Hi, My name is Gail I've been a member here on POF for about 3 1/2 years, on and off. I've met some great guys and had a few relationships....but still haven't met my "Mr. Right". Please don't be shy, if you find there is a teensy bit of interest.....send me a note to say Hi! I'd love to hear from you!
I think the first thing I need to discuss is the fact that I've had to deal with breast cancer twice. Yes, I've had lots of surgery and chemo....But that was four years ago and I've been healthy since . It has been a problem or an important issue for a few of the gentlemen I've met, due to them losing a loved one to cancer. Believe me.....I do understand. But it's also why I'm writing about the subject here in my profile. To save any heartache down the road.
I have to be honest and say that in April I got a dui in Placer County. My blood alcohol level was only .05, not .08 which is legally drunk. I've lost my license until I can finish paying off the fine (about 1600.00). It makes life a bit more difficult, but I manage.
I'm still looking for that one special man who can make my heart go pitter patter. The one that takes my breath away. A man who will look me straight in the eyes when talking to me - confident, sexy!
Love is not just the highs and lows that come with romance, true love is steady and constant.....comforting and secure. Affection is an important part of any relationship. Holding hands, sharing our dreams, enjoying the ordinary moments as well as the celebrations. Life is uncertain, unpredictable. We need to be able to weather the good and bad.....Together
Relationships take time to build and grow, a lifetime of learning each others habits, likes and dislikes. But that special connection, that initial exchange of eye contact … that feeling of "Ohhhh", has to be there right from the start. I mean the chemistry we all want. And yes, I do believe instant attraction is possible! Like I said, building the relationship takes time, but.....
Right from the beginning I’ve said my goal is to find someone who will want me for who I am - idiosyncrasies and all. Not someone they can mold me into. I’m not perfect and certainly not looking for perfection. My needs are simple. I'm looking for an old fashioned gentleman who knows how to treat a woman with respect. Someone who knows when to listen and when to offer advice. A partner, companion, best friend, confidante and lover. In turn you can expect to be pampered, spoiled, teased and showered with affection. I’m looking forward to focusing my attention on making you happy. You will have my heart as I will have yours…..
Lets see…I describe myself as strong, confident, sweet and sensitive, with a sassy, wild and crazy side as well. I tend to be more on the spontaneous side rather than predictable. I like things orderly and in their place, but don’t fret if they aren’t. I’m rather emotional (in a good way), I love to laugh and hear dumb jokes! Being a recent cancer patient has completely changed my life and my priorities.
I honestly have to admit that watching a good csi or law in order is great fun for me! I like to take nightly walks, maybe dinner on a blanket out under the stars? I also like to put on one of my slinky dresses and heels and go out for the evening.
I've been told I have a good sense of humor, I truly love listening to people talk about their travels and adventures. I'm interested in finding a guy who likes to tinker around the house, who doesn’t feel the need to be on the go all the time. I do have a leather jacket and a motorcycle helmet for those who have bikes. It is definitely not a must for me, I enjoy riding....but it's not something I am passionate about.
I grew up with 4 boys, like I said, so I can put on a sweater with my jeans and boots (Ok, so, I'll admit to 10 pairs of boots in my closet). Since I love fishing......I can easily bait my own hooks, catch a big fish, get it off the hook and onto the stringer...then clean it and get it ready for cooking! I have all my own fishing gear and clothes to wear if we go camping for the weekend.
I think I'm easy to please. A smile, a wink...Take me to your favorite dive so we can have a drink and play pool and listen to some good ole country music, maybe help me remember what it’s like to slow dance, drive us to a little coastal town where we can walk and talk and hold hands, chase me around the kitchen as we fix some sort of pasta dish - then have dinner on the patio watching the sunset. Laugh with me, talk with me, kiss me passionately, tell me stories about your adventures to places I've never been or seen.
Honestly, it’s the little things we do together that make our time special. At the end of the day, whats really important? It's to have a loved one to kiss goodnight, say I Love You, then curl up with and drift off to sleep.
I've said in the past that I don't believe in waiting weeks and weeks to meet in person. I’m not a shy woman, if I feel there might be something there after a phone call or two, why wait? I’m not looking to rush into anything but life is to short, much to short to be spent alone. So, lets take a chance, throw caution to the wind as the saying goes..
Musically - Rod Stewarts newer sounds and anything by the Eagles are my favorites. I also like Gwen Stefani, Train, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Journey, Joe Nichols, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles and the greatest of all...Aretha Franklin.
I am NOT a super athlete or a gym rat and have no desire to be one either...If you're looking for the perfect image of a Barbie Doll, someone who can "keep up" with you, then I'm probably not the woman for you. My exercise routine consists of walking or riding my bike at a relaxed pace. Just enjoying every minute of every hour of every day.
If you find something I've said or maybe a picture that makes your heart go pitter patter, then write and introduce yourself. I'd love to hear from you. But be honest, say what you feel in your heart...not what you think I want you to say.
Take Care and Happy Hunting.......Gail
