Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I consider myself to be a genuinely nice person. I am honest, have
strong values and a sense of humour.
I enjoy the simple things in life; walking, camping, fishing,
boating, sailing, hiking, conversation, dancing, kayaking, boating,
sailing, 2-wheeling, cycling, swimming, and much much more most of
which provides moderate exercise. I like to dabble in photography.
Love my job as a secretary in an Ottawa hospital; yes I commute. I
have two wonderful adult sons ages 29 and 31 and recently became a
grandmother for the first time. My travel has been mostly in Canada
from Nova Scotia to British Columbia and would like to visit again.
A day or a weekend adventure, drive in the country to sightsee or
visit museums and attractions, all sound great. My favorite movies
are well-acted mysteries and dramas with an occasional action or
romance film thrown in. Enjoy most types of music. I occasionally
do word and number puzzles to relax. I like playing cards, board
and word games to keep my brain active. Spiritual. Je parle le
francais. I am not rich nor poor; I own my home, well okay the bank
and I own it. I love dogs.
Looking for someone with similar interests, so we can have fun when
we spend time together. Keeping busy is fun and I am always looking
to try new things. A quiet evening of dinner with wine, and
cuddling up with a movie is nice too. ...and of course,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Preparing for retirement, I hope to do more traveling and
experience more spontaneous adventure. I love my boys and their
families, so I enjoy the occasional time spent with them especially
over dinner. Friends and I share outdoor and social activities.

many things. Motherhood (even though they are men, they still call
on me for advice). I care about people. Games are fun, even if I
don't win, I am quite good at most word and number games. I've
hooked a couple of rugs and some needlework. Cook a mean roast beef
and I'm told my holiday birds are moist - there are seldom
leftovers. I am good at my job.
The first things people usually notice about me

is my smile. Then when they get to know me they see that I am a
calm, caring and mature woman. I seldom sweat the small stuff, and
when I do, I quickly realize it and talk myself into reason. I
admit when I am wrong and apologize when appropriate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Self-help books. I prefer movies over novels; the music, scenery
and facial expressions set the mood better for me. I like live
theatre. TV shows like CSI, Law and Order, Criminal Minds are my
favourites, though I seldom see them these days. My father loved
the old musicals of the 50s so I grew up listening to song and
dance; my guilty pleasure is dancing shows.
The six things I could never do without
