My nick is Yiddish for an attractive, unconventional woman (or a cheap, showy trinket, I’ll let you decide!)
I'm deeply liberal. I read a LOT-- of everything. I like movies, flea markets, walking, and a whole lot of everything else. I have odd ideas about Religion, Philosophy, Science, child rearing, Literature, Art, Politics, and everything else that matters, and I am damned opinionated about it, too.
None the less, I am warm, sweet, sympathetic, great with kids, a super cook; intelligent, a sparkling conversationalist, witty, with a great sense of humor, a radiant personality, and a zest for life.
Since I’m a female past a certain age, I don’t have the figure, or the muscle tone, or even the hair I had when I was 25. What I *do* have is the wisdom, the experience, and the compassion that comes from living a full life and raising three children well and seeing them in college.
One of the advantages of being older is that I am comfortable in my own skin. I know who I am, I like and accept myself, and I really like my life right now. This is why I am not willing to relocate.
I have been sober with the help of God and the 12 steps for 30 years. My idea of partying involves a lot of fun and no drugs or alcohol. I am also bi-polar, and like most people who have lived a full life, come with some issues (all of which are under control).
You should know I love talking, which is a great way to get to know one another and make new friends. Drop me a line, and I'll write you back.
One more minor thing - If you are seeking more than friendship and motherly advice, please be older than my sons. In fact, being done with your 30s would be awesome. If you are younger than that, I will most likely ask you how school is going for you. Thanks so much.
What I am looking for is a real friendship, because nothing of value can develop that is not based on that. Get that, and we can see what develops from there.
