A little about me...
My friend Brad says to tell you that I’m beautiful, intelligent, financially secure, and most of all, not psycho. I don't think I’m beautiful, but he's my hair stylist so I think he has to say that. I am wicked smart, down-to-earth, kindhearted, loyal, sweet and very affectionate with the right guy. I love to cook, garden, travel, day hike, watch movies, try new restaurants (and old favorites), read and go to the beach. I am a huge football fan, especially college ball and the Seahawks. I am comfortable in formal wear, but prefer jeans and a t-shirt most of the time. I tend to be a bit shy and am more of a homebody than party girl, but going out is fun too. I have a demanding but really great job and work with some terrific people, many who are also good friends.
I have been separated since August 2009 and am still very good friends with my ex, but our relationship has been completely platonic for years. For legal and financial reasons, we have chosen not to divorce for now, but I would be willing to do so if it became an issue. There’s not a lot of baggage there and I am content being alone, but remember how wonderful it felt to be in a loving and committed relationship and would very much like to find that again.
About the one I'm looking for...
My ideal man would be passionate, romantic, a gentleman, kind, intelligent, tolerant, politically progressive or moderate and have a great sense of humor. I tend to be attracted to guys six feet and under with a thin or medium build, but I wouldn't rule out anyone by body type. (I am 5’6” and 120 pounds, so I am on the smaller side myself.) I am trying to quit smoking (again), so it would be helpful to be with someone who was more supportive than critical.
I'd just like to add...
I haven’t been on a date in over 20 years and this is my first foray into online dating, so please be gentle, especially if I breach some unknown netiquette. I am a breast cancer survivor who had to have a mastectomy. My plastic surgeon did an outstanding job on the reconstruction and I look good in clothes, but there are scars. I feel terrific and have a normal life expectancy and very low risk of re-occurrence, but I understand this might be a big turnoff for some guys. If it's no big deal to you, then you might be right for me.
