Update, Jan 2014: I have been on here for almost 3 years and have not been on one date!! Seriously, where are all the OC guys my age or a few years younger that ski and don't mind a gal close to their own age, that is very active and young at heart??
Single mom of 4 grown kids.. 2 of them are still at home and are in college.. I have a great career and a nice home.. I love to get out and do just about anything, hiking, biking, horseback riding, movies out or in, travel - weekend getaways or long trips, also hanging at home and BBQ'ing, floating in the pool, or going in the spa, but most of all skiing in the winter..
LOVE the ski/snowboard scene, have a season pass in Big Bear, and try to make a few out of state trips each winter.. I have a cabin in Big Bear so I spend most weekends in the winter up in the mountains. I have a lot of friends (mostly girlfriends) and many I have known since Jr. High.. and although I stay in touch with my friends, most are married or in relationships so they are not available to hang out a lot..
I have been divorced for 20 years and have had a few long term relationships in the years since..but none that went the long haul.. I have now been single for over 3 years and I am ready to find the "perfect match".. notice I did not say "perfect man", as I get it that nobody is perfect..I would love to meet someone that is a good match for me.. and I do feel there has to be some chemistry and or immediate attraction as a start, then only time will tell..
I am at a point where I am ready to date again to meet people, see if we click initially and then see what happens.. I value honesty and integrity and expect the same from my mate..BTW.. I don't "do drugs", but I am what you call 420 friendly..
depends if it is a DATE or a first meeting.. for first meetings, coffee is best.. then if either party is not feeling it, it is not too awkward to be polite but cut it short..as for a real DATE after it has already been established that both parties are mutually attracted and looking forward to spending time together.. then I'm up for just about anything ..depend on time of day, etc. Lunch or Dinner, followed by something where we can get to know each other better..
