Welcome to my profile. :Thanks for stopping by. :)
My profile is composed to weed out incompatibles as much as to attract a close match. WYSIWYG here. :)
Ultimately, I intend to meet a man I'm compatible with to co-create a happy loving life together. I own my house but want a "home" again- where the heart is,- with that special someone, My daughters are grown & on their own. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Love animals!! I'm open to relocation when I do find true love.
Its got to start somewhere, so I'm checking out the pond. So far, its been you get what you pay for situation on this FREE dating site. Lol. I remain hopefully optimistic I'll meet my Mr. Right one way or another.
I'm looking for quality, not quantity; that ONE special someone who shares common interests & goals, values, morals, & lifestyle.
The weed-out 1st part may sound harsh, I'm only interested in communicating with men who I'm genuinely compatible with and who seek a long-term relationship,.
The the type of man I'd like to meet, includes my wish list (why not?).
I'm not looking for perfection & hope you aren't either. It doesn't exist. I'm a perfectly IMperfect, fairly humble, human being. I'm ok with that- in myself and in others.
My time is valuable & so is yours. Lets Invest time & money on fish we're truly compatible with. Maybe it's me, maybe it's not. Take 5min to read this & find out before contacting me. If you lack the attention span to read a profile more than 5 lines, we're probably not compatible.
If we're not compatible, take care & best luck in your search! :)
If you read to the end and think we're pretty compatible, drop me a line -let's see where it goes. Maybe we're that big catch we've been wanting to reel in.
OK. Here's your opportunity to wiggle off the line early ie: what I'm def. NOT looking for.
If you're mean spirited, hurt people or animals for fun, are abusive in any way, are bent on hate, revenge or make yourself feel better by ridiculing others, if you're happy when others experience misfortune, if you are perpetually bored, a perpetual complainer, a Donnie-downer, or a perpetual liar, if your actions dont align with your words, if you're an addict; alcoholic, druggie, gambler or a thief, stalker, an ex-inmate, if you're a Lazy couch potato, if you have serious mental or anger issues, if you're looking for a booty call or friends with benefits, if you're a player, married or in a committed relaitionship & looking for some side-action, seriously, move on! I have no interest in you- at all!!! Be really honest with yourself here. These are all deal-breakers for me.
If you're race-based prejudiced, you have no chance with me.
Then again, if you're prejudiced against ***holes, idiots, mean people and are a fan of the DARWIN AWARDS, read on! We have at least that in common. Lol
If you're a dedicated NASCAR or golf TV-WATCHER,I'm probably not iyour girl.
I'd rather poke my eye out with a stick than sit around watching NASCAR or golf on TV. Alternatively, I wouldn't mind checking them out live. I love new experiences! :)
I'm ok with different interests & am happy going off on my own if this, that, or something else, is your thing. Ultimately, the goal is to find someone to enjoy life's abundance >together with. Too many "you're on your own" interests just won't work. Being connected at the hip 24/7 won't work either. Balance is key.
I won't be interested in you If you've let yourself go & don't take good care of yourself, I like a well groomed man. I also want to enjoy a long, happy & healthy life together! I'm not talking about you being health nut or exercise obsessive; just a man who shares basic clean, healthy living concepts & goals.
Lastly, Mutual attraction & chemistry is very important! I'm attracted to qualities of an individual ie: VALUES, INTEGRITY, etc. more so than outer casings. Still, there must be chemistry & mutual attraction. A photogenic person, imo, if ugly on the inside, is just ugly all over. If you're a super handsome jerk, you're just a jerk to me. If your semi-attractive with a big heart & lots of integrity, you're a huge turn-on. If you're uber bushy & look like you just came out of a cave- not interested. :P
- End neg aspect of profile. Yay! :)
Who am I?
I'm a self-confident, reasonably attractive, goal-oriented, educated, cultured, adventurous world traveler - loyal to the bone.
A loving, nurturing home & hearth is my favorite core Value. From This rock-solid foundation, life radiates into- all things are possible!
Loyalty & trust are valuable traits that are earned. I'm not a flock-follower nor am I loyal because someone demands it.
I'm pretty laid back most of the time. I'm an optimist with firm grounding in reality. It's not all sunshine & rainbows. It's not all black clouds & dreary. Life, in all its glory & heartbreak, is what it is. I bend- I don't break.
I'm politically independent & fiscally midline.
I'm a tactile & sensual being.
I respect peoples boundaries, & am courteous. I expect the same in return.
I love life & learning. I can't remember the last time I was bored. .
I'm spiritual, not religious, & am non-judgmental towards others' beliefs as long as they aren't shoved down my throat or infringe on basic human rights.
I'm eclectic & enjoy a wide variety of music, activities and interests.
I enjoy nature & the great outdoors, traveling, hiking, kayaking, going on big & small adventures, having fun in the sun, or checking out the arts: museums, art galleries, concerts, concertos, symphonies, theater,the ballet & opera. I like garage sales & antique-ing in moderation, home improvement, DIY, gardening, creativity, painiting, drawing, reading, movies, nice dinners, snuggling, kissing, love-making & helping others. Basically, I love life!
I'm not likely to sleep in a bag, on the ground, in a tent. If that's the woman you're looking for, I'm not your girl. However, I've roughed it & liked it. Depends on the situation. I AM up for an occasional camping trip if I can sleep in a hammock, on an airbed, or in a boat or a camper. Im much more into Cush these days. ;)
I'm a girly-girl who loves to dress to the nines for an evening out, or down for adventures, and also hanging out in "comfies".
I enjoy occasional lazy days, indulgences in ethnic & gourmet foods, decadent desserts, and take out- in moderation.
I enjoy healthy living & subscribe to everything in moderation. I take care of myself inside & out. I eat healthy, exercise and meditate though I'm not obsessive or preachy about it. I prefer fun activities to canned exercise.
I'm an excellent cook -but don't want to 24/7-3
Something that gives us the opportunity to get to know each another well enough to see if we want to spend more time together.
Hopefully, we'll laugh & enjoy each others company, whether or not we want a second date.
If we go on a second or third date; Something adventurous, active, cultural, interesting, enlightening, spontaneous or silly. :)
