Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in Virginia, but lived most of my life in Michigan. I
just moved to Florida after spending the last two and half years
living in Midtown Atlanta, so I am at home in the city or the
suburbs. I would describe myself as spunky, adaptable, and
self-reliant with a hint of sassy sprinkled in for good measure. I
don't ask for much. Just good company, honesty, open communication
I am a sponge for learning and have many interests, so if you have
skills or interests you would like to share I am up for just about
anything. I enjoy going for bike rides and walks. One of my goals
was to complete a 10K, which I had the opportunity to do with my
sister - the Lilac walk/run on Mackinac Island. I'd like to do more
if you are up for it. I also enjoy spending time with family and
friends, mine and maybe someday yours, because there is nothing
better than being with the people who love you most.
I also love to travel, and given the choice I like to do it with
that special someone. Road trips, weekend getaways, a nice romantic
cruise perhaps... I prefer not to travel alone. My goal is to visit
as many states and countries as I can in my lifetime. It would be
so much more fun with that special someone.
I am hoping to meet a nice SINGLE guy who enjoys spending time with
the lady in his life, and if the chemistry is right is also looking
for a long term relationship. I enjoy being part of a couple and
love to go on adventures together, but I realize there are times
when you may want to hang with the guys or indulge in your own
I am looking for someone whose life compliments mine. You don't
have to be perfect, but you do need to be honest and sincere, with
a great sense of humor and a passion for life and love. A knight in
scratched/dented armor is just fine. And if your horse happens to
be a motorcycle, even better. You don't even have to have hair....a
shaved head or bald, I find both sexy. Oh, and you must love
oatmeal scotchies, peanut butter cookies and carrot cake. I'll
leave the barbequing to you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I lived in the suburbs in Michigan, then for a change of pace chose
to live in the city when I moved to Atlanta, and loved it, and now
I am enjoying condo life and the slower pace of a smaller town in
Florida. I am busy learning about myself, my new city, hoping to
make new friends, and challenging myself with basic repairs and
home improvement projects in my condo. Although... it would be nice
to have a strong muscular man around for the heavy lifting.
I've been divorced since August of 2011. He decided he wanted a
very different lifestyle that I couldn't agree to, so we opted to
end our marriage. The ex and I are on good terms, so I have no
baggage left to deal with there. I have a grown son and daughter,
and three grandchildren who live in Michigan, so I drive back home
to visit family and friends whenever I get the chance. It's a good
thing I love road trips.
As for work, I am an instructional designer, so I am lucky enough
to be able to use my creative side to help others learn.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I like everything but most rap, most heavy metal and blue grass

Italian is my favorite. I also love Mexican food, a good steak and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Italian food
- Bottled water
- Good lovin' from a good man
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Meeting the love of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking about how nice it would be to have that special someone to
share Friday nights with.
