I've always thought that the perfect relationship for me is spending quality time with someone who lives down the street. Someone who is busy, happy and fulfilled in his own life and wants to come over after a long and wonderful day doing his own thing to discuss ideas and solutions particularly in the realm of politics. Someone who doesn't expect a conventional "wife". I don't like doing dishes or laundry. I don't like house cleaning. I like ideas. I love projects. I like to solve problems. The way to my heart - is through my brains.
I'm a writer first and foremost....I earn money doing that and I love earning money writing. My books range from thriller to romance. My sister and I have just started a publishing house which is keeping me out of trouble at the moment. I live with my kids and am very active in helping to raise my grandson. It took awhile for my family to realize that I actually work full time.
I love progressive politics and will be volunteering for Bernie Sanders in this election cycle. I'm not interested in religion in the slightest. I'm not a traveler - physically - unless travel is made really easy. Mentally the world is my oyster. I love good conversation with interesting men who are interested in a wide range of things. I love small dinner parties with intelligent people. I spend hours researching things on You Tube.
I don't like mental and emotional games. I'm very straight forward and what you see is pretty much what you get. One thing you will get is a woman with lots of arthritis which limits my physical activities considerably.
I've been divorced for 30+ years with three grown children and three grandchildren. I've lived with people and lived alone - either way I spend hours by myself writing, reading, editing, conversing with writers, managing my publishing team - which has been problematic for people I've lived with who didn't understand exactly what living with a writer meant when we started dating.
I do not find sitting and watching TV companionable. I find it boring - I neither own nor watch television. I'm not particularly interested in sports but if someone else wants to watch them that's fine with me....I think I'm pretty easy but I don't live with me and I'm not sure how living with someone as complete with themselves as I am would be.
