Up Front: I do not smoke, nor do I do drugs. If you do, please look elsewhere. I have a teenage daughter who will be living with me for the next four years, minimum. If this presents a problem, please look elsewhere. Not trying to be rude, just being honest up front.
Also, if my profile strikes your interest, let me know with a note/message...not the "meet me button" as I generally do not respond to "meet me" hits.
I am a down to earth person who prefers the simple things in life. I simply want to find someone who is down to earth, comfortable in jeans, but can dress up on occasion when necessary. I enjoy most music (with the exception of punk, rap, heavy metal). I enjoy dancing (although I am rusty and rarely go out to the clubs...to expand, have not been dancing in the past two years!), bike rides, movies, dining, bowling (I'm on a Friday night league), nature trails or walks on the beach. I love college football and love to watch Florida Gators, Alabama, Oklahoma Sooners, Ohio, and FSU...however, I bleed Gator orange and blue! Prefer watching football to basketball, but have been known to get caught up in Gator basketball also...what a season we are having!
I have five children. Two daughters (and six grandchildren) live in the Oklahoma City area. My son currently lives across the street from me with his wife and first baby on the way. I have two daughters still living at home, a 20yo and a 13yo.
I am a paralegal in a Workers' Compensation Law Firm (Insurance Defense) and hope to be moving to Sarasota in the Spring (May time-frame) to be closer to where I work (refuse to call it a J.O.B. as I thoroughly enjoy what I do and who I work with/for). If I do not move in May, chances are I will be staying in Riverview until my youngest daughter graduates from high school. I hope to meet someone close by as I am not fond of long-distance relationships and am not willing to give up my position with the law firm in Sarasota. I am a retired U.S Navy LNC (Chief Legalman). I will always support and defend our military members, past, present and future.
I have been single/divorced for six years and am ready to begin the next chapter in my life. Hopefully with someone down to earth, special, kind, romantic, caring, and fun to be around! Someone who enjoys family times, grilling, the beach, time with friends, going to a football game, or just being together at home, relaxing or working in the yard. Extremely down to earth!
