*** ARE SUFFICIENTLY YOUNG THAT I COULD'VE BEEN YOUR MOTHER!! If you're less than 35 years old, there is simply nothing you could say or do to change my mind on this. If you're local, we might still be friends, but we would never date. I'm set in my ways whenever it comes to age, religion, politics, race and sex. After 52 years....I'm not budging on those points. It wouldn't matter if you teach motorcycle safety to law enforcement, there's NO WAY I'll get on a motorcycle with you or anyone else...sorry. If you message me and I either don't respond or do and wish you all the best in your search, it means, for whatever reason, I'm not interested. Please simply accept that. I'd prefer it if I could avoid saying that I'm not attracted to you!! I truly am a nice person and I do my best to be polite. There are simply some men I'm attracted to and others I'm not. I'm certain that's true for us all. Respect that. Don't force the issue and make me say it in a way that might cause hurt feelings. I just really don't like doing that.
Also, if you:
1) don't fall into the parameters of my search and want to attempt to change my position. I very much appreciate a friendly "hello" and/or "wish you well in your search". I've spent a great deal of time with myself and know ME....better than anyone. While it's possible that I MIGHT be convinced to try something new to eat or drink, it's unlikely that I'm budging on a compromise with any of the things I've listed.
2) don't like what I've written, or what I think, or how I look. I'd never even consider writing a message to someone unless I were actually interested in them. Some might read this condition and wonder why I'm writing it. My profile essay is as long as it is almost entirely due to the fact that I keep adding things like this because of past experiences with this and other sites. It's either try this or give up entirely and I remain faithful that there are genuinely nice people still out there.
3) don't get a response from me. Basically, no response equals no interest...for whatever the reason. If I haven't responded to the first, second or third message, sending a fourth, fifth or sixth isn't going to change anything. I used to answer everyone, even if it were to simply say "thank you and I wish you the best in your search". That hasn't faired so well for me. Please understand that I'm being as polite as possible simply by not saying anything at all.
IF CHRISTIAN, CAUCASIAN AND CONSERVATIVE ARE NOT WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, OR ARE TRAITS TO WHICH YOU OBJECT, PLEASE DISREGARD WHAT MY PICTURES LOOK LIKE ;-)
I love music and concerts; especially rock music. Good food and good fun go hand in hand. I'm a chiropractic physician (that wasn't listed in 'education', so med school was the closest choice!). I'm free-spirited and love to do new things. I enjoy going out and dancing, even if I have to dance alone while my friend watches! I enjoy dressing sophisticatedly, subtly sexy which expresses my personality as well. I'm intelligent, but not a know-it-all (I was a member of MENSA at the age of 15, but doubt seriously I could pass the test today!)
I have been, but am no longer controlling OR clingy. I've been with the men that enabled those ugly things in me...the too passive or too aggressive types. I've been on my own for over two years and divorced since May 29, 2014. I've now returned to my true self. It's a journey, not a destination, so I know there's still work to be done. "Be patient; God's not finished with me yet!". I believe that the only mistakes in life are the experiences from which we don't learn something in order to grow. I've rediscovered my vulnerability, my strength, my dignity, my radiance, my passion, romance (my own appreciation for it; not receiving it) and devotion. In essence...my 'beauty' and femininity!
I'm a veteran (served USN active duty as a corpsman, USAFR as a medic, LANG medic and USNR corpsman) and a member of the VFW and American Legion. I'm also a card-carrying member if the RNC and take my conservative values towards politics seriously. I own a .38 Taurus (but, would trade it for a 1911 .45 and will be getting my CCW license soon) Both ears are pierced twice, as well as my nose and navel. NO ink!
