Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've yet to grasp the meaning of soulmate so I make no request for
one here. A long term relationship? … well sure, possibly. Given
that I am not a big fan of self promotion, presenting myself
becomes a challenge. This is my most recent attempt at authenticity
... a profile without the spin. I'm great at spin and while it has
served me in the past, there will be none of that here. I fly no
false colors. My goal is for something a little more unvarnished
... save us all time. Truth be known, the way I see myself is that
I am 90% the most awesome woman you will ever meet, while the other
10% is the woman that you would never want to know. I'm sure that
many might see this differently... maybe 50/50 or even less in my
favor. But I think I am being accurate so I'm sticking with my
I'm Martha. My friends call me Mart. I'm very soft and feminine but
I'm a Philly girl and have been on my own a lot so there's an edge
to me that makes me, well, superior to all other forms of life ...
No, I'm just kidding ... I'm a real kidder. I'm a mother with a
daughter, a son in law, and two gorgeous grandchildren .... and
yes, they come first. I look like my pictures, except that my hair
is longer and I might be a little thinner; and while I am not
overweight, I'm not skinny either. I like to think of myself as
athletic and toned :-)
What do I do? I am blessed with the luxury of doing whatever I
want; I'm retired, so It really depends on the day. I spend time
with my family. There are organizations that are meaningful to me
that I support in various ways. I work out almost every day, partly
in the interest of vanity because I like to look good, but also it
helps to dull the roar in my ear that comes from life in general,
into something that more resembles white noise. I've just moved
from my house into an apartment so I am having fun getting my new
home together. I do spend a lot of time alone and I love it that
way, but I would like to widen the net a little ... have some dates
... go some places ..
Where this gets complicated is trying to describe what I am looking
for in a mate or a date. I am hetero, so there's that. I am not
seeking any particular race or age (close to my own give or take
would probably work best). I like nice people ... kindness and
generosity above everything else because I am that way myself. What
I don't want is any kind of religious zealotry, and as a lifelong
Democrat, I prefer not to be bullied for my politics. I don't want
a wimp either. I want a guy that can take charge of things. In my
life I'm responsible for a lot, so I really like it when my partner
drives the car. So if you're cheap, chronically indecisive, or a
zealot, I'm not your girl. .... and I'm not into enabling your
psychosis. If you're crazy, just 'bye. I'm certainly not the one to
be judgmental with regard to a certain amount of freak but I really
must pass on the burden of a lunatic. So my goal here, I think, is
to meet a man to hang out with, go to the movies with and hopefully
find a place of mutual trust that will make intimacy possible
because that is important to me as well.

at the horizon you won't get seasick....
The ocean, .. it's always the ocean for me.

If you've read this far, you probably know the answer to this,
you've drawn your own conclusions. I guess the only thing that I
might add would be the importance of a good sense of humor … the
ability to laugh at oneself kinda does it for me.
Thank you for your time and good luck to all.
