Believe it or not, I'm actually a woman who has my "stuff" together and am NOT hung up on my ex ... apparently that is a problematic theme on dating sites!
I don't know why I have so many pictures of me with a guitar. I do have a lot more stuff in my life! I guess that this is when people tend to snap pics of me.
Divorced since January 2010 after a 20 year marriage. I'm an intelligent, independent, educated woman who is looking for a mutually respectful relationship and to be appreciated for who I am and for the things that I bring to a relationship. I'm generous, funny, understanding, optimistic, affectionate and creative. I LOVE live music (rock, blues, and just about anything 80's - but NOT country), dancing, dining, wine, reading, movies, baseball games, and day-trips. I have an adventurous spirit but haven't had the opportunity to travel as much as I'd like to. I hate the snow - hate being cold ... love the beach. I love to laugh, I play the guitar and sing a little bit - I'm in a classic rock / acoustic rock cover band and we play at local wine bars and events. I always have a song playing in my head .. ask me at any moment what song I'm thinking of and you will probably learn something about me! I have recently become interested in wine tasting ... I learned to play craps a couple years ago and enjoy a trip to the tables in Reno or Tahoe once in a while. Every so often I like to have a day of "nothingness" and just sit around in my sweats watching movies, but I much rather prefer to be out seeing and doing things - going on a day trip to anywhere, window shopping, walking, people watching, laughing, finding some music and just enjoying the world around me whatever it may look like.
I recently lost a significant amount of weight and am interested in taking care of myself physically, emotionally and spiritually. I did the gym and a trainer for a while, but watching the budget, so now I pretty much try to really watch what I eat and get out for a walk/jog with my 18 mo. old lab. I'm just now coming to a place in my life where I think I might just be pretty (5'7", blonde, blue eyes) ... while physique is not a deal-breaker by any means - I would like to be with someone who just takes care of themselves too or is working at it. I am 5'7" in bare-feet and tend to like guys who are taller than me. I'm a strict non-smoker and that's pretty much a deal-breaker for me - just a personal thing. I do like to enjoy a nice bottle of wine or a strong margarita once in a while. I like to feel pretty and pamper myself once in a while with a massage or mani/pedi, but I'm not a girlie-girl ... I recently bought a house and like to do home improvement projects (I'm not afraid of power tools!) and I like to play and be active. Let me dress up and and be the one you can show off at a nice restaurant or business party and I'll do my best to dazzle you and your friends ... but don't be afraid to suggest that we then go hang out at a dive karaoke bar - you'll have just as much fun with me there! I wouldn't consider myself an "outdoorsy" kind of girl, but would not be opposed to an occasional camping trip - I can find a good time just about anywhere. I can also be persuaded once in a while to make some popcorn (the old fashioned way - on the stove) and snuggle into the couch with you for a movie (I do like action flicks and thrillers too)!
