I have been living in Ohio since 2000, moved to Cbus from Wapakoneta in Dec 2011 and am SO HAPPY to be back in a bigger city. Previously have lived in Atlanta GA, NYC, South Amboy NJ, Jacksonville FL, Guam, and Yokohama and Yokosuka Japan (ex Navy wife). Have travelled to Korea, Mexico, the Caribbean, England, Hawaii, and back and forth across this country. There are many places I would still love to experience.
I work as a Loan Officer and have been in and out of the mortgage biz since the late 70's. I took a hellish segue into restaurant management for about 7 years, but came to my senses and am back in the mortgage business now. I really love my job!
I am a home renovation junkie and a city rat. My idea of a great weekend is exploring my city to check out what it has to offer...cool stuff to see, yard sales and flea markets, festivals, fun places for a beer, and super yummy food. I also love road trips anywhere, anytime.
I love to garden (flowers, veggies & herbs) because it thrills me to be able to step into my yard, clip off a few things and make a great meal.
I’m a reading fanatic… many different genres. Also love all sorts of music with the exception of main stream country (but love alt country/Americana/rockabilly/bluegrass/roots). Not much into rap or hip-hop but there are certain artists of those genres that I like.
I’m a fan of classic cars, I love roller coasters (front seat, hands in the air), thunder and lightening, mountain roads, blustery beaches, feeding the fireplace, sleeping, breakfast on my porch, and Fall.
I have 2 wonderful daughters who are grown and living on their own in Lima and Columbus. They are my best friends, my most positive influences, and the 2 people in this entire world whom I admire the most.
Also have 3 dogs, all rescues and not particularly well behaved (but we do try). I like cats but don't have any because 2 of my dogs think it's fine sport to chase them. Also would consider my life fairly complete if I never had to deal with a litter box again.
In a relationship, I am looking for a guy who is interesting, unique, fun, open-minded, adventurous, intelligent, adaptable, financially stable (don't interpret this as a requirement of wealth, although that wouldn't suck :) ), emotionally stable, look good to me, industrious, skilled, comfortable, loving, affectionate, passionate, supportive, and hopefully a fellow city rat. I know this sounds like I'm expecting alot, but I am looking for a partner that will enhance my life. I'm not lonely or desperate, and I feel complete whether I'm in a relationship or not. But there is a bit of a void...so many things in life are better when shared.
