Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a 54 year old divorced female with no kids (that age number
looks REAL big right now!!!) I always wanted to have a family of
two legged kids, but it never happened, instead I have the
four-legged kind, two Siamese rescue kitties. I do love kids and
have always known I will likely meet a guy who has kids and even
grand kids. This is a good thing!!
I work in the media (TV) on the technical side of things and can
talk about a variety of topics, including current events in the
news and I love lively engaging conversations.
I like to do lots of different things, including movies, travel,
camping, riding my bike on the Silver Comet trail. I have lost
about 65 pounds since my lap-band surgery and am always excited to
look in the "regular" women's clothing sizes. I still have about 30
pounds to go---so I am not thin. More on the "fluffy" side!!
I often head back to the western states to see family and friends
and miss the mountains, BUT not the winters out west. I like
Atlanta's mild weather and don't miss owning a snow shovel. (does
Walmart even carry them here??) I have been to Yellowstone many
times, and my folks own a cabin near the west entrance of the
I am kinda witty, fun, and a listener. I love to people watch!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like to say that I am alone, but I am not lonely. I have been
divorced since 2000 and it is time to find someone to spend time
with. Life is all about sharing, the good times and the bad.
I don't mind being alone at my house, but doing things with someone
would be sooo much nicer. I have been Geocaching, which makes being
in the great outdoors fun, that is, if your GPS works well!! :D
Don't know what it is?? There is a great website where you can plug
in your zipcode and "caches" that other people have hidden are all
around you (www.Geocaching.com
). It's a great way to explore little
known places in Georgia!! It would be nice to find someone who
likes to do things like this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have been told that I make a person feel at ease and am easy to
talk to, I really do like people!! I would like to think I can talk
and listen about a variety of topics too, from cars to politics, to
kids and pets to what's going on in the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that the comment I always get is "you are so easy to talk
I like to listen to people, and I love to people watch!! It's
always fun to watch the people in Atlanta's airport as they race to
catch their flights, while waiting to catch mine!!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like autobiographies and non-fiction.
Ahhh!! Music!! I am varied in my interests. I mostly listen to WSB
radio in the car and then alternative rock on "Octane" on XM
satellite. When Atlanta got rid of their new rock stations I
decided I was going to take my dollars elsewhere, so Sirius/XM it
is. I often say that I have music tastes of a 25 year old.
Disturbed, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Atreyu, Fuel, Tool,
Alice in Chains are some of my faves. You have to be very young at
heart to know who I mean by those names.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This Country and how blessed we are to live here!!
hmmm......that's 5, thinking on some other things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the way this country and world are in such peril right now. I try
not to dwell on it, but so many people are hurting these days and
even though I have a decent job I hurt for the people who don't
have any income. It's my hope that the nation turns around. I am
largely conservative, however middle of the road on some issues.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I will go for a late night outing at Walmart. Yeah, I
know.....pathetic!!! I like an occasional night out, but he bar
scene got old a long time ago. We were all out there in our 20's,
and I am no exception!!
I sometimes will go with friends to Johnny's Hideaway, or just to a
friend's house party. I am generally home lately because I got
flooded here in Austell in September 2009. The house still needs
some work to recover, but I am doing it like I want it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
hmmm......will have to think on this one too. I think I am pretty
much an open book. I don't understand why this question is here to
tell you the truth. Most people say "if it is private why would I
say anything here??"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
..........YOU ARE REALLY READY TO DATE!!!! I know many guys here
are skittish, maybe because of past experiences and they got burned
in their marriages.
Recently I have found there are guys on here who are not
emotionally ready for the dating scene. You shouldn't be on here if
you still think you can work things out with your ex wife or ex-GF.
Just please PLEASE be sure you are ready for the dating scene and
being single. I realize that there are likely women on here as well
who are not ready to leap out in the singles world either, and you
likely have your own experiences on here where you have been
Please do NOT be afraid to message me. I am not shy about firing
off a nice little 1 or 2 line note telling you how I enjoyed
reading your profile and how you were expressive and had a lot to
say. It's refreshing to read a profile by a guy who an write and
express himself well.
Who are you looking for?
