A little about me...
I am an independent, creative, active and healthy woman who loves to travel, play card games, do crafts, read (mainly fiction), volunteer. I'm into design, and I love all different kinds of creating: decorating, sewing, playing the piano, cooking, transforming areas of my home to flow smoothly. I like change and I stay open-minded and ready for adventure. I'm caring and compassionate, recently retired from the education field. I just returned to Oregon after being gone for 40 years. I missed the beautiful scenery and glorious mountains. My personality? Outgoing, easygoing, always going...I'm full of it. I have a spark in my voice, my heart and eyes that lets you know I'm alive and intend to stay that way. I love my independence, and would welcome a man who loves his equally. I feel complete and whole within myself, and am looking for the same. I'm a Christian and my walk with The Lord is very important to me. Similar beliefs is a top priority.
About the one I'm looking for...
Not so sure about that "partner" word. I just love to go out, and would so enjoy having someone to do things with. I love musical theatre, chamber music, movies, visiting beautiful spots outdoors, RV camping, boating and hiking.
In relationships, I prefer a man who feels no need to control me, my beliefs, or my actions. I believe I'm more than able to control myself, just the way I want. I'm looking for a secure, caring, easygoing, positive, all-around good man who is confident enough to let me be me, and I will return the favor. I'd appreciate someone talkative, with important and valuable things to discuss. I would rather dress up and go out somewhere than hang around the house. I'm hoping to connect with someone, however, I'd enjoy doing either with. If I were to meet my soul-mate, I'd shout hallelujah from my Hillsboro roof-top. I have the ladder. But until then, I'm looking forward to meeting several wonderful men who are educated, passionate about life, and ready to enjoy as much of it as I am.
I'd just like to add...
If you didn't laugh at "Overboard" with Goldie Hawn you may not be a match for me. "Penmaric" by Susan Howatch...Geez! - a gothic novel, I read many years ago, remains my favorite book. I also enjoy Nelson DeMille, Greg Iles and David Baldacci novels. I'm an avid reader and though you don't have to join me in that passion---why wouldn't you? I love dogs and am currently thinking about getting a puppy when I get back from my next round of travels! I am fit. I work hard to stay healthy, walking and watching what I eat. (actually I eat hard when on vacation, but once I get home, the exra few pounds come off). Favorite eat-out food: seafood or Mexican. Favorite foods in my kitchen: salmon, asparagus, mashed potatoes, coconut cream pie (my cooking ROCKS). Favorite quote: I get up. I walk. I fall down. Meanwhile I keep dancing.
