A little about me...
I am a generous and caring person with an innate ability to make people feel comfortable and accepted. I understand that life is short and I am anxious to make the rest of mine special and memorable. I am passionate about music (singing for me) of all kinds, gardening (flowers, not food) and baking. I love to spontaneously stop at an estate sale and I cannot pass up a clearance shelf! I love to give and receive little surprises just to say "I was thinking of you today."
I am a caretaker by trade and by instinct and I love meeting the needs of people. My faith is part of that and it is something I feel I was made to do. I just plain love to love on people! I am one of those touchy-feely people and I really love to give and to get that special feeling with an arm around my shoulders, a hand held tightly and a little PDA. My dogs fill some of my empty nest feelings and I love them for that, but I need a loving, supportive, affectionate, devoted man of integrity share life's most fabulous experiences with. Great times ahead!
About the one I'm looking for...
Since I get to ask for anything I want I will go for the gold and probably realistically be excited about a bronze. My ideal partner would be someone people enjoy being around and is comfortable with that. He is witty, charming and adorable enough to make me love just being with him. Handsome in many ways, not just physically. The sexiest man could look like Shrek(maybe not quite that bad) if his heart is in the right place. My man should be respected and appreciated by family and friends who isn't hiding big skeletons in his closet. I'm not saying no baggage, cause at our age we all have some, but someone who owns his mistakes and has learned from them. I would like a man of faith that believes in God. Not a saint, but not a die hard sinner either. Most likely he will have children, as do I, and I would like to be able to blend or families fairly well. I will shut up after this one, I promise. My ideal man would love and respect me, warts and all, every bit as much as I love and respect him. I believe that true love is not very likely without true respect. This will make everything else a given.

My Top Interests:
Enjoy cruises and trips to any place warm. Don't know why I live in Michigan. :o)
Since I have extra space here, I also love gardening, some movies, musical theater and DIY projects.
Not to thrilled about cooking for one. I think this also includes hosting and I enjoying having friends over for a good meal and good laughs. I always like to try new restaurants, but super adventurous with international cuisine. Being a nurse I have seen too much.Enjoy baking at the holidays and many now expect my goody platters.
I have boys, some of whom played almost every sport, but primarily baseball. I also love a good college football game but am very partial to green and white! I like to go to ball parks, but football is better at home to avoid the idiots and avoid rotten weather.
