I am an attractive woman, widowed for 10 years. I am around 5'7 with dark hair. I love to hike, cycle, garden, read, and have fun with friends and family. Traveling is something I have been blessed to be able to do more of in recent years. My career as a nurse has been very fulfilling and has always been my calling. After 35 years I still love it and can't imagine doing anything else. I love plants and "try" to grow orchids and various other plants, inside and out. I have 2 goofy dogs that make coming home a joyful experience, even if I've only been gone for 5 minutes!!
I have a pretty eclectic taste in music. I love traditional rock and roll, all the old stuff, but also listen to classical, ska, bluegrass, and recently some global music. I try to get to a music festival almost every year. 2011 I went to Floydfest which was great. Who knows what 2012 will bring!!
I tend to be fairly liberal in politics, but a little more conservative from a moral or ethical point of view. I strive to maintain a positive attitude, especially when life is throwing me a curve, after all it is easy to be positive when everything is going great!
I suppose if I were asked to describe my goals and aspirations, it would be to just live each day in a loving and mindful way. I would love to travel more, do some hiking out west, return to school to complete my degree, and just continue to grown spiritually and emotionally. The older I get, the more I value the simple pleasures of life and appreciate having good people around me who love me and allow me to love them!!
One of the qualities I value the most in people is honesty. It is important to me that a friend or potential
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think a first date should be meeting for coffee or drinks, maybe taking a walk around a park or downtown. Above all, it should be just two people meeting with no pressure, agenda or pretenses, just to get to know each other a little bit and enjoy some time together. Meeting people and dating can be a positive experience especially when both people are open and honest. The chemistry has to right for both and if it isn't, I strive to be honest about that and really appreciate that in return.
