A little about me...
I consider myself to be a pretty easy going person and like to enjoy everything in life. I have been a nurse for over 46 years and really enjoy my work but did retire from full time nursing in July 2012 due to a bad hip and knees. I had a hip replacement in April 2013 and recommend not waiting to have the surgery if you need it. I do still do work for the ND Board of Nursing in a very part-time position. I test students to be certified for a Certified nursing assistant . I love to travel and have been through many states to get to a final destination. I have also been to Spain and Rio years ago. Interesting places. 4 yrs ago went to the Bahamas for my niece's wedding. Not big into taking physical risks, so no bungee jumping. I like the outdoors and spending time walking my dog when the weather is nice. I love to put my feet in the sand at the beach and swimming (treading water haha) in the ocean. love the beauty of the beach, turquoise water, and the surroundings at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. I am far from materialistic and spend time spoiling my grandkids, have 8. I am honest, sincere, straightforward, like to joke and have a great sense of humor. I have 2 grown daughters
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a serious relationship, depends on where the friendship takes me. I believe you have to be friends first as you have to "like" the person you love too. You need to be a companion, someone who will always stand up for me and be there when I need a shoulder to cry on or when I have good news to share. Trustworthy, respectable, respectful, honest, caring, responsible, with a high level of integrity are the characteristics I look for in others as I feel this is who I am. I would never expect out of a partner anything more than I am willing to put into a relationship. The wonderful people that I call my friends or "sisters" would tell you that I give a lot more than I take, but I feel the exact same way about them! I wouldn't mind going out as friends just to have a good time, but I very rarely drink and DO NOT smoke, nor will I date anyone who does smoke (too much tragedy in my life associated with smokers/lung cancer). Needs to be a family oriented person and have good moral character.
I'd just like to add...
My favorite things to do are spend time with my amazing grandkids and attend their activities. I like all types of food and like to eat out once in a while, just nothing super spicy. I enjoy dramas, comedies, family movies, and chick flicks, but not horror movies. I even watch Disney movies and cartoons at times. I love classic rock n' roll and the oldies, don't care for rap or hard rock music. The most fun experience I've had was swimming with the dolphins and would have stayed there for days if they would have let me! If you are interested, please send me a message. A good relationship includes mutual trust and great conversation.
