I am a Happy, easy-going girl looking for a friendly, intelligent man. My sons are adults, one in law school and one on his own, so I have plenty of free time for myself. I prefer dating someone with older children as well. I am a warm & spontaneous person who enjoys giving & receiving affection. I am honest, & when in a relationship, am completely commited. I like spending time with my significant other doing all kinds of things, or just snuggling on the couch kissing and watching a DVD. I also enjoy some alone time as well. I like the people in my life to know how important they are. I get along well with everyone, & have many good friends. I don't feel the need to "fix "someone, but care about them as they are.
I have a career that stimulates and satisfies me. I work hard and have a job I love.
I like music, especially concerts and musicals, as well as plays. I like to walk, and take my dog to the park or just go to a nice museum or state park. I love to hop in the car & see where the day takes me. Things like festivals, seasonal events, holidays, family get -togethers, bbqs with friends, or just home watching a DVD are all enjoyable to me. I like sports if someone I know is playing or enjoys them. I'm a movie buff & can quote all the good ones. I love reading, & browsing a bookstore is really enjoyable to me. I enjoy being outdoors and like hiking and leisurely biking or just enjoying the weather. I am enjoying more fitness activities, and would love a partner to go with me. I like trying new things & going new places. I am well adjusted and comfortable with myself. When it comes to romance, I am enthusiastic & imaginative. I am interested in dating with the hopes of an eventual long term realtionship. I am surprised at the number of men on here who say they are friendly and happy, yet don't smile in their pictures. I am interested in dating somebody relatively close to me. I have no special list of "must haves", I really think that each person has something of value to offer, however, I find myself attracted to men of my own race. If I favorite you, it's so I can come back to you when I decide what I would like to say.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Coffee, lunch, or a drink would be fine. Going to a little fall festival, museum, etc would be nice too. Just sitting down to talk anywhere pleasant.
