Basically, I'm the girl next door kind of woman (at 65 I guess I can't refer to myself as a girl). If you are interested in a quick sexual experience before you get to know me, then I am not the woman for you. I'm old fashioned, I guess, in that I actually enjoy dating, getting to know a man well, and liking him before we have a sexual relationship.
Who am I? Well, I think I am a good "catch" (in keeping with the POF theme :). I've been told I'm a Doris Day/Diane Keeton look alike, and I work out several times a week to stay in shape. I'd like to live to be an active 100 so I exercise regularly and try and eat as healthy as possible. I taught elementary school for 37 years and was a dedicated teacher, but now I am retired and ready to enjoy life (no more deadlines, kids, or papers to grade!) I have a good pension, own my own home, and have no children. I was married for 10 years during my 20's, wanted to marry again and have a family, but that didn't happen. I've had several long term relationships over the years, but obviously none were with the man I wanted to spend my life with.
Who am I looking for? First and foremost is an honest, kind man. I am the most honest woman you could meet-honest to a fault! I express my feelings openly and want a man who will try and do the same. I care about others-my family, my friends, the elderly, animals, those not as fortunate as I am. I'd hope to find those qualities in a man also. Laughter is a must in a relationship-and a total turn on for me. Life is too short to be so serious. Make me laugh and I am yours! (not really, but it's a good start!)
I like to stay busy. Several mornings a week I'm at the gym, but I also enjoy walking/hiking, the outdoors, bicycling (on flat bike paths) and dancing. I also enjoy gardening, reading, my home, my cat (are you allergic??), and currently I've taken a new interest in cooking. One of my favorite dates is to plan and cook a meal together with a special man, drink a little wine, and enjoy our meal on my patio. I'm a little bit of a homebody, but I also like to get out and explore. I'd love to meet a man who would like to do some traveling and explore-there is so much to do in northern California, California, the USA, and abroad!
So there you are. That's me. Are you interested?
The first time meeting someone there's always a lot to talk about, so a nice cup of coffee or a glass of wine suits me fine.
If there is a next date, I enjoy being active. I love the outdoors and enjoy walking or hiking just about anywhere. I love animals and enjoy visiting the zoo. Variety is the spice of life!
