Hi to everyone who has taken the time to read my profile. I am not very good when it comes to talking about me, but I am going to give it a shot. First, let me say that I am not here looking for hook-ups or one night stands. I am looking for a serious relationship.
I am 41yo white female with average length red hair (dyed that way to cover the grey sneaking in). I have brown eyes, stand 5’6” and weigh 220 lbs. What is the old adage about a bigger woman? “More cushion for the pushin”. :)
I have three children, one son (21) and two daughters (20 and 7). Also 2 grand babies - a girl and and a boy.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Penn State. I work at a major food manufacturer as an accountant. I enjoy my work greatly and look forward to a long career there. I also have my own part time business doing taxes during the tax season.
I have my own place and vehicle.
Random interests of mine: My favorite color is green … I am a cat person (definitely not a dog person - can explain later) … My favorite music is country (I will listen to just about any other type of music as long as I can understand the words) ... I love to line dance. I enjoy concerts and the drive-ins. I don’t really have a favorite kind of movie. Horror movies today seem to be more about gore and grossing out instead of terrifying. My favorite movie of all time is “Gone with the Wind”. Something about that movie brings the romantic out of me… I enjoy watching a variety of TV shows (True Blood, Under the Dome, Grey’s Anatomy, Mistresses, Scandal, Castle, Revolution) … I enjoy reading to wind down. As you can probably guess, my favorite is “Gone with the Wind”. I enjoy playing Wii with the kids and the company of my friends. I am not the biggest fan of watching sports, but if it is something that interests the person I am with, I enjoy doing that also. I bowl, roller-skate and white water rafting. Just tried parasailing too; what a great time! I prefer swimming in a pool but will swim in the local lakes around. Amusement parks are a big plus with me; the bigger and faster the roller coaster, the better.
My personality traits are something I asked some of my friends to help me with. I wanted to make sure they were accurate and not what I wished them to be. The descriptions they used were: Motivated, passionate, stubborn, fun, mature (most times), intelligent, honest, trustworthy, open-minded, reliable, organized, patient, kind, considerate, understanding, courteous, responsible, compatible, loyal, enthusiastic, hard headed, opinionated, independent, strong, romantic, nurturing, ethical, ambitious, capable, fair and a realist.
What am I looking for in a man? First and foremost NO DRUGS or heavy drinking! Occasional drinking and a smoker are ok. If you need a six pack after working, then move on. While I like to have fun and go out, I am by no stretch of the imagination a big partier. You shouldn’t be either.
I don’t mind someone being a little over weight. After all, I could stand to lose a little weight myself. I am not interested in someone obese though. I really like longer hair that I can run my fingers through; however I can enjoy the man I am with no matter the hair (or lack of). As far as age goes, this one is a little tough. To me age is just a number. But, I am not looking to raise a boy nor do I want to date someone that looks like my father (though you could be old enough).
I would only be interested in someone that is financially independent. That doesn’t mean you have to have or come from money, it means you take care of yourself and have a place to live and have a vehicle.
Ambitious: I know what I want out of my life, and hope that you would too. I support my man in every way I can so that he can become everything he wants to be (too Army for you?).
Responsible and Mature: While this can go hand in hand with ambitious, it also means you have the capacity to work towards what you want and have to make the choices necessary to achieve them.
You have to like children. I have two that will shortly be leaving the nest; however I do have one more that will be around for 11 years before she would even think about being out on her own. If you are looking to have children, please know that my child bearing years are behind me. While I would love to practice with the man I am with, realize that nothing will come from it other than our mutual satisfaction.
Honest and Trustworthy: This is the single most important part to any relationship with me. I have lived the songs of heartbreak and betrayal and I am not looking to sing another chorus of he done me wrong. Lies count. White lies are still lies in my eyes. I can handle the truth. I may not like it, but I can handle straight talk. I am not the jealous type and expect the man I am with to be secure enough to know I am not looking elsewhere. I don’t expect you to not look at another woman. I do expect you to realize who you would be going home with at the end of the night.
I guess that pretty much wraps it up. You have a taste of what I am like and how others see me. You know what I expect from someone and I hope to hear from someone to see what they expect out of a relationship from me. Communication is the biggest key. If you are still interested after reading all of this, please contact me. I don’t bite … hard … and not unless asked to. :)
