides the normal "woman" chores such as cooking and cleaning. I am artistic and creative. I come with a lot of abilities and bring a lot to the table, and I truly expect that from my partner in life to be, to have gained many abilities in his lifetime, so we can blend into a wonderful couple!!
I guess I am somewhat of a ‘tom-boy’, but definitely feminine. (My grown nephew (33) just told his mom I am a classy lady, if that counts for anything?) I am more of a casual, blue-jeans gal in general, but can dress up and socialize with the best of them.
Summer and autumn are my favorite seasons. Fall and its splendor never lasts long enough to suit me. I really don't like winter and cold, but winter does give me a chance to catch up on reading and the sparkling snow and even the ice storms are beautiful! Along with some possible hugging?
I’m spiritual, not religious - they are not the same thing. (Ask me about that if it concerns you.)
I am looking for a friend to grow into a long term possible. I am not sure I want to marry again. So, if that bothers you, you might want to move on. It isn't out of the question. I am just not sure I would. I want it all, well realistically, mostly all, knowing nothing and no one is perfect, including me! I would like someone with some similar interests (NOT all the same, of course. Check out my interest list, there are a lot to share there and I wouldn't mind adding some of yours.). Looking for someone considerate, romantic, sharing, attractive to me (chemistry). I want someone I would be able to say that I could "kiss that face" sort of attraction so you don't have to be an Adonis. That might intimidate me anyway. I could possible relocate for the right person if the circumstances were right. It truly is much more about compatibility than anything else!
He should also be attentive, intelligent, serious, but not overly serious, compassionate, caring, and hold a good sense of humor. One who loves life and doing things, but also likes down time with quiet and peace.
I want that old man and old woman still holding hands down the road, and still loving each other years from now. What can I say? I am a hopeless romantic! Well, not hopeless, but you get the picture!
I would love to be “courted”, which many would think is old-fashioned, but I believe we could use some old-fashioned values again in our "gone-nuts" society now-a-days! What was old can be "new" again. People rush into relationships so many times now without even getting to know the person, courting may be a thing that would fill that void and people could avoid disastrous relationships and heartaches.
I keep hearing what a "great catch" I would be. So, will someone please pull the line in! I hate to keep nibbling without getting "hooked"!!
THE DEAL BREAKERS: If you are married, or with someone, wanting casual sex, unstable mentally or emotionally, or financially, smokers, alcoholism, illegal drug use, or other addictions, arrogance/self righteous, religious zealots, hatred, abusiveness of any sort, whiners/complainers, and dishonesty, or anyone looking for a "Christian" wife (I don’t mind if you are Christian, but I am not a church goer. and that will not change.)
