Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I thought I'd update some of this stuff, I guess I've been on OK
for a few years now. I never thought that I'd be single for so
long. I like being single most of the time. I am happy yet I still
want to find that special person that looks at me and sees me with
all of my imperfections and still loves me. I could live the rest
of my life alone and be at peace yet I still look for LOVE.
I'm a medical massage therapist and have been practicing for twelve
years, I love my work. I opened a massage business a couple of
years ago and I work at a medical center full-time.
I have been married twice, the first was my high school sweetheart
and he became the father of my beautiful daughter. I married my
last husband mostly because I didn't think I could take care of
myself and my baby daughter. The funny part was I ended up mostly
taking care of all of us, including my husband. That last marriage
lasted for 25 years, not all bad, not all good- but years that
helped to make me who I am. I am happy to say we are still good
friends, too many years just to throw away.
What else can I say about myself? I was born and raised in Florida
but I love living in Texas. I feel like Austin is home, I've lived
here a little over six years. Something else about me, I don't care
to spend money, I would rather do most anything than go shopping.
Thrift stores are fun and yard sales are great. I am not above
picking up good stuff on the side of the road. I love camping and
being outside doing anything, fishing, hiking, sitting by a
I enjoy singing and playing music, I recently bought myself an
upright piano. I like instruments of all kinds. I buy them and to
learn to play and then I drift from one to another when the mood
hits me. Right now the fiddle is my passion.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a lot because I love what I do, helping people. Patients
come in to see me in pain and usually leave feeling better. For me
that's important makes my life meaningful. What else can a human
want in their work. I feel that's what we are here for- to serve
I'm also helping to teach my grand-daughter about life and the
goodness of it. I take her camping and fishing, teaching her to
take care of herself and not expect someone else to do it. We are
each responsible for our own happiness.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I'd like to tell you what I'm not good at here instead of
what I'm good at because I believe I've already covered that above.
I'm not good at being dishonest, I just don't lie very well nor do
I want to learn. I'm not good at small talk- silly, mindless
chatter is not natural for me. I'm not good at hurting someones
feelings, I would much rather be hurt myself than than cause
another pain. I'm not good at hiding my feelings, I'm really
transparent people tell me, and sometimes I wish that wasn't true.
I'm also not good a staying inside and cleaning house when it's a
lovely day, I love my house clean but that can always wait and the
sunshine can't. Believe me there is much more that I'm not good at
but you get the idea. Oh yes, I'm not a good dancer, I've tried and
tried. I'd love to learn line dancing or the cotton-eye Joe but so
far it just hasn't taken, however I'm not giving up.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Maybe my silly smile or my brown eyes. People may notice that I am
a bit shy, this I try cover up but shyness is tricky, it is
difficult to cover at least for me, thank God I don't blush like I
use to when I was a girl.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
There are times that I read a great deal, right now I'm reading
lots of Biographies and autobiographies, I love reading about
people and history, how we as a society got here. Maybe what makes
people "tick". Maybe I somehow through them find out how I
I don't watch TV, I don't own one anymore but I have Net flicks on
my computer. I like British dramas and I am a classic movie nut, so
I watch those when I am at the gym. I like the old stars, Katherine
Hepburn, Cary Grant, Bette Davis. Most modern movies are pretty
predictable and not worth the money to me, however once in a while
they come out with a great one. I also like plays and ballets and
would like to see more if I get the chance.
I still like folk music, Joni Mitchell is my favorite. Don Williams
is still at the top of my list of country singers. I like guitar
music, almost any style as long as it has heart. I have also
recently renewed my relationship with classical music. I'm trying
to interest my grand-daughter in classical music and I have come to
love it more myself.
I love most foods however I eat clean, organic if possible, but I'm
not a vegetarian anymore. Don't get me wrong I'm not perfect in my
eating habits I love fried almost anything, especially fish, but I
try to restrain myself.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
As I get older I need less and less, but I would not be happy
without my girls, my daughter and grand-daughter. Other than them I
would survive "I think" without "things". Of course this has never
been tested. I also could not live without prayer, prayer is hope
and hope is prayer, no I can not live without hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
For some reason this is hard to answer honestly. I don't dwell on
things like I use to, I just live and have a happy life. With all
the things I could think of or worry about, what would it matter, I
can control very little. I've never been much of a planner anyway.
These days I live and enjoy what's left of my life. I pray- but
that's a different subject.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work at a medical center on Friday for ten hours and by the time
I get home I'm really beat so I'm not sure that I have a lot of
energy to do anything except go out to dinner. I do better on
Saturday and Sunday, on those nights I love to go out to listen to
some music or to a movie, maybe take a long walk. If I'm at home by
myself I work-out or take a long swim if it's summer. In the winter
I enjoy just sitting by my fireplace playing a little music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing I'm willing to admit is that I seem to
always get blue at dusk, when the sun just starts going down,
mostly when I'm by myself. I try to keep busy during this time so I
don't get so sad. I do find that this issue has gotten better
recently. Why? I suppose I am just a happier person and have begun
to really allow myself to give and receive love. I'm not really
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
.... you are a Christian, I've dated men that weren't and it just
didn't work out in the long run. One other thing, I need someone
that is local- that lives in the Austin area or will relocate. I
would consider leaving Austin once my grand-daughter gets older,
maybe in collage but right now I can't leave my daughter and
grand-daughter. They don't live with me but they are part of the
package. I know this is asking a lot but my daughter is single and
I've made a commitment to help raise my grand-daughter until I'm no
longer needed. If you want to be a part of my family and think you
might want me to be a part of yours' then you should message me. I
hope you do.
