Please read it all. I know it's long but it will give you very clear picture of me. No masks or fluff.
Ok time for some editing. My most current picture is the one were I'm with my son and parents this Christmas .I am told I look 50 not 63 I go dancing ( I love it), gardening and just bought a bike to go riding. I have a pool and swim daily weather permitting i love the outdoors and plan to camp at least once per month. Can't wait to get Into the water.
I am an old fashion girl and I believe in being a woman. I know times have changed but I am a lady. I don't want a man to rule me or I to rule him but want to walk by his side. Preferably on his arm.
I Love to sing, I love to dance whether ballroom, country,salsa or whatever it may be. I love camping and fishing and spend several weeks a year fishing and camping alone and would love to find someone other than my grown children or grandchildren to come. I love cooking bbqing and entertaining and have a great home to do so in. Family is important!! Though i grew up in the Bay Area I am a Country girl at heart. Maybe it's my southern roots.
I am a retired social worker, so I am a totally giving person. I have a deep since of faith and it means a lot to me. I spent over 30 years in social work which left me unable to travel much for various reasons so I would love to do would love to travel now. I am a conservative politically and religously. I try to live the best life I can. I make mistakes but hopefully not as many as when I was young and I believe I've learned and grown from them.
I am extremely loyal and once I have decided to pursue a relationship I am faithfull. I love to have fun but I live by the rules so don't ask me to break the law or do anything I believe to be morally incorrect.
I find I don't enjoy car races,so Nascar is a no, but do love to watch a good football or basketball game. I usually only watch the big ones but will curl up and take a nap while you watch if that's cool.
My friends tell me I'm beautiful , men tell me have sex appeal, however I am getting older so it will be in the eye of the beholder!.
If you have children I will embrace them as mine and I expect the same. I believe we all have some baggage and I will help you unpack yours if you do the same for me. Those who don't see theirs are usually blinded by their own justifications, I don't know anyone who doesn't make mistakes. I am your ultimate honest person. I can't even perform a joke because I give it away.
They say it takes 2 years to really know someone, but I believe you will find me to be almost too honest. I don't hide behind a mask, what you see is what you get.
I am somewhat cultured and love old movies as well as plays. A trip to Oregon to the Shakespeare festival is on my bucket list. I love art and am setting up a small shop to try my hand at it. I did some when I was young but had to stop and raise my family. I'm comfortable in jeans drinking a beer or dressed formally drinking wine and love to sit by my pool and drink margaritas or my favorite, champagne. I love old cars, so car shows would be a yes for me.I can play the guitar around a campfire or sing in a chorus of the Messiah. I should also say since many of you seem to have bikes, I love to ride but like men who look good on the bike but can wear a suit as well. I like clean cut. Beards only if neat. Sorry if that is offensive but I know there would be no chemistry without. Don't want to waste anyones time, at this age we have none to waste.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
If I planned it it wouldn't be for coffee it would be wine and cheese at a local park.
My addition. I have found if we don't take time to see someone's soul we don't really see them.
