Taking a break from "the search" through the holidays.
Maybe I'll try again in the spring.
Tall (5'10"), very average-looking woman. Naturally silver hair, lots of curves (I'm a plus-sized woman at this time, so please note that), green eyes.
The "local" feature here seems to have gone haywire, so if I viewed your profile and you're nowhere nearby, I apologize. For clarity, I live where PA meets NJ at Route 80 / 46.
I am professionally employed (with the long commute to NJ that goes with it). No children and no pets right now; I lost my friend of 12 years - my German shepherd - in April. I miss the big dope.
I'm loyal, kind-hearted and romantic. I'm not a push-over; I'm originally from the south and was raised by a Southern belle (the definition of which is "a Sherman tank disguised as a powder puff"). This means that while I write prompt thank-you notes and can fold dinner napkins into swans, I am also strong and can fend for myself. I would just rather have someone to fend •with•.
(I •really• miss having someone to cook for)
I enjoy a lot of things - I hate laundry lists, but my interests include:
- vintage anything (films, books, fashion, architecture, music)
- the water (Florida-born; I lived there until I was 34)
- live music
- outdoor festivals
- flea markets/antique stores/old book shops
- baseball (not a fanatic, but I honestly enjoy attending games)
- road trips
You're welcome to contact me if you're a nice guy who has read a book, seen a concert, watched fireflies in the yard, thought for himself, or kissed his dog on the nose recently. I really don't have a "type" of man to whom I'm attracted - let's start with funny, kind and self-aware and work from there.
I have no children, but I think it would be lovely if you do.
I don't often send the first message - I'm inherently shy (at least at first), and it seems that people tend to come and go here - they always seem to be "looking for the next best thing".
If I mark you as a "favorite", it means I liked what you had to share on your profile, and that if you were of a mind to do so, it would be nice to hear from you. :)
I have room in my life for someone - I'm not sure who that will be or what their contribution to my life will be, so I guess I'm rolling the dice just like you are.
I'd like to matter to someone, and more importantly - find someone who matters to me.
The first meeting isn't a "date". Breakfast at a diner on a Saturday or Sunday AM. Low key, and pancakes make everybody smile, right?
Save the big guns for later.
Or if you (hopefully) have a dog, maybe meet at a dog park. I miss my dog and I'd love to meet yours.
