A little about me...
I am amazed at the total indifference "possible matches" have when viewing a profile....Don't you guys actually READ what a woman has to say, BEFORE sending off "Flirts", e-MAILS, AND CHAT REQUESTS?? THIS SITE IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE MORE MATURE ...THOSE WHO ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR...
IT IS TOO TIME-CONSUMING TO SEND REPLIES TO ANYONE WHO ISN'T LOOKING FOR A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP, OR MORE....IF YOU LIST EVERY POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP GOAL, or THE VERY THINGS I AVOID,I KNOW I AM NOT A MATCH FOR YOU!!SAME GOES FOR NO PHOTO,OR INCOMPLETE/BLANK PROFILES ..
IF YOU CAN'T EVEN TAKE THE TIME TO READ A PROFILE, DON'T EXPECT A REPLY FROM ME..
.I am a woman who is physically, emotionally, and spiritually balanced.I also admit to being smart, sensual, and a bit sassy, with a usually happy disposition.. Laughter is the best medicine , and I try and have several doses daily...My emotional baggage is minimal, and I prefer the same from a potential partner.. .My children are mostly grown,, with youngest in his 3rd year of college...I now have the time , as well as the desire to start a new chapter in my life, .and hope to find a man who mirrors my" likes" and "dislikes", and will be looking just for me..
About the one I'm looking for...
It takes a special man to capture my interest, as well as keep it. Personality and INTELLIGENCE are more important to me than physical characteristics. I am drawn to men who are smart,confident, accomplished, yet humble about their achievements... Active within their community, enjoy being with family,have a romantic nature, are the first to laugh at themselves when they do dumb things,, but would never do so to others, .A man who enjoys holding hands, dancing under the stars, and has no problem with public displays of affection....
.A gym rat, hunter, serial bowler, or avid NASCAR OR MOTORCYCLE enthusiast, would Not be compatible with me... I would like to find a man who is past the age of needing "arm candy", and is looking to have a long-term, monogamous relationship with a woman who can be his friend, lover, and LIFE companion, .. A man who enjoys a woman of many facets, and is open to having a romantic, loving , evolving relationship...
Someone willing to take the ups and downs of everyday life, and still stay on the ride, without getting nauseous.... A man who can tell when I enter the room without even turning around, and when he does, we share a secret smile that says "i am so glad we are together."
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy most music except for heavy metal and opera..I am starting to get back into going to movies, and enjoy the comedic , historical, and some new age/science fiction ones ...If I can have my popcorn (extra butter) and cherry iccee, I am game!
I also have gotten into sports a wee bit..I don't know all the rules and signals, but can handle a game now and then of basketball, baseball, or football, just as long as the temp.is above 36degrees(lol)...
A great relationship starts with eye contact, and a smile...then is built on mutually falling into "like", with a bit of old Tyme romance thrown in to stir it up a bit, and a willingness to accept a persons' weaknesses and strengths , and still feel the "butterflies" in the pit of your stomach.It's like being a teenager again, but having the adult skills to make it work out,....
I have no interest in serial dating,or one nite stands..
If you don't believe in LOVE, and that it can last forever,we are not on the same road of discovery..
I am looking for a long-term relationship,with no expiration date (lol)..... I SERIOUSLY ADVISE YOU TO RE-READ MY PROFILE, AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE A POSSIBLE MATCH...OTHERWISE WE WILL BOTH BE WASTING TIME BETTER SPENT ON A REAL ONE..

My Top Interests:
I have been into cooking as long as I can remember. My grandmother, and mother were amazing teachers. Now I get to create wonderful memories with family and friends. Nothing better than to share a meal with those you love...unless it is cheesecake for dessert(lol)..
Family and Friends
Family and friends are an integral part of a happy Life. They share the ups and downs, the good and the bad. They cheer you on, and cheer you up.. They can frustrate ,as well as amaze you with their ideas, love, and encouragement.. They can be your best advice, as well as your voice of reason, even when you want to tune them out.... My family and friends have made my worst moments bearable, and my best moments vividly memorable.. I wouldn't be the person I am without them...
I have not spent much time up to now traveling anywhere too far from home.. Time gets away from you when you are busy with raising a family....
Now with my youngest off to college, I want to explore the world around me...Would be even nicer with a compatible companion......
