*** November 2015 - I deleted most of what I used to have on my profile because I wrote it some years ago when I first created it.
I have met some amazing people on here and also some real bottom feeders, I have had several long term relationships (2 years and 1 year) - but I am truly seeking my happily ever after! I do not like to date - I am a super simple person that can delight in what could be the mundane things like yard work, if I am doing it with my other half!
I was married for 20 years and decided that after 20 years if we couldn't make it work, then it was better to end it then - and remain good friends rather than give it another go and wind up bitter enemies as so many people do. I dislike conflict and confrontation immensely.
When I am all in ... I am ALL in - 110% - I don't keep one foot in and one out just in case something better comes along. I want to make the absolute best of what I have right in front of me, and that is what I hope to find in my other half.
I am very easy going, laid back and like to look at everything seeking out the positive, rather that dwelling on any negative.
Communication is an essential key in life - Please understand the importance of that - Mean what you say and say what you mean!
The last several years has totally confirmed that my life was meant to be shared. I want that other half to come home to and cook dinner with/for, to talk about our days and to fall asleep with, and to wake up and start a new day with. I don't like to date, I want to find my happily ever after.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I am up for anything - a beach day - the batting cages - some good mexican food and margaritas - a dive, karaoke or sports bar - a Lakers or Angels Game -
...or just winging it and seeing where we end up!
Its not always about where you go or what you do - but who you're with!
I am obviously an open book and will tell you anything, I am not the typical OC girl, there is a lot of substance to me, and I have been through a lot the last few years, but it has only made me stronger and helped me see the big picture in life and what is really and truly important - and what is not even on the radar anymore!! I am probably one of the most loyal people you will meet. I hope to find someone that would think and care for me the same way that I do for them... because that is one of my strongest traits.
