A little about me...
Reading, writing, socializing, poker, going to movies and plays, would love to have someone to go dancing with, learn to kayak with, and go target shooting
About the one I'm looking for...
I had a great husband. I hope to find someone great. I would like a reasonable man who would like a reasonable real woman, and not some guy who is holding out for perfection. I would like a hugger and a kisser, someone who is happy to do his share of errand running, who isn't afraid of the grocery store, and who truly enjoys cooking. My dad was a great cook, and it is such a nurturing thing to do. I would like someone with a gentle temperament who has a great sense of humor. So far, I have gone out with seven people from dating websites. A couple have turned out to be some version of nuts...so, if you are nuts, please pass on by. (The sad thing is, if you are nuts, you don't know it, now do you? Bless your heart.)
, I am discovering that many men consider these dates to be shortcuts to immediate "intimacy". If you are thinking that is what women are looking for right off the bat, you are so wrong and misguided. Some women may be, but good women are not. I would rather have no dates at all until the one decent one comes along!
Also, I am finding out that men who don't post photos are to be avoided. If you don't have a photo posted, please DO NOT contact me! Not interested!
I'd just like to add...

These have been the toughest three years of my life. The silver lining is that I have lost 90 pounds, and am more than halfway to where I'd like to be. I work out like a fiend and I eat right, so I will get there. If you don't want to know me now, you won't get to know me then (and sad on you!).
Yep, I have to stand by this. I am a pretty woman. When I get to my goal, I will be exceptional. So...get to know me now!

My Top Interests:
I love going to plays. I am fortunate to live in Winchester because of the wonderful Shenandoah U. stage productions, and the Kennedy Center being a relatively short drive away. Love movies, museums, music, and I would love to dance! (Most men don't want to go dancing....what a shame, really.)
Nature and Outdoors
I think the world is beautiful. God gave us so much beauty to make us happy. I like walking outside, should be able to hike given the intensity of my workouts. I love the water and would like to kayak (the on-top of the boat kind). I don't want to do that alone, though...
Everything. We have an Alamo Drafthouse, and there is nothing quite like an Abita Purple Haze with an action flick and a good companion. I am an atypical girl...I will watch the chick flicks, but love action, thrillers, and war movies. Guns of Navaronne and The Longest Day are right up there with Gone With the Wind in my book!
