Time to update this profile.
Let me just say first that this is quite the site.Been here too long but am not into the bar scene so what are the alternatives here. Dont believe I'm going to stumble into my future partner in life at the local grocery counter, (although I did meet a nice looking golfer over at the meat counter at Stater Brothers on 4th of July, browsing the porterhouse steaks.)A fellow carnivore,in California no less. How refreshing! Anyway back to reality.
Originally from Brooklyn, New York and relocated to California to enjoy all the aspects of what this state has to offer. I consider myself an attractive, intelligent, hard working woman who aspires to enjoy every aspect of her life. Work hard. play hard, no drama. A good balance is the key! I enjoy the outdoors, golf, beaches, the arts, small music venues, the river, mountains in the winter. I've traveled all over the US and Canada throughout the years and wouldn't trade those memories for anything. I have an outgoing personality , quite outspoken - must be the New Yorker in me.
I have been on this site on and off and have made some nice friends here, but no match thus far . Don't know if if its my expectations or the expectations of those on this site. I am not the type if woman that will settle for less than what I want or expect out of life or in a partner. I'm not into the game of one liners, endless texting or mindless conversation. If I feel we might have something in common, I might text you. If I'm not interested in a communication, I don't mean to be rude but I won't text back. I don't have the time or energy. Pardon me for being so blunt but I am not into the endless bullish-t that is so prevalent here. If that offends some, sorry but I'm sure you've used that term in a sentence before. Doesn't make me classless, just honest.
According to many comments on this site, I do have my faults. ( Evidently they are not conducive to the California lifestyle and they are as follows:
1) I smoke and don't aspire to quit. My lungs say they would rebel.
2) I eat meat. That's murder I'm told by a number of people. But it is flame broiled, barbequed, tasty, delicious murder. I tried to explain that the salad they had for lunch gave up its life for them but they didn't see my point of view.
3) I don't go to the gym or workout 5 days a week. ( Then again, I don't see them enjoying the sunshine while I'm trying to learn to surf, or out on the golf course when I'm playing 18 holes or in freefall when I'm making a few skydives with friends. I'll enjoy the later, thank you.
4) I am not a "Cougar". Although I will date someone younger than myself, I refuse to correspond or date anyone who is a) the equivelant to any of my sons age as the only thing we might have in common is that I am as old as your mother or b) I have shoes in my closet as old as you.
By now I'm sure you have figured out that I do enjoy a sense of humor.( A must have for any potential suitors.)
As I have said in my profile in the past, I am looking for someone to compliment my life, not complicate it. I have many other interests to include the arts, travel, good music, good food and spending time with friends and family. I also like to give back to my community and to support our veterans through my participation in our local American Legion. Have been spending a lot of my time off traveling the back roads and the PCH enjoying the scenery! Life is good! Now if I could only figure out how to strap my golf clubs on the damn thing I'd be all set! Lol.
In all serious though, I would enjoy finding a partner in life to share family, friends and what's left in this life to enjoy. Life is much more fun when shared.
P.S. I am not into endless text messages, so impersonal. And quite frankly, I don't have the time to be sitting around tapping out messages! Not trying to be rude but I still have a fondness for the spoken word.
P.S.S. any rude or sexually explicit comments will automatically be deleted. I have no tolerance for ignorance or bad manners.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Be more imaginative than a cup of coffee. Maybe a nice bottle a wine while watching hangliders and paragliders launch off the Ortegas! Maybe a motorcycle ride. If you have one fine, if not you can chase me down in your car while I ride mine! Lol!
