About Me....I Grew up in Cocoa, FLa, I love the ocean and just about everything you can do ON or IN it! I became a widow at a very young age and have raised sons I adore. I am blessed with an amazing family and truly awesome friends. Laughter flows abundently in my life and I tend to AVOID DRAMA. I am more spiritual then religious. A woman who feels deeply and loves fiercely. I am honest and sincere and value those qualities in others. I am passionate about life and the special people in mine. Friends describe me as "playful, fun loving, and generous....Goofy with a bit of a free spirit." I can be stubborn at times but I have trouble staying mad if someone makes me laugh.
I enjoy the simple things....a picnic on a blanket....frisbee at the park....snuggling on the couch with a glass of wine and a movie. I am ready for a monogamous meaningful relationship with a man who thinks confidence is SEXY and who appreciates intelligence and a strong wit :), Someone who is looking to share and experience new things together. A man who is physically affectionate, playful, comfortable with PDA and is simply that.... a MAN. Someone who can look in the mirror every day and be proud of who he is. Although I am looking for a deep connection, I want to keep dependency in check in a relationship so that the two of us can maintain our identities as individuals. I love hanging out with friends, but also enjoy some "me" time now and then and respect someone else's need for the same.
Life is GREAT! :),,,,,But could be even more amazing with YOU IN IT!!!
A fun first date for me would be trying something new together, this type of date puts us on equal footing...allows us to laugh at ourselves and each other ..... and creates memories to look back on in a relationship or just a fun friendship :)))
