Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for visiting my profile.
I'm NOT looking for a hookup. I'm searching for a life partner with
a man who is strictly monogamous.
I'm a people person, love music, movies, travel whether for a day
trip (I'd like to see my native Arizona again which I've been away
from for so long) or some distant destination, love to dance, ride
horseback, used to play a lot of sports, loved to garden but
haven't done much since I moved back to the the valley, but am
working on it. I can cook quite well, but have been somewhat out of
practice since I've been by myself for 10 years now. I've been told
I do bake some great pies too.
I grew up in the agricultural area northwest of Phoenix and I've
returned to that area though there are mostly houses now. I loved
summers up north (out of the heat) fishing, exploring, catching
bullfrogs, watching my siblings tanning a rattlesnake skin. I grew
up riding horses, living amongst a myriad of farm animals, citrus
groves and other agriculture (even picked a little cotton as a
child), pets and exotic pets.
I like most movie genres, photography, last read was "Daughter of
Fortune", before that "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series, and
saw the movie too.
I like hearing/reading about what is going on behind the scenes and
what is shaping our lives. I like information, the more the
I try to treat people the way I like to be treated, love holding
hands, and cuddling, and am affectionate and love affection. I'm
looking for a long term relationship with a man who is strictly

Jane Eyre, Lucifer's Hammer, Clan of the Cave Bear series, Daughter
of Fortune, most kinds of movies -- thought "J. Edgar" was
fascinating so need to read about him now-- "The Best Exotic
Marigold Hotel" is quite the human relationship movie, "Gravity"
was incredible action/sci fi flick; " 12 Years a Slave" was so good
and Tom Hanks did a great job as "Captain Phillips," but I've read
what the crew said actually happened so there was a LOT of artistic
license to make the guy likeable/honorable, have yet to see the new
"Hunger Games" and other movies out. I like most music except for
heavy metal, and still listen to top 40 to hear the newest artists
and their music. I like all kinds of foods and am always willing to
try new foods -- as long as it's not moving -- especially hot and
spicy Thai, Indian, Italian and Mexican! Prefer hole-in-the-wall
restaurants, rather than glitzy places, if the food is good.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Friends, family and my son; and what's going on in the world

of my family has been here since the 1860's, and the
Spanish/Mexican side before the US/Arizona was here). The now
deplorable state of Arizona's public school system.
