I'm told I sparkle . . . I am an energetic, creative, confident woman.
My guy is . . . strong (character and morals, physical strength would be nice too), confident and independent. You're active, adventurous, family oriented. I won't NEED you in my life, but when I find you I will WANT you in my life; to play, explore, share the many joys, and buffer the sorrows. When we find each other we'll be so much better, happier, life will be sweeter, our bed warmer; we will create our own "happily ever after".
My life has been and will continue to be an adventure filled with exciting, fulfilling work (video production/broadcast-cable TV/wine industry/and now a venture into the music industry), travel (near and far), friends and family. I am a proud parent of four young adults, but if we’re parents aren’t we all proud? To know US is to love THEM! I am pleased to serve as a "sometimes" foster parent and am working to create a foundation to support emancipated foster youths so they don't end up "back in the system".
I'm financially fit, self-sufficient, community service oriented, loyal, a carnivore (meat is a vegetable, yes?) and enjoy adult beverages socially. I am active and fit - and you are too!
I'm grateful . . . I come from "good stock" . . . my folks were married nearly 61 years, I have 6 sibs: 3 brothers and 3 sisters (still here but scattered about), I lived in 6 states (OH, MA, WI, CT, CO, CA) traveled to most the others. I've also lived in Canada and hold a current passport. Travel is fun: camping to resorts and everything in between. I have many diverse interests and really enjoy trying and learning new things (sorry, won't bungee jump or sky dive, I do want to age gracefully!). I am comfortable in any costume: hiking boots to heels. Uh-hem . . . Heels put me over 6 ft!
I'm interested in finding someone to build a future with and dream of growing old with someone I deeply and passionately love. We will start with sparks and fire, your chest will be a safe place for me to rest my head, and as the years pass (so many good years ahead), as our hair melts from gray to white and our backs begin to bow I will still want you by my side, tenderly tracing the lines of your face as the lines deepen, fingering the veins on your hands, patting your bum as we pass in the kitchen, holding your face as we kiss, like my parents did each day and then, if I fall you will be there to catch me, if you fall and I can't catch you, I will help lower you to the floor, fetch you a pillow and a blanket to keep you cozy while we wait for assistance - because I would want to grow so very-very old with you.
I'm not at all shy but I am CHOOSING NOT to take the initiative here. I am a VERY STRONG woman - and I need a VERY STRONG, CREATIVE, HAPPY, CERTAIN, GOOD man to match my character. If you can't take the initiative here, we simply are not a match. If you are interested or want to meet-WRITE TO ME! Notes WILL get answered. I WILL NOT write first, nor will I respond to being made a favorite, or to those "Meet Me's". Besides - it's a whole lot more romantic if YOU extend a hand in greeting - so take the initiative, take the lead . . . let's see it we are meant to dance through life together.
I DO read your profiles, not just what you write about yourself, I'm interested/curious about screen names, headlines, choices, who you hope to find, can you spell? I'm interested in everything! And I wonder . . . do any of us know who we're really looking for?
I AM 56, a bit over 5'10", weigh in at 150 lbs. All pics are current. My hair isn't dyed, no grey - yet. I use some makeup, but not all the time, I wear glasses and/or contacts - what you see IS what you get. I'm not at all into astrology but in reading the characteristics of Libras many of the descriptors are "spot-on" though I'm NOT gullible, careless/frivolous with money or lazy in my work. If you want a sense of my general character, read about Libras! I am joyful, I can be silly (much to my kids dismay-but I see me in them), I laugh loudly and often.
I ask for you to be honest about EVERYTHING! Be true to your age, have recent photos, make sure "your house is in order", be financially fit. Honesty, integrity, and good communication are essential. We can’t get started on the wrong foot now, can we? Real People Aren't Perfect! We are all works in progress. What's important is our desire to learn and continually improve - finding someone I'd want to be even better for, I'd like that, I'd like that a lot!
Let's Share Our Dreams ~ Build A Dream ~ Make A Difference Together
Not date, “first meet”. After all - this is just an electronic introduction!
Coffee/tea, lunch, maybe toss a baseball/softball around, take a walk, even sit on a park bench and talk . . . . no big expectations, after all - we just want to see if there's a "connection". Let's meet some place convenient for both of us; keep it simple, easy, casual. We'll know soon enough if we'd like to spend more time together.
This I know . . . I'm NOT interested IF you've had a history of drug or alcohol abuse, have loads of tats & piercings, hair longer than mine, are unfit/heavy, a couch potato, financially unstable, live far outside the Bay Area, have teeny-tiny children, are my age looking to date a 20-30 something, are a survivor of multiple divorces, or are a serial dater - I'm here looking for ONE very-very special guy. As a renaissance woman perhaps I'm looking for a renaissance man . . .
