I was due to marry a very sweet attorney in Pennsylvania. A week before my birthday last year, he died in his sleep from a heart attack. He was 49. So after some grieving time, I decided to come back to POF.
Looking to get to know someone with similar interests and personality which is: DEBT-FREE, DISEASE-FREE, illness-free, baggage free (kids are ok if there is no momma drama (such as she passed away) and they are not overly consuming of our personal time. This is very important to me as I am not looking to bring other children into my life. And if you have adult kids, I'm not into the whole grandparent role. I have two young kids of my own and that's more than enough). Please act like a classy gentleman and have a take charge personality. (No wimpy momma's boys). Please have a self-sufficient paying job. A college degree is preferred but a self-made man is also welcomed. But in any case, you just gotta know how to SPELL!!!!! A self-sufficient job doesn't include working at Wal-Mart. If you're blue collar, you should be the owner of the business...and you still better know how to spell. IF YOU ARE HERE JUST LOOKING FOR A BOOTY CALL, PASS ME BY.
Be close in age to me. Race, religion, national heritage not overly important..unless it is to you. I'm of European decent: German, Czech, Italian, and Irish/Scottish. Not very religious but celebrate Christian holidays. I have no siblings. Father died in 2009.
My life is all about writing, illustrating, and publishing. I'm a school art teacher.
I'm even-tempered,caring, funny when I feel like it, and likes to dress up for my man and treat him like the king of his castle. In return, I expect to be the center of his attention. I'm a bit insensitive and VERY demanding of your attention. I also always want to get my way. I'm not one for compromise.
I have 2 kids, (boy 12, Girl 10) of my own. Their father hasn't been involved in their lives in years. That was his choice which left me to sacrifice the past decade of my life to them.
It's now time for ME to live and enjoy.
I have one dog and 8 cats.
Don't get smart about my cats. You don't like cats, that's fine. But I do...and so does my dog.
Listening to country music is a deal-breaker.
A bigger deal breaker are ANIMAL HUNTERS!!!!
ANOTHER DEAL BREAKER IS MOTORCYCLES. NOT INTERESTED TO RIDE.
I sincerely wish everyone the best luck. I hope everyone finds the perfect girl.
Oh..I don't enjoy traveling, eating out, water sports, spectator sports, music concerts, bicycling, hiking, motorcycles, or any other type of nonsense.
I only like what I like. Nothing more: My books, my artwork, the beach, museums, the zoo, nightclubs, and sometimes antique/thrift store shopping. Don't try to convince me otherwise.
Enjoy life. It's short.
I like museums. I like animals. I like animals in museums. I think they call that a zoo. Ok, so, we will go to the zoo....
If it's an evening date, which I prefer, we'll go dancing at a club. if you won't dance, keep searching. Oh, and I'll be posting our pictures together on facebook. So you better be game.
