I am new at this - but am looking for someone who can be a trusted friend, companion, and eventually to have a long-term relationsip with. I have devoted much of my life to raising my children who are now semi-independent. I am educated and intelligent and work hard at my job which is quite serious and demanding, so, ... on the weekends I look for fun, laughter, enjoyment, and relaxation. I have a kind, warm heart, am conscientious and have good integrity. I have not posted my photo for privacy reasons, but can send a picture if I think we have a connection. I am attractive but have not devoted much of my time to keeping myself in shape and have put on a few pounds over the years -- nothing insurmountable -- but if you are a jock and need someone with a Barbie body, then you are not my man. It is important to me that I am with someone who is an intelligent and educated professional as I am but who also has a good sense of humor, and doesn't take themselves too seriously.

please do not contact me if you are already in a relationship -- and by "other", I do not mean 'intimate encounter'
