I am a happy person who knows that life is so much sweeter when shared. I enjoy laughter and having people around me who can give me back the sarcasm that I give them! I don't need to drink to have fun, but occasionally it's ok. I truly enjoy cooking a good meal and sharing it. My hobbies are many and plentiful, because I have a voracious curiosity and imagination. I do not do can't. That isn't an option. I like reading, and sharing a good book with my guy. I am a pretty good woodworker, with plenty more to learn. I enjoy searching for antiques, and repurposing them into something unique. I was born to paint! Anything and everything! I am a crocheter, and I must have my hands busy. I enjoy anything about taking care of my house and yard, and am not afraid to tackle home improvement projects. I am a very loving person, and my dogs and cats are my kids and my best friends.Anyone I'm involved with would have to be an animal lover. I am somewhat of a homebody, but I love a meal out and a movie.Wandering around a Farmer's Market. A road trip to a flea market? A day spent exploring the many great antique and second hands in Cedar Rapids, and my house reflects that. I love anything well used or well loved! I am not into motorcycles much, been there done that. I enjoy playing cards and board games. And a good jigsaw puzzle once in awhile. I like fishing and doing things outdoors, but something on the grill with a cold beer, after an afternoon spent playing pool volleyball with friends is my favorite day! I really enjoy a very laidback and lazy Sunday occasionally. Football,cuddling on the couch, maybe reading. I prefer to listen to older music, Eagles, Grass Roots, Neil Diamond, Springsteen, Old classic country.
I am a jeans and t shirt type of woman, so if you are into high maintenance keep looking. I like to dress nice as much as the next woman, but am NOT a dress and heels type. I am who I am and I like who I am. Life has molded who I am. If that doesn't suit you, move on.I won't try to change who you are either. I don't do that.
I prefer guys who live fairly near, I do not want long distance friends.Please do not waste my time and yours if all you want is talk. Been there, done that! Too many have just wasted my time! I want to meet and get to know you, not talk dirty.
I am very much a homebody. I am not a person who needs to go, go, go! And spend money to prove I am somebody I'm not! I have been accused of being glued to my home, but I just truly enjoy home time.
I WILL NOT reply to private email accounts, nor will I give you mine. So don't waste my time asking.
I am NOT looking for someone to pay my way, nor I to pay yours. I want a man who is honest. Liars and bums , don't bother! I want someone to share a love and a life. I want to come first, and put you first for me. Not behind your phone, or drinking buddies.Been there, done that.
I am not an upgraded member, nor will I be, so send me a message!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I prefer to meet people for the first time for coffee or ice cream, depending on the time of day. If we don't click, we are only out for a short span of time. If we do, we can move on to breakfast, or supper. I am the kind of person who can usually tell how I feel fairly quickly. If things go well, there is plenty of time for romance later.
