Let me start by saying no picture = no response. You see me- it's only fair. =D
I am a pretty laid back woman looking for a man that would like to share life's journey, and maybe even wander off the beaten path and create a new path.
I have had an empty nest for 2 years now, and am enjoying the ME time, but know that so many things are better shared with someone special. I enjoy going antiquing, to flea markets, junk shops, and just treasure hunting for fun unusal finds. Maybe enjoy a hike along one of the beautiful trails the area offers, and stop for a picnic along the way. I love to go for country drives and enjoy what nature has to offer. I bought a new camera, and would love to get out and photograph nature. Almost ashamed to say having lived in St. Louis most of my life, I haven't visited nearly all the interesting sites we offer. I do love the Zoo, Grants Farm, and Meramec Caverns. I haven't been camping in years - okay, decades - but used to go to Alley Springs when I was a little girl. Not to sound like everyone else on here, but I do like the beach. I lived in Corpus Christi for almost 5 years and had Padre Island at my back door, so I miss the beach and warm sunny days.
What I am looking for in a man is strength, character, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Have to throw in lots of laughs, being silly, and orneryness. A man that is patient, kind, understanding, and affectionate. Maybe a little bit of a risk taker, but not too extreme. A man that likes to get up and go, but also likes to sit back and chill sometimes. Family oriented, and a believer in our Lord above. I am looking for a friend first, that is interested in the possibility of a long term commitment. No long distance relationships, and NO married men. I want a man that knows what he has when he has it, not after it is gone.
I tend to be drawn towards men in the construction industry, and are more of a stocky / muscular build and about 5'8" or taller. Well groomed facial hair is HOT!!!!
I hope that maybe something here has piqued your curiosity enough to contact me. Let's see where this can go. Good luck with your search and with any luck, we will be meeting soon!
