A little about me...
Independent, charming and witty with an edge....I have a very dry sense of humor, bawdy and on occasion a bit twisted in a good sort of way. It is important that you share this quality and get my jokes which are usually along these lines.
I am a loan officer with major bank and have been in the real estate finance industry for over 25 years.
Firm believer that opposites don't attract.
I am self confident, self sufficient and have a positive outlook, focusing more on my blessings. I have 2 children and 2 grandchildren and spending time with them is high on my list of priorities. I enjoy dinner out, rides to ocean, time on my friends' sailboat(I know what the winch is, but I play the role of wench better), PPAC, Trinity and weekends away. Have traveled to Europe, Carribean and some of the US. Enjoy cruises, doo wop music, light jazz.
In addition, I can't walk and chew gum- so if you want to hike, canoe, snowboard, bungee jump, scuba dive or go white water rafting, I am not the girl for you. However, I do look really good sitting by the fire in a ski lodge in a nice fuzzy sweater! (No I don't ski- Just look good by the fire- you can ski- I'll be there for apres ski- promise!)
About the one I'm looking for...
If you share any of the same interests or personality traits, that would be a plus. I am looking for an intelligent individual, with a great sense of humor, easy to get along with and financially stable. I am not needy and don't carry a lot of baggage. Life happens and you learn from it-don't dwell on it. Want to be great friends first, enjoy each other's company and see what happens. I find men who are self employed to be more compatible. Maybe because I am in sales, we have to make things happen.
I'd just like to add...
FYI- One my favorite movies is My Blue Heaven with Steve Martin. I crack up everytime I watch it... that should give you an idea on my sense of humor.
Animals- I have 3 cats- if I have swordfish, they have swordfish-although one is partial to tomato sauce.
I also enjoy a lively politcal conversation. I am conservative but respect all opinions. I think a good debate can be fun, entertaining and educational and I can agree to disagree. I would welcome someone who is up to date on the issues and has an individually formed opinion on things.
Please do not respond if you have no photo, do not have a written profile(I am not psychic), or are unavailable- Legally separated is unavailable. If you think posting a photo with your baseball cap on backwards ,or with your muscle t shirt or shirtless- unless it's at the beach- is a good idea, then we are not on the same page.

My Top Interests:
Have just been certified as an International Tour Director. Hoping to do this part time in the future. I want to see new place and experience different cultures.
News and Politics
I have become very aware of the situation in the US today. To be frank, I am a Republican but welcome discussions from all points of view. We cannot afford to be complacent and oblivious to our government. Also love American History.
I really enjoy having people over. Sometimes for the casual barbecue and some times a little bit Ta-Ta- for the girls with the linens napkin, etc.
