Hi, I am Kathy. please check out my "parenthesis" below..... my edit to my my profile.....
I am divorced after 33 yrs of marriage. I understand commitment but I am all new to this dating world and it has been interesting to say the least. I got married when I was just 18 and it was a good solid marriage but we grew apart. I am the mother of 2 young married woman and the grandmother of 3. ok, modification here..... Divorced now over one year, have a healthy relationship with ex, but he's since remarried and all is well, my kids get it, past the drama
I used to train horses and instruct, hunters and jumpers mainly. I was pretty talented with tough trains. Natural horsemanship was my style and studied under many different clinicians. My motto is a horse is a horse but please don't try to make a basketball player into a ballerina! Too many people try to do this and its painful to see these poor horses trying so hard to please when they physically are incapable. People then resort to unimaginable lengths/borderline cruelty to get to it. People are the ones that need training. Horses speak a different language of prey and humans predator. They are not big dogs! Lol. Ok. Off soapbox! Used to really be arrogant about owners of pleasure horses that are just ignorant in their knowledge, I know their heart is in the right place!!
Not looking for one night stands or young men! (or men that are not really working on their divorce.... I will date separated, been there done that, but need to know ones not playing both sides of the fence) Not my style. I admire intelligence, morals, and the importance of family in a mans life. Just looking for a good person to forge a friendship with and see where it goes from there. I am a sensual being and no prude but expect respect from a gentleman. I like to have fun and try to have as little drama in my life as possible. Don't we all?
I love traveling, going to concerts, sporting events, movies, etc. Football is my favorite but like all sports. There isn't too much I wouldn't try or don't mind watching others enjoy themselves if I chicken out! Lol
I am eclectic in my musical tastes and surprise some on knowing the modern songs. I go to karaoke sometimes because it is fun and pushes me out of my comfort zone, I like the rush. I also like the rush of amusement park rides, or the back of a motorcycle and will learn one day to ride one myself! I like target shooting. Want to try zip lining, I have played the piano and have a bass guitar and acoustic staring at me to actually learn how to make it sing.....anybody want to give me lessons out there? Lol
I love the water, had jet skis when my girls were teens, enjoy fishing, boating, body surfing (scoop up that sand in my bathing suit). I've snorkeled many times but only SCUBA once. I love the outdoors but also love quiet nights watching a show and snuggling. I like to cook but not just for myself. I like making people happy by catering to them.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's go! What do you want to do? A meet and greet over coffee or a drink is fine also.
I like to do so many things and open to trying something new. This has to be for both of us to enjoy. I am a good listener so tell me your story. I want to hear all about it. What are your interests, goals and journey through life? We all have history that makes us who we are.
