Just a good ole southern girl, raised in Oklahoma in the oilpatch. Divorced after 22 years, just pullin' myself up by my bootstraps and learnin' about the single life all over again, and hey...I kinda like it !
I don't like to brag about myself nor do I fancy puttin' myself down either. You'll have to pardon all the apostrophe's but I type just like I speak. I'm very laid back and even tempered, I must say I've learned that from my horse. I was raised in the country, raised a family in the country, but now...single in the city and love it just as much.
I work in the petroleum industry and have a very stressful job, that I probably have put too much energy into it lately. I'm a recovering workaholic, but I've learned to leave work at work. People say I'm "out there" sometimes, but I make 'em think. The persona of a dingy blonde...but smart like a fox. I suppose I use charm as a defense sometimes, so people won't expect more out of me than I'm willin' to give.
I have lifelong friends who I treasure and I try to make new ones ever'day. I love my home and "piddle" alot (to you non-Texans, that means..well.. ya know...putz around doin' stuff) Sometimes ya gotta sit on me and make me be still but I'm always grateful when someone does. Then I relax and enjoy the company I keep.
I don't NEED a man in my life, I just WANT one. I'm financially secure, very settled for someone recently divorced, anyway. I don't have to be entertained, nor do I need endless attention. I don't want any more or any less than a man who is my equal. Equal doesn't mean monetarily or material wise, but is more or less my partner. A man who balances me. I am a happy person because I love like one. I want to make a happy man...happier.
I'm a lady, but not a prude. I worship Jesus and wear dresses. I love a cold beer driftin' down a lazy creek, I love roadtrips and bubble baths and cookie dough. I'm workin' on my spontaneity, but I'm so dayum responsible, it's hard. I love music, especially blues guitar, traditional country (Haggard not Chesney), and of course classic rock. I love to dance thanks to my Daddy, who taught me to jitterbug, western swing and two step when I was five years old and I never stopped. I like to spend my free time on the weekends, lazin' at the pool with friends. I live in an apartment community and enjoy my neighbors.
I have a 25 year old daughter and two beautiful grandchildren ages 3 and 4 who live in Oklahoma. They just moved back to Oklahoma, so I'm tryin' to find my "place" and what that roll is...but I do know....I'm doin' my best to set the best example for her to follow and she teaches me alot too. My family is very close, we enjoy each other and laugh ALOT ! We bring out the best in each other. Always have...always will.
I post here on the forums alot, so read me up ! lol. I won't respond to men with profiles with cheesy pics, of bare chests and your boy toys. Put your shirt on and grow up. It's okay to show your motorcycle. I understand gentlemen ride bikes, just like ladies ride horses. I don't consider either of those "toys", but a way of life. I love a manly man, who doesn't mind gettin' dirty. I'm NOT into the new "metrosexual man" at all. It gives me the shivers, that some men actually have their entire body waxed. Whatever floats your boat...but I prefer a natural man. Besides that... they take up all the spa appointments !
I really don't want to send endless POF messages back and forth, I have alot to say, but face to face is better for me. Lets meet...whadya say ?
I also hate texting but I do understand nowadays it's the mainstay of communication, but I won't do it while I drive. If I give you my phone number, please just call and talk to me....it's a phone for goodness sakes !
I'm sunny in Texas.
Meet for a drink and talk, not necessarily dinner ~ I'm a picky eater and pricey meals don't impress me. I can cook better than any chef. I'm not PROUD of the fact I'd rather eat mac'n cheese than steak tartare. I'm a very cheap date.
