I am a kind and courageous girl. Yes I am 46 and I did say girl. I say girl as I playfully look at the world. I see the good all the time and I see only the obvious ‘bad’. Examples of this include bad weather, bad driving, bad language and bad toenails. The rest I naively think can be easily adjusted or ignored. And guess what? I like naïve ‘me’ this way …less angst, less anger, less frustration. ... both for you and me. P.s. don’t think naïve = dumb. I am intellectual, university educated and senior in my field.
At work I get asked – why don’t you want to move up and be Director or VP? The answer is that I am a very very wise girl. I know myself very well. At my level I am talented and appreciated. I daily get the opportunity to encourage and nurture people. I smile 100+ times every day but more importantly I create smiles in others. I don’t need more than I have already. I am satisfied. Challenged at work and respected.
At home amongst friends I get asked – why don’t you date? The answer is the same - I am a very very wise girl. I have built a sanctuary at home with my little family. Passports and Visas are granted on occasion to a special few boys. Those who got their ‘compass’ badge in cub scouts and know how to ‘neck’ like they are back in grade 8 jump to head of the line for consideration. And if you ever played spin the bottle well we will never be bored. Also if you are willing to bear with me as I learn women’s hockey this winter we might just have an open Visa for you here – contact the writer for more information re these recent requirements. Spring and summer Visa extensions may be available for those granted Winter Visas. Reapplication must be made in 2011.
I was raised by my dad (one of 4) and as such I have tremendous respect for men with children who want to be part of their children’s journey. It’s a beautiful sight to see a man who adores his kids and is content with his parenting role. It’s a huge turn on for me. Parenting is very self-less and self-actualizing and as such I am seeking a man who is a parent himself. Less time for me I do realize but more satisfaction for him and his kids. That man is a good fit for me. He will have snippets of time for me and between us we will keep it fresh and exciting. Did I mention ‘spin the bottle’?
My bucket list includes but is not limited to (so if you see similarities here then we might just click):
1. Grand Canyon trip – can we camp out too? How about we get an RV and drive about down there?
2. Mexico – a 5 Star resort …but close to historical pyramids – a mix of luxury and history and culture – nice!! 5 star dining and 1 star dining are a must.
3. Tuscany – 2 months per year upon retirement – ok – a bit dreamy I know but maybe the right person is game for it
4. Hockey – learn to play – I’m signed up and saving for the equipment. They do make all that padding in girlish shades of pink right?
5. Survive a kitchen reno – I want a kitchen big enough for a long wooden farm table that seats a dozen (a dozen friends or kids)
….add your dreams here…to get access to my 5 through 10
Until we meet,
A first date is after I meet you ...its the first time that we really hang out as 'us'. I pack a bottle of wine and 2 glasses and we take the ferry to Toronto Island, blade about all afternoon and then go sit at the lake in the evening and watch the stars and listen to the water. Oh and yes we talk and talk and laugh and laugh ...and maybe we even neck - grin.
