I love living, working, and playing in Austin. I'm very fortunate that I love the work I've chosen, and I truly enjoy interacting with my colleagues and people, in general. I'm very easy to get along with, but I'm no pushover. I live in a state of gratitude because I count my blessings rather than focusing on what may not be going the way I want. I'm very optimistic about life recognizing that things could be so much worse. I'm looking for a man who refuses to allow the cares of life to get him down. And because many of you have inquired, yes, I will date men of any ethnicity; your heart is more important to me than the color of your skin.
One of my favorite quotes is as follows: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath way."
I love sunrises, sunsets, full moons and the night sky in general.
I'm not possessive, and I'm not interested in anyone who suffers from this affliction.
I find that music soothes my soul. I enjoy a wide variety--R & B, country, easy-listening--but no Rap.
I've been divorced a long time, and I'm ready to find that one man "who takes my breath away." Are you the one?
***PLEASE NOTE: I only respond to profiles with photos, if I'm interested. Therefore, if you want to view my photos and contact me, please have the common courtesy to have photos posted of yourself. Afterall, you're contacting me because you can see what I look like and, apparently, you like what you see. Not posting a photo of yourself, as far as I am concerned, is reason to suspect that you have something to hide, i.e., you're either married, in a committed relationship or you're not proud of your appearance. In which case, I'm not interested!!!
I really do try to take care of myself, so if you don't, please don't contact me.
***IN AN EFFORT OF FULL DISCLOSURE, MY AGE IN LISTED INCORRECTLY, BUT THE SYSTEM WON'T ALLOW IT TO BE CHANGED. I AM 56-YRS OLD.***
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My ideal first date would be to go somewhere we could sit and talk and get to know each other. Chemistry is a must, so let's grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and see if we click.
