I tried to retire a few times but it has been impossible. I still work a bit - I'm self-employed and like to for the most part. I have 2 wonderful daughters, 3 grandchildren and I'm surrounded by great friends. I'm told I'm attractive - I guess that's a gift from my parents. I own my own home but don't live alone. I live near a college and sometimes have students living here. I love the activity. I love cooking and baking, movies, gardening, fishing, card games, live theater, the symphony now and then, computer stuff, dining out, watching TV, car trips, entertaining friends and much more. Last year I bought myself a Corvette - a birthday present to myself with love! Haha I used to dance - both fun-type and ballroom dancing. I've always wanted to take ballroom dancing lessons; maybe with the right person - but not a must.
I'd like to find a man who enjoys doing some of the same things I do, but doesn't have to do them all. I like being independent like most people my age but would like to be with someone who might introduce me to new activities, be a companion, and do things with his or my friends. I'm a warm friendly woman who reaches out and touches when talking to you. A man who holds hands and hugs for no reason is awfully nice too.
Must love dogs - at present I've got two little ones and one big one; also one very independent cat!
