Hi there, I'm an intelligent, independent female who is looking to connect with an honest, caring individual. Someone who has strong values and is goal orientated. I have been told that I have a great smile, and a great sense of humour. I am professionally employed and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am divorced, and have two grown children. I was born in England, moved to Canada in my teens, and am of a mixed racial background...You could say Caucasian with a touch of Black or Black with a touch of Caucasian...
I try to walk daily and follow a healthy living lifestyle. Music ( R&B, Dance, Old Skool, Jazz Standards) is one of my passions together with movie watching (most genres except slasher type horrors). I also enjoy live theatre, mostly musicals. Used to go downtown to the 'big shows' but now spend more time supporting community theatre groups. Currently, I'm working really hard to stay away from Auto by trying to figure out F-Stops, ISO's and shutterspeeds...gottta love digital photography. Furthermore, I enjoy time outdoors, and learning about other people... WOW!! It sounds like an ad for a dating service...oh yeah...that's why I'm here... In addition, I've just started reading and participating in the online forums...must say it's way more entertaining than watching reality T.V.!!
As time is precious, I would also like to keep travel time to a realistic limit. I've tried the travelling back and forth and honestly driving over an hour is not something I am willing to do. Ultimately, I'm looking for that special someone ....someone to laugh with, share with, cry with, and eventually...grow old with...maybe it will be you. As with anything new, let's get to know each other and see where it goes!

As you go through life just remember "that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. Making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." Life sometimes gives you a second chance. You shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. Whenever you decide something with an open heart, you usually make the right decision. You may have pains, but you don’t have to be one. Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. We all still have a lot to learn. Finally, people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel".~(Maya Angelou)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something casual and fun (not a coffe/tea drinker)...nothing too formal...just a chance to get to know each other, I'm sure we can figure something out when the time comes.
