I am a self aware, fun, reasonably intelligent woman. Enjoy the simple things, a good film, spending a day enjoying the woods or ocean, road trips with no particular destination, Giants games, walking (sometimes 18 holes), playing with grand kids, art & wine festivals, dancing, hanging in the city, music at Yoshi's, reading in the park, working out (to stay healthy, not a gym rat) and laughing often...sometimes at myself and life.
Had to laugh today, a man wrote and told me, 'to get off my high horse'...too funny and couldn't be further... I was raised very poor, worked hard, read voraciously and bettered myself so my children would have more (they all surpassed me in education), I'm proud of my small accomplishments; but extremely down to earth, have common sense and prefer a fun, healthy, simple life...I can shoot a descent game of pool and play chess fairly well... hope this paints a more rounded picture.
Like to play and have fun, enjoy quiet times as well. Looking for a physical and emotionally intimate relationship. I am joyful by nature; and yes, I do encounter life's challenging moments...ponder for a moment, find solutions, then go back to enjoying life. I have an outgoing, positive personality, my friends describe me as extremely loyal and fun to be around (they are my friends) ;)
I find writing about myself a touch awkward. If what you read is interesting, no doubt you'll let me know. I prefer learning more about each other talking on the phone. Hearing the voice, inflection, tone...speaks volumes (pun intended). In person, even that much more revealed, and for me the only way to determine compatibility...possibly chemistry.
Favorite destinations...Italy, Jamaica, Alaska, New York, Arizona, Hawaii; ate and drank in quaint places, snorkeling, game at Yankee stadium, spring training, opera in a coliseum and hanging out with locals...would love see to more of the states, definitely northern east coast in the fall.
Have a great relationship with my 3 exceptional, self sustaining adult children and 3 gorgeous grandchildren...family is important to me. We all have busy lives, love seeing them when our schedules coincide.
Would like a man who understands respect starts from within, non judgemental, enjoys a good film, very affectionate, possesses wit and wisdom, a friend...then lover, who can have a good conversation about most things and doesn't take himself too seriously, posseses a good sense of humor.
Someone who accepts me as I am, and I will reciprocate. Wants a partner to enjoy all life has to offer...sometimes as simple as making a meal together, sharing our day and laughing about it all. Likes some of the same things, and maybe brings a little diversity to the table.
Thinking we all have baggage by now...as long as we don't blame anyone else...learned from it; can't ask for more. Living in the present.
Eclectic taste in music: Sade, Frank, Adele, Billie, Ella, Motown, R&B, classic jazz, 40's, 50's...some current and a little Chopin.
Movies range from; To Kill a Mocking Bird, Heaven, Snatch, North by Northwest, American Hustle, Reservoir Dogs, Princess Bride, film noir, Cohen Bros., Tarantino, Disney...
btw...my pics are current...hope you are as honest.
