A little about me...
I always write too much, and you'll probably get tired of reading all this. I'm a nice woman looking for a nice man. I'm creative, funny, educated, intelligent (but not intellectual) and honest. I love to laugh and have a good time. I have lots of crazy friends of all ages and occupations. I try to be laid back and easy-going, but i'm a recovering Type A. I've had an unusual career "for a woman" which has given me lots of funny stories to tell, and I can hardly wait to hear yours. I just retired, and I now have the time to learn some new hobbies, including digital photography, artsy-craftsy things and whatever else may crop up. In other words, I'm old enough to retire, but I'm still young at heart, and I have much to see and do before I pack it in. Speaking of packing, by this age, we all have plenty of baggage, but I've been divorced forever, and I hope mine is packed and neatly stowed away. My two daughters are grown and self-supporting professionals.
About the one I'm looking for...
I want a guy with attributes like mine -- honesty, an irreverent sense of humor and intelligence are necessary. He also needs to be strong and know his own mind, although being willing to compromise (and knowing the difference) is nice. I guess I know as much what I don't want as what I do want: No perverts, addicts, crooks, alcoholics, whiners, victims, co-dependents, Mama's boys, controllers, scammers, bigots or right wing nuts. A romantic would be nice. I'd really like someone with a big, happy family, which I've never had. But that's not a requirement. I've already exchanged messages with 3 scammers and one nut on here. I'm hoping to meet one really cool guy. That's all it will take. If you're out there, hurry up and send me a message, because I'm about to give up and cancel my membership.
I'd just like to add...
I love to travel, dance, eat out and do almost anything on the water. I'm not much on roughing it. I'm easily entertained and am quite happy to stay home and watch TV. My politics are moderate to liberal, and I really don't do well with Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter fans. I guess you can say I'm intolerant of intolerance. "Jesus loves me, and everything else is optional" pretty well sums up my religious views. I have friends of all religious persuasions, and one friend calls herself a pagan. I attend a small non-denominational church where we're known for our singin', our eatin' and our huggin', and there's more love in that little church that I've seen anywhere in a long time. I like almost any food but beets and turnips. Picky eaters make me nervous. I don't cook much now, but I think it would be fun to cook with someone who either likes to cook or wants to learn. I have two small rescue dogs who follow me around as if I'm a mother duck, perhaps because they were abandoned before, but they know their place. I need to lose weight and get fit. Those are on my list of things to do. I'm compassionate but not a bleeding heart.
