A little about me...
I have been in my career field for 35 years and seek more balance in my life--more fun, laughter, and romance. I must confess that I am uncomfortable meeting men via a website, yet in person I am socially at ease, as I am outgoing and confident. I like to dance once in a while, spend time on the computer, love to see good movies and dine out, love board games, BBQ with family and friends, family camping trips, and just having fun overall. I am a modern woman with some old fashion ideas (e.g. opening doors for women, respectful deference, romanticism). I enjoy what I do for a living, and am passionate about what I pursue in life (sometimes too serious about it all), and have many interests. Foremost I believe in family, friends, honesty and goodness, some level of spirituality, and service to our community and country (love our military). I like to have purpose in my life; however, all work and no play is not the best way to live.
About the one I'm looking for...
I know what I like but am trying to remain open-minded. I do look younger for my age and see myself with someone in the same ballpark; however, I am open-minded. I like funny, witty, happy, positive, and a thinker. An intellectual conversation, with reason and compassion, yet passionate, is stimulating to me. I am attracted to a man's mind, his personal substance and character. I expect most things in his life to be reasonably stable (not perfect); I don't have time for conquering others--I am a handful for myself as it is. Smile.
I'd just like to add...
I tend to be a home body but love to camp in the summer; I love the mountain air, the sound of the trees in the wind, the sunshine, and cooking in the wild. There's nothing like a Bailey's and Cream on the rocks, playing cards or board games, good music, much laughter with family and friends (or a significant other). I am not an exercise fanatic, I enjoy a glass of wine in social settings, I don't smoke, and generally am healthy-minded. I love cats and I have 2 (at all times). I like to read my morning newspaper for local and world news along with my morning cup of coffee (Starbucks is a luxury). My son and daughter are young adults, both serving their country in the military (I am so proud); I have a large extended family in Redding CA with whom I spend time with for scheduled family events throughout the year--especially our annual camping trip and summer days on Whiskeytown Lake.

My Top Interests:
Watching movies or my favorite shows is one of the few ways I can turn off my mind from work. I do like my big screen TV. :)
Family and Friends
I have a large family in Redding CA and we like to get together and do a lot of outdoor activities. I live 3 hours away from them so it is hard to get up there and enjoy time with them. It is pure luxury.
My family grew up with a lot of games so we like them. Scrabble is our number one game, but Sequence has taken hold in the last few years as a favorite. We all do Scrabble on our cell phones--we are hooked. :)
