I can be charming, alluring and beautiful in a non-glamour-queen way. I am a mixture of dichotomies; embarrassingly proficient in the domestic arts for a feminist, a smart blond, sexy grandmother, just refusing to fit any female stereotype. I am just as comfortable fixing a car as a soufflé. I love the outdoors; flora and fauna like a country girl but also the culture and arts of city life. I adore (and often talk to) all animals but at the moment have five cats taking over my life.
At times I have been blessed with vast material resources and at others have been challenged to apply my skills of thrift and economy in order to make ends meet. However, I temper my admonishment of vulgar extravagance with a little good old-fashioned favoritism for the finer things in life. There is much to be said for quality over quantity.
I have a mind of my own and am looking for a man that can value and/or tolerate other peoples' points of view. I do not affiliate with political parties as much as try to judge each issue on its own merits. I am more logical/rational than femininely intuitive. I enjoy open communication and friendly debate. I will never stop educating myself, I love learning.
I am strong, loyal, honorable, honest, and spiritual but not bound by organized religion. I value personal choice, human rights and justice. If I am unsatisfied with something or some one, do not expect me to be quiet. I consider myself proficient with a good track record for perceiving dishonesty and deception and have no qualms about openly challenging an abuser.
On the other hand, I have been told I have an incredible sense of humor and I can have fun and make fun of almost anything and with any situation. I am forgiving of almost anything done without malice with precaution to have learned from the experience, and far too often am eager to lend comfort with advice, or cheer by admitting a bit of myself in every mistake. I have also been told that I am very kind, loving and generous, but acceptance of that much flattery would totally undo my humble side. :-)
I am happiest when those I love around me are happy. Love & passion for me is in my mind. A man that can conquer and touch me there will be granted his every wish and desire.
