I believe you learn most about a person by how they treat children, the elderly and their pets.
I like quiet times, cuddling on the couch as well as walks in the park or going someplace interesting where I can shoot some photos. I love the water and can often be found at the pool in my apartment complex. Not laying out trying to get that great tan....actually swimming! My father was in the Navy so we were always living on the coast somewhere, and Hawaii the last four years before his retirement, which brought me to the mid-west.
I love to be on my computer, editing photos or working on the websites I have created. No matter how many times I change the look or content on a page, I always think it can be better. Guess that makes me a little bit of a perfectionist.
I'm not a fan of big crowds. I don't like going to stadiums, but if you want to my a guys day of go for it....I will be just fine doing some shopping or browsing antique malls. I don't have a large circle of friends, a couple really good friends, but I was one of those women that was so buy raising my children and taking care of my ex, I just lost contact with my friends. I got hit with empty nest syndrome and an ex who liked the women he worked with just a little too much. After the divorce, and kids away at college or making a life of their own, I find I have a lot of time on my hands. Looking forward to meeting someone to laugh with, have coffee with on Sunday morning and just share things with. I like the word Schnukums"....something about texting someone "good morning schnukums" is just fun!
Being up front and honest, I am struggling with a muscle disorder that causes me to have to take Prednisone. Nothing debilitating, fatal or catching; I am not confined to a wheelchair, use a cane or walker. However, good old Prednisone tends to make a person "puffy" and I have the traditional "moon face" associated with it. I have been on the meds for about 18 months which is a long time for Prednisone use, and unfortunately gained....don't faint....70 pounds. I have never weighed this much in my entire life and I am very self conscious of it.The doc promises the weight and puffiness will go away once I am off it however; it doesn't help that I believe Ice Cream should be the foundation of the food pyramid. lol I do not need anyone to be my nurse, just someone who is understanding and is willing to actually recognize who I am on the inside.
Finally, please, please IF we do happen to go out on a first date, don't tell me you will call, don't tell me you will see me soon if you really don't mean it. It's not the end of the world to just be honest and say, "I don't think this is a good fit." I dated a guy from this site and towards the end of our meal he said exactly that and I agreed,we were not a good feet. Just then a waiter walked by with a chocolate cake dessert that stood about 6 inches tall. We both looked at it, and each other and said, "what the hell, let's have coffee and dessert." We became the best of friends, never really dated again, but we still talk on FB now and again.
