A little about me...
These photos are recent. Please have a RECENT photo on your profile.
I'm considered the fun factor in most any group. In fact, when asked in one word to describe me, 90% said "fun", my daughter said "honest" and I think both descriptions are accurate. I have a great sense of humor and would like you to have the same. I think that gets us through many difficulties. That said, I'm also extremely loyal, positive, caring and creative. I am presently retired, but my career in Interior Design has spanned everything from owning my own business, working for other design firms, writing a design column for several local newspapers to sales, design and marketing for a local furniture store.
I served as a CASA, a court appointed special advocate for children in the court system for several years. When I lived in CA from 2003 - 2007, I was very involved with mentoring some young women at the California Youth Authority and found that very rewarding. I was also involved with serving with a group who brought the Lord to young people in the Youth Detention Center here in Reno before I moved to So. California to care for my elderly mom. She passed away in July, '07, so I was able to move back to be near my grown children and granddaughter.
About the one I'm looking for...
First, I would like to say that if you really want my attention, DON'T send a flirt! I will not respond. Write me an email. It allows me to see much more of who you are.
I would be interested in meeting someone who is a very committed Christian, who lives in or near Reno, NV, is older than me or very near the same age, has a fabulous sense of humor, is intelligent, loves his family, is maybe a grandpa, and believes in giving back to the community.
I'd just like to add...
I'm a girly/girl. I look like a girl and act like a girl. I also have animals - two pups so if you're allergic to animals, I am not a good fit for you. I would also like to say that I do not want a long distance relationship. I am presently just interested in casual dating and friendship. I am a born again Christian with very conservative values....I'm a tea party candidate!!
If you are more than five years younger than me, please just say "next". I am not interested in very young men. I have mothered all the children I am going to mother....LOL The pictures are very recent and look just like me. You would recognize me in a crowded room, I promise.
One more thing....I'm also not interested in anyone with a drinking problem. If you have to have a drink every day or can't stay away from it for a week, you have a drinking problem.
If you contact me, I will answer as that's only polite.
