My self-summary
I am a 53 yo single, white, Christian, woman. I enjoy concerts, the opera, plays, museums, books, antiques, and traveling. As to outdoor activities, I enjoy walking, hiking, the beach, driving through the mountains, and bocce ball. Further, I think I would like to learn to kayak, paddle board, and maybe even golf. I am old-fashioned in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to dating and getting to know my gentleman friend. I enjoy being treated like a lady, having doors opened for me, being picked up for dates, and being wined and dined on those dates. I'm not high-maintenance; the dates don't have to be expensive but not cheap (as in fast food) either.

I value a man who is a Christian that strives to walk his talk (I know none of us are perfect, the bible even says "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", me included) and is willing to go to church with me fairly regularly (or at the least watch a live stream of my church services on the internet- Church of the Highlands) Generosity, chivalry, the ability to keep your word, a good communicator and a good sense of humor are traits also valued. I am looking for a special man who, besides the above characteristics, is intelligent, patient, laid back and loves to travel, whether a weekend trip to the beach or mountains or a week or so out of the country. I like a man that is a strong kisser and hugger. A little romance goes a long way with me.

Thanks for reading my profile. I hope to hear from some of you soon.
What I’m doing with my life
I am going back to college to get a nursing degree with the possibility of continuing on to get a Masters degree to be able to teach at the college level at some point. As an accountant, working for small family owned companies, I was unfulfilled. As a nurse, I am excited about being able to help people.
I’m really good at
I am good at cooking. Oh, and unfortunately for me, I'm really good at putting my foot in my mouth. This usually causes laughs for others but embarrassment for me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Quite a few people tell me my skin is beautiful. Does that count?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Although I love to read, most of my reading these days are nursing books. When I do have the opportunity to read for fun, I choose light, mindless novels to read. I have a few favorite authors that I enjoy.

I like a lot of different movies but I draw the line at horror movies. I love old black and white movies too.

As to TV, I like The Big Bang Theory (it's about the only comedy I watch), Continuum, Cedar Cove, House of Cards, Game of Thrones and others but I really don't get to watch much during the semester.

I like most genres of music. I grew up in the 70's so I really enjoy some of the classic rock that came out of that era. But I also like 20's-60's music too. I'm not fond of rap music but I will admit to rarely liking a rap song or two. Well, ok, so I like music. It's really a song by song choice as to whether I like it or not.

I love food! I enjoy cooking, especially if I have someone special to cook with. My biggest issue, I hate cleaning up after. I consider it a necessary evil. I love French, Italian, Chinese, Thai...you get the drift.
The six things I could never do without
God
Air conditioner
Family/friends
Air Conditioner
Books/Kindle
Oh, and did I mention an air-conditioner? (or a cooler climate.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What life is going to be like once I become an RN at 52 years old.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying, while I'm in school. Between semesters, I catch up on my sleep, read, really whatever poofs out my crinoline.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A lady does not speak of private matters publicly. I will say that I love a lot of foreign accents...British, Australian, French, Italian, Scottish, Irish...again, you get the drift.

After reading my WHOLE profile, you would like to get to know me better.
