A little about me...
Ah...the vicissitudes of life brought me back onto dating websites. "Chapters in one's life that one would rather avoid but must get through." The teacher in me always embraces the learning curve. I believe two people should also learn from each other, which is ultimately what brought us together. Having said that..I bring to the table a confident woman with effective communication skills, a life filled with spontaneity, humor, passion, and the ability to challenge you athletically. I don't wear old lady genes because I am blessed with good genes. I am in shape doing bikram yoga, I stop eating when I'm full, and limit my wine to one bottle....LOL. I am a dancing queen and often get down with my bad self in my living room to Motown, Disco, Tower of Power.....ELLEN told me I was a good dancer (so I can cross that off my bucket list). If we date I will tell you about that. I am a retired school teacher/principal of 30 years and now work for a non-profit recruiting mentors and foster homes for kids in foster care. (any interest?) I love my twisted sisters and spending time with my family...I haven't mastered cooking, I color my hair, and I have some wrinkles...but my Gluteus Maximus makes up for that...LOL
About the one I'm looking for...
GOD....are you out there....??? No! and I don't expect that. I have strengths and weaknesses and so will you. Being 57, I realize the reality. But our luggage must match...we must be on the same page. You must be divorced or legally separated. I feel guilty I dated a married man...there is no integrity in that; I can only hope my 5 Catholic Hail Mary's will clear the slate. I am honest to a fault and would embrace the same from a guy. We tend to lie out of fear of ramifications. I want a guy who gets al this. I want someone who: knows how much Saturday nights mean to a woman, gets the power of a single rose for no special reason, makes dinner reservations, and doesn't expect more than a goodnight kiss for his efforts on a date. I need a confident man who is ok with me chatting with strangers..I am a people person. I do love silver hair on men. One who can go with me from dive bar to 5 star and be comfy in both, one who can wear a tux and also has cool jeans and T-shirts. I am visually attracted to a guy in a suit. I am financially secure and would appreciate a man who is the same. Marriage and living with someone is not my goal...finding someone I cant (don't want to) live without is...
I'd just like to add...
I am an independent woman and want an independent man...however, while I think we should both have our "own thing"... we embrace sharing our journey as a team....the good and not so good.
