I love spending quiet evenings at home with a special someone, cooking, the arts,movie night (at home or the theatre), outdoor concerts, and sports (I love our Orioles & Ravens - I'm a hometown girl)
I'm told I don't look 59. I definitely don't feel or act it. As a matter of fact, at this point in my life, I am beginning a new career.
I enjoy my home, working in yard and spending time with my 25 yr old son, who has really got me into sports. He lives with me, & I am extremely proud of him. But, I need to be straight up with you - my son and I at this point are a package deal. He is a wonderful man with a disability. He has Cerebral Palsy, considered a quadriplegic. So with many facets of his life he requires help, especially, daily life skills. I do have help coming into the house to assist during the day, and overnight, but ultimately, he's my son. I don't relinquish that responsibility. I need to think of him with everything I do. His staff has been very flexible with me and for me, so I can have time for me.
My son is a great deal of fun, and has my same warped sense of humor. I don't coddle him, do things for him that I know he can do himself, I strongly encourage independence, and would want you to do the same for him. BUT, with that being said, I definitely enjoy my time away from him, and he enjoys his time away from me. We need and have 2 separate lives, that overlap.
Since my life has taken this curve in its journey, I look forward to meeting new friends, and hopefully more than that. I loved being in love, and hope to find that again. I loved being a complete family.
About that special one I'm looking for...
He needs to be someone who enjoys just being together-whether it be out with friends, casual dating, or a long term relationship; I like to think my ultimate goal is a LTR, if I find that right person. HONESTY is the most important virtue I value in a relationship. If you can't be honest with me, lie, even by omission, we'll have nothing, no trust.
I'm seeking someone to do & enjoy things I enjoy, as well as bringing new adventures into my life.
And obviously, with what I just told you, need to be compassionate, understanding, patient, and willing to help me with my son, even if it's just going to a game, going on 'family' vacations, being with his friends & even their families sometimes.
I love the idea of kisses, hugs, secret looks, cuddling, holding hands as we walk, love texts, calls to check in with each other, and all those wonderful ways of showing someone you care for them; that you love them. Public affection is a given. I will show my feelings for you when the mood strikes, not just behind closed doors. I won't embarrass you, or myself, but a kiss as we walk, in a store, a restaurant should not surprise you.
If this kind of lifestyle with me peeks your curiosity, I'd love to hear from you.
