I'm a hard working mom of 2 great kids. My son is a college freshman and an Eagle Scout. My daughter is a hs senior; she's moderately autistic and never ceases to amaze us (I can hear the crickets now!). I have a close family with no drama. I'm very affectionate and giving. I'm down-to-earth, compassionate, a good listener, empathetic and supportive. I'm a lady and a woman and know when to be either. I love to laugh but never at anyone's expense. I appreciate someone who can get me giggling and laughing. I have a bit of a twisted sense of humor.
I live simply but am not simple. I think who I'm with is more important than what we're doing. At this point in my life I think compatibility and companionship are more important than things and status. I love to sit on the beach and watch the moon come up over the water. I'd rather till a garden than do housework. I'm a tomboy at heart.
While I'm not skinny any more but I'm not obese either; my clothing size is 14/16. One guy's profile had the requirement that a woman has to weigh less than 160 lb. Really?!? Barbie lovers, keep moving! lol I don't care if you have six pack abs or a full head of hair... we're middle aged, for cryin' out loud!! A big house or a fancy car doesn't impress me.
You're smart, compassionate, can converse easily, have common sense, a sense of humor, a big heart, are not afraid of your feelings or sharing them, not snobby or caught up in status or possessions, affectionate (PDAs a plus). Brownie points if you like to dance. Triple brownie points if you know the difference between your and you're (and there, their and they're) ;)
Because of family obligations I don't have a lot of free time so I am not looking for marriage or a serious relationship. I'm looking for someone to hang out with, laugh with, go to dinner, see a band, check out a museum, etc.
