Fun, outgoing and have an honest zest for life. In fact my friends and acquaintances tell me my happiness is contagious. I was raised up in Northern MN. Graduated from college and moved down to TN and then moved again over to GA. I held a strong career in a technological field until I decided it was time to stay home and raise the kids.
Moving to MN has been an awesome break from the life I led down South. It's different here and I honestly like the snow! Yet, I do miss the Southern heat and the country drawl that can smooth anyone's heart. It is so good to hear and I miss it.
I raised my 3 children as a single parent for the past 10 years. I'm almost done...one left. She's (19) with me in MN while my son lives just south of us now by 20 miles.The other love of my life, my middle child, loves the South and lives there on her own.
In my pursuit of happiness in life I think it would be great to find a man that shares my love of the outdoors. Hiking, swimming, horseback riding, fishing, and camping are just a few of the things I like to do. Oh, I love to skeet shoot! Heck, I like shooting guns period! Personally I think it's more fun to shoot outside than in a range. Somehow somethings lost when one has to shoot inside.
On that note, I believe everyone has the right to carry a gun. It's an investment I've thought long and hard about and though I have a couple of large dogs...a gun will stop the bad person from hurting the good person = me/family. Not to get into a discussion of gun control, but know I do like shooting guns! Would really like to go pheasant hunting if you'll have me!
My temperament is easy and non argumentative. I seldom lose my temper, don't like to fight/argue to the point I'll walk away rather than argue. I'm open minded and can sit to have a discussion if something's bothering me and hope you'd show me the same respect. I'm not afraid to speak my mind. I love to flirt with you, play with you and laugh! I'll laugh at myself just as quickly as I'll laugh with you at yourself. No holds bard! We've got to have fun!
In terms of commitment I'm very dedicated to the man of my dreams...you. I'll always be faithful, always consider your feelings and never replace you as my best friend.
I'm honest to the core and never was a good liar...I'm not going to start now. lol
I've traveled to some parts of America but have a list of places I've not yet discovered. Have spent, on two separate trips, months living abroad. I had a blast and highly recommend it to everyone.
I'm not shy when out in public. I'll talk to just about anyone as I've got great confidence and poise.
My favorite color is a deep dark plum, my "happy place" is taking care of my horse (I get great satisfaction even from just simply grooming him), I keep my driveway and walkway clear of all snow and ice...no matter how much snow we get. I shower daily, wash my hair too! I no longer color my hair as I believe it's best to embrace oneself. Gray hair, I find attractive by the way. I prefer a man who's sporting some facial hair. I like clean cut for your looks but also so do love a "bad boy" that's hiding underneath. I love my dogs. Put up with the kids cats. I love to hike. I love horses. I'd love a good man!
