"Men always want to be a woman's first love. That is their clumsy vanity. We women have a more subtle instinct about things. What we like is to be a man's last romance." Oscar Wilde
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." Oscar Wilde
I have two children who are the center of my universe. Few things in life make me happier than being in the car with my daughter with the music blasting and the two of us belting out our favorite songs, much to the chagrin of any passenger we might have!!
I'm a court reporter and absolutely love my chosen career. My career has afforded me the best of both worlds; I can be class mom, be there for my children when they get home from school, and yet still bring home the bacon. My career has afforded me the ability to be well versed on many topics. I see tragedy on a daily basis, so it also has taught me to be thankful for the truly important things in life, i.e., health and a loving family.
Although, like everyone, I enjoy the finer things in life; what I'm really looking for are the simple pleasures life has to offer. I want the stolen kisses in the kitchen when nobody is looking, the subtle, tender caress while passing by each other. I want my heart to race when I hear his car pull into the driveway. Am I asking for too much, maybe so, but this time around I'm not settling. I'm not looking for the perfect person, just the person that's perfect for me.

OK. Here is the ONLY negative comment I'm going to make: If you state in your profile that you're looking for a woman (girl) between the ages of 25 and 35 and you are over 50 but have decided to grace me with an exception in my case, please, don't do me the favor. That tells me a lot about your character. I may not have the body I had when I was 25, but ,“Experience tells you what to do; confidence allows you to do it," and these are attributes younger women lack. If you can't appreciate that, we are not a match.
