Thank you for your interest. I'll start off by saying I am very family oriented. I have 3 children 27, 22 and 16. Two still live at home. My oldest daughter has recently made me a Grandma and I wear that title proudly. Family values are important to me....I am loyal and honest sometimes to a fault. Integrity is important to me. I practice Christian values and my Faith is what motivates me without it I would not be who I am today. I like who I am and know that I grow with every year of my life striving to be a better person. I have a very open mind but, can be set in some of my ways.
I'm not here looking to get laid so please don't send me emails for sexual encounters. I am attracted to intelligent, humble, and humorous men. I like to have alot of laughter in my home. We play practical jokes on eachother all the time.
I'm pretty independent and know what I'm looking for in a man...compatibility is more important than looks. I'm actually not really attracted to men who most find very good looking, It's all about chemistry for me. I do beleive it takes time for peoples true colors to come out and therefore will take things very slow. I dont sugarcoat things or play games. Im not a clingy jealous type and dont like that in a man either. Although I like alot of attention I simply wont be with someone I don't trust therefore dont need to question your integrity unless given reason. My intuition is always at a peak.
I'm looking for the Love of my life to spend the rest of my days with ( or rather waiting on them to find me ), someone I can treat as I want to be treated. Adored, respected, loved, taken care of physicaly and emotionaly. Not selfish to the others needs. I do beleive a woman has a place in a marriage and therefore must have a strong man in order for me to be in mine as I am a strong woman. I am completely turned off by a man who can't carry a conversation. I'm not interested in an instant relationship I am an extremely patient woman when it comes to that man...I know what works for me and not interested in settling for just anyone. Doesn't mean that I'm not dating in the mean time. Just saying that the fact that I am looking for marriage should'nt scare you off, that is my ultimate desire because I was created to be someones helpmate.
I guess I should add...I absolutely love my Job!! It can be very stressful as there is not much job security...every year the programs I work for are in danger of cuts...but, helping people make positive changes in their lives...and ultimately their childrens lives is very rewarding...makes the stress worth it...besides I was placed in this position I'm in by the Lord and He will determine when it's time to move on.
I would like to be with someone who also likes what they do...passion for their Job...passion for their hobbies...passion to serve the Lord in whatever context He requires of you and of course an endless PASSION FOR ME !!!
