I am no more unique that you are. There is only one of me & one of you... That makes us both unique. I am down to earth, honest, common country lady (but I clean up pretty darn good). I have a good sense of humor. I can put on jeans & boots & go 4 Wheeling with you & dress in 'after five dress' & make you proud to walk in with me What you see is what you get. I am very independent & self sufficient. I was raised in a Christian home & still practice character traits I learned in Sunday School. I am content with my life, but would sure enjoy laughter & a soul mate to share our likes, dreams, expectations, happy moments & maybe some of our past regrets at some opoint in the relationship. I am a good listener & except the same from you. Family is very important & yours should be also. My main hobby has been keeping my flower beds with color year round, I wanted my place to look like a picture post card....and it did, until past 3-5 yrs, I was tied up with my aging mother (98) who I lost December 2012. I enjoy most music except heavy metal or rap (which to me is just noise). Love live music & concerts, movies, stage performances. I enjoy traveling & seeing new places & things Love the mountains &
the beech. My 2 children say I am their best friend & my 3 grand children think I am a hoot.... Doesn't get much better than that.
I have 2 grown children-son lives here & Daughter in DFW area. I appreciate hard work & honesty. My iPad & Fox News (obvious a conservative) keeps me at home a lot. I have previously volunteered with CASA which was working with Foster children, very rewarding work. Love helping friends & relatives. I like most outside fun things including 4 wheelers, not too good, turned one over last year in water & mud. But after all .. we were in East Texas at a known Mud Track!!! I enjoy flea markets & estate sales, day trips, sunsets, reading, movies, shopping & morning coffee!
At our age, surly every one of us have had wonderful happy times & probably years, and more than likely we have all experienced some heartache. I have both & I travel light-no extra baggage-won't work well in a relationship. My past & present is a open book to anyone who is interested. I detest liars, cheaters, users & arrogance!
I have a 9yr old, 5lb Yorkie/Maltese girl-Maggie. She is a good companion, but not too much on conversation. She couldn't appreciate a candlelite dinner, glass of wine & soft music.
I am not a fashion hound, but always look nice & dress my age and not like I was in my 20's. My weight & shape is comparable to most ladies my age or better. I am a natural blonde turning a bit gray. I have been divorced 26 yrs with one relationship. I live in the middle of the 4 States Area so dating someone from either Arkarkana, Texas, Lousiana or Okla might be convenient for both of us (and I say might).
I am sure my romantic side is still in there...it just needs a gentleman with a slow, easy, gentle and respectful challenge. I would enjoy a man that can be a real man when necessary but also has a Teddy Bear side. My goal is to fall in love with my best friend/soul mate. My father set such a example of what a mate should be. He was the provider, the protector and the spiritual leader. I am not looking for a daddy, but a man with the same principles & morals my daddy had & taught me. I learned as much from my daddy on how to act like a lady as I did from my mom, and she was for sure a lady. I also know that a Christian lady can still have fun & laughter and enjoy life in the winter season of her life and our seasons are changing....fast.
Since joining this site.....I have kicked the smoking habit.....Yea for me!!!
In a public place suitable with both. Somewhere quite enough to talk, (not to your place for a drink on your deck, as some have done). That is no way for a gentleman to show respect to a lady.
The real dates can follow if the interest & chemistry is there. I do understand also, the chemistry will not always be there, guess that is what this site means... Plenty of fish........or not.
