Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Quick clarification - NO, I am not looking for NSA, FWB, or to
satisfy your foot fetish. I'm GGG, but in the context of a
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
is just to love, and be loved in return"
Looking for someone who can enjoy the ordinary, day-to-day life.
Who likes sharing chores and projects and everyday stuff. Who is
good at intimacy (not just sex, but plenty of that, too). Someone
worthy of being the center of my world. Which doesn't mean money,
or success, or any of that conventional tripe. But someone I can
admire and adore, and who will cherish me in return.
I'm good at getting by on my own, but tired of it. A soldier or
someone who was otherwise deployed sometimes would be fine - I do
okay by myself, and don't feel the need to run all around town
partying. If you're interested in a solid home to return to instead
of a titty bar bimbo, I might be of interest to you. I am willing
to do my share to maintain a relationship while apart. Did this for
years with my soldier, who died a few years ago.
I may be large and imposing and willing to talk to strangers and
all that, but I'm NOT a "domme" in practice or by nature. I like a
man who is manly enough that I feel more feminine around him. I'm
talking attitude and presence- he doesn't have to be a giant
I'm not a single-issue voter, and I'm not a single-issue
I'm on good terms with the bus drivers, the cleaning staff, and the
food service staff at work... I speak to them, I have an easy
smile, and am appreciative. Goes a long way. One recently told me
as I got off the bus that "as always, you have made my day a
brighter one". I also tip well and give compliments.
Please be drug, disease, wife, tobacco, and NASCAR free.
I stomp in puddles and walk in the rain without an umbrella. I
don't require artificial excitement to be entertained.
NOTE! I have my own job, health insurance, and house. I'm not
trying to snag anyone for his insurance or housing!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a "real" job and taking care of my beasties. I actually
like my main job. They encourage me to learn and to grow, and what
more can you hope for in a job? I'm admin support for research
efforts for a dozen or so docs at a university.
At home there are always the animals, always something to clean up
after or feed, or otherwise tend (I'm great at veterinary first aid
and supportive care). Horses, cow, cats, dogs, chickens, turkeys,
geese, ducks. Sold my pigs and goats a while back. Spring and
summer there's the garden, and my roses, and winter there are my
cherry trees to prune, firewood to haul. Little by little I'm
tiling the floors in the house.
Training two young horses - one of my own, and one for a
So nothing profound. But not as much frivolity as some folks,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making jelly. Seriously. I'm a very good figure-out-how-to-do-it
person. My dad taught us nearly anything can be done if one just
reads up and figures out how. I'm a good horseback rider, used to
teach and train successfully (but it's too hard to pay the bills
that way). I'm a pretty fair rifle shooter out to 600 yards without
a scope (197-6 personal best to date, in a switchy wind), and I
don't usually embarrass myself at 1000.
The first things people usually notice about me

Someone recently told me my vivaciousness had made a great first
impression. (his word)
but most folks probably just see a large redheaded woman. Who
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love German movies, many other foreign movies, and all kinds of
stuff, Ed Harris to JCVD, Evil Dead to Princess Bride.
The Princess and the Warrior is my favorite movie of all
Will read nearly anything if it's decently written. CJ Cherryh is a
big favorite. Recently got a Kindle, so I'm reading all kinds of
Albinoni to the Pogues, West coast cool jazz, and even some
I'm not a picky eater, and would not be a good match for one. I
like curry, mexican, italian, chinese, seafood... broad range. Just
go easy on the salt, and skip the msg.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee. And you don't want to see me try. I say that, but I have
gone months at a time without, as an experiment to see if it helped
my shooting accuracy. Still. The withdrawal wasn't pleasant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Odd stuff. Like "horrible, terrible, horrifying, terrifying,
horrific, terrific?? How'd that happen? When/how did 'terrific'
become a positive?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Scooting home by way of the feed store, and planning what to do
first on Saturday; Dinner and a movie with friends at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will watch drum and bugle corps, marching bands, and ballroom

You don't need a woman who looks like what your buddies want.
You think you might like a woman who has wired her own outside
lights, re-plumbed her kitchen, and can shingle a roof.
