I have been in northern cal since feb 2012 . i moved from so cal , santa monica and am still adjusting. I am looking for a relationship but would also be happy to meet quality people and make new friends if romance is not in the cards.
I am a professional woman with a great family and job. I am caring and compasionate and a good Person. Not jaded, open with my feelings and ready to share my life with someone if I find that right person.
Life is full of challenges and i have certainly had mine. What does not brake you makes you stronger. I am blessed in so many ways and am grateful for it every day. Random things about me: I like tomatoes, balloons, thrift stores, bargains, and public display of affection. I I have an unusual name, and a slight accent. I buy used books on Amazon. People say I look much younger than my age. I am probably too hard on myself so I don't do well with people who are overtly critical of others. I can be deep and philosophical. But equally goofy and playful.
I have purpose in my life and it sustains me through everything. I have a passport and have been to multiple countries.
Update: I think many selfies are creepy specially if you are shirtless while holding a phone in a bathroom.. Now I know you have friends! Call them and have them take a photo of you! :)
Second update: I dislike overgrown facial hair, excessive tattoos , stained shirts, splitting bills and groping on dates. I prefer clean shaven, clean shirts,no tatoos and leaving your octopus hands at home! And if asked I would happily pay the entire bill for our date, but you will never see me again. I don't need free meals.I do need chivalry. :)
i think early afternoon drinks would be nice. Meeting to say hello and to see if there is any connection as friends or otherwise. Maybe if the conversation is flowing, we can have dinner :) Nothing worst than having to sit through a date when you don't feel you have anything in common with the person in any shape or form. Ugh!
You : no older than 55, educated, employed, relationship minded, not selfish and know what you want . Tall is a plus :)
