I’ve been looking for you a good long while… neither confident I’ll find you, nor willing to give up. Friendship, laughter, communication, trust is the foundation, and if sparks fly, I'm more than interested in exploring the possibilities. I'm strong, feminine, sensitive, and not here to play games or be played.
Age is true. A full life is reflected in my lines, gratitude, positivity, and laughter. I’m happy, healthy, active, involved, fun and funny, living my life with integrity... and a pretty darned good if irreverent sense of humor. I am a lady in public, and the rest of the time is none of your business :~). I am unattached, imperfect, looking for the one who's perfect for me, and vice versa. I like the finer things, but live a simple life. Nothing could make it better except to find the one with whom to share the quiet as well as exciting times.
I’ve made and make mistakes... give my best shot at learning the lessons... often successfully. I’m open, and willing to take a chance in order to find what I’m looking for…
I am confident, although it can occasionally waffle with this online dating stuff... accomplished (and still use those gifts), volunteer and appreciate the opportunities to give back, attend church, sometimes elegant, sometimes tomboy (have jeans, a little black dress, and love both), an avid reader and gardener, enjoy anything in, on or near water, keep a nice home, travel near and occasionally far, love entertaining, socializing, playing pretty bad golf, and sharing the kitchen (“quality over quantity”). I have a deep appreciation for almost all music (and those who are musically inclined), and love to dance no matter where I am. Hang on tight; I'm a little out of practice on that and other things. Love the local summer concerts here in Clayton... great; casual; fun.
I stay abreast of political issues. I like theater (especially musical... think Jersey Boys, Phantom, Les Miserables), and thought provoking movies (i.e. Sideways, Pieces of April, Remains of the Day)… or bad ones that make me laugh til I cry (Bridesmaids). I live a life balanced between social and quiet times, playful and serious. After giving up smoking for ten years (never touched one), I crumbled... an occasional cigarette while gardening is my only vice... well, that, and lying about my vices!! :~))
Nothing means more to me than close friends and family. My two children and their families are mature, responsible, completely independent, warm, and funny as hell. We have great times, much laughter, and remain close.
I’m romantic, affectionate, resilient, independent, financially secure, opinionated and sometimes intense. I know that a good relationship takes time, effort, and constant humor and communication. If we're in it together, we'll both be giving 110%.
A good man, you pamper and make me feel special. Even from across the room, you give me a look that melts. You hold me when we fall asleep, and endlessly give me reason to trust and believe in us. You're all man, with a soft and tender side that you never feel the need to hide from me.
