A little about me...
I am retired from teaching after 35 years in an inner-city school district. I have my Master's Degree plus 60 credits beyond that. In teaching, I have always felt that good teachers have the necessary credentials, and that great teachers also have an "innate ability!"
I am extremely honest, trustworthy (as well as trusting!), loving, fun-loving, giving (sometimes to a fault!), honest, faithful, and reliable. (I sound like a girl scout! LOL) Although I have no children, I love my extended family of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews dearly, although I do not get to see them as often as I would like.
I am not much of a cook (more like a "non-cook") or a housekeeper, so, if you are looking for a "Susie Homemaker" type of woman, I am not the one for you! LOL
About the one I'm looking for...
At this point, I am looking for a friend or casual dating. If feelings develop, then I would follow my heart!
I want a man who knows the importance of honest, open communication. One who is understanding and supportive during the best and the worst of times. I would like to find someone who sees me as an equal, but at the same time treats me like a lady (even when I'm in sweats with no make-up!)
I want to be appreciated for my strengths and good points, not criticized for (or reminded of) my faults and short-comings. I would like to feel cherished, treasured, and protected, even though I do not expect a man to solve my problems. I would want to have a partner's input and opinion on important issues (even if I didn't agree)! LOL
I'd just like to add...
I am an animal lover, and currently have 4 cats and a dog. Each was a stray or a rescue and has its own unique story.
I enjoy dancing, dining, movies, arts, theater, concerts, all kinds of music (except heavy metal, rap, or hard rock), antiques, flea markets, travel, walking, reading, cuddling, the beach, galas, as well as quiet times at home.
I have a good sense of humor and enjoy laughing with people, but never at them! I like to have fun, but also enjoy having serious discussions about many things.
