A little about me...
Passions: My family, my friends, doing my work through social services and mental health therapy for abused individuals, equality and rights of all individuals, and having a daily spiritual experience. I need peacefulness and loving relationships with whom I spend my time. I love simple traveling, especially to the mountains and oceans. I enjoy visiting different cultures and meeting the locals. My adult children and very large Irish family are the loves of my life and my very best friends. I do not drink alcohol or smoke. It is not my business if you do; I just cannot spend time around the smoke or if someone is a heavy drinker. Being with someone who has "literally" a couple drinks never affects me. I am spiritual vs. religious. I am comfortable with other faiths but have found the 12 Step Way of Life to best express the healthiest and kindest perspective about living and the best tools to enhance my good nature. I am regularly active in social situations with other recovering folks. I would love to add my life's joys with yours.
About the one I'm looking for...
I desire only a gentle and honest love andfriendship. Jokes/ sense of humor are good; teasing is not. I am most content with sincerity and openness with feelings and thoughts. Honesty is the only way to true friendship, respect and love.
I'd just like to add...
-Social working and coming from my huge family and improverished Irish Catholic parents has provided me with NO money, honey! but lots and lots of love and help throughout my life.
-No longer a good little Catholic girl....just a practicing Liberal, Recovering, Spiritual, hard working female!!!!
-Respond with anger at meanness to, around and by me.
-Can be a touchy, feeling kind of partner.
I'm sure more confession to come...but I've set myself up for enough jokes and/or future rejections.
OH..and I have a great smile and blue Irish eyes...Smiling at you right now.

My Top Interests:
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working as a substance abuse and mental health therapist, My former clients have been individuals who are incarcerated, paroled or on probation. I specialize in women's issues but love working with my guys as well.
This is my second career, after 22 yrs as a banker, and I believe it is my third gift from God, second only to my 2 adult children and my loving, wonderful, extensive family.
I lose myself in word and card Internet gamers, have game nights at my place as often as possible, and hope to spend time with my new friend playing more games...
I might go out to play the slots about twice a year, spend about $50.00. I can not bear foot ball, golf or hockey, but LOVE basketball, baseball and soccer games, especially in person! I also read a variety of books and love sitting and talking under the sun. Going for walks in nature is delightful.
News and Politics
I have strong beliefs about what is right and what is not. I need to know what is happening around the world, at least in general. I listen to/ watch CNN and other balanced news stations and hope to share and discuss freely the world news and political situations without efforts to change each other.. TRUTH be told, I'm a died in wool liberal Democrat trying to find some balance in my old age. As yet, can't understand most of right wing conservatives' beliefs but open to sharing thoughts.
