I do not do well talking about myself in the abstract. Ask me a
specific question and I am great, but to just speak off the cuff,
not so much. I will make this attempt. These things always come off
"scripted" to me. That aside, I have an empty nest now and I love
it. My children are off living their lives as am I. I am honest and
sincere, and believe in traditional values of honor and integrity.
I know what I want and what I cannot tolerate in a relationship.
Short phrase responses to my profile are useless and pointless. If
you are interested, then take the time to tell me that please. My
ultimate goal in "dating" is to find a man to have a lasting
relationship with and be married again. I have quite a few
interests and we can explore both of our interests together.
What I’m doing with my life
When my youngest child graduated from high school in '06, I asked a
dear friend a question; "what am I going to do now?". The reply was
"anything you want to", and I have. I have focused my life on what
I want and it has been fun. The sky's the limit for the future and
there is little that I rule out. I am comfortable with simple
pleasures, and can also appreciate the "finer things". From
Harley's to Halston, I am comfortable with both. I have been trying
new things and indulging more in personal pleasures. I will be very
up front on this too, I am not at all interested in any casual
relationships, I am on this website and others, and in real life,
actively seeking a gentleman who is compatible and interested in
building a long term nurturing relationship.
I’m really good at
I am really good at looking at something and seeing its hidden
potential. Like old worn furniture, or a garment that is outdated,
I refurbish items and bring new life to them. I am currently doing
that with the furniture in my bedroom.
The first things people usually notice about me
I do not know what people notice about me. I could say its my red
hair, or maybe my green eyes, or all the freckles, but I honestly
do not know. I hope they notice my kindness, I hope they appreciate
my good nature, but again, I just do not know for sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books, hmm,,, that depends. Books that I read in school
are still favorites and I have found new ones too. A few years ago
I read "A boys Life" by Robert McCammon. It was a "coming of age"
story that if you were of the baby boom age, you could really
relate to. I can be entertained by most movies, but I prefer
classics and old black and whites. Music is the same, with the
exception of Rap, and Heavy metal, I have an eclectic taste in
music. My favorites are Standards from the big band era, jazz and
of course, SINATRA! I love to cook, always experimenting with new
ingredients, so I have no specific "favorite" when it comes to
The six things I could never do without
Outside of air, food, shelter, and the other obvious necessities, I
would prefer to not have to do without the love of family, my dear
grandchildren, and the ability to make decisions for myself. Sounds
kinda heavy, I know, but I would really be lost without my cell
phone, my curling iron, and my library card.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about a lot of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
No night is "typical", including Friday. I do not think that the
entire weekend is a wash if I do not have a "date" for either
night. Besides, you can get a better table and service on the other
5 days of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will admit private things in private and when it is appropriate.
You should message me if
you feel so inclined because of something I said in this profile,
or there is something you want to ask me. I am interested in
meeting dominant self assured men who can appreciate the
submissiveness of an intelligent confident woman.
