A little about me...
I am a kind, empathetic, caring woman. Family is very important to me. I have never smoked or taken drugs and do not cuss. I occasionally drink on social occasions. I've had the opportunity to travel a little in the past 1 1/2 years and found that I really enjoy it. I work full time to take care of myself and my cat. I have two grown daughters who are married. Between the two of them I also have five grandbabies (ranging from 1 year to 9 years of age) to dote on. I enjoy reading, watching TV, going to the movies and dining out. I won't be retiring for a while but am looking forward to winding down. I enjoy relaxing and my quiet time, which would be nice with someone at my side. Quiet conversation, enjoying a sunset or fireplace, holding hands, nice walks would be enjoyable,
About the one I'm looking for...
I would prefer to hear from someone in the South Kansas City/Johnson County,KS area. I think it would be difficult to have a long distance relationship and really get to know each other. I have heard from some gentleman on both coasts and been very impressed with their profiles but the distance may be an issue. I don't mind corresponding with interested gentlemen, of course.
I am looking for someone who is caring and compassionate--non-smoker, no drugs or heavy drinking. Someone who cares for family and friends. Someone who is not sarcastic or rude and does not use foul language. Spirituality is important but not it a strict sense. Financially secure is important but not a 'scrooge' and miser. Someone who enjoys travel or sightseeing, even just local sights. I would like someone who is thoughtful--opens doors, occasionally brings flowers or remembers birthdays. I am looking for a man who is intelligent and well educated but who is modest and not a braggart. Gentleness in word and deed is important. Holding hands and snuggling are important.
I'd just like to add...
I am a big beautiful plus-size woman and have been all my life. If size matters to you and you would be embarassed to be seen with me then you are not a match. If you are carrying a lot of baggage and are playing games for your own enjoyment, then you are not a match. If you are a sarcastic nasty foul-mouthed man or if you smoke or drink excessively and are not educated, then you are not a match. If you are not financially secure and don't like sharing with someone you love, then you are not a match. I am seeking gentleness, peace and love in my life. I have worked for many years and been through my own ups and downs.I don't want to have to deal with your issues or baggage. It's time to relax and enjoy life, don't you think???

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
Family has always been important to me. Growing up in a family of eight was challenging but rewarding. I love my girls and their families (I have five grandbabies now). My best friends are my sisters and we usually spend some time together on the weekends.
I enjoy cooking but being single I just don't spend as much time doing it as I would like. It would be much more fun cooking with someone else and enjoying that time together.
I grew up on old TV movies. My sisters and I loved the old Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy musicals and then the other big musicals (Oklahoma, Showboat, Carousel, etc...) Not much of those types of movies anymore.I love science fiction movies, Walking Dead, and all other genre (just no chainsaw massacre-type movies). Love mysteries, thrillers, comic-book hero movies (Ironman, Batman, X-Men). I just enjoy a wide-variety of movies and TV shows.
