Hmm where to start...
I'm single and a mother of a grown up daughter. We're very close. We can be laughing like best friends one moment and having a mom and daughter talk the next.
I spent most of my life with the same man from the time I was 14 until I was around 33. And since then I just haven't been able to find that special someone who excepts me for who I am inside and out. And I missed a lot in that time frame and have been trying to catch up in this dating field. It's scary at times. ( for real)
I own my own home and live in the country (as I call it) and love it. I love having the freedom of making noise and no one complaining constantly or banging on walls telling me to keep it down.
I love decorating and remodeling. I spend a lot of time on projects to my house and thinking about what the next one will be.
I also enjoy making crafts, card making and crocheting. I love making things for people as well as receiving them.
I tend to buy old things. Like a blanket someone has crocheted etc. Older things to me make my house feel comfortable. I don't need fancy things either. If my old television is working then I'm happy. Sure I can go buy a new one but I don't need to. I'm not about the material things in life. Life's too short to focus on that. I'd rather spend the money on food and drinks then have a bunch of family and friends come over for some lasting memories.
I also write poetry. It has been a way to release for many years. I haven't been writing lately as much as I use to but who knows that could change.
I love to cook. I have my parents over every Sunday for dinner. Cooking also gives me a way to mix things up and be creative. Plus every dinner I've held has turned into a wonderful time for me to remember.
Some things about me that might bother some that I put out right off so you can decide whether you wish to talk with me or not...
I wear a hearing aid... I've had a problem hearing since I was young. I don't drive or own a car. The man I was with for so long never let me do anything and I just haven't got around to trying that experience yet. Well or having anyone help me with it either.
And awhile back I got sick with an illness which I am overcoming. It put me in a wheelchair cause I couldn't walk for more then a few steps. I have gotten way better. And now can walk longer distances etc. And with each day am coming back to my old self and getting stronger. But I have nothing to hide. If you want to know more about all that then ask and I will explain all.
And over the past year I've lost over 200lbs and I'm still going.(yes I was a very big bbw) And no I didn't have the lapband or anything else. I did it all myself with willpower. And I'm proud of how far I've come.But now I'm in that I don't like how my body looks stage. I feel like a giant marshmallow I tell everyone. lol But it takes time to finish losing and tone everything up so I'm told. I shall hang in there.
Well I think that's enough of a ramble about myself and hope I haven't bored anyone to sleep. Hopefully someone took the time to really read it all and if that's you. Send me a message. I'd love to hear from you.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Maybe meet at a local restaurant for a drink. So we could talk and get to know one another a little bit better. Or see what suggestions the other person has. I'm open to hear all ideas.
