A little about me...
I'm at the point in my life where I just want to enjoy it. I have great family and friends. My daughters are almost grown and in college. I have wisdom that only comes from experience, but still feel like I'm 35 (sometimes I still act 15 - see picture on Bull!) I know the value of a good companion, but am willing to wait for the right one.
I love to cook/entertain, drink red wine, hike, bike, listen to music and hang out with friends doing just about anything - especially outdoors (unless it's 106 degrees!). I believe staying in shape is very important to a happy life and I work out several times a week.
About the one I'm looking for...
Intelligence and a sense of humor are required. ALMOST everything else is negotiable. In the perfect world, I'd love to meet someone close to my age that doesn't live 50 miles away. A healthy lifestyle and outlook on life is important. Let's face it, at our age, we all have baggage - but it needs to fit in the overhead..
I am honest and realistic, so I will tell you upfront that I will not respond to anyone if:
you don't have a picture posted
are still married
live outsite of the DFW area
or don't send me a "real" email that you actually wrote (just liking my picture or sending a canned message doesn't count)
I'd just like to add...
My twin daughters are away at college, leaving me an "empty nester". The hardest thing about it isn't them leaving.....it's the fact that they are going to OU (I'm a UT graduate)! :-)
I've always had an active social life, but I'm more interested than ever in increasing my network of friends. If I find someone special in the process, that would be a bonus.
