Hello. I am an energetic, loving, independent woman who has been single since 1987. I have 1 married daughter and 3 grandaughters that live in Texas. I love to cook, dance, take long rides anywhere, travel, fishing, camping, and on cold winter evenings I like a good movie, a nice fire and some good hot coffee or some good cheap wine. I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh (it keeps you young.) I am looking for someone who enjoys similar things and can be somewhat spontaneous. He must be family oriented,independant, self sufficient and a happy, mellow personality, this is very important to me. Would like to take the time to get to know you. I love life and all it has to offer, and would love to meet someone who feels the same. Okay, so we're not spring chickens anymore, but I can still give the roosters a run for their money (hee hee). My mind still thinks I'm 30 something and my heart thinks I'm 20. Dance in the rain if you can, smile at all costs and learn to appreciate all that you have. If these are things you are interested in as well, please contact me, I would love to hear from you.
Ah the dreaded first date. How about a simple quiet dinner, maybe a drink or two and some light hearted conversation just to break the ice. If it goes well the date could continue at a Starbucks, (or somewhere similar) and some more conversation. I think most of us have a tendancy to make snap judgments about people when we should really take the time to know someone. I agree there must be chemistry but it should also be more than just one's personal appearance. The second date should be a fun time, maybe a really funny movie or just hanging out at the beach, to have a more indepth conversation. Not too much pressure just a relaxed atmosphere and some fun times, I think it's an easier way to get to know someone.
