Right, I don't look over 50 but I am! Good genes I believe!
I am full of life, love to meet new people, love to talk and figure out what makes a person tick woman; but most of all I want to connect with people because I rarely meet a stranger. Being outdoors enjoying this wonderful world makes me happy... let's go camping, swimming, biking, walking or to an outdoor concert. My job is great and a blessing after three years pursuing my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I currently work with adoptive families as they make the most of becoming forever families to kids from hard places.
As you see on my profile, I am definitely looking for someone to date regularly and eventually I want to be in a committed relationship with a great man. This guy will be strong yet able to compromise, wise yet not a know-it-all, have structure but also be easy-going, like a schedule but be open to change in the moment if something exciting comes up, adventurous yet stable & trustworthy, and looking for a truly equal partner who values me.
My life is full and drama-free and I would like someone to share it with who would be my equal while we challenge each other to grow!
I have adult children... one who lives in FL with my grandson and one who is my roommate while his wedding in October 2015. I took about 17 years away from the dating scene to raise my wonderful children. Now that they are both happy and great young adults; I can focus on finding my happy ending.
I have many friends... white friends, black friends, mixed race friends and friends who have color in their family. I love and respect everyone exactly the same and don't discriminate.
I'd love to hear more about you! There is so much more to get to know so just ask!! I look forward to meeting you. :-) If you want to meet me, message me so I will know. Let's find out if we have things in common. :-)
Please email me if you'd like to know more. Writing a few paragraphs can really only scratch the surface of who someone is!
I think the answer for this question would be something to discuss with my date but if left totally up to me I would prefer to have a nice dinner together with plans to then "play things by ear" as to whether we go listen to jazz music, take a walk in the moonlight, bowl a few games or just linger over coffee and dessert. Each date and each person is unique so just spending time talking to find out more is great. I prefer that first dates be simple so that neither person feels uncomfortable and can just relax and let their real self shine. What night is good for you? :-)
