A little about me...
I am a happy, caring, spontaneous, loving,passionate, giving and affectionate woman. I love to tease and be teased back. I like to read, walk hand in hand, watch a good "chick flick" ( my popcorn has to have butter half way down and on top of the tub!) I love an evening dining out (or dining in) with a good glass of wine and a fire . I'm romantic and love to be romanced. I enjoy cooking and would like to share that with someone special. I love going to the Theater and movies, concerts and listening to music. Sometimes I just like to "get the heck out of Dodge"! I love watching sports, especially basketball and football. Are the Iowa Hawkeyes # 1 with you (It's OK if they're not!!)? I love to travel and antique. I love time spent with family and friends. Pics: current.
I have moved back to Iowa from the Northwest after losing my husband.....we had retired there and traveled as part of our daughter's entourage while she was the head coach of the women's basketball team at the University of Oregon. I am ready to start living the joy of life again. Life is too short not to get to enjoy it with someone special..... Could you be the one....Are you ready to take the leap too? Are you "That Guy"???....
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm looking for a friend and something that could develop into a long term relationship. I like a man who is happy, fun loving, likes to tease, tall, very romantic, a gentleman, truthful, trustworthy and sincere, financially secure, educated, well read, and affectionate (who likes to touch as he brushes by..just because)... likes to laugh at himself, will love to do things on the spur of the moment, loves to travel and loves to be with family. That man would be so special if he would want to bring me a "little treat" when I was curled up on the couch reading a good book, just because he cared....(I would do the same for him)..... I want a man, that when I caught his gaze, would be looking at me and his face would light up because he treasured me... Do you feel that the above traits describe you? Are you, maybe, "That Guy" ???
I'd just like to add...
I like R & B, soft rock, jazz, country and love Rod Stewart's Great American Songbook Albums (Not his rocker days!!) I love Italian, Seafood and Mexican food....and an avacado a day keeps the doctor away!!! I love the Theater, being with family, just talking with someone special and a million more things that you could learn about......
